March was born in Dallas, Texas, the daughter of John Abe March IV and wife Laura Len (née Irwin) and the sister of Charlotte. She has German, Dutch, Irish, and English ancestry. She attended Highland Park High School, the same high school Angie Harmon (of the original Law & Order) attended; March was a sophomore when Harmon was a senior. She began performing in plays in high school. In 1996 she graduated from the School of Speech (now School of Communication) at Northwestern University, where she majored in Theater and Hispanic Studies and was a member of the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority.
In 1999, March made her Broadway debut in the highly acclaimed production of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman, opposite Brian Dennehy. Her other career highlights include roles on the television series Early Edition and in the TV movie Since You’ve Been Gone.
March posed for Maxim Magazine in 2000 and also performed in the Broadway premiere of Eric Bogosian's Talk Radio, starring Liev Schreiber, in 2007. She more recently also starred in Howard Korder's Boy's Life alongside Jason Biggs. She also played Cissy Hathaway in the TV movie Jesse Stone: Night Passage (2006) starring Tom Selleck.
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Conviction
Her biggest career success to date has been her role as Assistant District Attorney Alexandra Cabot on the NBC crime drama Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, a role she played from 2000 to 2003. She departed in the season 5 episode "Loss", when Cabot is shot and placed in witness protection. She returned to the series for a six-episode arc season in season 10 and then continued as a main character in season 11. After her departure near the end of season 11, she returned again in season 13 as a recurring character.
March reprised her role as Cabot, now the Bureau Chief ADA of the homicide bureau, on the short-lived NBC courtroom drama Conviction, which debuted in spring 2006. The show, which was part of the Law & Order universe, only lasted one 13-episode season before being cancelled.
March lives in New York City. She married celebrity chef Bobby Flay on February 20, 2005. She has appeared on four of Flay's Food Network shows—Boy Meets Grill, Grill It! with Bobby Flay, Iron Chef America, and Throwdown with Bobby Flay—as a guest judge.
March became a celebrity ambassador to World of Children Awards in January 2010. She gave up her birthday to World of Children on July 23, 2010, to raise money for the non-profit. Additionally, she serves as a board member for Safe Horizon, an organization that provides support, prevents violence, and promotes justice for victims of crime and abuse.
March is a vocal advocate for women's rights and a supporter of Planned Parenthood. Her great-grandmother, Ruby Webster March, founded the West Texas Mother's Health Center in 1938, and the center is now a part of Planned Parenthood of West Texas.
