Grey's Anatomy has cast actress Juliet Mills for a recurring role on the soap.
The star, who appeared in Hot in Cleveland, will take on the role of Maxine, according to TheWrap, for at least three episodes.
Making her debut in last night's (March 30) episode 'Pick Yourself Up', the character enters the hospital with a friend, though has a connection to Jules Millin (Adelaide Kane) outside the Grey Sloan.
Kane herself is also relatively new to the show, having only joined the series at the start of the current 19th season.
While new stars are coming on board, Grey's Anatomy recently saw some big departures with the exits of Ellen Pompeo as Meredith Grey and showrunner Krista Vernoff. The series will also soon see the exit of Kelly McCreary as Dr Maggie Pierce.
Kevin McKidd, meanwhile, has spoken of his own future as Owen Hunt, revealing in a new interview that he isn't planning to go anywhere for the moment.
"I love playing my character on Grey’s. I love what it’s done for my life and it’s like a family. Truly," he told RadioTimes.com.
"We’ve been there so long, we’ve seen people have babies, get married, have sad things happen in their lives, kids' graduations, it’s been so long now. It’s like my extended family, so I’m not going anywhere any time soon from that show."
Grey's Anatomy was recently renewed for season 20, with Meg Marinis set to step in as the new showrunner.
Grey's Anatomy season 19 airs on Thursdays on ABC in the US. The show streams on Disney+ in the UK, where new episodes premiere on Wednesdays.
