We have another new addition to the world of “Grey’s Anatomy” — but like some of the previously-announced characters to be played by Camilla Luddington and Gaius Charles, we really don’t know much at all about this role just. As a matter of fact, the actress taking on the part is not even someone with that much of a resume.
According to a new report from TVLine, Tessa Ferrer — a relative newcomer to the Hollywood scene without many major credits to her name save for some short films — has been cast for a part that is currently listed as recurring. Conventional wisdom suggests that given her age, she is probably going to be one of the new interns working at Seattle Grace under the likes of Meredith and Cristina. However, what is a bit more unclear at the moment is just what sort of character that she will be.
One possibility for this role that we cannot ignore, though, is that she could end up somehow becoming a love interest for Alex. After all, we already know that the long-ignored character is finally going to get a chance to move on from Izzie this season, and we don’t know who it will be with just yet. Why wouldn’t it be with someone working at Seattle Grace? After all, there’s been so many relationships at the hospital already.
The reason for these new characters is twofold — not only do producers need to make up for Kim Raver, Chyler Leigh, and Eric Dane all leaving the show, but they also have to compensate for the fact that not all of our beloved doctors will be working in the same place anymore.
