Martin Henderson Joins Grey’s Anatomy

New Zealand actor Martin Henderson has been cast as the new dreamboat doctor on Grey’s Anatomy, which is heading into its 12th season, to fill the void left by Patrick Dempsey’s departure in season eleven.

After fans’ protests following Dempsey’s departure Rhimes said in a statement: “The possibilities for what may come are endless. As Ellis Grey would say: The carousel never stops turning.”

“Martin already has experience playing a dreamy, life-saving doctor, as he starred in the short-lived 2011 ABC series Off the Map, executive produced by Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda (Rhimes)”, according to Kayla Caldwell for Daily Mail.

In addition to recruiting Henderson, Jason George has been promoted to series regular for season 12.

Martin Henderson is a New Zealand actor, who starred in the original Australian series Secrets & Lies, New Zealand hospital drama Shortland Street and Sundance Channel’s The Red Road.
