Biography

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). Truth is, she doesn't even know how to drive a car and while starring in "Leg Work," a 1987 primetime CBS series, had to be towed in a Porsche. She was also on the side of the law as a dedicated assistant district attorney in the sitcom "Foley Square" (CBS, 1985-86). Based in New York, where her husband, Justin Deas, is an award-winning soap opera actor, 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 has also 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).
