Maura Tierney stars in "The Good Wife" on CBS in a recurring role as a self-made millionaire who has become the doyenne of Chicago Democratic politics. Tierney also recently recurred in FX's "Rescue Me," as Kelly McPhee, and starred in ABC's legal drama "The Whole Truth" as Kathryn Peale.

One of the brightest acting talents to emerge in recent years, Maura Tierney starred for eight seasons on the top rated series "ER," for which she received her first Emmy nomination for her performance as Abby Lockhart, a former medical student who's resumed her career in the ER. Tierney is also a familiar face to television viewers for her four-year role as news writer Lisa Miller on NBC's critically acclaimed comedy "NewsRadio." In 2010, she starred in six episodes of the critically acclaimed "Rescue Me" as the newest love interest of Dennis Leary's character, and she will reprise her role for their 2011 season.

On the big screen Tierney was seen in the Universal film "Baby Mama" with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, as well as New Line Cinema's comedy, "Semi-Pro," opposite Will Ferrell and Woody Harrelson. She has also starred in such films as Magnolia Pictures' "Diggers," opposite Paul Rudd and Ken Marino, Twentieth Century Fox's comedy, "Welcome to Mooseport," with Ray Romano and Gene Hackman, and "Instinct," opposite Sir Anthony Hopkins and Cuba Gooding Jr.

Tierney earned critical praise for her role in "Primary Colors" as well as for her work opposite Jim Carrey in the smash hit "Liar Liar." She also appeared in the Christopher Nolan-directed "Insomnia," with Al Pacino, Hilary Swank and Robin Williams. Additional film credits include "Go-Getter" with Zooey Deschanel, and "Finding Amanda" with Matthew Broderick, "Diggers," "Welcome to Mooseport," "Instinct," "Forces of Nature," "Primal Fear," "The Temp," "White Sands," "Oxygen" "Insomnia," and "Scotland PA."

Tierney had her first starring role on television in Norman Lear's comedy series "704 Hauser Street." Her additional credits include starring in the television films "Out of Darkness," "Student Exchange" and "Crossing the Mob." She guest-starred in the series "Growing Pains," "Family Ties" and NBC's "Law & Order."

Tierney, who has always been interested in the dramatic arts, attended New York University and Circle-in-the-Square Theatre School. Her stage credits include roles in "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead," "The Bald Soprano," "Baby with Bathwater," "Danny and the Deep Blue Sea" and "Talking With."

In 2006 Tierney starred in the off-Broadway production of Neil LaBute's "Some Girl(s)" at the Lucille Lortel Theater, joining the cast with Eric McCormack, Fran Drescher, Judy Reyes and Brooke Smith. In addition she starred in Nicky Silver's "Three Changes" with Dylan McDermott, and most recently in The Wooster Group's "North Atlantic" with Frances McDormand.

Born and raised in Boston, she currently divides her time between Los Angeles and New York.
