Sherry Stringfield Wiki Bio
Sherry Lea Stringfield was born in Colorado Springs, Colorado USA, on 24 June 1967, so under the zodiac sign of Cancer and holding American nationality – she is popular for her acting career, particularly for her role of Dr. Susan Lewis in the “ER” NBC medical drama.
Early life and education
Sherry spent only a small part of her childhood in Colorado Springs, as her family moved to Albuquerque in New Mexico soon after she was born – they didn’t spend much time there either, as they moved to Spring in Texas which is where Sherry spent the rest of her childhood. She hasn’t shared much about her parents as she appreciates their privacy, but she grew up alongside two younger siblings.
Sherry fell in love with acting during the time she spent at the Klein High School – she appeared in numerous musicals and plays during those four years, such as “Oklahoma”, “Mother Courage”, and “Fiddler on the Roof”.
After she matriculated from Klein, Sherry went on to attend the Acting Conservatory of State University of New York at Purchase, together with her friend Parker Posey. She needed help from her college speech teacher to work on her accent as she grew up in Texas – Sherry graduated from college in 1989 with a bachelor’s degree in fine arts.
Career of an actress and the “ER” series
Sherry launched her career with the role of Christina Blake Thorpe in the “Guiding Light” CBS Daytime soap opera – she in the cast from 1989 to 1992, then took the rest of the year off to rest and travel around Europe – she visited all the most popular destinations there including Paris, Venice, and England, but missed acting which is why she returned to the US to play Laura Kelly in the first episode of the “NYPD Blue” ABC drama in 1993.
Sherry rose to prominence after winning her role in the NBC’s medical drama entitled “ER”. She was part of the series during its first three seasons, and the audience loved her – she was nominated for an Emmy Award for each of the three seasons – apparently the show was popular only thanks to her. However, just as what happened before, Sherry got tired of the tight schedules for shooting the series, and even though she was signed to shoot for five seasons, she decided that she wanted to cancel her contract. As that was not possible, she had to sign a no-work agreement meaning that she was not to work on TV until her original contract with “ER” expired – this wasn’t a problem for Sherry, as she wanted to spend her time travelling and not working on TV.
The producers of the show didn’t like her decision to quit, and tried to talk her out of it, but without any success. Everybody was talking about Sherry in Hollywood because of this decision, and her last episode which aired in November 1996 was viewed by more than 37 million people – the TV executive Dick Robertson signed a deal worth millions around the same time when Sherry quit the show, meaning that the show could’ve made her very rich if she’d only stayed.

Even though people somewhat disliked her for leaving the series, the producers still asked her numerous times to come back to the set, which she refused to do – however, Sherry’s mind changed after she became a mom and talked to the “ER” producers, and rejoined the cast in 2001 when the show was in its eight season. Her first episode was watched by more than 26.7 million people which meant that the series was now first in ratings – she was part of the show for another four seasons before quitting again in August 2005, but returned in 2009 for the 331st episode “And in the End…” which marked the conclusion of the “ER” series.
