“[T]he door's always open," Daniel says, adding that the set has a "special energy." Whew, that’s a relief! But Gillies will also be saving lives on a new hospital drama premiering June 7 on NBC. As Dr. Joel Goran, Gillies will scrub in on Saving Hope, which he calls “engaging and compelling and funny and brave all at once.”
In order to get into the role of a surgeon, Daniel did his homework, reading books such as Atul Gawande’s Complications: A Surgeon’s Notes on an Imperfect Science. How studious. Not only is he passionate about the show and fitting into the role, he thinks its executive producer, David Wellington, “is going to be the next J.J. Abrams.”
High praise. We’ll definitely tune in to see Mr. Gillies wield a scalpel.
