Scrubs stars Zach Braff and Donald Faison, who played J.D. and Turk in the quirky medical series, also shared their thank-you messages.

Faison said: “There are real heroes on the front line, real heroes out in the street; I’m not one of them, I’m in my house.”

His former co-star and friend Braff said: “Thank you for your courage and for going out there in the world and doing everything you can to fight this horrible, horrible virus.”

Sandra Oh, who rose to fame as eccentric but brilliant cardiothoracic surgeon Cristina Yang in Grey’s Anatomy, thanked “administrators, to all the cleaning staff and cafeteria staff and to all the volunteers…”.

The Killing Eve star later added: “I wish you all health and safety, and a quick shout out to my brother-in-law Scott, who is an ER doctor up in Vancouver. I love you, man.”

English actor Freddie Highmore, who stars in The Good Doctor, Edie Falco, and ER star Julianna Margulies also appear in the video.

An end note after their messages reads: “Thank you for your courage, your sacrifice, and for being the best of us.”
