The daughter of Mary and Liberty DeVitto (who was Billy Joel’s drummer for 28 years), Torrey Joël DeVitto has a long history in the music and entertainment industry. She began violin lessons at age six and played with a number of youth orchestras including the Florida Symphony Youth Orchestra. She also studied dance and began working in commercials and modeling at the age of 15.
In television, Torrey is perhaps best known for her role as Meredith Fell in Vampire Diaries and was a regular in Army Wives, , One Tree Hill and Pretty Little Liars. Her big screen credits include roles in Starcrossed, I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer, The Rite with Anthony Hopkins, Green Flash and Killer Movie.
Outside work, Torrey is an ardent supporter of hospice and palliative care, which is how she became involved with Road to Hope. A Hospice Ambassador for the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization since 2011, she hosted a screening of the Hospice Foundation’s first documentary, Okuyamba, at UCLA’s James Bridges Theatre in 2012. Less than a year later, she was travelling to Africa where she spent two weeks as a member of the crew filming Road to Hope.
Torrey currently stars in the NBC drama, Chicago Med, in which she plays the role of Dr. Natalie Manning, a pediatrician in the chaotic ER department. The first season of the Chicago Fire/Chicago PD spin-off was a huge success and the series has been renewed for another season. Torrey shares her life with her dogs Beau and Homie, adopted from Much Love, a pet adoption agency in Los Angeles.
Fun Fact: It was in the middle of recording her narration for Road to Hope that she received word she’d been cast in a new NBC television series: Chicago Med.
