Audrey Lim is San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital’s chief of surgery. She replaced Dr. Jackson Han. Although Audrey is known for being The Good Doctor’s chief surgeon, she’s also known for dating Dr. Neil Melendez (Nicholas Gonzalez). Fans of the show were rooting for her and Melendez, coming up with the couple name “Limlendez.” Unfortunately, they broke up and Limlendez was no more. What’s even more unfortunate is Melendez died during the season 3 finale, so there’s no chance of them ever getting back together (at least in this life).

While Melendez is on his death bed, he expresses regret about the way he and Lim broke up. At one point he says he could have spent a lifetime drinking whiskey with her. “What did we do?” asks Audrey. It was too late for that, but it was heartwarming to see them on good terms.

Christina Chang on the benefits of playing Audrey Lim on ‘The Good Doctor’

Chang tells MEA Worldwide she has experienced personal growth from playing Audrey Lim on The Good Doctor. The actor says playing Audrey has shown her how to become more vulnerable. She describes her time on the show as “a fun ride.” Here’s what Chang had to say about the experience:

Audrey has grown remarkably in these three years! From a fearless trauma surgeon who kept her love life to one-night stands to being a woman who opened herself to love and then becoming the chief surgeon, it is an incredible growth curve. It’s been such a fun ride for me to play Audrey, and yes, I too have grown alongside her. As I became comfortable in her skin, it was easier for me to access her different levels of vulnerability.
