Live Tyler's Michelle Blake is missed on the show, but in her absence comes new character Tommy Vega, played by Gina Torres. The new character has made a strong impression with fans — some who were already big fans of Gina Torres as an actor while others were quickly won over by her performance. 

Longtime fans of Torres were thrilled to see her the moment she came on. "TOMMY MF VEGA YEAHHHH WELCOME TO THE 126!!!!! #911LoneStar glad to have you," wrote one fan. "I’ve always loved Gina Torres. Looking forward to seeing her story evolve," wrote another. "Gina Torres is going to be a great addition to this show. Good to have her on this show," wrote this fan.

It wasn't long before Tommy Vega was making her own unique impact on the show, first with an intense scene where she reset a broken bone by hand, followed soon after by a powerfully emotional scene shared with her husband after her first 24-hour shift.
