Actress Julianna Margulies credits her dentist with landing her the lead role in new US TV drama Canterbury’s Law.
The former ER star was visiting her New York dentist when she spotted Denis Leary in the waiting room and introduced herself to the actor.
And just one week later, Leary – who is an executive producer on Canterbury’s Law – cast Margulies in the show’s lead role – as a tough defence attorney.
“My dentist is like my surrogate father, and I had no idea Denis goes to the same dentist. So I see him, I go up and say hi, and a week later, I realise I’m working for him. OK, that’s weird,” she reveals.
Leary added: “I ran into her there (at the dentist), she was coming out, I was going in. I was a big admirer of her work, and we chatted for five minutes. She was funny and sweet.”
