We know that Amelia Shepherd is sticking around in Seattle — with Caterina Scorsone joining the Grey’s Anatomy cast full-time in Season 11 — and now we’re learning that she immediately gets swept up in Grey Sloan Memorial drama!
As you can see we have three new gorgeous layouts up on the main site, photo gallery and media archive. All three are made by my dear friend Claudia at Never Enough Design. She has done an amazing job and Caterina looks so stunning in this shoot! Please take a look at them and sound off in the comments your thoughts.
I appologise for my long absence from the site. I have been going through alot of changes in my personal life and running my sites was the last thing on my mind. I won’t make any promises as to when the site will be back up-to-date but know that is my ultimate wish and plan.
In the meantime, our previous host shut doors and we have now moved to our new home at Flaunt. A huge thank-you to them as they made the transfer progress so seamless and I didn’t have to lift a finger and with my slow internet that was gratefully appreciated.
Please watch this space for when the updates resumes.
Shonda Rhimes tells Entertainment Weekly that Amelia gets very personal with one character when she overhears a revealing confession.
“There’s a moment early on when she finds herself the keeper of some secrets that Richard (James Pickens Jr.) didn’t necessarily want her to know by being at an AA meeting that he didn’t know she was at,” Shonda says. “It draws her into the world in a deeper way than she anticipated.”
(Can we all just agree that that secret is Maggie-sized? And shouldn’t Amelia have alerted Richard to her presence at the meeting?)
The Grey’s mastermind also tells EW that Amelia’s status at the hospital is riding on whether Derek (Patrick Dempsey) will move to D.C. or stay in Seattle, teasing that “frustrating complications” will result.
We can just imagine it: “Hey, bro, I just got here. Why don’t you stay awhile?” Or, conversely, “Hey, bro, get outta here. I’m the Dr. Shepherd now.”
Grey’s Anatomy Season 11 premieres Thursday, September 25, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
The upcoming Pierce Brosnan action film The November Man doesn’t even hit theaters until August 27th, but Relativity Media has already announced that they’re working on a sequel. Brosnan will reprise his role as Peter Devereaux, “The November Man,” a lethal and highly trained ex-CIA agent who’s lured out of retirement. The film is based on a 13-part book series by Bill Granger, so there should be plenty of stories to tell in the new espionage franchise, if it proves successful.
Robbie Banner, president of production at Relativity, commented on the sequel by saying: “The November Man is a gritty series that re-invents the spy genre with its master Pierce Brosnan by combining the best elements of James Bond and Jason Bourne while echoing the cool, sleek action movies of the 70s. We are excited to launch The November Man later this month and to continue to explore Peter Devereaux’s dangerous world with Pierce over the years to come.”
We’ll have more news about The November Man sequel as it becomes available. In the meantime, check out the plot synopsis for the first installment below, and watch the trailer here.
The November Man is set for release on August 27th in the States, with a cast that also includes Eliza Taylor (The 100), Caterina Scorsone (Private Practice), Bill Smitrovich (Iron Man) and Will Patton (Falling Skies).
Will Owen start to move on and get a new love interest?
Rhimes: I don’t know yet. We’re feeling that out. That;’s an instinctive thing for me. Does it feel right yet? Does it feel good? Do we feel OK about that? Or does it feel icky? And I don’t know yet.
What about Amelia and Owen?
Rhimes: I know, right? Because somehow that feels exciting. I’ve had that thought and I don’t know yet. I’m not interested in pushing that because I don’t know yet. I think they have interesting personalities and I think they have interesting pains that one another could possibly solve.
With Amelia coming in full-time, will you be able to tell more Shepherd family stories and finally introduce the elusive fourth sister?
Rhimes: The fourth sister! I love that we slowly deploy Shepherd sisters and Grey sisters. Obviously we love Tyne Daly [who played their mother]. Having Tyne Daly on the show is always a dream. It’s an expensive dream, but it’s a dream. If it’s possible for us, we’d love to do it. My dream episode is where Derek has to go home and deal with all his sisters at once and his mother. That would be an amazing episode. But that’s my budget for the year. Maybe one day, hopefully.
Grey’s Anatomy may have shocked fans with another half-sister twist, but we actually should’ve seen it coming all along!
In the season finale, the new head of cardio Margaret Pierce (Kelly McCreary) was revealed to be the half-sister of Meredith (Ellen Pompeo), whom their mother Ellis Grey (Kate Burton) gave up for adoption. Her father? Dr. Webber (James Pickens Jr)!
How will Meredith react to this new revelation, especially in the wake of Cristina (Sandra Oh) leaving? TVGuide.com sat down with showrunner Shonda Rhimes to discuss the upcoming season, including the state of Meredith and Derek’s (Patrick Dempsey) marriage after her sudden decision to stay in Seattle, how Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) will change the dynamic and how Alex (Justin Chambers) becoming a board member will shake up the hospital.
Will there be a time jump when Grey’s returns?
Shonda Rhimes: No. We’re not going to time jump.
Introducing Maggie on the show is different from the other half-sisters because it also affects Richard. How will this change the hospital dynamic and how will you handle explaining how Ellis Grey was able to hide this pregnancy?
