Having come from a family that’s worked in the medical profession, Nick Gehlfuss already came in with a sense of appreciation when he landed the role of Dr. Will Halstead in Chicago Med. During a previous interview with Gehlfuss, I asked him about how his appreciation for doctors has deepened thanks to his experience on the show. Gehlfuss audio is available after the jump!
Torrey DeVitto plays Dr. Natalie Manning on Chicago Med, another successful Dick Wolf produced show that should have staying power. During the NBC/Universal Summer Press Day, I asked DeVitto to briefly pick a film that continues to inspire her as an actress and a moviegoer. She upped the ante and picked two films that I also love.
Nick Gehlfuss and Brian Tee star in Chicago Med, the latest series from prolific TV writer/producer Dick Wolf (Chicago P.D., Chicago Fire). In prep for their roles, the actors shadowed medical professionals (Tee spent time at Whittier Presbyterian and Gehlfuss did research at Cook County).
Premiering November 17, Chicago Med is the latest show from Emmy winning executive producer Dick Wolf, whose prodigious TV career includes the recent successes of Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. Colin Donnell (Arrow, The Affair) is Dr. Connor Rhodes, the newest doctor who’s trying to get his feet wet at Chicago Med.
