Taylor Schilling portrays Nurse Veronica Flanagan Callahan, who recently returned to Mercy Hospital from a tour in Iraq, in the medical drama "Mercy."
Schilling made her debut on the big screen in the role of Jackie in the First Independent Pictures film "Dark Matter," which co-starred Meryl Streep. The film, inspired by actual events, follows the journey of an ambitious Chinese scientist working towards his Ph.D. in America, only to be marginalized to the extent that he ultimately loses his way.
Schilling graduated with a B.A. in acting from Fordham University Lincoln Center. Her passion for acting led her to appear in various plays on the Bard College, NYU, and Fordham University stages. Schilling was the recipient for the Emerson College Playwright's Festival Outstanding Performance Award.
Schilling's hometown is Boston, Massachusetts, home to her favorite baseball team, the Red Sox. She currently resides in New York.
