Grey's Anatomy Casting New Trauma Counselor

by at . Comments

The new TV season is heating up and shows are searching for people to play new roles.

Our favorite is no exception. As if it didn't have enough eye candy, Grey's has feelers out for a sexy actor to play Andrew Perkins, a forty-something trauma counselor, says TV Guide.

Any thoughts on who should play this role - or how the Perkins character will be tied in with the SGMWH surgeons we know and love? Comments and theories are welcomed below.

I wanted to see Dr Wyatt too. There is gonna be a lot of docs who should go to see him: Derek will need to bring up about his dad being shot too. I think this will be a reoccuring character initially. That's how most of the characters have been added on to the cast after the first season. We do need more male docs though. Altman, Kepner and Avery may need to have a love interest introduced.

@Lina, Lexie's a very emotional person, who would definitely blame herself for something like this. Remember how she told Mark she was having trouble keeping distance from the Clarks in 6x19, and she was sobbing while she turned off the machine. She'll be very upset about this. In fact, according to Shonda, it's part of why she told Alex she loved him. I want to see how Derek deals with this, how the fact that he gave the order for a person to be unplugged led to innocent people being killed, and led to his own child's death (whenever he finds out about that).

Sounds like we have the answer to what Teddy will be doing in season 7

@Kristen, even if it was Lexie how "killed" Mr Clarks Wife, it wasn't her desicon.It was Derek. So I don't see her blaiming her self too much.

I disagree, I think Lexie, and Derek, are both going to be very shaken up from this. More so, then the rest, especially Lexie. She flat out said she felt like it was her fault. She is going to feel responsible for every person shot, for mer's stress making her lose the baby etc. i think we're in for a season of angsty Lexie...Have a feeling Mer will actually be the one to help everyone out...we'll see..i'm ready for the spoilers and pics to start coming in!!! 2 months (and a half:( )

Yea..I thought the show already has Dr.Wyatt to fill in that role...I do agree though that a counsellor or psychiatrist is definitely needed in the hospital, especially after the shooting incident. Lots of doctors would be suffering from PTSD..

PLEASE, NO MORE REGULARS!! THE CAST IS CRAZY BIG AND NOBODY WILL GET MUCH SCREENTIME IF ANYBODY ELSE IS ADDED. GET RID OF TEDDY AND APRIL AND THEN THEY CAN ADD THIS CHARACTER ON!

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.
