JLouis Mills is an American actor best known for playing the character Forrester in the hit television series 'Heartbeat' produced by NBC in 2016 .
'HEARTBEAT' was loosely inspired by the real life and achievements of Dr. Kathy Magliato. This unique character-driven medical drama follows Dr. Alex Panttiere (Melissa George, "The Slap"), an outspoken world-renowned heart transplant surgeon and one of the few women in her field. Stubborn and fearless, Alex always operates on her own terms.

Along with JLouis, the other cast members included actors Melissa George, Dave Annable, Don Hany, Shelley Conn, D.L. Hughley, Jamie Kennedy, Maya Erskine and Joshua Leonard.
