'Grey's Anatomy' Enlists Bethany Joy Lenz for Season 14 Arc (Exclusive)
Grey's Anatomy is refilling its ranks.
A day after series regular Martin Henderson and recurring guest star Abigail Spencer exited, the ABC Shondaland drama has enlisted One Tree Hill grad Bethany Joy Lenz.
The actress will have a guest arc on the show's 14th season and play Jenny. In typical Shondaland fashion, character details are being kept under wraps. A total number of episodes is also being kept under lock and key.
Grey's Anatomy is Lenz's second trip to Shondaland. The actress was among the original cast of ABC's The Catch. When the show went in a different direction after the pilot, the role was recast. The Catch was canceled in May year after a two-season run.
Lenz's TV credits also include Agents of SHIELD, Dexter and The Guiding Light. She's repped by APA and Atlas Artists.
Lenz joins Grey's as the Ellen Pompeo drama is approaching its 300th episode and as it continues to replenish its cast. The drama last season said farewell to series regular Jerrika Hinton (Stephanie), while Jason George (Ben) is also poised to transition to the upcoming Grey's firefighter spinoff later this season. The drama, which welcomed back Krista Vernoff as co-showrunner (after her run in seasons one through seven), also recently introduced six new interns as the veteran drama looks to repopulate its ranks.
