Who is Dr Powell in The Good Doctor?

Good Doctor

Shaun Murphy is a high-class surgeon who is autistic and struggles with savant syndrome. He leaves his hometown from a quiet country life to join a prestigious hospital surgical unit. A person who works to connect with their patients may cause the death of patients, as being a surgeon is about building a relationship of trust. But in Shaun’s case, he is gifted with genius-level medicine and understands things even machines can’t detect. This defective person challenges everyone sceptical of him and teaches that flaws are no restrictions.

It was revealed in April that the 38-year-old Savannah Welch from Titans fame is to join  The Good Doctor cast for Season 6. 13 Reasons Why star Savanna is to play the role of a fellow new intern on ABC’s medical drama. 

Savannah’s character is Dr Danica Powell, an Annapolis graduate who went to medical school during her time in the Navy. She is popularly characterized on many platforms as “ethical to a fault”, and well-spoken and unafraid to stand up against authority.

During her time in the Navy, she had a mission which got her into a flight deck accident, leaving her in a coma for many days. She lost one of her legs, but this did not tarnish her resilience to become a doctor and treat patients. Powell is not just a random passerby, but she is the type who leaves a strong impression and stays for a long time.
