Chicago Med’s Torrey DeVitto is starring in the Hallmark Christmas movie T’was the Night Before Christmas with Zane Holtz, Amanda Barker, and Tanisha Thammavongsa.

In T’was the Night Before Christmas, DeVitto plays an actress who is attempting to broaden her career by directing, in order to move past the character and catchphrase she is known for. She takes the opportunity to prove herself with a play/mock trial with two lawyers debating whether A Visit from Saint Nick was authored by Clement Clark Moore or Henry Livingston Jr. and has the audience decide as the jury.

DeVitto played Dr. Natalie Manning, an emergency pediatrics specialist, on Chicago Med for 6 seasons as well as in crossover episodes on Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D.

We were sad to see her leave Chicago Med, but in the end, her character left by doing the right thing. Manning had been stealing heart medication for her mother and Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) had told Sharon Goodwin (S. Epatha Merkerson) that HE was the one who took the meds and she fired him. Once Manning heard Halstead had been fired, she ran to Goodwin and told the truth, saving Halstead’s job. 

This is actually DeVitto’s fourth Hallmark Christmas movie since 2014. She previously starred in Best Christmas Party Ever in 2014, Write Before Christmas in 2019, and The Christmas Promise in 2021

DeVitto was excited to share the new film release with her loyal fans and made an instagram post to remind fans to tune in:

The Hallmark Channel shared their own post with a photo of DeVitto:
