2 of 8 NBC


Margulies shot to fame as George Clooney's other half, Nurse Carol Hathaway, on the NBC hit. Carol was originally supposed to die in the pilot, but the character screened so well with test audiences that producers rewrote the storyline. Good thing because Margulies went on the win a best supporting actress in a drama Emmy for the first season. She was nominated every year during her six-year tenure and remains the only regular ER cast member to win an Emmy.

Margulies played a flight attendant in the 2006 cult film — perhaps much to the chagrin of her parents. "[My parents] have been so supportive of me and have such interest in my life and every role I take — except Snakes On A Plane," she quipped during her acceptance speech at this year's Screen Actors Guild Awards. "They weren't so proud of that one."
