Marika Dominczyk has landed a guest-starring role on Grey’s Anatomy, EW has learned.
Dominczyk will play Eliza Minnick, but further details on the Brothers & Sisters alum’s character are being kept under wraps. She joins a recent trio of actresses heading to Grey Sloan in a season where Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) is slated to get a love interest. Bridget Regan was recently tapped for an unspecified role, while Tessa Ferrer is reprising her role as Arizona’s former flame Leah.
Domincyzk already has a connection to Shondaland: She’s the real life wife of Scandal star Scott Foley.
As first revealed by EW, with Callie (Sara Ramirez) gone, Arizona will move on in the romantic department this season. “We’re absolutely going to see it,” executive producer Shonda Rhimes said. “I’m very excited to introduce a love interest for her, and to get to tell a story with her that lets her be who she is, and to see who she is post the relationships that she’s had.”
For her part, Capshaw is excited for Arizona’s fresh start. “I hope that she ends up getting into a relationship with someone who can feel really confident, totally full, funny, sexy, exciting, and excited,” she recently told EW. “There’s a lot of fertile ground for that bloom in.”
Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. Capshaw will be joined by several other Grey Sloan docs at EW PopFest later this month. Click the banner above for details and tickets.
