Michael Vartan: Do As The Romans Do

Michael Vartan attends the Rome Fiction Fest held at the Adriano Cinema in Rome, Italy on Monday (July 5).

The 41-year-old French-American actor took part in the international festival dedicated to highlighting actors and producers of television fiction.

At the event, Michael spoke a little bit about his show HawthoRNe and how he thinks it stands out from other medical dramas.

“What we like to think makes our show different from the rest of the medical shows is that it is told through variety,” Michael shared during an open table discussion. “A lot of the shows deal with doctors and the surgeons, the people who can give and take life, but our show is told through the eyes of a nurse…who are the people that really care for the patients and sick people.”
