First things first, and fame isn't one of them for Sherry Stringfield.
"Why does anybody want to be famous?" said Stringfield, who walked away from two hit television shows. "You know what's important to me? Having lunch! Pasta! Seeing my friends! Is that so crazy?"Crazy were the looks she got when she decided to quit "ER" last year after less than two years. In 1994, she left "NYPD Blue," where she played ex-wife to then-star David Caruso.
She left Los Angeles for New York and a boyfriend, although the relationship didn't last, she told Entertainment Weekly in its Oct. 17 edition. Now she is teaching acting, doing voice-overs and preparing for her first movie, a drama called "54," co-starring Mike Myers and Salma Hayek.
