After stints on 24, HOUSE, NCIS, and FLASHFORWARD, Iranian actress Shohreh Aghdashloo is adding Fox’s news crime/medical show THE MOB DOCTOR to her resume.
She will play Dr. Jayana Baylor:
A legendary cardiothoracic specialist, Dr. Baylor returns from an Oxford sabbatical to Roosevelt Medical Center in order to perform a groundbreaking cardiac autotransplantation. Coming up through a chauvinistic hospital system, Dr. Baylor has learned to walk quietly but carry a big stick. Beautiful and sharp-witted, Baylor is a passionate surgeon who’s allergic to BS. To the novice, this refusal to suffer fools can appear hard-hearted, but to the people who know her, she simply wants to put fairness and her patients first.
She joins the show’s female lead, Jordana Spiro as a young surgeon working to pay off her debt to the Chicago Mob by doing favors for them. Sometimes those favors involve things other than saving people.
