Amy Loughren was devastated when she found out that her most trusted colleague, Charles Cullen, was believed to have murdered over 400 people. So, like the “good nurse” she is, Amy risked her life and livelihood to bring justice to the victims by anonymously cooperating with the police.
This short bio explores her life.
Meet Amy Loughren, The Subject Of Netflix’s The Good Nurse
Amy Loughren is the subject of the Netflix drama titled The Good Nurse. She is portrayed by Jessica Chastain and the story focuses more on Amy rather than the killer.
It was 2003 when Amy was first contacted by the police about the matter regarding Charles Cullen. They told her that her close friend was a serial killer believed to have murdered many patients by poisoning them with lethal doses of medicine. Obviously, the news was shocking to the nurse who was so close to Cullen that he had helped her conceal her heart condition from her employers.
The nurse then went on to read the evidence. Finding it to be “sinister,” she agreed to help the police. She was wired up and eventually, got the killer to confess.
Three years later, Charles was finally convinced of murdering 29 people in 9 hospitals. But the true number of people he murdered is thought to be around 400 making him the most prolific serial killer in US history.
Fast forward to early 2020, Amy then agreed to film her life story despite the trepidation. “I realized it would give me a platform to explain myself and also give a voice to others who have loved dark people or have loved those with serious mental illness that led to dark acts,” she explained why she agreed.
Thereafter, she worked closely with her actors; especially Eddie. Amy recalled telling him about her description of the killer as he noted each word and put those into his craft.
Now, Amy has freed herself from the guilts. Infact, she’s grateful for what she had in that friendship with the murderer because he saved her life. “I am still here with my daughters because of him. There was divine intervention involved,” she added.
The last time Amy saw her old friend was when he found out that she had been working for the New Jersey Crown Prosecution.
