It may have been 11 months since she last stepped into Hope Zion Hospital, but newly minted mom Dr. Alex Reid is anything but rusty, rolling in for her first shift post-maternity leave with an ambulance call she met en route. But as Alex continues to balance her roles as a mother and world-class surgeon, she’ll have to confront questions in her own family life when it becomes all too clear that being tied to Dr. Charlie Harris’ (Michael Shanks) supernatural gift has its own particular set of risks and rewards.
Erica Durance is a producer and lead actress on CTV’s hit medical drama SAVING HOPE, playing the role of Dr. Alex Reid, for which she garnered a Canadian Screen Award nomination in 2013. Many fans know her as Lois Lane from SMALLVILLE, which she starred as for seven years on the series.
Her many notable guest appearances include Wonder Woman on HARRY’S LAW with Kathy Bates, and Samantha Masters in the CHARLIE’S ANGELS remake. Her more recent film credits include her tour de force performance as twin sisters in the Italian film Gemelle.
