Aghdashloo will play a recurring character named Dr Jayana Baylor, a legendary cardiothoracic specialist who returns from her Oxford sabbatical to perform a groundbreaking cardiac autotransplantation, reports Entertainment Weekly.

Baylor is described as a passionate, beautiful and sharp-witted surgeon who is "allergic to BS".
