Who Plays Nurse Monique Lawson In Chicago Med?

The third installment of the "One Chicago" franchise, "Chicago Med," was created by Dick Wolf and Matt Olmstead. The NBC drama follows the doctors and nurses of the emergency department at Gaffney Chicago Medical Center as they help various patients, as well as deal with their own personal lives. "Chicago Med" is very much an ensemble cast, with some of the major characters including ED supervising attending physician, Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss), the chief of emergency medicine, Dr. Ethan Choi (Brian Tee), the head of patient and medical services, Sharon Goodwin (S. Epatha Merkerson), and the chief of psychiatry, Dr. Daniel Charles (Oliver Platt).

Along with the main cast members, "Chicago Med" features plenty of minor and supporting roles filled by guest actors. One of these roles is Monique Lawson, an emergency department nurse who comes into the mix in Season 2 when she is being trained by nurses Maggie (Marlyne Barrett) and Doris (Lorena Diaz). In "Chicago Med" Season 4, Episode 10, "All the Lonely People," Monique has a harrowing experience when she is involved in a shooting outside of the hospital but is luckily unharmed. The shooter turns out to be a former patient who is angry that Monique rejected his advances toward her. The character of Monique is last seen in Season 5, Episode 6, "It's All in the Family."

While "Chicago Med" fans know the character, who is Casey Tutton, the actor who plays Monique, and what else has she been in?

Casey Tutton has been acting since 2007

Casey Tutton got her start as an actor in 2007 when she appeared in a video short titled "The Swing," before making her film debut a year later with "The Poker House," in which she appears opposite a young Jennifer Lawrence and Chloë Grace Moretz. From there, she moved on to films such as 2009's "Hannah Free," 2011's "The Key Man" and 2014's "Bad Johnson."

Also in 2014, Tutton had her first "One Chicago" role — and surprisingly, it was not playing nurse Monique Lawson. Before taking on the role of Monique, Tutton played a character named Collette in a Season 2 episode of "Chicago P.D." Additionally, after beginning her arc as Monique, Tutton appeared in one crossover episode of "Chicago Fire" in 2018. "Chicago Med" is easily Tutton's most prominent role thus far, with the actor appearing in 43 total episodes (via IMDb).

Tutton's last appearance in "Chicago Med" was in 2019, which is the same year that she began a recurring arc in the legal drama "Proven Innocent," which stars "Frasier" star Kelsey Grammer and "Twilight" actor Rachelle Lefevre. Tutton plays Rosemary, the murdered woman at the center of the show's narrative. Unfortunately, "Proven Innocent" only lasted one season before being canceled (via Variety).

Most recently, Tutton has appeared in one episode of Netflix's "Selena: The Series" in 2020, and next up, the actor will be in an upcoming film titled "The Hard Way," which is written and directed by Lizzie Gordon.
