Sea­son 1 M-Net 19:30 Episode 7 Dr Charles has an un­usual di­ag­no­sis for April’s oddly be­hav­ing home­less pa­tient.

Dr Natalie Man­ning (played by Tor­rey DeVitto) in med­i­cal drama Chicago Med (2015-cur­rent) is a doc­tor who goes the ex­tra mile for her pa­tients. And like her char­ac­ter, 31-year-old Tor­rey also has com­pas­sion for those who suf­fer and that’s why she’s pas­sion­ate about hu­man­i­tar­ian causes.

1 Tor­rey was born to Lib­erty and Mary DeVitto in Hunt­ing­ton, New York in 1984. Lib­erty’s played drums for singer-song­writer Billy Joel for ages. Tor­rey was named af­ter her mother’s maiden name and she has two sis­ters Devon and Maryelle, who’re also in the en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try.

2 Af­ter grad­u­at­ing from Win­ter Park High in Florida 2002, Tor­rey went to Ja­pan to work as a fash­ion model.

3 Her dad’s mu­si­cal tal­ents rubbed off on her and she took vi­olin lessons from the age of six. Tor­rey ac­tu­ally played the vi­olin on Raphael Saadiq’s 2004 al­bum Ray Ray, as well as Ste­vie Nick’s 2011 al­bum In Your Dreams.

4 Af­ter a cou­ple of mi­nor roles in shows in­clud­ing Daw­son’s Creek (1998-2003) in 2003 and One Tree Hill (2003-2012) in 2008, Tor­rey was cast as Melissa Hast­ings in the drama Pretty Lit­tle Liars (2010-cur­rent), where she still has a re­cur­ring role.

5 She mar­ried Paul Wes­ley (Stefan in The Vampire Di­aries, 2009-cur­rent) in 2011 and from 2012 to 2013 worked with him as Dr Mered­ith Fell in The Vampire Di­aries. They split in late 2013. 6 In 2013, Tor­rey adopted a Chi­huahua mix breed dog from The Shel­ter Pet Pro­ject and named it Beau. She adds that he’s been the love of her life ever since. “My sis­ter and I like to call him ‘mushy mush’ be­cause he’s just like a pile of lov­ing mush that melts in your arms,” she gushes.
