Caitlin McGee is an American actress who is best known for her appearances in the television series “L.A. Law,” as well as “NYPD Blue,” and “The West Wing.” She’s made headlines recently in a new upcoming drama series titled “Bluff City” opposite the legendary Jimmy Smits. She will play the role of his estranged daughter who goes back to work for her father’s firm, although the two have a long history of knocking heads. It’s slated to be one of the best new drama’s of the season, so here are 10 things that you didn’t know about Caitlin McGee that might let you know what to expect from her in the new role.
1. This is her first headliner
Caitlin has made appearances in other crime and drama related television series, but this is her first co-starring role. Nevermind the fact that she’s thrown into the role opposite Jimmy Smits. It has all the appearances of being a breakout role for her. If you like high powered lawyers who seem to always have a drama going on amongst themselves then this is likely to be a show that you can get interested in. We’re looking forward to seeing Caitlin take on a major role.
2. She’s nothing like the character in real-life
Caitlin shared that her character is a long way from sharing the same personality traits, but the things that tie the two together are the moral compass as well as the heart. These are aspects of the character that she can tap into to get into the role of the character and make her believable. Her new character is headstrong and very much an alpha personality who likes to take charge and be in control. McGee is a bit more laid back than that.
3. McGee had a recurring role in “Grey’s Anatomy.”
Although this is her first headliner, Caitlin did land a good gig on “Grey’s Anatomy.” She was cast in the role of a pregnant woman who faced multiple issues with the health of her child. She appeared on the series in a recurring role that lasted for a full 14 episodes. This is longevity for a character on a series who isn’t considered a part of the main cast and it gave her some good exposure.
