Chicago Med Admits GH's Julie Berman

General Hospital vet Julie Berman is transferring to Chicago Med.

The three-time Emmy-winning actress is joining NBC’s latest Chicago Fire spinoff in a recurring role, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Unlike on GH, Berman will actually be playing a doctor on Med — and a skilled one at that. Her character, Toni Zanetti, is a brilliant, self-assured attending surgeon who does not suffer fools. Sexy in scrubs and high heels, she confidently turns heads wherever she goes.

Berman’s Dr. Zanetti first appears in Episode 3.

Since wrapping up her eight-year GH run as Lulu Spencer in 2013, Berman has guest-starred on Jane the Virgin and Two and a Half Men. She can currently be seen in the new Hulu comedy series Casual.

Chicago Med premieres Nov. 17 at 9/8c.

    Congratulations To Julie! Having followed her career from her first scenes on General Hospital, I knew she was special in terms of talent and presence. She is truly missed at GH. A particular joy is that, having met her in person, she is as kind and lovely one-on-one as she appears on screen. I am so very proud and happy for this wonderful actor!

    based purely on looks, a pairing between Julie’s character and Colin Donnell’s would look good.

    I’m happy for Julie Marie Berman.As for Chicago Med, i’m wondering if they want to make recurring to see how she does before making her a regular.

    Julie is a great addition to Chicago Med. She is smoking gorgeous and extremely talented. Ran into her at Harry Caray’s and she was really cool and down to earth. Kudos to her for taking a risk by leaving GH to expand her exceptional talent. I will be setting my DVR to catch our newest Chicagoan JMB!

    Glad to see “Lulu” in a very good leading role. The “rockstar” young head physician really came thru in her portrayal. She looks and strong-willed and beautiful. Not like an overly gaunt actress. Kudos to whoever hired her. Looking forward to her persona go thru changes on the show; will be watchin. . . .
