On The Good Wife, the new State’s Attorney Alicia Florrick is ambushed with questions about her leaked emails during a television interview. It’s TV journalist Petra Moritz who catches Alicia off-guard. Before the on-camera interview, Petra’s colleague warns her that “people don’t like it when you turn on their heroes.” She replied, “Are you kidding? That’s what people live for.”
Moritz is portrayed by Lily Rabe. She’s best known for her roles as Sister Mary Eunice McKee / Misty Day / Nora Montgomery on American Horror Story. She’s also working on the new ABC sci-fi drama The Whispers.
