Grey’s Anatomy has recruited Nip/Tuck actress Roma Maffia for a multi-episode arc.
Maffia will play a member of the hospital board named Roberta, TV Guide reports. She will first appear in the Nov. 29 episode titled “I Was Made for Lovin’ You” and may recur on the ABC medical drama.
According to ABC’s episode synopsis for “I Was Made For Lovin’ You”:
Cristina and Owen continue to figure out their relationship amidst the pending lawsuit; and Bailey argues with Ben over plans for their upcoming nuptials. Meanwhile, Callie recruits Jackson to help find a solution to Derek’s hand, but he is preoccupied by a shocking situation with April.
As you’ll recall, the victims of the plane crash that killed Lexie Grey and later Mark Sloan and led to Arizona’s amputation are working on a lawsuit, so Maffia could come into play as the hospital figures out who is to blame for the accident.
Earlier this week, the new Seattle Grace interns spilled some details about the upcoming episodes, Bailey’s wedding and teased about possible romances brewing.
Grey’s Anatomy 9×06 “Second Opinion” airs this Thursday at 9 p.m. ET on ABC with Chandra Wilson, who plays Miranda Bailey, directing. Can’t wait until then? Watch the previews showing Cristina Yang’s return.
