    On July 11, 2012, during the filming of a "Good Wife" episode in which she was guest-starring, actress Kristin Chenoweth was struck by a falling piece of lighting equipment. She was knocked unconscious by the blow and was taken to the hospital in an ambulance. After several months of recovery, in which it was unsure if she would be able to return to her role, Chenoweth reported in September 2012 that her medical issues included not being able to "form a sentence after it happened"; a skull fracture; and continuing pain in her ribs and hip.

    According to Julianna Margulies, after three exhausting years juggling the demanding show schedule and dealing with her baby's first years, she made a deal with creators Robert King and Michelle King. Starting in season 4, for those big courtroom scenes that take several hours to be filmed completely, Margulies would shot the scenes where Alicia is and active part first, then they would shot scenes with the other actors where she would have to be on the background for coverage once or twice and then she would leave set to prepare her next scenes or have the rest of the day off.
