Dr. Kerry Weaver, portrayed by Laura Innes, is a fictional character on the NBC television series ER; she first appeared as a recurring character actor in season 2, and became a regular cast member in season 3. In January 2007, Innes left the show after 12 years with the character of Kerry Weaver moving to Florida. Very little of Weaver's background was revealed to the audience early on. The character exhibits a limp in her gait, which is aided by the use of a forearm crutch, later revealed to be caused by congenital hip dysplasia in episode 14 of season 11, and that she had lived for a period in Africa. Weaver arrived at County General as Chief Resident and later became an attending physician. She was promoted to Chief of Emergency Medicine and finally Hospital Chief of Staff. Her administrative position often forced her to make unpleasant decisions that drew hostility from her fellow physicians, as when she fired Jeanie Boulet in Season 4. Having had some heterosexual relationships, Weaver eventually came out as a lesbian. Her sexual orientation was a key point in some of the episodes, particularly when she fought in court to keep her son, Henry.
