Deadline reports that “Chicago Med” will welcome Sarah Rafferty as a recurring character on the show and see Lily Harris appear as a guest star on the November 3 episode, “A Square Peg in a Round Hole.”
Rafferty is a “Suits” alum who joined “Chicago Med” last week, appearing as Dr. Pamela Blake, a talented surgeon whose daughter had just experienced a terrible car accident. In her first episode, Dr. Blake butted heads with Dr. Crockett (Dominic Rains), who was initially put in charge of her daughter’s care, and Sharon Goodwin (S. Epatha Merkerson), who pointed out the ethical issues of operating on a family member. While it was assumed that Rafferty might simply have a role at the time of her appearance, it seems that her performance has earned her a regular spot on “Chicago Med.”
Lily Harris will be making both her first appearance on the show — and her professional debut as an actress — when she guest stars on next week’s episode. Deadline notes that she will play Astrid Meadows, a woman experiencing hallucinations. While there aren’t many other clues as to what fans can expect from Astrid, Harris is the daughter of actors Amy Madigan and Ed Harris, meaning her appearance could be the start of an exciting career.
