Recently there has been the launch of a new medical drama New Amsterdam, streamed from February 1 on Netflix. Let’s binge into some of the details of one of the series’s prominent characters, Alejandro Hernandez, who portrays male nurse Casey Acosta on the NBC original drama. Hernandez, one of the few members of the cast who have only recently begun acting, received his first role in a Gotham episode back in 2014. Later, he landed small parts in popular series like Chicago P.D., Elementary, Sneaky Pete, Blue Bloods, Madam Secretary, and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. But Hernandez’s portrayal of Casey is his first recurring role on a show, and it merits more screen time. Hernandez is also a writer; in 2018, he wrote The Spectacular Tito Garcia, a short play for the stage.
As of February 2023, the Casey Acosta actor will be 37 years old. Although it is currently unknown what day he was born. He was stated to have been born in Havana, Cuba. He not only acts but also writes and produces, according to IMDb. According to Super Star Bio, the New Amsterdam actor is 5 and 11 inches tall. If you want to follow the actor and self-described “occasional poet” on Instagram, you can search for him there using the handle “@alejandro.r.hernandez”.
The tattooed nurse, who served as Lauren’s backup and appeared to be her best friend, won the public’s hearts. The two knew exactly what the other needed at all times because they trusted one another and were such a significant drain. Casey, a qualified nurse also laid off in a large group, probably surprised the fans the most. He was a crucial component of each episode and an excellent example of a character who defied stereotypes as a cunning Latino man passionate about his nursing career.
