Chad's Co-Stars Brief Bios

Margaret Colin

Margaret Colin is best known for her co-starring roles in the feature films Independence Day with Bill Pullman and Jeff Goldbloom, and The Devil's Own, opposite Harrison Ford and Brad Pitt. Born and raised in New York, she attended Baldwin High School, in Baldwin, New York, graduating in 1976.
She started her acting career on the soap The Edge Of Night. This was followed by several TV series including, The Wright Verdicts, Legwork, and later had a recurring role in the hit CBS series Chicago Hope. Aside from starring in numerous television and movies-of-the-week, Margaret could also be seen on the silver screen.
No stranger to the stage, she earned the 1998 Theatre World Award for Outstanding Broadway Debut for her Broadway performance in Jackie: An American Life. Some of her Off Broadway work includes Aristocrats, for which she was nominated for a Drama Desk Award and Sight Unseen. She recently became a member The Actors Studio and starred in their production of The Last Moons.
Although extremely talented and praised by her peers, for a while it seemed as if Margaret would be stuck floundering around in "character actor" obscurity. All that changed when she landed a starring role opposite Eric Close on the TV series Now And Again in 1999, quickly bringing her to the attention of mainstream America.
Margaret currently lives in the New York area with her husband and two children.
