Alexis Floyd from Inventing Anna has joined the cast of Grey’s Anatomy as a series regular. She will play the role of Simone Griffin, a new first-year surgical resident at Grey Sloan on season 19 of the primetime medical drama. Her character is described by Deadline as a funny, whip-smart, high achiever with a complicated family dynamic. She grew up in Seattle, but never wanted to work at Grey Sloan because of a painful personal history with the hospital.

The show returns on October 6, 2022! Grey’s airs on ABC!
