Alexa Havins to Play Thatcher's Girlfriend on Grey's Anatomy
Thatcher Grey is getting a new love interest on Grey's Anatomy.
When Meredith and Lexie Grey's father returns in February, he'll be bringing with him a new lady, played by soap opera star Alexa Havins, according to TV Guide.
From 2003-2007, blonde beauty Alexa played the very popular role of Babe Chandler on ABC's All My Children. She's recently been on Cold Case and CSI: Miami.
Both their respective mothers are now deceased, but how will Thatcher's daughters feel about him dating someone new - more specifically, someone so young?
It's safe to say they won't be overjoyed at least at the onset.
Not that it means anything in the Grey's universe, but Havins is 30. Chyler Leigh is only 28, while Ellen Pompeo (who could easily pass for 31) is actually 41!
This isn't the first time Grey's Anatomy has tapped the cast of All My Children. Leven Rambin (Sloane) was also a fixture on the daytime drama for five years.
