Sarah Michelle Gellar,
Portrays the life of the former First Lady of the United States, Jacqueline Kennedy in the aftermath of the assassination of her husband, President John Fitzgerald Kennedy, as she becomes Jackie O. in life after Camelot.
I played the physician who treated JFK at Parkland Memorial. I removed him from the car and told Jackie (Roma) "You've got to let me have him." As far as the factual depiction, I brought up to the director that, if JFK had been shot in the neck (as we were being told), he wouldn't have been orally intubated, he would have had a tracheotomy. Even though this created more work for the staff, when the fact checker found that JFK DID actually have a "trach," that was the way it was filmed.
If you notice the scene where we are actually working on JFK (filmed in an old surgery suite at the Richmond, VA Veteran's Administration Hospital), you will see that he is being "bagged" via a tracheotomy tube. I thought the film crew paid an incredible amount of attention to detail.
As a side note, having been in the room when Roma Downey filmed the scene where JFK is pronounced dead, she was spectacular! She had the cast and crew in tears! NOW THAT'S ACTING!
