she played Felicia Marquand on a regular basis. On NBC’s Kings, she costarred with Ian McShane as Thomasina. She has also appeared on Law & Order, American Crime, and Gossip Girl.
She Will Take on The Part Again in Season 8, Which Will Debut on September 21, 2022.
She began working on Chicago Med in the show’s first season in 2015, and she has now appeared in 78 episodes spread across seven seasons. In Season 8, which will return on September 21, 2022, she will play the same part once more. The spin-off series Chicago Fire and Chicago PD have featured her character in a number of their episodes as well.
On May 25, 2022, the show’s seventh season finale aired, and it concluded with Drs. Dylan Scott (Guy Lockard) and Will Halstead (Gehlfuss) are trapped in a burning structure after aiding undercover detective Jo (Riley Voelkel).
