Geena Davis Checks Into Grey’s Anatomy

Geena Davis Checks Into Grey's Anatomy

Oscar winner Geena Davis has joined Grey’s Anatomy for its 11th season. Davis’ last series television appearance was as the President in Commander in Chief.

Davis will reportedly enjoy a “major arc” as a new surgeon, a character who’ll perhaps take the place of Dr. Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh, who left the series last season). 

Also returning to the show will be Kate Burton as protagonist Meredith’s mother. 

Shonda Rhimes has previously announced that the upcoming season will give Ellen Pompeo much to do: “It’s really a Meredith-centric season. 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.”

I hope Geena Davis continues to do feminist media criticism and activism. We need The Geena Davis Institute more than ever.
