Biography: Sherry Stringfield (born June 24, 1967) is a television actress best known for her role of Susan Lewis on the show ER.
She graduated from Purchase College in 1989 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, having roomed with fellow actress Parker Posey. She got her first role on the soap opera Guiding Light, playing Christina "Blake" Thorpe from 1989 until 1992. After three years, she left the show, but soon returned to the small screen in a role in the first season of NYPD Blue; unsatisfied, she was released early from her contract.
With minimal delay she became one of the original cast members of ER. Her personal success mirrored the show's success: she was nominated for Emmy Awards as lead actress during each of her first three seasons of the show. But a desire for a "normal life" prompted her to leave the successful prime-time drama early in its third season.
After leaving, she married, taught at her alma mater and took roles in films such as 54 and Autumn in New York. After a few years she approached the producers of ER and then rejoined the cast in 2001, the show's eighth season.
