EARLY LIFE

Johnson-Hinds grew up with separated parents, dividing his time between both parents. As early as high school, he already began his first steps towards becoming an actor.

While attending Francis Libermann Catholic High School, the "Nurses" star took courses that allowed his talents to shine even more. During his senior year at Blessed Mother Teresa Catholic Secondary School, he began hosting events and even graduated with a drama award.

His high school years also involved many studio visits in Los Angeles where he would observe behind-the-scenes shoots and meet people from the industry.

LAUNCHING HIS CAREER

After high school, Johnson-Hinds took his talents to George Brown College, further honing his performing arts skills. At this point, he slowly built momentum through commercial stints and guest appearances.

Like Johnson-Hinds, Mantooth studied acting before entering the entertainment industry.

He landed appearances in notable shows such as "Life with Derek," and "The Jon Dore Show." His post-college run led to significant roles as he starred in "Flashpoint" and CW's very own "The LA Complex."

LANDING A ROLE ON "NURSES"

His latest Canadian released medical series, "Nurses," gives frontliners a fresh experience on the ups and downs of the modern profession, revolving around five rookie nurses' work-life relationships. 

With multiple roles involved, Johnson-Hinds shined as he took on the versatile character, Keon Colby, known for his jock life in college as the school's renowned football star. 

In strong pursuit of proving his worth beyond the sport, the character took on one of the most rigorous and tiring professions in the medical field.

MEDICAL DRAMAS

Johnson-Hinds' presence in the show goes beyond merely adding to his stellar performances. Aiming for a bigger impact, the network intends to promote appreciation of nurses through the "Thank a Nurse" campaign, giving them a chance to appear on "The Morning Show."

There have been several medical dramas in the past that brought their actors to success, including "Providence," "Doogie Howser MD," "Private Practice," and one of the oldest ones, "Emergency!" starring Randolph Mantooth.

Like Johnson-Hinds, Mantooth studied acting before entering the entertainment industry. He later starred in more shows, including "Charlie's Angels" and "Sons of Anarchy." With his bright future in the same field, likely, the "Nurses" star will only further his acting career.
