Yaya DaCosta has had a fabulous 2015 so far.
After making waves as the star of the Whitney Houston Lifetime biopic, and slaying in a photo series paying homage to iconic women, Yaya has now been tapped to join the cast of Chicago Med, the spin-off of the NBC drama, Chicago Fire.
Playing the role of Maggie Seaver, a beautiful nurse who dates Kelly from Chicago Fire, DaCosta will be introduced into the series in episode 19 of the current season of Fire.
Yaya is the first person to be cast for the spinoff for the Chicago Fire/Chicago PD franchise for Universal TV.
Even though Yaya has been werking for years as a model (she was runner up on ANTM, remember?) and actress, we’re excited she’s getting national shine and attention! We’ll definitely be tuning in.
