Revenge's Emily VanCamp Finally Found Her Next Big TV Role

Emily VanCamp made an impression on audiences everywhere thanks to her role on ABC's Revenge, which came to an end after four seasons back in 2015. Now, the actress is headed back to TV for her first regular role since the conclusion of Revenge. VanCamp is moving to Fox to play the female lead in a new drama pilot from Antoine Fuqua, called The Resident.

The Resident will center on a young doctor whose ideals put him in a unique place in the hospital system. He kicks off his career under the sharp eye of a senior resident who uses his experience to reveal the very best and very worst of the medical field nowadays. THR reports that Emily VanCamp will play a nurse named Nicolette.

The cast is rounded out by Manish Dayal, Matt Czuchry, Shaunette Renee Wilson, and Bruce Greenwood in addition to Emily VanCamp. Antoine Fuqua is attached as an executive producer on the pilot, which has been written by Amy Holden Jones of Black Box, and Hayley Schore and Roshan Seth of Code Black. Phillip Noyce - who helmed two episodes of Revenge back in Season 1 - is signed on to direct.

Emily VanCamp is best known on the TV circuit nowadays for her work on Revenge, but she made her big break as a leading lady in an ongoing series on the small screen in the WB series Everwood from 2002-2006. She also had a key role on Brothers & Sisters for the first four seasons, and she still appeared as a guest star in the fifth and final season. She's a veteran of small screen drama, and we can bet that she can tackle whatever The Resident throws her way.

Of course, blockbuster movie fans might recognize Emily VanCamp from somewhere other than Revenge, Brothers & Sisters, or Everwood. VanCamp memorably appeared as Sharon Carter in both Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War. Sharon is still very much alive in the Marvel Cinematic Universe; if The Resident is ordered to series, we may see her back on the big screen as well as on the small screen.

Fox has not yet announced when The Resident will go into production. We'll have to wait and see.
