Grey’s Anatomy is enlisting Jack Bauer’s ex to throw a monkey wrench into Owen and Cristina’s burgeoning romance. Sources confirm that Grey’s has tapped former 24 heroine Kim Raver to join the cast as a new surgeon and a possible love interest for Kevin McKidd’s doc.
Back in August, Owen’s portrayer, Kevin McKidd, revealed that a major skeleton would tumble out of Owen’s closet this season. “Someone comes to the hospital that he was connected to in his past, not his ex-fiancée, but it’s somebody we didn’t expect,” the actor told E! Online. “I think it could get a little tricky, but exciting and interesting. Hopefully it will bring [Owen and Cristina] closer in the long run.”
Raver’s role is recurring and she will debut in this season’s ninth episode, airing Nov. 12.
