A Breakdown of the Current Chicago Med Cast

Here's who's on staff at Gaffney Chicago Medical Center.

Pictured: (l-r) Steven Weber as Dr. Dean Archer, Sarah Rafferty as Dr. Pamela Blake, S. Epatha Merkerson as Sharon Goodwin, Dominic Rains as Crockett Marcel

Chicago Med is Dick Wolf's third installment in the One Chicago universe, alongside Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. Needless to say, it's never a dull day in the Windy City, with Chicago Med focusing on the doctors and nurses of the emergency department of Gaffney Chicago Medical Center. 

The Chicago Med cast is a star-studded lineup of powerhouse performers that know the exact way to pull on the heartstrings of all One Chicago fans. Below, see the current list of actors on Chicago Med.

Nick Gehlfuss as Dr. Will Halstead

Gehlfuss plays Dr. Will Halstead, a One Chicago fan favorite who was first introduced as Jay Halstead's brother in Chicago P.D. and later became the focal character of Chicago Med. Will is the Supervising Attending Emergency Physician of Gaffney Medical Center and is always willing to do everything in his power to help his patients. 

Oliver Platt as Dr. Daniel Charles

While many medical dramas focus solely on the surgical side of hospital operations, Chicago Med also explores the mental health side of hospital life. Platt plays Dr. Daniel Charles, the Chief of Psychiatry at Gaffney Medical, and his performance never disappoints. Dr. Charles consistently challenges those who call themselves or other patients "crazy," instead compelling others to understand that with enough understanding, a solution is always possible, regardless of the mental health issue. 

Brian Tee as Dr. Ethan Choi

Dr. Ethan Choi is played by Brian Tee. Ethan never backs down from a challenge, always asserting his expertise while still practicing compassion with every interaction with his patients. The ER is a better place with Ethan in it. 

Marlyne Barrett as Maggie Campbell, RN

Barrett plays Maggie Campbell, the loving yet no-nonsense ED Charge Nurse of Gaffney Medical. She is the eyes, ears, and heart of Gaffney's ED. Maggie is endlessly dedicated to her position and loyal to all the physicians around her. Even when the situation becomes chaotic, which they have a tendency to do, you can trust Maggie will hold down the fort. 

S. Epatha Merkerson as Sharon Goodwin

Merkerson plays Sharon Goodwin, a tough-as-nails Chief of Patient and Medical Services at Gaffney Medical. Like Maggie, Sharon was the former ED Charge Nurse but now mainly handles the grueling business and media side of medical procedures. Her position often forces her to reconcile between what is legally correct and what is the right way to approach patient diagnoses. Because of her previous experience, Sharon can be very empathetic and protective of her fellow physicians.

Dominic Rains as Dr. Crockett Marcel

Every medical drama needs at least one chaotic physician to shake things up, and Rains fits the bill with his role as Dr. Crockett Marcel, a trauma surgeon at Chicago Med. Crockett is a skilled physician, but his hard partying tendencies can sometimes get him into trouble. 

Guy Lockard as Dr. Dylan Scott

Lockard was introduced to Chicago Med during Season 7 as a resident in the Emergency Medicine and Pediatrics Department. In his limited time on the show so far, Scott has shown his skill as an empathetic physician who's great at handling younger patients and characters. He has a background with the CPD, so many Chicago Med fans think he might crossover to future Chicago P.D. episodes in future seasons. 

Kristen Hager as Dr. Stevie Hammer

Hager is another new addition to the Chicago Med cast, joining Gaffney Medical as the Emergency Attending Physician with a mysterious history. Hager went to medical school with Will, where the two previously had a relationship, and she earned the nickname "The Hammer." She works closely with Will at Chicago Med, indicating the pair are now friends. Many fans fell in love with her tenacious personality instantly. 

Jessy Schram as Dr. Hannah Asher

Chicago Med's Hannah (Jessy Schram) And Will (Nick Gehlfuss)

Schram plays Dr. Hannah Asher, a complex but lovable obstetrician-gynecologist and recovering addict at Gaffney Medical. Hannah and Will dated throughout the series, but after Will discovered she relapsed and had become more manipulative, he made an anonymous tip that placed Hannah in rehab. Hannah's maintained sobriety for two years and returned in Season 7. She also decided to move into the same apartment building as Will. Does this mean the two former love birds might go back to their old ways? Chicago Med fans will have to see...

Steven Weber as Dr. Dean Archer

Weber plays Dr. Dean Archer, the Interim Chief of the ED and general antagonist throughout Seasons 6 and 7 of Chicago Med. Formerly in the Navy, Dean suffers from PTSD, with a strong resentment toward patients with mental illness. His resentment toward mental health issues causes him to neglect patients who don't seem to have valid physical symptoms. If you're looking for the foil to Dr. Charles, you'll find it in Dean. 

Sarah Rafferty as Dr. Pamela Blake

Rafferty plays Dr. Pamela Blake, a transplant surgeon who has a romance with Dr. Crockett Marcel. In the Season 7 finale, Dr. Blake has to undergo a hand surgery and makes Crockett her power of attorney. And he makes a call that may put Blake out of the operating room forever. 

Chicago Med Season 8 returns this fall to NBC. Catch up now on Peacock.
