Julianna Margulies has clarified comments that she turned down the chance to appear on The Good Fight.
Earlier reports suggested she declined The Good Wife spin-off because she was offered a guest artist fee.
Speaking on radio she spoke about equal pay for women and men.
She explained, “…. they were twisting it that I didn’t want to be on the show, that I didn’t think it was good enough. I watch the show, I love the show. But I’m not a guest star. You don’t pay me a guest-star salary. I would get a guest-star salary if I went and did SVU — it’s not my show. I wouldn’t ask for what I got paid as Alicia Florrick. I also know for a fact that any male star who got asked to go on a spinoff of their show would have been offered at least $500,000. I know that for a fact.”
Margulies will next appear in The Hot Zone on National Geographic channel.
The Good Fight airs in Australia on SBS.
