Real-life patient appears on ‘New Amsterdam’


An actual cystic fibrosis patient is playing the part a cystic fibrosis patient on NBC’s “New Amsterdam” Tuesday. 

Lilly Knowles has lived her whole life inhaling medications to deal with thick, sticky mucus that can clog her lungs and obstruct the pancreas.

Despite having no television acting experience, Lilly was selected in a crowded casting call to appear on NBC’s new medical drama. 

You can watch her performance on “New Amsterdam” tonight at 9 p.m., right after “The Village.”
