Meet DeLuca's sister.
Grey's Anatomy has cast Sicilian-born actress Stefania Spampinato as Dr. Andrew DeLuca's sibling, Carina DeLuca, for the upcoming 14th season, ET confirms.
As was previously reported by ET, Spampinato will have a multi-episode arc on ABC's hit medical drama as a new doctor at Seattle's Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. Details on Carina's medical profession and the reason for her arrival in Seattle, Washington, is being kept under wraps.
Giacomo Gianniotti, who plays Andrew, told ET on Sunday that Carina's presence at Grey Sloan will be problematic for his character.
“She is going to be a new presence at the hospital," Gianniotti said. "She comes from Italy, as my character is Italian, and you get to see us exchanging some blows in Italian, which will be very interesting."
“Her profession, although we can’t disclose it, is a very interesting one,” he hinted. “It’s going to keep a lot of the doctors on their toes, make some doctors uncomfortable [and] some people will be glad about [her coming on]. She’ll stir things up with a European background and take on medicine.”
Gianniotti was excited for the addition of Spampinato to the Grey's ensemble.
“I can’t wait for you guys to meet her. She’s lovely. She’s going to be a great new addition to the show,” he said.
Entertainment Weekly first reported Spampinato's casting.
Grey's Anatomy kicks off with a two-hour premiere on Thursday, Sept. 28 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
