Chicago Med cast members keep leaving the show, but a new face is ready to be featured during Season 8.

Actor Ivan Shaw is going to get a lot of screen time in the next episode as Dr. Justin Lieu is helping with an important medical case.

According to the new Chicago Med episode synopsis, Dr. Lieu is going to get to work with the latest Med celebrity.

Dr. Will Halstead, Dr. Crockett Marcel, and Dr. Lieu will try to facilitate a trans-organ exchange on the November 16 episode of Chicago Med.

This will be a big deal for the hospital, but also for Lieu if he can do a good job while working with Will and Crockett.

With the shocking exit of Dr. Vanessa Taylor, the door has opened for some new people to shine.

Who plays Dr. Justin Lieu on the Chicago Med cast?

Actor Ivan Shaw will already appear on the Chicago Med episode called Everyone’s Fighting a Battle You Know Nothing About, and he will be a featured character on the big night.

Before coming to Chicago Med, he was featured as Marco De La Rosa on The Cleaning Lady, and he has also appeared on an episode each of NCIS (Whiskey Tango Foxtrot), Silicon Valley (Ad Exec), and New Girl (Cece’s Boys) over the years.  

In the photo below that comes from Chicago Med Season 8, Episode 8, we see Shaw sharing the screen with S. Epatha Merkerson (she plays Sharon Goodwin) and Nick Gehlfuss (as Will Halstead).
