Dr. Crockett Marcel on ‘Chicago Med’
Crockett Marcel was first introduced on Chicago Med back in 2019. His first episode was titled “Never Going Back to Normal” (Chicago Med Season 5, Episode 1). As of this writing, Crockett is dating Dr. Natalie Manning (Torrey DeVitto). At first, they engaged in playful flirting. However, that flirtation grew into something more. The couple recently said they loved for each other. It’s a big step for both of them.
One thing that brought Crockett and Natalie together was their shared personal tragedies. He lost his daughter to leukemia a few years ago and Natalie lost her husband while he was on military duty. Crockett was guarded about his personal life at first, but over time he began to trust Natalie with his heart.
Who plays Dr. Crockett Marcel on ‘Chicago Med’?
Dr. Crockett Marcel is played by Dominic Rains. One of his early acting roles was in the 2003 movie Saving Jessica Lynch, in which he played an officer. The following year, Rains landed a recurring role in the television series LAX. He played Cyrus for five episodes.
In 2007, Rains joined the cast of General Hospital: Night Shift. He played Dr. Leo Julian for 13 episodes. He also played Dr. Julian on the daytime version of the drama from 2007 to 2008. His brother, Ethan, took over the role in General Hospital: Night Shift Season 2 when he was unable to return to the series.
Rains made his film debut in the 2007 movie Poet’s War. The following year, he appeared in the movie Countering Extremism. Rains has also appeared in Flashforward, Outbreak, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Dominic Rains’ work outside of acting
Rains has entertainment credits outside of acting. As of this writing, he has two credits as a producer. His first production credit was for a 2014 short film titled Irreconcilable. That year, he also produced a short film titled Still Here.
What’s next for Dr. Crockett Marcel
Crockett and Natalie will continue to grow closer. During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, co-showrunner Andy Schneider says the couple will strengthen their relationship and move forward. One thing that seems to be helping things along is that Natalie’s mother is slowly warming up to him. At first, she wasn’t a fan because she was rooting for Natalie and Will (Nick Gehlfuss), but she sees that her daughter is happy.
“Both of them are a little gun-shy about a new relationship,” says Schneider. “He’s always been protecting himself from being vulnerable by avoiding deep relationships since his divorce. Natalie has had a couple of very unsuccessful relationships that we’ve seen over the last few years. She, too, will have this tendency to want to protect her heart. But their relationship will deepen.”
