CONCERNS over the Coronavirus have ABC’s The Good Doctor cast stealing surgical masks from the show’s set.
Star Freddie Highmore revealed the group of pretend medical professionals have been taking so many that they’re running out for actual filming use.
While chatting on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday, the 28-year-old told the talk show host all about how Coronavirus is affecting his show “in a different way” than people might expect.
The actor explained: “They called us all into set the other day and said, ‘We know you’re all really worried about the Coronavirus, but you gotta stop taking the surgical masks from the set because we’re running out..’
“So, if you see in the season finale where they’re in shorts and a t-shirt and sunglasses, because the goggles have gone, you know why.”
Freddie added that the masks likely won’t actually do anyone any good because they’re past their prime.
The Good Doctor star said: “The best thing is the surgical masks have expired. They’re all out of date, the ones that we get in.”
He revealed cast and crew are also “stealing” the antibacterial soap from the set “but it’s a virus so it’s completely useless.”
Along with Freddie, The Good Doctor’s cast includes Antonia Thomas (Dr. Claire Browne), Nicholas Gonzalez (Dr. Neil Melendez), Hill Harper (Dr. Marcus Andrews) and Richard Schiff (Dr. Aaron Glassman).
Christina Chang (Dr. Audrey Lim), Fiona Gubelmann (Dr. Morgan Reznick), Will Yun Lee (Dr. Alex Park), Paige Spara (Lea Dilallo) and Jasika Nicole (Dr. Carly Lever) also star on the ABC drama.
New season 4 episodes of The Good Doctor air on ABC on Mondays at 10 p.m.
