Kim Raver Joins Grey's Anatomy Cast Full-Time

at . Comments

Kim Raver has been promoted to a series regular on Grey's Anatomy, just two months after she joined the medical soap/drama as a recurring character, Dr. Teddy Altman.

Teddy, the hospital's new cardio surgeon, was brought in by her former Army colleague, Dr. Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) with whom we learned she has quite a history.

Professing feelings for Owen and laying the groundwork for a love triangle, her arrival on the scene has already caused quite an uproar among many fans of Owenstina.

That would be Owen and Christina (Sandra Oh), whose chemistry has become very popular since McKidd joined the cast last season. How will the love triangle play out?

Raver is expected to appear in all but one of the show's remaining episodes this season. Kim's promotion makes a staggering 14 full-time cast members on the drama.

She takes over for Jessica Capshaw (Arizona) as the newest full-time cast member. Among Kim Raver's other recent credits include 24, Lipstick Jungle and The Nine.

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
