As Grey's Anatomy viewers learned on the season premiere, Seattle Grace is about to merge with Mercy West.

The result will be an influx of new characters, one of whom will be portrayed by Sarah Drew. The actress - most recently seen as Kitty Romano on Mad Men - will play the recurring role of a doctor named April.

The official hospital merger takes place on October 15.

The actress was originally cast on Inside the Box, a pilot created by Shonda Rhimes that was never picked up.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.
