Dr. Valentina Castro Is Poised to Ruffle a Few Feathers on Season 2 of 'New Amsterdam'


On the Season 2 premiere of New Amsterdam, fans nearly lost their minds when a new woman was seen sitting in Dr. Helen Sharpe’s oncology office. 

While some viewers immediately jumped to the conclusion that the beloved character had died in the ambulance accident at the end of Season 1, thankfully, that wasn’t the case. Though another doctor is now treating Max’s throat cancer, Helen is still very much with us.

Who is Dr. Valentina Castro on New Amsterdam?

Valentina, who’s played by actress Ana Villafañe, is Max’s new oncologist. It’s been three months since the crash that left his wife Georgia dead, and Helen agreed to hand over his case to the "young, whip-smart, and enthusiastic" doctor, whose groundbreaking gene therapy research seems to be working on the newly widowed father of one.
