All that’s known about the actress’ gig, which was first reported by TVGuide.com, is that she will play an intern named Heather (per Zap2It) who works at Seattle Grace — or possibly another hospital to be featured in the coming season. (Remember that pre-plane crash, a couple of the docs were due to relocate to new jobs.)

Majorino won’t be the only fresh blood on Grey’s this season, which will be down three cast members with Chyler Leigh and Kim Raver’s exits in last May’s finale and Eric Dane only back for two episodes. Gaius Charles (Friday Night Lights) and Camilla Luddington (William & Kate) have come onboard in multi-episode roles.

Majorino’s other TV credits include Bones, the animated series Napoleon Dynamite and True Blood (on which she recurred this season until — SPOILER ALERT! — she was killed off this past Sunday).

Grey’s Anatomy returns Thursday, Sept. 27 at 9/8c.
