The Good Actress!

Max Chadburn has finished filming a role on Episode #202 of The Good Doctor – an American medical-drama television series based on the 2013 award-winning South Korean series of the same name. The show is produced by Sony Pictures Television and ABC Studios.
 

Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore), a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome, relocates from a quiet country life to join the prestigious St. Bonaventure hospital’s surgical unit. Alone in the world and unable to personally connect with those around him, his only advocate, Dr. Aaron Glassman (Richard Schiff), challenges the skepticism and prejudices of the hospital’s board and staff when he brings him in to join the team. Shaun will need to work harder than he ever has before, as he navigates his new environment and relationships to prove to his colleagues that his extraordinary medical gifts will save lives.

The freshman drama is the first recurring TV role for 26-year-old leading man Freddie Highmore since he wrapped up work on his Psychoprequel Bates Motel last year.

The Good Doctor ended its first season with Dr. Glassman finding out there is a chance for him to beat his brain tumour, but his and Shaun’s jobs at the hospital are in very serious jeopardy. The feel-good medical drama was an immediate hit for ABC last fall and easily scored a sophomore season to allow viewers to get to know the autistic and brilliant Dr. Shaun Murphy even better. Over the course of the first 18 episodes, fans not only got to see how Shaun became a surgical resident, but how the team at the hospital became a sort of family, if still a dysfunctional one.

“This series has broken records in the competitive television landscape. And is thrilled to announce that Dr. Shaun Murphy will be back for another season.”

The Good Doctor Season 2 premieres Monday, September 24 at 10 PM ET on ABC.

She’s A Real ‘Con’ Artist!! ;-)

Madeleine Arthur has been busy filming a role in an upcoming short “art piece” film entitled Enclosure shooting in Upstate New York.

Director: Rachel Rose
Producer: Animal Kingdom and David Kaplan

This project is set in 18th Century Britain, in an alternate universe in which the invention of paper money has sent society into possibly-revolutionary convulsions.

Storyline:
In the year 1766, the English King consolidates his power by seizing common lands from the people, but accidentally stimulates the economy by introducing a feverish kind of land speculation. While religious disputes tear the country apart, and the most far-sighted citizens seek to flee to the New World, farmers who fear imminent land seizures are preyed on by Road Babies, travelling con artists who try to buy (and re-sell) land one step ahead of the King’s Men, using forged cash to grease their forward path in life.

The film will premiere in 2019 at Luma Arles and then exhibit at the Park Avenue Armory in 2020.

Nora is the daughter of Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough) and appeared several times throughout Season 3 trying to release the demon Mallus. It’s not known yet if Nora will be the main villain in Season 4.
