She says the experience, which she describes as strange, lonely and extremely constrictive, brought her to tears three times.But it was worth it, she says, to tell a story that will allow audiences to see Ebola as a global problem. Margulies hopes the series will drive home the importance of scientists and research.“The Hot Zone ” premieres on National Geographic on May 27.Amanda Lee Myers, The Associated Press For ‘Hot Zone,’ Margulies confronts claustrophobia and Ebola AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FILE – This June 7, 2018 file photo shows Julianna Margulies at the 46th AFI Life Achievement Award Honoring George Clooney in Los Angeles.
