Wednesday, May 6 marks George Clooney’s 59th birthday, and he received a special shoutout from former “ER” co-star Julianna Margulies.
Margulies — who played nurse Carol Hathaway opposite Clooney’s Dr. Doug Ross on the hit medical drama — took to Instagram to share a special photo from the set.
“Happy Birthday to my sweet pal George Clooney,” she wrote accompanying a vintage photo of her and Clooney.
“This picture was taken right after we filmed our very last scene together in Seattle for #ER,” she continued.
Margulies concluded by adding a few pandemic-themed hashtags aimed at President Donald Trump, referencing the recent press conference when he suggested scientists study whether COVID-19 can be treated by ingesting or injecting cleaning products: #staysafe, #dontdrinkbleach, #dontinjectlysol, #listentoscience.
In a 2018 appearance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers”, she discussed how she and Clooney reunited in Seattle for that surprise appearance in the final season of “ER”.
“We did all of that in secret,” she explained. “No, I mean, not even the cast and crew knew,” Margulies shared. “They flew us to Seattle, but they flew George on the Warner Bros. private jet. I took commercial.”
