As expected, Sarah Drew has joined the Grey's Anatomy cast full time.
An ABC rep confirms that Drew’s new contract, which kicks in this fall with the start of Season 7, was finalized this morning, promoting her to series regular status.
News of the former Everwood actress’ promotion comes less than 48 hours after fellow Grey's Anatomy rookie Jesse Williams joined the full-time ranks at Seattle Grace.
It’s safe to say that while the elevation of Williams, who plays Dr. Jackson Avery, to main cast member was met with general praise, Drew may not be so fortunate.
This is not her fault, of course, but Dr. April Kepner's. The Mercy West alumna and McDreamy quasi-stalker has not been a fan favorite with many. But times change.
We're talking about Grey's Anatomy, after all, a show with a penchant for endearing us to characters the more we get to know them and see them in new situations.
April’s heart-to-heart with Meredith in the sixth season finale was a pretty good start, too. Right? Are you excited Sarah is sticking around? Displeased? Indifferent?
