A list of the main cast and characters on the A&E TV miniseries Coma.
Lauren Ambrose as Susan Wheeler
Susan is a smart, beautiful and compassionate medical student working as a trainee at Peach Tree Memorial. Her skills and legacy (her grandfather performed the first open-heart surgery in Atlanta) incite envy among her peers, but position her favorably among the more senior doctors. Shortly after joining the surgical rotation, Susan becomes perplexed by the unexplained comas of several patients. Sensing that something is amiss, Susan decides to investigate the mystery behind these unlikely occurrences.
Steven Pasquale as Dr. Mark Bellows
Mark is a handsome surgical resident at Peach Tree Memorial and Susan’s supervisor. Whether impressing fellow doctors in the operating room or seducing co-workers after hours, Dr. Bellows is your typical “Alpha Male” surgeon. That is, however, until he starts falling for Susan and, like her, begins to question the hospital’s practices with coma patients.
Geena Davis as Dr. Agnetta Lindquist
Dr. Lindquist is the icy and attractive Head of Psychiatry at Peach Tree Memorial. As a member of the ethics committee, Dr. Lindquist will let nothing stop her from getting what she wants, whether in the bedroom or the boardroom.
James Woods as Dr. Theodore Stark
The iconoclastic but feared Chief of Staff, Dr. Stark is the most respected surgeon in the hospital. He’s the face of medicine’s present and future and takes a particular interest in protecting Susan, as his mentor was her esteemed late grandfather.
Richard Dreyfuss as Professor Hillside
A professor at Atlanta University and friend and colleague of Susan’s late grandfather, Professor Hillside is a deeply committed educator and innovator. He feels a responsibility to Susan because he sees in her the same spark and intelligence he so admired in her grandfather.
Ellen Burstyn as Mrs. Emerson
Mrs. Emerson runs the day-to-day affairs at the Jefferson Institute with an iron fist. As the woman in charge of the preeminent facility in coma patient care, Mrs. Emerson will not let anything compromise the patients’ progress. However, this obsession to follow a very strict mandate is more than it seems.
