'Grey's Anatomy' Promotes Giacomo Gianniotti to Series Regular (Exclusive)
ABC's Grey's Anatomy is adding another series regular to its roster.
The Shonda Rhimes medical drama has promoted Giacomo Gianniotti to series regular, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The Reign alum joined the Thursday night staple as the recurring role of Andrew DeLuca, one of the hospital's new intern class, in the season 11 finale.
This season, Gianniotti's character has become a love interest for fellow series regular Kelly McCreary's Dr. Maggie Pierce, Meredith's half-sister.
The actor, who next appears in Focus Features' Jesse Owens biopic Race (due Feb. 19), becomes Grey's Anatomy's latest series regular. He joins Martin Henderson, who made his debut as new doc Nathan Riggs in the last few episodes of the first half of season 12, as well as Jason George, who has recurred as Bailey's husband and fellow doctor Ben for multiple seasons.
He's repped by Thruline Entertainment and Characters. Check out the new trailer for Grey's Anatomy (and the rest of the TGIT lineup) below.
