Yaya DaCosta to join ‘Chicago Fire’ spin-off


Perhaps on the strength of her starring turn as Whitney Houston in the Lifetime biopic, model-turned-actress Yaya DaCosta is in high demand.

The former “America’s Next Top Model” contestant has signed on to join the cast of “Chicago Med,” the upcoming spin-off of the NBC’s hit drama “Chicago Fire.”

DaCosta will play a nurse named Maggie Seaver and will be introduced into the storyline of a future episode of “Chicago Fire” when she begins a relationship with Kelly, whom she’s been friends with since high school.

Joining DaCosta on the show will be veteran actress S. Epatha Merkerson, who will portray hospital head Sharon Goodwin.

Merkerson was last seen on BET’s hit drama “Being Mary Jane.”

No air date for Chicago Med has been announced.
