True Blood's Camilla Luddington to join Grey's Anatomy for season 9

It's probably fair to say that the last episode of Grey's Anatomy season 8 had us bawling our eyes out and after losing several members of the cast, there are going to be a few new faces around Seattle Grace. Among those eating in the cafeteria, doing the dirty in the on call room and occasionally saving a life will be actress Camilla Luddington, who is apparently all set to join the cast.

Weirdly, you might know Camilla not only from her role as True Blood's Claudette but from that time she played Kate Middleton in the made for TV movie, William and Kate, that came out last year. And don't pretend you didn't watch it, we know you did.

But now K-Middy will be taking to the corridors of Seattle Grace (STAT!) and according to Deadline, has been offered a recurring role with the possibility of it becoming a regular gig next season. Set to play a new doctor, we imagine she's a sort-of replacement for one of our favourite characters (we won't spoil it by naming names), who was killed off after the plane crash at the end of season 8.

Camilla isn't the only new face to be joining the cast and according to creator Shonda Rhimes, the additions to the cast will include 2 new doctors, a couple of medical professionals, a new resident and 2 flight attendants, which is making us wonder whether we should expect some flashbacks to explain what actually went down on the plane before the crash.
