Early life and family

Sherry Lea Stringfield was born on 24 June 1967, Colorado Springs, Colorado USA, so under the sign of Cancer, and holding American nationality. Little is known about her family members, except that her grandmother was Swedish (Sherry’s father’s mother). She only once shared she had two younger siblings, but she never mentioned whether they are brothers or sisters.

Sherry and her family moved a lot, first to Albuquerque, New Mexico, then to the suburbs of Houston, Texas, where Sherry spent most of her childhood and youth. As for now, Sherry lives in Los Angeles.


Sherry attended Klein High School in Texas and matriculated in 1985. Everyday Sherry had to go 48 kilometers on a round trip to get to school, as it was far away from her hometown, but it’s worth saying that Klein High School has other notable alumni, among them such actors and actresses as Lee Pace (starred in “The Hobbit” trilogy), Lynn Collins (the star of “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”) and Matthew Bomer (who played in the “White Collar” TV series).

Then Sherry entered the Purchase College, the Acting Conservatory of SUNY (State University of New York) and shared classes with another future popular actress, Parker Posey (who gained major prominence for her work in “Dazed and Confused” (1993)). Sherry graduated with a BA in Fine Arts in 1989.


Early career

While studying in high school, Sherry participated in several musicals, such as “Mother Courage”, “Oklahoma” and “Fiddler on the Roof”. While in university, Sherry appeared in many off-Broadway plays – her college speech teacher helped her a lot in controlling her Texas accent!

In 1989 Sherry debuted on TV in the soap opera entitled “Guiding Light” (1952-2009), and was busy in the series from through 1992, and after that she was so tired that she took a year off her acting career to breath out, and to travel around Europe. After her trip she returned to her work, and was offered the role of Laura Michaels Kelly in “NYPD Blue” (1993 – 2005) working side by side with her on-screen ex-husband David Caruso who played the character of officer John Kelly. Somehow Sherry felt like a fish out  of water while working in the series, and quit the project before her contract was even over.


In 1994 Sherry got the role which separated her life to “before” and “after”. She was to play the part of Dr. Susan Lewis in the “ER” drama series (1994 – 2009). She was nominated for Emmy Awards in the category “Best Lead Actress” three times for every season she appeared in it, however, even though she was tied by contract with the series and had to appear in five seasons, she decided to quit after the third season, and did it despite the unpleasant and uncomfortable feelings which surrounded the situation. – as Sherry quit much earlier than she should have, the contract forbade her to appear in any TV series or movie. She made herself busy with script analysis classes that she taught, and also directed a bunch of plays in the university she studied in.

Happy Birthday Sherry Stringfield!
