Annabella Sciorra plays Dr Romy Morales in New Amsterdam. Photos of the new episode Disconnected were released earlier this week.

As she is not a series regular, the actor surprised fans by showing up as a guest star in the new episode this week. She shared a scene with Christine Chang’s Dr Agnes Kao.

The show follows Dr Max Goodwin after he becomes the medical director of one of the oldest hospitals in the United States. His aim is to rejuvenate the hospital and provide exceptional patient care.

Fans were extremely excited to see one of their favourite actors on the show.

While this guest spot was only a small scene, we hope that Annabella Sciorra returns to the series and joins the New Amsterdam cast as a more permanent member.
