Since "graduating" from Greek in 2011, James has also notably appeared in Torchwood: Miracle Day and guest-starred on both CSI: NY and Shameless.

In other Grey's news, it looks like the future of the show is still bright.

Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey each signed two-year deals that will keep them on the long-running drama through the end of Season 12 (Spring 2016).

While ABC has yet to pick up the show beyond the current Season 10, that big piece of news made its already strong prospects for renewal even brighter.

Grey's Anatomy returns Thursday, February 27.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

We're all going to die. We don't get much say over how or when, but we do get to decide how we're gonna live. So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More Compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide.

Richard

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)
