As we learned on last week's rollercoaster Grey's Anatomy season premiere, cash-strapped Seattle Grace is getting ready to merge with its crosstown rival hospital, Mercy West.
Sarah Drew is the latest to score a recurring role as one of the new faces at the revamped SGH. The actress, who turns 29 tomorrow, will be playing a doctor named April.
The hospital merger takes place on the October 15 episode, "Invasion," when Drew and fellow Mercy West newcomers Robert Baker, Jesse Williams and Nora Zehetner arrive.
The "Invasion" of fresh faces presumably will compete with Seattle Grace regulars.
Interestingly, Sarah Drew was recently cast on Inside the Box, a new pilot developed by Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice creator Shonda Rhimes that was never picked up.
