To celebrate the release of The Resident on Disney+’s new platform Star, we sat down with the star of the drama to find out about the new series and how the pandemic has changed everything.

THE RESIDENT is a powerful new medical show focusing on a young doctor’s final years of training that rips back the curtain to reveal the truth of what really happens, both good and bad, in hospitals across the country. Dayal plays Dr. Devon Pravesh and tells us about why he wanted to play the character initially, the challenges of television and playing a character for some many years, the huge fanbase and how the series is reflecting COVID-19.

The series also stars Matt Czuchry (The Good Wife), Emily VanCamp (The Falcon and The Winter Soldier), Moran Atias (24: Legacy), Merrin Dungey (Big Little Lies), Shaunette Renée Wilson (Billions), Melina Kanakaredes (CSI: NY, Providence) and Bruce Greenwood (The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, Mad Men).
