Grey's Anatomy Season 14: Who Is Getting a Sister?

at .

A new doctor is making her way to the halls of Seattle Grace, and she will be ruffling a few feathers in the process. 

According to Entertainment Weekly, Stefania Spampinato has landed a multi-episode arc on the veteran ABC medical sudser as Carina DeLuca

That surname may ring a bell because the character shares it with none other than Giacomo Gianniotti’s Andrew DeLuca.

According to the report, Carina will be playing a new doctor at Grey Sloan, and her arrival will pave the way for a lot of family drama when she is reunited with her brother. 

“This year, we’re going to definitely have DeLuca’s character a little more fleshed out with the arrival of his sister from Italy,” Gianniotti tells EW.

“We’re going to see a new dynamic in the hospital as his sister arrives, and it’s not exactly good news; he’s frustrated by it.”

“She has a very interesting and controversial — some would say — profession within the medical field, which makes him uncomfortable,” Gianniotti continues.

“It’s a thorn in his side, her being there, but everybody else is quite fond of her. She will be working [at the hospital], and she’s going to help tell the story of DeLuca and how he comes from Italy."

"They’re going to speak a little bit of Italian, which will be nice for the Italian fans, because [the show’s] so big in Italy.”

We're all for the character being fleshed out, but do we really need more family drama in the hospital?

Andrew is a decent enough character, so let's hope the drama thrown in is fresh and exciting. 

There has been a lot of casting scoop of late for Grey's Anatomy what with the news that Marika Dominczyk and Jerrika Hinton are out of the upcoming season.
