In the Lifetime movie Patient Killer, therapist Victoria Wrightmar hypnotizes her new patient Blair and discovers that her dreams are shockingly similar to Victoria’s former patient Dylan. Dylan killed himself under Victoria’s care, so of course the discovery doesn’t sit well with Victoria. In fact, ever since Blair showed up, Victoria’s life starts to spin out of control. Is it a coincidence or is someone pulling everyone’s strings?
That someone could be Doctor Sylvan. He’s portrayed by Richard Burgi who’s best known for his roles as Karl Mayer on Desperate Housewives, DA Dan Russell on Body of Proof, Ted Davis on One Tree Hill, and Kevin Carroll on 24. He started out as a soap opera actor. He was Phillip Collier on Days of Our Lives and Chad Rollo on Another World in the late 1980s. Patient Killer premieres on Lifetime on August 2 at 9pm. It will air again on August 3 at 1am and August 8 at 6pm.
