Dr. Natalie Manning
Played by Torrey DeVitto
Torrey DeVitto stars as Dr. Natalie Manning, an emergency pediatrics resident who is exploring a budding romance with Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss), in the NBC drama “Chicago Med.”
On the film front, DeVitto was recently cast in "Amy Makes Three" as Carla Forrest, a happily married wife who loses her child after giving birth prematurely. The film takes a twisted turn after Carla and her husband, played by Mike Doyle, discover the ghost of their former child.
Born and raised in Huntington, New York, to Mary and Liberty DeVitto, the long-time drummer for Billy Joel, DeVitto spent most of her early years traveling on the road with her parents, and by the time she could walk, DeVitto had fallen in love with music and acting.
With music in her genes, she began playing violin at the age of six. Soon, she began to study acting and dance, and by the time she was 15, she was working in commercials and modeling professionally. Her first acting break came in 1999, when she participated in the Aaron Spelling production "Safe Harbor." One year later, she booked the Nickelodeon pilot "Noah Knows Best."
After graduating high school, she moved to Los Angeles, where her career as an actress began to take off. She landed the role of Meredith Fell in The CW television series "The Vampire Diaries" and the role of Melissa in ABC Family's hit show "Pretty Little Liars." However, she is most notable for her performance as Carrie on The CW drama series "One Tree Hill."
DeVitto's additional television credits include guest roles on "Scrubs," "Dawson's Creek," "The King of Queens," "Drake & Josh," "CSI: Miami" and "Castle."
DeVitto is very active with a number of philanthropic organizations and is also a Hospice Ambassador. She strongly supports PETA and the Humane Society of the United States. Most recently, she worked alongside the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) to raise awareness for Mental Health Month in May. DeVitto joined NAMI to share her own story and the importance of living stigma-free of mental illnesses.
She also makes time to dote on her dogs Beau and Homie, which were adopted at Much Love Animal Rescue, a pet adoption agency in Los Angeles.
