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.

A Hard Day's Night
The series opens with Meredith removing a sofa pillow from the bare bottom of a man named Derek. The rest is history.

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)

Derek: I wanna be with you forever, and you wanna be with me forever. In order to do that we need to make vows. A commitment. A contract. Give me a piece of paper.
Meredith: I don't! I... I... I don't. I have post its!
Derek: (takes the post its and a pen) Ok. What do we wanna promise each other?
Meredith: That you'll love me... even when you hate me.
Derek: To love each other, even when we hate each other. (writes it down) No running. Ever! (Mer smiles and comes and sits in front of him) Nobody walks out. No matter what happens.
Meredith: No running.
Derek: (writes it down) What else?
Meredith: That we'll take care of each other, even when we're old, and smelly, and senile. And... if I get Alzheimer's and forget you...
Derek: I will remind you who I am, every day. To take care when old, senile, and smelly (writes it down) This is forever. (signs it) Sign.
Meredith: This is our wedding. A post it? (smiles)
Derek: Mhmmm. If you sign it.
Meredith: (signs it, and hands it back. Has tears in her eyes) Now what?
Derek: Now I kiss the bride. (They kiss)
Meredith: (smiling) Married.
Derek: (smiling) Married. (sticks their post it in Mer's locker) You see that? (Mer nods and smiles) Plenty of time.
