Alexa Havins to Play Thatcher's Girlfriend on Grey's Anatomy

at . Comments

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.

Steve Marsi is the Managing Editor of TV Fanatic. Follow him on Google+ or email him here.

Meredith won't care, but I'm sure Lexie will freak and cry trow little temper tantrum, because daddy is replacing her mommy with someone younger.

Definitely looking forward to how Meredith and Lexie are going to react upon meeting her. I can already imagine it actually, especially Lexie. But I still can't wait to see it. She seems like the exact girl a daughter would fear her older father to be dating.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

[narrating] "At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know. If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance, the view from the other side... is spectacular."

MEREDITH

Richard: Chin up. Put your shoulders back, walk proud, strut a little. Don't lick your wounds: celebrate them. The scars you bear are the signs of a competitor. You're in a lion fight, Stevens. Just because you didn't win doesn't mean you don't know how to roar.
