Sherry Lea Stringfield (born June 24, 1967) is an American actress. She is best known for playing the role of Dr. Susan Lewis on the medical television drama ER, a role for which she has received three Emmy Award nominations. Stringfield was one of ER's original cast, but she quit the show during its third season, despite being contractually tied to appear in five. She reprised the role in 2001, but quit once again in 2005.
Away from ER she has acted mainly on television, but she has also played various parts in films. Stringfield has famously left several major roles on successful television programs at the height of their popularity, which has led to her being nicknamed "The Goodbye Girl" in Hollywood.

This pretty, light-haired performer first came to the attention of daytime TV soap opera viewers as the nefarious Blake Lindsey on "Guiding Light" (CBS, from 1989 to 1992), a character who eventually ran off with her mother's boyfriend. Sherry Stringfield next showed up on the ABC drama "NYPD Blue" playing the Manhattan D.A. and ex-wife of officer John Kelly (David Caruso) during the first season (1993-94) of the series. In the much ballyhooed NBC medical drama "ER", Stringfield spent slightly more than two seasons (1994-96) playing Dr. Susan Lewis, a dedicated emergency room physician, something of a problem solver who managed to remain cool and in control under the intense pressure of life-and-death situations in an inner-city hospital.

Stringfield began acting in high school and later picked up a BFA in acting from the Acting Conservatory of SUNY at Purchase before moving to New York City. A few weeks after graduation, she was working in a theater box office when she was called in to audition for the role on "Guiding Light" which launched her career. In between tapings, she was able to make appearances in several Off-Broadway and Broadway productions. After leaving "ER", she taught acting at SUNY Purchase and was virtually unrecognizable in the small role of Steve Rubell's accountant in "54" (1998). The following year, she made a much ballyhooed return to NBC in the TV-movie "Border Line", which was executive produced by her former "ER" co-star Anthony Edwards. In a somewhat surprising move, Stringfield reprised her role of Dr. Susan Lewis on "ER" beginning in fall 2001.
