The cast of Chicago Med is finally starting to get figured out and they have added an amazing new cast member. TV Line shared the news tonight that Julie Berman has joined the cast. Fans know Berman from the hit daytime show General Hospital. Julie played the part of Lulu Spencer up until 2013 when she left the show to do other things. Emme Rylan replaced her on the show as Lulu and is still playing the part today. Fans were very upset to see her go, but a lot of them will follow Julie to her new spot on Chicago Med. This is a new spin-off coming that will go right along with Chicago Fire and Chicago PD on NBC.
Julie Berman is a three-time Emmy winner and is an actress that will bring experience to the role. Berman will not be seen on the show until the third episode of the season where Berman will show up as Toni Zanetti, who is described as “a brilliant, self-assured attending surgeon who does not suffer fools.”
Julie Berman is gorgeous and fans will want to see her find love. A sexy doctor like this will be the perfect match for a cross-over with a sexy fireman or police officer. You never know who they will end up setting Julie Berman’s character up with but looking at her you know there will be fireworks and a love story that fans are going to love to follow.
Julie Berman has been on a Hulu exclusive show called Casual and was also on a few various shows as a guest star including Jane the Virgin and Two and a Half Men. This will be Julie’s first starring role since she ended her time as Lulu Spencer on General Hospital and everyone is very excited for her return.
Chicago Tribune recently spoke to actor Brian Tee, who will also be joining the hit show alongside Julie Berman. He is very excited about the show and shared some of what fans can expect to see on this new hit series when it starts later in 2015.
“It’s gripping storytelling. I think our writing is amazing. It’s amongst the same storylines you’ll see on ‘Fire’ and ‘P.D.,’ but it’s set in a medical setting. I think Dick really wants to make it as real as possible. We’re really trying to relive the true-life stories of medical professionals. The closer we get to their reality, the more we can honor them, and for us, feel really proud of the work we’ve done.”
After that, Tee went on to explain what you can expect from his character on the show.
“Ethan is a third-year resident over at the hospital. It feels like he really came from a troubled youth. He definitely has a dark side to him but he’s brought himself up. He went though the military and is still serving in the Naval Reserves and now found his passion as a doctor here in Chicago. He just wants to do the right thing, but sometimes he crosses the line in that.”
Chicago Med is going to be a great addition to the fall lineup. Julie Berman is the perfect actress to be added to this cast. Fans can’t wait to see what Julie does on this show and if more Emmys are coming for her. Julie is a very seasoned actress.
Even though there has been a lot of talk about Chicago Med, this show will not be coming to NBC until November 17. It will air new episodes each week on Tuesday nights. Are you excited about the casting of Julie Berman as Dr. Zanetti on Chicago Med? Sound off in the comments on your thoughts.
