Constance Zimmer to Recur on Grey's Anatomy

at . Comments

Constance Zimmer has signed on for a recurring role on Grey’s Anatomy as Dr. Cahill, who's described as "a super-confident, self-possessed, laser-focused professional with a wicked sense of humor."

In other words, her character is cut straight from the Shonda Rhimes cloth.

Speaking of Rhimes, and based on the recurring nature of Zimmer's role, it's possible Dr. Cahill could be the new love interest for Alex that the series creator and executive producer has promised.

Just one theory, of course, but one that doesn't feel far-fetched.

Zimmer's many TV credits include Entourage, Royal Pains, Boston Legal and The New Normal. You can also see her in Netflix’s upcoming original political thriller House of Cards, which looks awesome.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Meredith: You're me.
Amelia: What?
Meredith: You're me before Derek. I can be here for you. I can do this. I get you. I can be a twisted sister for you. Just tell me how do you want to play this?

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."
