Emily Owens, M.D. Interview With the Cast

The Cast of Emily Owens, M.D. on the Difficulty of Playing a Doctor and Never Growing Up

On the CW's new series Emily Owens, M.D., Mamie Gummer plays a first-year doctor who is disappointed to discover that life at the hospital is a lot like her awkward high school years. Necar Zadegan, Aja Naomi King, and Kelly McCreary play Emily's fellow doctors on the show, though in real life, they don't know much about the medical field. During a recent press day in LA, the ladies chatted about the difficulty of learning medical jargon, how they have a newfound respect for doctors, and why Hollywood is just like high school. They also revealed which fictional doctors they'd like to see on the show (hint: George Clooney makes the cut.) Check out the interview before Emily Owens, M.D. premieres on Oct. 16.
