- In September, “Grey’s Anatomy” season 15 kicked off on ABC.
- Joining the cast is “The OC” alum Chris Carmack, who is playing Grey Sloan Memorial’s new ortho surgeon.
- Alex Landi is also joining the cast as the show’s first gay male surgeon.
It’s hard to believe that season 15 of “Grey’s Anatomy” is already well underway. In September, the show premiered along with two new cast members.
So who are Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital’s newest employees? Chris Carmack and Alex Landi have both joined the show as recurring cast members.
Chris Carmack joined the cast as Dr. Atticus Lincoln
Carmack, who you might know from “The OC” and “Nashville,” is playing a new ortho surgeon named Link, who’s spent a lot of the season so far hitting on various doctors, including Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) without much luck.
“He’s the first ortho god that we’ve had [at Grey Sloan] since Callie, who was an ortho goddess in my mind,” executive producer Krista Vernoff told TVLine last month. “Chris brings his own sense of humour to the set, and that has been really joyful to explore.”
Alex Landi joined the cast as Dr. Nico Kim
Landi is relatively new to the acting world but has credits that include a recent guest-starring role on CBS’ “Bull.”
His character, Dr. Nico Kim, is a major milestone for the show as he’s the show’s first openly gay male surgeon, despite the fact that lesbian pediatric surgeon Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) and bisexual ortho surgeon Callie (Sara Ramirez) had been on the show for years until their departures in seasons 13 and 14.
Kim made his debut in the Season 15 premiere and has already become a fan favourite as he potentially sparked a romance with fellow doc Levi “Glasses” Schmitt.
