Chicago Med Casts Charles' Daughter — AKA [Spoiler]'s New Love Interest

One of Chicago Med‘s single docs is about to lose his most-eligible status.

Mekia Cox (90210, Undercovers) will recur on Season 2 of the NBC medical drama as Robin, Dr. Charles’ (Oliver Platt) daughter — and a love interest for Colin Donnell’s Dr. Connor Rhodes, TVLine has learned.

Robin is an epidemiologist who is brought in to assess a difficult case, which will further complicate her already strained relationship with her father. She makes her debut in Episode 4, “but the romance [with Connor] doesn’t start” until a later installment, executive producer Andrew Schneider tells TVLine.

“They do start working as colleagues,” EP Diane Frolov adds. “[Robin is] very smart and wry and rebellious. She’s sparky.”

Cox — who can also be seen in the upcoming season of ABC’s Secrets and Lies — had guest arcs on Impastor, Gotham, Key and Peele and Almost Human.

Chicago Med returns Thursday, Sept. 22 at 9/8c on NBC.

    Colin Donnell’s such a babe!

    Very interesting casting – definitely would not have predicted that one. I’m betting that there’s a story there that the show will get around to telling sooner or later.

    And she wasn’t mentioned at all before?

      She was, kind of. He has four (I think) kids that have been mentioned before, just not anything specific about them.
