Another Shepherd sister is coming out of the woodwork on Grey’s Anatomy.
TVLine has learned exclusively that Party of Five vet Neve Campbell is set to appear in multiple episodes of ABC’s long-running medical drama as one of Derek’s (Patrick Dempsey) four sisters.
It’s not clear which sibling Campbell will play, but we can safely rule out Amelia (currently played by Caterina Scorsone on Private Practice) and Nancy (previously played by Embeth Davitz). That leaves Kathleen the psychiatrist or unnamed Sister No. 4.
The latest member of the Shepherd clan arrives during a particularly tumultuous time in Derek’s life. The severe hand injury he sustained in last May’s plane crash has brought his storied surgical career to a standstill. (Let’s hope there’s less carnage involved than when they played love interests in the horror flick Scream 3.)
Campbell, who can currently be seen in Encore’s 12-hour Titanic: Blood and Steel miniseries, is set to appear in at least two episodes of Grey’s.Follow @MichaelAusiello
