Premieres September 25, 2018, on NBC, New Amsterdam is a medical drama television series based on the book by Erich Mannheimer Twelve Patients: Life and Death at Bellevue Hospital. The series stars Ryan Eggold, Freema Agyeman, Janet Montgomery, Jocko Sims, Anupam Kher, Tyler Labine, and Sandra May Frank. New Amsterdam It follows Dr. Max Goodwin, the new medical director at one of the oldest public hospitals in the United States. His goal is to fix and heal the facility by breaking the rules and destroying its bureaucracy, thus providing exceptional patient care.
While the main plot of the show is medical drama – patients who get sick, undergo surgery, barely make it, some miraculous recovery, and of course, the loss of a patient – the characters are what make any show good (or bad). There are many things that can make a character likable: their traits, how they grow through trials and tribulations, and how they treat others. New Amsterdam It shines with its beautiful and flawed characters as they face the hardships and joys of their lives and work inside the hospital. So here are the best ranked characters in the series.
10 Evie Garrison
Evie Garrison He was introduced to Floyd by Bloom as a romantic interest. She is played by Margot Bingham, who is the Associate Director of the Legal Department in seasons 1 through 3. Little is known about her outside of her relationship with Floyd, but she is smart, loving, and considered a good partner to Floyd. However, besides that, she has no personal relationship with viewers, which puts her very low on the list.
9 Georgia Goodwin
Plays by Lisa O’Hare Georgia GoodwinDr. Max Goodwin’s wife. She appeared in season one through two as a recurring character before dying under tragic circumstances. She acted as Max’s supportive and loving partner, though their relationship was initially rocky when first introduced. However, as the first season progressed, he became stronger, and she was there for him when he needed her.
8 Casey Acosta
As the ER chief nurse, you would expect this character to be more developed and fleshed out. Unfortunately, viewers don’t know much about it Casey Acosta Besides having a mild temper and being a fun and kind personality. He is always there for Bloom, planning her birthday surprise with her mom and even fixing mistakes Bloom made during the first season. Casey is played by Alejandro Hernandez.
7 Cassian Shin
Played by Daniel Dae Kim, Cassian Shin He is the trauma surgeon in Seasons 2 and 3 New Amsterdam. When he first appears, Cassian is a selfish character who cares more about his own schedule than the needs of the hospital. However, viewers will learn that he really is an intellectual, charming, and caring character who believes (and proves) that self-care is essential to the job. He was romantically involved with Helen Sharp, but when Helen ended the relationship to focus on raising her niece, Cassian disappeared from the series.
6 Iggy Froni
Iggy Froni He works as a chief psychiatrist in New Amsterdam. Played by Tyler Labine, Iggy has a big heart and an understanding nature. Viewers can relate to him very well, as his struggles are their struggles and his triumphs are their triumphs. He believes no one is broken and through Labine’s portrayal, viewers know they can be heard if they find someone like Iggy to talk to. However, Eiji is not perfect. It’s flawed – and that’s okay. He makes mistakes sometimes and after a difficult childhood, he is set on a journey to love himself and find the light even in the darkest of times.
5 Floyd Reynolds
Jocko Sims plays one of the New AmsterdamThe main characters: Dr. Floyd ReynoldsHead of the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery. He is one of the best in his field, with a strong work ethic and will. However, his pride and extreme judgment of his colleagues cause tension and make him difficult to deal with. As the series progresses, his mistakes and interactions cause him to grow and reveal things within him. At the end of the second season, Floyd left the series, but returned in the third season to assist in Vijay’s heart surgery and remained as a main character.
4 Lauren Blum
The head of the emergency department, Dr. Lauren BlumPlayed by Janet Montgomery. She went through a lot of struggles during the first two seasons, trying to navigate her relationship with her mother while she was stressed and dependent on Adderall. During the first season, she was involved in an ambulance accident and needed physical therapy. She tries to find a way to deal with her pain without the use of medication. Lauren is a very resilient, very relatable character who isn’t afraid to do what needs to be done.
3 Vijay Kapoor
Played by Anupam Kher, Vijay Kapoor He is the former chief of neurology during seasons 1 through 3. When he left the series, I felt like there was a hole left behind. He had a strong bond with Iggy that felt like father and son. They obviously worked together a lot of times because one was psychology and the other was neuroscience. But they also helped each other in life’s troubles and shared many heartfelt conversations. Vijay always tried to understand people and would talk to them for as long as necessary to find out the problem.
2 Max Goodwin
doctor. Maximus “Max” Goodwin He is the new Medical Director at the start of the first season at New Amsterdam Medical Center. Portrayed by Ryan Eggold, Max is the one who changed the medical center into what it is now. He has an open heart and a genuine desire to reform the system. When the first meeting took place at the hospital—where half the staff had been fired—many were thinking, “Just who is this guy?” The answer to that question quickly became clear when his infectious helpful attitude and goodwill encouraged open conversations and truly changed how the hospital was run. The show kicked off with his entrance and fans have been in love with him ever since.
1 Helen Sharp
The greatest character in New Amsterdam It must be badass Helen Sharp. She assists Max in the general chaos of the hospital work environment and is willing to do whatever it takes to keep her friends safe and healthy, even to the point of endangering her friendship with Lauren for the sake of her own health and well-being. She is played by Freema Agyeman, who is the Chief of Oncology and starred as part of the main cast during seasons 1 through 4. During the fifth and final season, she was a guest star. She was a guest star due to her role being reduced at the hospital, so that she could care for her niece after her half-brother’s death, another bold example of the sacrifices she makes throughout the series for the one she loves.
