Oscar winning Actress to join Grey’s Anatomy cast!

Grey's Anatomy is showing so signs of slacking in it's 11th series, as they have a new addition to the long running show.

Oscar winning actress Geena Davis will be joining the cast in the next series as a new surgeon at Grey Sloan Memorial hospital. She is reported to have an important storyline arc in the upcoming season.

Geena won her Oscar back in 1989 for Best Supporting Actress in the film The Accidental Tourist. She is most famous however for her roles in Thelma and Louise opposite Susan Sarandon, and as President Mackenzie Allen in Commander in Chief.

Other big news for series 11 (spoiler alert!) includes the rumours of marriage troubles for Meredith McDreamy, with some speculation of a divorce for the on-screen couple.

Producers have said that the upcoming series will focus heavily on Meredith, which may give weight to the rumours.

”It’s really a Meredith-centric season,” says Shonda Rhimes, creator of Grey’s Anatomy. “There’s a lot of growth. She’s lost her person. Her sister has showed up. Her husband is chafing to go someplace else."

"She’s got all these things going on. … But for me right now, it feels like it’s Meredith. I’m feeling her more acutely because she’s lost her person.”
