With Emily Owens, M.D. about to premiere on The CW, it's time to get to know the actors and characters that will populate this lighthearted medical show. Thanks to a visit to the Vancouver set of the new series (courtesy of Warner Bros.), we were able to video interviews of the cast. Check them out here!WARNING: While I tried to cut out anything that might count as major Emily Owens, M.D. spoilers, it's just not possible to stop those actors from letting things slip. If one of these videos happens to give away a little bit, I apologize. Just don't be mean to me in the comments section!
First up, we have a short video with the titular star of Emily Owens, M.D.
, Mamie Gummer.
- If you want to know about Emily Owens' character, the fact that she hides everything before her friends come over (because those things are embarrassing) kind of explains it all.
- Those of you who truly believe that we all move on after high school will probably not like this show very much. Emily -- and all of the others -- have some very high school attitudes.
- By "first cut," Gummer means the first time her character actually operates on a real patient. Emily is a very good surgeon, so we can expect that to come soon.
The second video features an actor well-known to CW audiences, Justin Hartley (Smallville
). Hartley plays Will, a med-school friend of Emily's. Of course she has a crush on the handsome man...
- Sorry about the buzz. And the loud drilling noise. They were in the background of that particular set.
- How does Will feel about Emily? You can get a hint from what Justin Hartley has to say on the matter.
- It's not just about girls fighting over a guy.
- It's not about werewolves either. No matter what Justin Hartley says.
The next Emily Owens, M.D.
video features Aja Naomi King, who plays Emily's rival (since high school), Cassandra.
Cassandra is the rather talented and popular arch-nemesis on the show. Occasionally she is a friend too. You may or may not like her.
Up next, we have an actual friend for Emily, Tyra (Kelly McCreary).
The two young doctors meet at the hospital and quickly become friends -- by the end of the pilot, Emily is helping Tyra find a girlfriend. Tyra is actually the daughter of the hospital's chief of surgery, so there's some tension there.
One more of the young doctors, Micah Barnes (played by Michael Rady), is up next.
Because no good hospital drama would work without a few attractions, watch for things to get interesting between Micah and the others. Even if he thinks Will is far more attractive.
Finally, Necar Zadegan talks about playing the "boss" of all these new doctors, Dr. Gina Bandari.
Just ignore the thing about the sponges.Emily Owens, M.D.
premieres on Tuesday, October 16 at 9pm on The CW. Check back here at BuddyTV for more interviews -- and maybe a few spoilers!(Images courtesy of The CW)
