I am not sure if the show ever stated how old Kerry is but I believe the actress, Laura Innes, is about 41 or 42 years old. I assume the character is probably around the same.

We cannot assume that Kerry Weaver is the same age as Laura Innes. ER , as well as many other shows, use actors much older or much younger than the character they are depicting. Goran Visnjic is 28. I highly doubt that his character Luka is younger than 33-34. Eriq LaSAlle is 37. His characater should be around 33. Christine Elise was in her early thirties when she portrayed Harper Tracy who was probaly around 24. I think Think Kerry is most likely in her mid to late thirties.

Kerry was a 4th year resident in Season 2. -If- she had followed a traditional medical education, that would have put her around 29 then, and 34 in Season 7. However, some believe that Kerry put in some time with the Peace Corps or something like that, which would make her an indeterminate number of years older.

Kerry mentioned working in Africa to Anna DelAmico during Season 4. (Have to check the ep guide for the epi name. It was the one where the family planning clinic got bombed.) I don't remember if Kerry was specific, but it sounded like she was working as some kind of health care provider there. (Red Cross or Doctors w/o Borders, perhaps?) I can't be certain if she was a doctor or not.

Kerry did mention working in Africa, but I don't think it was made clear whether this was before or after she became a doctor. It also could have been during, if (for example) she did part of medical or her residency in Africa. Kerry's past being such a mystery it's really impossible to say (based on the episodes themselves) how old she is.

Lavinia, I agree w/ your estimate. I think of her as late thirties, coming up on 40.
