Charlie Harris

Hope Zion's charismatic Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Charlie Harris, is awake and back working in the O.R. where he belongs. Only problem is -- he's still seeing spirits. His coma has left a kind of connection open between this world and the next -- and it's a secret Charlie has to keep. He can't explain his ability to make uncanny diagnoses or why he often seems to be talking to himself.

Season Two will beg the question -- can Charlie free himself of his connection to the spirit world?  Moreover, does he even want to? He could lose his license, and never operate again. His power is a mixed blessing – it gives Charlie a rare insight into patients and a new perspective on what it means to heal someone. But it also isolates him from everyone else – especially, his fiancĂ©e, Dr. Alex Reid . The stakes of the spirit world are higher in Season Two as Charlie's spirits threaten to destroy his relationship, his career, and even his life.
