Lowest Rated: 5% Nature Calls (2012)

Birthday: Feb 03, 1965

Birthplace: Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Mixing a weary vulnerability with intelligence and strength, Maura Tierney became best known to audiences for her Emmy-nominated role as nurse-turned doctor Abby Lockhart on "ER" (NBC, 1994-2009). A series regular on the cult comedy "NewsRadio" (NBC, 1995-99) for five seasons, the wry Tierney provided strong support in the films "Liar Liar" (1996) with Jim Carrey and "Forces of Nature" (1999) with Ben Affleck, as well as essayed several acclaimed stage roles. The actress made headlines in 2010 when she had to drop out of the series "Parenthood" (NBC, 2010-15) when she announced that she was undergoing treatment for breast cancer. Always a compelling presence, the actress was a welcome addition to any project, and fans and critics were pleased to see a healthy Tierney back on screen in legal drama "The Whole Truth" (ABC 2010-11), an arc on "The Good Wife" (CBS 2009-2016) and dark drama "The Affair" (Showtime 2014- ).
