Alexis Floyd is joining Grey’s Anatomy as a new series regular heading into season 19!

Floyd most recently starred in Shonda Rhimes’ Inventing Anna, so it seems that the actress is staying in the Shondaland realm with her latest role on Grey’s Anatomy. 

According to Deadline, Floyd will be joining the show as the character Simone Griffin, a first-year surgical resident who is witty and high-achieving. Simone grew up in Seattle but hoped to avoid working at Grey Sloan in the future due to an emotional personal history with the hospital.

Grey’s Anatomy, like all of Shonda [Rhimes]’ canon, is a genre re-defining show that remains masterfully committed to diversity, relevancy and vulnerability,” Floyd told Deadline. “Joining the cast in its 19th season is an immeasurable honor, and quite simply, it’s gonna be wicked fun.”

Floyd landed her first major recurring role in the third season of Freeform’s The Bold Type. Recently, Floyd landed a role on Inventing Anna where she played the character Neff, a concierge at the NYC hotel 11 Howard.

Season 19 of Grey’s Anatomy kicks off Thursday, Oct. 6 at 9/8c on ABC.
