Kim Raver Lands Recurring Role on Grey's Anatomy

at . Comments

Grey’s Anatomy has enlisted Jack Bauer’s ex and a former Lipstick Jungle star to throw a monkey wrench into Owen and Cristina’s burgeoning romance, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Sources confirm that Grey’s Anatomy has tapped former 24 heroine Kim Raver to join the cast as a new SGH surgeon and a possible love interest for Kevin McKidd’s Dr. Owen Hunt.

Back in August, Kevin McKidd revealed some Grey's Anatomy spoilers, namely that a major skeleton would tumble out of Owen’s closet in this transitional season of Grey's Anatomy.

“Someone comes to the hospital that he was connected to in his past, not his ex-fiancée, but it’s somebody we didn’t expect,” the actor said in an interview with E! Online.

“I think it could get a little tricky, to say the least, but also exciting and interesting."

"Hopefully it will bring [Owen and Cristina] closer in the long run.”

Raver’s role is recurring and she will debut on November 12. Who do you think she's playing, and are you excited? Or are all these new doctors just making the cast too crowded?

It was pure genius to cast Kim Raver on this show. She is dynamic and brightens up the place. She is a great actress, especially in a setting such as the hospital. I hope she stays a long time, it certainly makes the show more interesting.


yeah....bring Burke back, there really was chemistry between him and cristina


I am REALLY beginning to get BORED with this a faithful watcher for many seasons I HATE the addition of so many characters esp that stupid red head girl from mercy west already hitting on Alex in a round about way. Shonda-get some focas girl back on the main, smaller group of established characters. As for me, if something don't give soon, it is time to get a new favorite show!!!!


i love kim raver! she was my fav on lipstick jungle! hope she gets good material!

Oh please. He throws her into scaffolding and chiles her and he's seen as perfect for her? In what universe? If it were Burke's character people would be up in arms or ...tea bags. The hypocrisy from these " fans" is pathetic. Bring cardio god Burke back and end the charade already. No one can come close to the chemistry or the visual beauty they had together. We all lost characters we love Burke, Erica, Bailey's husband, Adele, and we're still here supporting the show. If you're so miserable watching the show do us all a favor and watch something else. Short of that, shut the heck up already because all your whining every week is just making the creators more and more wealthy and you whiners look like you've lost your minds. Ka ching!


Seriously this SUCKS BIG TIME!!!!! Owen and Cristina are the best on the show STOP messing with them!!!!


Ugh another girl really they killed off omalley for a female really think we need another hot dr! and i hate that i can pretty much predict into the future of greys and see an affair stirring up! Poo on you new lady!


Ana, thinks are getting rocky for Lexie and Mark too. That what the Cyler Leigh said: Lexie and Mark on the rocks: “Their relationship right now is pretty stable. They’re making good progress, but there is definitely something that comes up soon that throws a wrench in the whole thing. They’re coming up on some rough roads. As far as I’ve been told, it’s pretty intense and I’m just hoping that they do [last].� I hope they don't mess with MerDer and let them be happy in their marriage!! Finger crossed.


*** Ooops *** Wish I could spell! I should have said that I hoped the person from Owen's PAST was a cardio god.


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)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
