It may not be often that a ten-year-old actress gets a shot at being one of the stars of a new major network television show. That is just what has happened to Nikki Hahn, however. She will play in NBC's the "Night Shift," which will feature those who are faced with saving lives daily, while they still have to operate a hospital. One of the doctors featured in the show, TC Callahan, was a soldier in Afghanistan, but now he comes to see he has new battles to face, saving lives as a doctor in a hospital.
The show has its share of occasional practical jokes. Hahn gets to star in the show with Brendan Fehr, who played in the Fox television show, "Bones," Ken Leung, who was one of the stars of "Lost," Freddy Rodriquez, who played in" Ugly Betty" and Eoin Macken, who was in "Merlin, The Tudors." The executive producer/writer is Gabe Sachs, who was also responsible for "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" and "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules."
Nikki Hahn's family lives where the show is being filmed. She will stay with them during filming. There has been no announcement of when the show will air. Hahn, who began as a child model at three, is best known for her role in a well-known comedy skit as Sophie Hanks on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" She has also been in a number of television shows, such as "NCIS Los Angeles," "CSI Miami," "Criminal Minds" and many others.
What will be next for the young star? Time will tell. She has already shown she can play roles in comedy, drama and even shows that are a little scary, such as "American Horror Story."
