Sarah Drew to Be a Regular in 'Grey's Anatomy' Season 7


The actress who plays McDreamy's secret admirer, Dr. April, is one of two newcomers to the show that have been promoted.

Sarah Drew's status on "Grey's Anatomy" has been upped to series regular. Following a number of departures from the cast ensemble such as Katherine Heigl, the show has been promoting more and more recurring cast to be a regular, the latest one being Drew.

The "Everwood" alumna plays Dr. April Kepner who is one of the four surgical residents from Mercy West Hospital introduced in the beginning of season 6. The other two transferred doctors have been axed in the killer season finale while Jesse Williams' Jackson Avery has been promoted to be a regular character first.

The deal to have Drew joining Ellen Pompeo and others was finalized on Wednesday, June 9 morning. Williams' deal meanwhile closed up just 48 hours in prior. Both will have more prominent role when the seventh season starts in September.

    Sarah Drew's character as April is irritating, honestly do not think the public will have sympathy. hopefully that "April" mature and show that a person with so much insecurity and awkwardness can improve and be nice (it is enough to tolerate Lexie which is also irritanting ), because the truth, we do not like it that it interferes with Meredith and Dr. Shepherd. Otherwise the solution would be to find another character like Dr. Bailey that puts stability and professionalism to the problems that occur in the hospital.
