Exclusive: Another 'Grey's Anatomy' Actress Exits

Posted on

Janinagavankar_lIt’s time for another round of, “Guess who’s leaving Grey’s Anatomy now?”

Here are your clues: The person is female. She played an intern. Her character’s name is Lisa. And…oh, yeah, if you blinked you probably missed her.

If you guessed Janina Gavankar, congratulations, you saw the photo to the left and connected the dots!

Sources confirm to me exclusively that the L Word alum, who joined the cast in September as one of several new Seattle Grace interns, has left the show after just two episodes. Per one insider, the role turned out to be smaller than Gavankar had hoped (so small that I don’t even recall seeing her on screen.) And without a guarantee that her part would grow, the actress chose to move on.

There’s buzz Gavankar may be circling a far meatier role in White Collar, the USA Network pilot starring Matthew Bomer, Tim DeKay and Tiffani Thiessen.

Disappointed Gavankar’s Grey’s gig turned out to be much ado about nothing? Or are you of the opinion that Seattle Grace has enough doctors on staff? Do share.
