As Sandra Oh prepares to exit ‘Grey’s, alum Isaiah Washington is getting ready to return after his character, Cr. Preston Burke, left Oh’s character, Cristina Yang, standing at the altar in 2007. Washington will appear in an upcoming May episode.
And according to Deadline.com, actors Tessa Ferrer and Gaius Charles, who were promoted as series regulars in Season 10, won’t be part of the regular cast in Season 11 of ‘Grey’s Anatomy.’ The pair had been promoted along with Camilla Luddington and Jerikka Hinton who apparently will stay on as regulars at Seattle Grace.
Although their contracts were not picked up, it is unclear as to whether or not they will appear on the long-running medical drama as guest stars.
Tessa Ferrer is the daughter of singer Debby Boone and the granddaughter of Hollywood legend, actor and singer Pat Boone.
On an even sadder note, co-star Patrick Dempsey’s mother lost her battle with cancer.
‘Grey’s Anatomy’ airs Thursdays at 9:00 PM on ABC.
