Grey’s Anatomy’s 9 Best Celebrity Appearances
With twelve seasons, a huge fanbase and as the medical drama that basically spawned a new genre of medical shows, Grey’s Anatomy has caught the eye of many people. Throughout the years the major cast has rotated in and out, helped along by the numerous shocking deaths creator and writer Shonda Rhimes inflicts upon audiences, and with different patient cases almost every episode there have been many opportunities for several actors and actresses, and other celebrities to make appearances in the show. Sometimes stars appear in popular shows before they are really famous, and sometimes they request to be on the show because they are personally fans. Either way check out 9 of the best celebrity appearances on Grey’s Anatomy.
9. Danielle Panabaker
Back in Season 6 in the epsiode “Holidaze,” actress Danielle Panabaker appeared as a patient who required heart surgery. At the time of her appearance in 2009, Panabaker was a recognizable young actress having appeared in many shows and a few films. Looking back on the episode now however, Panabaker is a much bigger star having had roles on Justified and Arrow and now stars on the CW hit The Flash.
8. Zach Gilford
Fans of the show Friday Night Lights were excited to see actor Zach Gilford on Grey’s Anatomy in the Season 5 episode, “Here’s to Future Days.” Gilford appeared as a soldier who has a pain so bad in his leg, he simply asks the doctors to amputate it, so he can get a prosthetic one and return to duty. His character Charlie is what inspired George to join the army, which we all know led to his death by jumping in front of a bus to save a woman before he was to ship out.
