During Last week’s episode of True Blood, we saw Authority member, Molly, played by Tina Majorino, meet the true death. Well, even though she may be leaving True Blood, she hasn’t left the TV screens for good since she has not won a new part for herself. She has a guest-starring role on the upcoming season of Grey’s Anatomy. Another Season 5 cast member, Camilla Luddington who plays Claudette will also guest star on the same show.
The details on Majorino’s role are being kept under wraps, but executive producer Shonda Rhimes recently told TVGuide.com that just because they’ve hired some new actors — like the previously cast Gaius Charles and Camilla Luddington, who also guest-starred alongside Majorino on True Blood this season — does not mean they’re filling the supposed vacancies left by the death of Lexie (Chyler Leigh) and the exit of Eric Dane from the series.
“It’s really interesting that everybody seems to think we’ve hired new series regulars,” Rhimes said. “It’s not. We hired some really lovely guest stars who are doing some really lovely guest-star stuff. It boils down to the fact that all our doctors are attendings and one of the things that I want to see our attendings doing is teach, so that’s what we’re seeing.”
Majorino, 27, most recently guest-starred on True Blood, in which she was killed off during Sunday’s episode. Her other credits include Napoleon Dynamite, Veronica Mars, Big Love, Bones and the short-lived ABC drama The Deep End.
Grey’s Anatomy returns Thursday, Sept. 27 at 9/8c on ABC.
