While season 6 of “Good Doctor” is currently airing, one of the main actors is said to be about to leave the medical series in order to get into politics.
The hospital of St Bonaventure will perhaps have to start looking for a new director. According to information from PuckNewsan American digital media, Hill Harper, who plays Dr. Marcus Andrews in Good Doctor, would have planned to run for the position of Senator for the State of Michigan.
This political race could of course have an impact on the future of the actor in the medical series. The latter should officially announce his candidacy in April. Contacted by TVLine, ABC and Sony declined to comment on the rumors.
Present since the launch of Good Doctor in 2017, Hill Harper is one of the last three regular actors who have haunted the corridors of St Bonaventure’s Hospital since season 1, alongside Freddie Highmore and Richard Schiff, who play Dr Shaun respectively. Murphy and Dr. Aaron Glassman.
Before joining the cast of the medical series, Hill Harper became known to the general public by playing Dr. Sheldon Hawkes in the 9 seasons of CSI: Manhattan.
Currently airing on ABC, Season 6 of Good Doctor remains one of the American channel’s most-watched drama series after The Rookie. A spin-off, entitled The Good Lawyer, is also in preparation.
This series carried by Kennedy McMann (Nancy Drew) will follow a young lawyer suffering from obsessive-compulsive disorder who will use her difference to work on complex cases. For the occasion, she will give the reply to Felicity Huffman, alias Lynette Scavo in Desperate Housewives, who will camp one of the lawyers of the firm.
