Julianna Margulies kept quite a secret from fans of The Good Wife. It seems she knew for quite some time about the killing off of Will Gardner (played by Josh Charles) on the most recent episode of the award winning show on Sunday night. The show’s creators Robert and Michelle King kept Margulies apprised from the very beginning about their plan.
“They are so respectful, they ran it by me first before bringing it to the Network, and Josh and I both thought it was a brilliant idea,” Margulies wrote on The Good Wife’s Facebook page, where she also answered many dismayed and shocked fan’s questions following Will Gardner’s shooting death.
Robert and Michelle King also shared their sentiments via Facebook in a letter written to the show’s–and Josh Charles’s character’s–fans following Sunday night’s shocking episode of The Good Wife.
Julianna Margulies was asked if Alicia Florrick will ever find love again now that Will Gardner is dead.
“I hope so, don’t we all wish that for anyone who has lost a love in their life? That being said, it will take a long time,” she answered.
She was also asked what might come next for Alicia Florrick and her husband–played by Chris Noth.
“Watch, the episode following next week, Alicia comes up with the answer for her and Peter,” she replied.
One of the most fun questions Julianna Margulies was asked was whether George Clooney or Josh Charles was more fun to play love scenes with. Her answer to this one was very diplomatic.
“I got lucky two times!!” she said.
