Seattle Grace/Mercy West is about to meet another one of Derek Shepherd's sisters. According to TVLine
, Grey's Anatomy
has cast Neve Campbell as one of Derek's four sisters for multiple episodes in season 9.
Of Derek's four sisters, we've already met two: neurosurgeon Amelia (now on Private Practice
) and OB/GYN Nancy (played by Embeth Davidtz in season 3). It's unknown if Campbell will play Kathleen the psychiatrist or a fourth, unnamed and unknown sister.
My money's on the shrink, especially since Derek is going through a hard time this season as his severe hand injuries may prevent him from returning to his career as a surgeon.
Campbell is best known for her work on Party of Five
as Julia Salinger and for starring in the Scream
movies. More recently she starred in a new Titanic
miniseries on Encore and on NBC's failed drama The Philanthropist
Sadly Derek doesn't have any brothers, otherwise it would be a great opportunity to have a Party of Five
reunion with Matthew Fox guest starring as Jack Shepherd, a prominent spinal surgeon who knows a thing or two about surviving a plane crash.
Campbell is scheduled to appear in at least two episodes of Grey's Anatomy
