It has been 12 years since Yaya DaCosta gained recognition as a runner up on “America’s Next Top Model.” Since then she has appeared in TV shows and movies, such as “Take the Lead” and starred in a Lifetime channel biopic where she played the late singer Whitney Houston.
Currently, DaCosta plays nurse April Sexton, on “Chicago Med.” DaCosta calls her character a “complex person” who also knows how to have a bit of fun. “She is so serious about her work but so young and has so much integrity, but also has fun,” DaCosta told IBT. “She’s a really dynamic woman. It’s not often that we get to play dynamic characters so I just love her. I learn more about her the more the writers write about her.”
