Emily Owens M.D. is the new medical series offered by the CW network this fall. The lead actor, Justin Hartley talked to TV Fanatic where he teased about his new character named Will Collins. The interview also previewed Will’s relationship with actress Mamie Gummer’s lead character, Emily Owens. Here are a few excerpts from the Q&A:
“You have the procedural element, and you also have, like, sort of quote unquote the soapy element,”
“We have the best of both worlds. We have the comedy. We have the drama, intense drama. Heartbreak. Heartache. And then we have comedy, light-hearted comedy, which is great.
Will may not have have feelings for Emily, but that doesn’t mean he won’t develop them.
Going forward, Hartley teases, “… you start to learn why [Emily] likes him so much. Why she sort of is in love with him or whatever. You find out a lot about him.”
In addition to the personal drama happening with the characters, the show focuses on the medical side and the patients.
‘Emily Owens M.D.” airs every Wednesday on the CW.
