The show has many characters people have grown to love throughout its running. Recently, Antonia Thomas, who portrays Claire on the screen, revealed why The Good Doctor has so many fans.

Thomas shares her opinion

When Antonia read the script of The Good Doctor for the very first time, she was instantly hooked. In one of her interviews, the actress shared that you don’t see a leading character with autism every day.

But why the show has earned so many loyal followers so quickly? Thomas believes because it’s very different from any other series.

She said:

Anybody with a difference can relate to the show and see that they can achieve whatever they want to achieve.

The actress also completely fell in love with Claire because she’s a dream to play as she is so “multilayered and flowed.”

Thomas explained:

She’s really richly drawn. She’s a ball of contradictions in that she’s very smart and driven and has a huge heart, but she’s immediately thrown into a situation with a steep learning curve and quite quickly she makes some very big mistakes.

It’s been revealed that The Good Doctor was renewed for the third season and we can’t wait to see what new interesting challenges our favorite characters will be faced with.
