Dr. Lily Chao - The feisty doctor of BBC One's 'Casualty' has been promoted to Registrar

Crystal Yu, actress, Casualty, acting

An intelligent, logical, high-achiever, Lily finds the theory easy, but she continues to struggle with her bedside manner.


Lily comes from a hard-working family who like to boast about their doctor daughter, but have never really told her they are proud of her. As such Lily is confident, accomplished and focussed, but really all she wants is for someone to say ‘well done’.


Lily’s world is a meritocracy where you can have whatever you want if you work hard enough for it. She doesn’t care that she’s not well-liked as she’s ticking-off competencies and learning new medical skills. She’s technically brilliant and is definitely someone you’d want as your doctor – as long as you’re not easily offended.
