Grey’s Anatomy is a medical ABC drama that’s made a lot of unknowns into stars. This includes these 10 guest stars who you may recognize nowadays.
Grey’s Anatomy is a medical drama that began airing in 2005 and has become a really popular show over the years. The series began with a group of medical interns who just started at a fictional hospital in Seattle and has followed their lives in and out of the hospital. The series follows the patients that come into the hospital and the way that the doctors have to deal with trying to cure what ails them as well as what’s going on in their personal lives.
The main cast of the series has expanded and changed over the years and on top of that, there have been a ton of guest stars that have appeared on the series for only a short period of time. Visiting doctors, patients, and family members show up for an episode or a short storyline before leaving and, often, we kind of forget about them because there are just so many.
