It's a wrap on the sets of The Good Wife and the leading lady of the show, Julianna Margulies, who plays Alicia, took a couple of things from there.
Speaking to People magazine, Margulies revealed that she is keeping two things from the set. "I am keeping Alicia's office chair and I bought Alicia's watch," she said. Sadly, we won't get to see Alicia's power haircut after the show ends as Margulies can't keep the wig. "The wig goes to CBS, I have no dibs on the wig," she added.
Fans of The Good Wife are expecting a whole lot from the finale of series which is just around the corner.
There have been all forms of speculation about what might go down, including the big one: the return of Josh Charles as Will Gardner as a flashback. Margulies' recent interview with Entertainment Weekly will give fans some clarity and prepare them just a little bit. Margulies dished about her own process preparing for the finale and what she though of it once she read it.
"The Kings always said it should end after year 7. I think they're right, but at the same time, it's going to be very hard to let go of a character and this family. The Kings had told me they knew how it was going to end. I said, 'Well, I don't want to know because I need to play in the moment.' When I read the last episode, I went, 'Oh my God.' It's pretty intense. And here's the horrible thing: Due to actors' schedules, we had to shoot the last scene of the last episode first. So that was just brutal."
Speaking to EW the actress revealed that the finale was nothing short of "intense" and that fans will either love it or hate it and there will be no in-between.
"Christine [Baranski] and I were filming the scene late on Friday night, and I looked at her and I said, 'The fans are either going to love this or they're going to hate this, but there's not going to be an in-between.' Usually I write to the Kings right away after I read the script. I know how hard they worked on the last script, but I couldn't write to them right away. I had to read it again. My husband said, 'Well, how is it?' And I said, 'I need to read it again.' Then I read it a third time and discussed it with my husband.
"I knew I loved it and I knew it was brilliant, but emotionally, I felt shaky after reading it. What's great about sitting down with someone who's not on the show was being able to hear his take on the ending and how these are all such complex characters. He said it all had to end in a complex way in order for it to stay true. He was right. And so I read it a fourth time with that in mind. The script for the last episode came with a bottle of wine from the Kings with the note: 'It wouldn't be right to not give Alicia a bottle of wine for when she reads this.' I decided not to have the wine until I was ready to email them. After the fourth read, I opened the wine and wrote to them: 'It's nothing short of brilliant.'"
The finale of Season 7 will air on May 8.
The latest episode, entitled 'Party,' aired on April 24.
