Rachel DiPillo stars as Dr. Sarah Reese, a fourth-year medical student, in NBC’s drama “Chicago Med.” Reese is a super proficient overachiever who has never struggled at anything academically, but who may soon find that, for the first time, she’s in over her head.
Born in Michigan and raised throughout Ohio and Tennessee, DiPillo was introduced to the arts at an early age. She spent her summers watching her mom and older sister rehearse for musicals, followed their footsteps into dance, and when she was 12, she auditioned for her first play, “Once on This Island, Jr.” To her surprise, she landed the lead role, and she has been acting ever since.
At 18, DiPillo moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting with the promise to also attend college. Six months after the move, she booked a job in Shreveport, La., to work on ABC’s summer series “The Gates,” and college was put on hold. Since then, DiPillo has worked non-stop, booking recurring roles on notable programs such as “Mad Men,” “Revenge,” and “Jane the Virgin.” Her additional television credits include guest roles on “Bones,” “Law & Order: LA” and “Emily Owens, M.D.”
On the film front, DiPillo has been cast in many independent films, including “Summer of 8,” “Recovery,” and the quirky, independent dramedy “Hello, My Name is Frank.”
While DiPillo’s focus is on acting, she also enjoys singing, organizing, traveling and spending time with her family and friends.
DiPillo currently lives with her sister in the Los Angeles area.
