Ryan Eggold for 4 years he plays the role of doctor Max Goodwin in the series New Amsterdam Hospital. During this time, many viewers got used to the fact that the actor wears a white coat. In an interview with Pani magazine, Eggold was asked if he ever played like Hugh Laurey Doctor Househe is mistaken for a real doctor and do people come to him for medical advice.
Fortunately, not yet, but something feels that it is inevitable. On the other hand, Max is a person who tries to heal the American health system. He doesn’t deal directly with the problems of individual patients, so maybe it won’t be so bad. There are of course times when people refer to me as “Doctor” but that’s because we shoot in real hospitals a lot. We’re dressed like real doctors, so it’s only natural that patients sometimes confuse us. Not everyone watches our show to immediately see that they are talking to an actor. But fortunately, no one has dragged me to the operating block yet (laughs).
By the way, I wonder if people brought their children to George Clooney asking for a diagnosis just because he played a pediatrician for several years in ER.
