‘Chicago Med’ Cast Has Lost Some Actors Over Time, Including Colin Donnell

As is the case with many TV shows, sometimes cast members to leave for the roles.

Sometimes, they are moving between other shows. Still, Outsiders, actors like Colin Donnell lose their roles for a “creative decision.”

Donnell played Connor Rhodes during the first four seasons of Chicago Med.

The character was part of the show’s early seasons. But writers just nixed Rhodes altogether.

Well, the actor didn’t appear for the first time on the show in 2015. Rhodes had a lot of passion for his work in the medical field as well as everyone else he worked with.

Ghelfuss Went To Therapy For Help Separating Work, Life Beyond Sets

The list of actors and actresses who have sought professional help is lengthy. Ghelfuss adds his name to the list.

Why did the Chicago Med star go? Ghelfuss needed help separating his time away from work into a different area.

He talked with Starry Mag about it. The actor began going to a therapist when he started feeling second-hand trauma as a result of playing his character.

Gehlfuss said that actors remain in character long after filming ends or never happens.

“Even when the camera is not on you,” Ghelfuss says, “you want to live this scene so that the person that is being filmed for their coverage has a real moment opposite of them to respond to as well.”

An actor will reenact stories, even abusive ones, to get to the core essence of a character. Ghelfuss has learned about the help found through meditation.
