Dr Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) and her doctor co-workers are forced to confront learning, life, love and death head on.
Five things you must know:
Dr Miranda Bailey
1 (Chandra Wilson) is the new chief of surgery and is being a dictator at home too. Meredith kicked
2 recovering alcoholic Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) out in episode 8 (November 2015) and Amelia is now back on the bottle. Alex (Justin Cham
3 bers) proposed to Jo (Camilla Luddington) in episode 8 but the hospital’s new non-fraternisation rules make things messy. We’re dying to know
4 why Jackson (Jesse Williams) was smiling after his episode 8 fight with estranged April (Sarah Drew). And Owen (Kevin
5 McKidd) claims that Meredith’s absent BFF Cristina (Sandra Oh) sat next to her at Derek’s funeral in the season 11 finale (June 2015). NB!
Forget about McDreamy – it’s all about McTasty now on Grey’s Anatomy (2005current). Swoon-worthy Dr Andrew DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti) has just been made a regular on the medical drama and should bring some spice to Dr Pierce’s (Kelly McCreary) love life…
1 Italian-born Giacomo moved from Rome, Italy to Toronto, Canada with his family at a young age but loves going “home”. He even got his first acting gig in Italy, as an uncredited walkon part in a 1999 Italian movie filmed at Rome’s famous Cinecittà studios.
2 Giacomo graduated from Humber College’s theatre programme in 2012 and got a recurring role in shortlived comedy Selfie (2014).
3 The 26-year-old is a bookworm and uses classics to get ideas for his characters’ mannerisms. “Knowledge isn’t only context but something tangible that you can draw from,” he says.
4 Apart from reading, he enjoys writing music and running his fingers across his baby-pink Fender Stratocaster guitar, which he calls “my favourite lady” on social media.
5 Speaking of ladies, Giacomo keeps his love life private, but we know that he worships all things Lara Croft from the Tomb Raider videogame (1996current) – Lara was played by Angelina Jolie in the 2001 and 2003 movies.
6 His other interests include playing videogames and cruising around on his Harley Davidson motorbike.
7 In early December 2015, Giacomo used his newfound fame and got involved in supporting US cancer awareness organisation Love Your Melon. The actor roped in his Grey’s co-stars to help raise awareness of cancer, stating that the disease has affected some of his loved ones.
Ellen Pompeo is back as Dr Meredith Grey.
