Jeananne Goossen plays Krista on the NBC medical drama “The Night Shift.”

Smart, beautiful and as comfortable with her sensuality as she is with a scalpel, Krista is a skilled surgical resident with something to prove.

The Canadian-born Goossen is best known on from prominent recurring roles on several series, including “Alcatraz,” “NCIS,” “CSI: NY” and “Emily Owens, M.D.”

Recently, Goossen starred in the hacker thriller “Debug,” opposite Jason Momoa. The film centered around six young computer hackers sent to work on a derelict space freighter who are forced to match wits with a vengeful artificial intelligence. She was also featured in the independent film “This Last Lonely Place,” opposite Rhys Coiro, which premiered at the Newport Film Festival to rave reviews. She was also prominently featured in the Screen Gems hit “The Vow,” opposite Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum.

Goossen is half Chinese, speaks fluent Japanese and has trained in martial arts. She is also an accomplished singer and recently released her first single. Prior to her acting career, she studied biochemistry at McGill University in Montreal.

NBC’s hit summer drama “The Night Shift” returned for season two in February 2015.
Life in the emergency room at San Antonio Memorial is never routine – and the men and women that make up the night shift team are a special breed. The new season finds the crew still recovering from a shocking hostage situation that left one of their colleagues dead. The experience brought them all a little closer but also exposed some personal weaknesses.

Adrenaline junkie TC Callahan (Eoin Macken, “Merlin”) is back at work after facing suspension.
TC’s best friend Topher (Ken Leung, “Lost”) is also back at work and has recovered from the gunshot wound that nearly took his life. Drew (Brendan Fehr, “Roswell”) was dealt some personal blows in the last year but is ready to embark on a new chapter in his life.

Lead night shift physician Jordan Alexander (Jill Flint, “The Good Wife”) – and TC’s Ex – has given up the job of running the night shift for now and she has some big decisions to make about her future.

Paul (Robert Bailey Jr., “Coraline”), still fresh out of medical school, continues to adjust to the rigors of a real-life emergency room. Krista (Jeananne Goossen, “Alcatraz”) also a relatively new intern, has gained some confidence but is still finding her way, while Kenny (JR Lemon, “Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas”), a seasoned nurse, keeps the doctors focused and isn’t afraid to break a few rules to get the job done.

The biggest news of all will come from night shift senior manager Michael Ragosa (Freddy Rodriguez, “Six Feet Under”). After facing a health scare last year, he is ready to make some big changes in his life that will affect everyone on the staff.


Kaena was launched in 2001 to showcase Mikael’s deep passion for Grenache. Kaena is a boutique winery that sources from Tierra Alta Vineyard and Larner Vineyard in the Ballard Canyon AVA , primarily.  Mikael who is part Hawaiian and raised on the Oahu shores, uses a shortened version of his given name for the brand – Kaena – which means “potential for greatness”.

That “greatness” is evident in the wines – in 2006 Wine Spectator named Mikael one of the top 10 new Rhone  producers.  Known affectionately by his peers and fans as The Grenache King – Kaena produces 2000 cases of Rhone & other varietals with an emphasis on Grenache.

Mikael credits his success, growth and nickname to his passion for making truly handcrafted wines.  He also credits his wife, Sally, for her design and management of the Kaena Tasting Room located in Los Olivos, California.
