The Oscar-winning actress will play a new surgeon on Shonda Rhimes’ hit medical drama, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
With Grey’s alum Sandra Oh leaving the series, Grey’s Anatomy has been adding to its cast. Davis joins Caterina Scorsone and Kate Burton as a regular on the ABC series.
“It’s really a Meredith-centric season. There’s a lot of growth. She’s lost her person. Her sister has showed up. Her husband is chafing to go someplace else. She’s got all these things going on. … But for me right now, it feels like it’s Meredith. I’m feeling her more acutely because she’s lost her person,” Rhimes said in a statement to THR in July.
Davis is repped by CAA and Management 360.
