Meet DeLuca's sister.
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."
“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.
Grey's Anatomy kicks off with a two-hour premiere on Thursday, Sept. 28 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
