Ryan Eggold reveals he had COVID-19
September 21st, 2020 under Coronavirus, Ryan Eggold. [ Comments: none ]

Ryan Eggold might play a doctor on New Amsterdam. However, in real life, he recently became a patient when he tested positive for coronavirus. The actor explained why he decided to come forward about his diagnosis now.

What better way to celebrate 400K on IG than to share with you my friends that I had #COVID19 and am okay thankfully and recently went to @mountsinainyc to donate plasma! My experience of the virus was something similar to the flu, I never had trouble breathing fortunately, but I know many others have had different, more severe experiences and my heart goes out to those who have. I think in this crazy time it’s important to figure out what concrete steps we can take to help get everyone through this. Let’s be smart not afraid. Mt. Sinai and many other hospitals are doing this amazing thing which you can read more about in the LINK IN BIO. They’re collecting plasma from folks like me who’ve had it and recovered in an effort to distill the antibodies into a more concentrated form to help treat other folks and protect our much needed frontline workers. It’s called #HyperimmuneGlobulin So if you’ve recovered from Covid I highly recommend donating your plasma. Took about an hour and was relatively painless. I don’t believe in any politician as much as I believe in people and our ability to help each other when times are tough. I’m excited for the day when we can get back to human connection, people working to feed their families and pay their rent, kids back in school… not to mention all those beautiful things that make life extraordinary like a good meal out with friends, live music, theatre, sports… all that fun stuff. And we will. With the help of amazing folks like the health care workers at Mt Sinai. I had hoped to include a few pictures of the staff who helped me but Dr. Choo bravely declined any Instagram glory 🙂 But THANK YOU Dr. Choo, Crystal, Katherine, Merle and all the amazing folks at Mt. Sinai working tirelessly to help us all get through this. Let’s get back to caring about other important things as much as we care about coronavirus. If you’re on the other side of this and you feel up to it, go donate! 🙂 Stay safe, stay smart, stay connected. And thanks 400K I’m honored to be a part of your community. Thanks for having me 💛

If you had COVID-19, then please donate covalescent plasma. You might be able to save a life. What better gift than that?

Eggold is the second actor from the NBC medical drama to test postive for it. Daniel Dae Kim tested positive early on in the pandemic.


Ryan Eggold looking sexy. That’s all.

We are months away from New Amsterdam gracing our televisions again. However, that does not mean we have to go without seeing Ryan Eggold and his expressive face until then.

The sexiest television doctor shared a photo of himself waiting to catch a train, and all I can say is, “toot, toot.” Who knew someone could look that good waiting for a train? I met my prom date on one, and even he didn’t look that fine.

Now, I really want New Amsterdam back. Since we are not getting it for the foreseeable future (damn you, COVID-19), NBC is giving us the medical drama Transplant, which was transplanted from Canada, on September 1st to hold us over. It is not NA, nothing is, but it is pretty close.


New Amsterdam pulls its epidemic episode with Daniel Dae Kim

New Amsterdam is based on NY’s Bellvue Hospital, a real-life hospital that is going through hell right now during the Coronavirus.

The show was expected to fictionalize an episode with their hospital being hit by a flu epidemic, and Daniel Dae Kim, who tested positive for COVID-19, plays a patient on it. He is not the only member of the show’s family to test positive. In light of everything going on, it will not be one of the remaining episodes that airs this season.

New Amsterdam creator, executive producer, and showrunner Schulner explained the decision to Deadline, “The world needs a lot less fiction right now, and a lot more facts.

“We showed what happens when our hospital has to erect tents in the parking lot because every bed is taken.” Something NYC is actually seeing on their streets today.

New Amsterdam will air repeats at 9p for the next two weeks and then the season finale will air on April 14th at that time. The epidemic episode is expected to air at a different date.


BTWF: Ryan Eggold on Out of Jimmy’s Head
October 8th, 2019 under Before They Were Famous, Ryan Eggold. [ Comments: none ]

(starts at 12:12 in)

Before Ryan Eggold was clean-shaven on New Amsterdam, he was a hairy werewolf on Out of Jimmy’s Head. It is hard to recognize the 23-year-old in that 2007 episode.

Yesterday when he was on Late Night, he talked about this role. He told Seth Meyers that after spending four years getting a degree in theater and doing this part, he wondered, “Is this the life I signed up for? This is a disaster. This is a horrible choice.” However, it all paid off in the end. Without this role, he might never have done 90210. Which circles us back.


Did this New Amsterdam first look reveal who will survive?
September 6th, 2019 under Ryan Eggold. [ Comments: none ]

When New Amsterdam ended its first most excellent season, three of the characters’ lives were left in peril. We will not know who will survive and who will not until the season premiere on September 24th. Or will we know now?

In the season finale, Max (Ryan Eggold) was rushing his wife (Lisa O’Hare) and their newborn child to the hospital in an ambulance along with Dr. Bloom (Janet Montgomery) and Dr. Sharpe (Freema Agyeman). Just as they were almost there, they were hit by another ambulance. Max was seen holding his baby as he walked next to his injured wife who was being rolled in on a gurney. We did not know the fate of her and the other two doctors. All we knew is that Max was OK.

After patiently waiting months to find out what happens next, NBC is giving us the first look at season 2. They already told us someone will die, but of course, they will not tell us who. Although this promo seems to give us some hints.

Eggold says that we will get the answers within the first minutes of its return. Not only that, the show will jump back and forth between a few months later and the day of the accident.

Is it his wife who almost died during delivery? Is it, Dr. Bloom who just came back from rehab for pill addiction and wants to quit medicine? Or Dr. Sharpe for no reason at all.

We get just glimpses of what is going to happen, but not enough to tell a story. However, there is one frame that makes me think we might know who dies. That frame is Max looking uninjured holding his baby, which makes me think it is his wife who dies. Unless that was just a dream sequence and the father, who is battling cancer, wonders what life will be like when he is healthy?

Am I right? We will find out in 18 days when last season’s best new show returns with all-new episodes.

On a serious note, how did Ryan Eggold’s face not get an Emmy nom? It needs its own category.
