In the post-ER world of American medical dramas, doctors are making way for nurses – and the two most hotly anticipated new US shows of last year featured very different breeds of nurses as their chief protagonist.
"Thank God I was in my mid-thirties when this all started to happen," Falco told New York Magazine in 2007. Nobody was taking pictures." She is referring to her drinking – her years of "hanging out with very scary and dangerous people and behaving in ways that I was horrified by" – until after one particular night of debauchery, she woke up and realised "Ok, I'm done".She looks more like her Swedish-American mother than her Italian-American father.Nurse Jackie provides another plum role in a show that looks like it might run and run – a second series was commissioned just two days after the first episode aired in the States and in the UK, the first five episodes will be shown over five consecutive nights on BBC2.Jackie has her own family to deal with (including an over-anxious daughter) – even if it is only mildly dysfunctional compared to the Sopranos.Falco herself has two adopted children, four-year-old Anderson (named after her mother, actress Judith M Anderson), and a baby daughter, Macy.