Rhimes: What’s interesting for us is that Maggie has been a piece of story that we have had and known about since Season 4 — well, honestly since the beginning. That was one of the original pieces of story since the beginning with the Richard-Ellis dynamic, but it’s been a piece of story since Season 4 when we talked about introducing her. We were going, “When’s the right time?!” and we were holding it forever. I kept going, “Not this season, it’s not right.” After a while, I was like, “We’re never going to introduce it. The show is going to end without it.” Every time I thought the show was going to end, I was like, “Ah!” Then we hit this moment in time and I remember walking into the writers’ room and going, “You guys, it’s time.” And all the writers knew exactly what I was talking about. It’s going to be interesting to see how it plays out. Because we’ve all known about it for so long, it’s always been layered it. It’s not a thing where we’re going in and backdating. It’s literally always been layered into the story line. We can literally go back and pull out moments of the show and I’m excited to do so, and point out where it was talked about. It’s not going to be so hard to do.
I so knew this was coming but either way *happy dance*
When paging Dr. Shepherd at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, you’re going to have to be a bit more specific! Caterina Scorsone has been promoted to series regular on Grey’s Anatomy, E! News has confirmed. Scorsone, who played Derek’s sister (Patrick Dempsey) Amelia Shepherd on Grey’s spinoff Private Practice, will stick around the ABC drama for its upcoming season 11.
Scorsone spent more than 60 episodes on Private Practice and has appeared in half a dozen as a guest star on Grey’s Anatomy. Her other TV roles include 1-800-Missing, Crash and Goosebumps.
Grey’s Anatomy recently said goodbye to Sandra Oh, who had been with the show since the beginning. Additionally, Tessa Ferrer and Gaius Charles will not return as series regulars for season 11.
In January, Grey’s Anatomy stars Ellen Pompeo and Dempsey both signed new contracts keeping them with the series through season 12. ABC renewed the long-running medical drama for a season 11 in May and in January, ABC’s president, Paul Lee, indicated the doctors of Grey’s will remain on call for “many years to come.”
For the 2014 season, ABC has moved Grey’s Anatomy to 8 p.m. with Scandal at 9 p.m. and Shonda Rhimes‘ new series, How to Get Away With Murder, at 10 p.m. on Thursdays.
“She’s stuck in a position that a lot of women wrestle with when considering marriage and kids,” the actress tells THR.
Instead, the younger Shepherd learns that caring for two small children and a home is a bit overwhelming. So what’s ahead for Amelia following her stark realization that she may not be cut out to be a wife and mother? The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Scorsone to discuss what’s ahead for Amelia as well as what’s going on at Seaside Wellness (RIP, Private Practice) and more.
Amelia is back in Seattle — and overwhelmed. Where does she go from here?
In the foreseeable future, which is until the end of the season, she’s interacting with Derek and Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and living at the Dream House for a little while. In the next episode, Derek taps her to be his co-surgeon on a complicated neurology case that involves conjoined twins. There are two brains and you need two neurosurgeons with perfect, perfect Shepherd hair (laughs). He calls Amelia in and she’s at Grey Sloan Memorial with privileges.
James (Matt Long) has proposed to her and she’s testing what family life may be like. Is that really why she’s in Seattle? Might we see him at some point?
I don’t know what will happen down the road. She is in Seattle in a very complicated situation. She fled to go visit the babies and get to know [baby] Bailey and visit Zola but she’s in full freak out mode right now. She went from very tragic circumstances before meeting James to this whirlwind romance and not that long after a proposal with this guy who, in contrast to Amelia — as he said on Private Practice –the worst thing that happened to him was having to put his Golden Retriever down. They definitely have very different histories and suddenly she’s in a position where she’s got to figure out if she’s going to be able to be a wife and mother for this guy — and if she’s ready for that while balancing her career as a neurosurgeon when that is an area that gives her so much identity and so much sanity post-addiction. She’s in Seattle fully freaking out and not sure who she is or what she needs to do to be a functional human in society. She’s not sure if marrying James is the answer or if she should dive more fully into her career. She’s stuck in a position that a lot of women wrestle with when considering marriage and kids.
While it’s only been a little over a year since Private Practice went off the air, having this doctor back on Grey’s Anatomy Season 10 Episode 21 was a welcome sight.
And while last night’s installment had her contending with the Shepherd children, don’t worry: Amelia is headed back to the OR next Thursday.
Indeed, Caterina Scorsone – who has been busy with real-life motherhood in the time away from Shondaland – has returned. And the actress talked to me earlier this week about how it’s been stepping back into Amelia’s shoes, as well as what we can expect on next week’s nail-biting episode involving conjoined twins with her on-screen brother, played by Patrick Dempsey.
Of course, I also had to ask if series Shonda Rhimes has asked her to return as a regular and whether she’d be up for it if so…
TV Fanatic: First of all, how’s motherhood?
Caterina Scorsone: It’s been wonderful. It’s been so, so much more miraculous than I even could have imagined! Everyone tells you that it’s the best thing ever and then you have this child and it’s so much better than you could ever have possibly even conceived of before. For me, anyway. Everyone has their own experience.
