      Birthday: May 26, 1958

      Birthplace: Brooklyn, New York, USA

      Margaret Colin, the daughter of a NYC policeman, came to the attention of TV audiences during the early 1980s with her portrayal of crusading cop Margot Montgomery Hughes on the CBS daytime drama "As the World Turns" (1979-82). She also appeared as a tough NYPD detective who liked to gamble on the short-lived series "The Wright Verdicts" (CBS, 1995) and was on the side of the law as a dedicated assistant district attorney in the sitcom "Foley Square" (CBS, 1985-86). Based in New York, Colin commuted to L.A. for the short-lived "Sibs" (ABC, 1991-92), in which she was the neurotic middle sister to Marsha Mason and Jamie Gertz, and a recurring role as a terminally ill doctor romanced by Dr. Aaron Shutt (Adam Arkin) on "Chicago Hope" (CBS, 1994). She appeared sporadically in TV-movies, including "The Return of Sherlock Holmes" (CBS, 1987), "Warm Hearts, Cold Feet" (CBS, 1987) and "In the Shadow of Evil" (CBS, 1995). Colin was featured in the sci-fi hit "Independence Day" (1996), as a presidential press secretary helping in the fight against an alien invasion. She next teamed with Harrison Ford as a married couple who unwittingly harbored an Irish terrorist (Brad Pitt) in Alan J. Pakula's "The Devil's Own" (1997). Taking a brief respite from films, Colin made her Broadway debut as former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy in the comedy "Jackie." More recently she landed the recurring role of Eleanor Waldorf in "Gossip Girl" (CW, 2007-12) and as Linda Wozniak in "Shades of Blue" (NBC, 2015-18).
