The Newest Grey's Anatomy Guest Star

by at . Comments

Academy Award-nominated actress Shohreh Aghdashloo will guest star on Grey's Anatomy on its next new episode, entitled "Scars and Souvenirs," which is scheduled to air Thursday, March 15.

The Newest Grey's Anatomy Guest StarThe beautiful, talented 54-year-old will portray patient Helen Crawford.

Aghdashloo, who recently appeared in the films The Nativity Story, X-Men: The Last Stand and The Lake House, first gained international recognition for her extraordinary work in House of Sand and Fog.

She not only garnered an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress in that role, but won Supporting Actress honors at the Independent Spirit Awards, the New York Film Critics Association and the Los Angeles Film Critics Association.

Having left her native Iran during the 1978 Islamic revolution, she is believed to be the first actress from that nation to cross over into mainstream Hollywood cinema. We're certainly looking forward to seeing what she brings to the set of Grey's Anatomy in just over two weeks.

From the stills of the next episode I saw on greys-media.com it looks like she will play a patient that is close to McDreamy. I am not sure how but he has a connection to her....Can't wait to see.
