5 Things to Know About Grey’s Anatomy Star Jessica Capshaw

You love Jessica Capshaw from her role on Grey's Anatomy. But how much do you know about the woman behind Arizona Robbins?

While we might not have much to teach the most devoted Jessica fans, for those of you who haven't yet memorized her biography, here are five interesting facts about the actress.

1. She's Steven Spielberg's stepdaughter. Jessica's parents divorced when she was three, and her mother, actress Kate Capshaw, married Spielberg when Jessica was 15. She was a production intern on Spielberg’s classic film Schindler's List.

2. She has an Ivy League education. Before diving into acting, Jessica graduated from Brown University with a degree in English.

3. She has a ton of siblings! Between her mom, her dad, and her stepdad, she has 10 siblings — some biological, some adopted.

4. She has a lot of acting connections to Grey's. Before she was on Grey's, Jessica starred in the horror film Valentine alongside Grey's original Katherine Heigl. Then she went on to the TV show The Practice, which also featured Chyler Leigh and James Pickens Jr. Clearly, she was destined to be on Grey's Anatomy!

5. She was REALLY excited to get the Grey's job. When she found out she was going to be a series regular on Grey's, Jessica "screamed a lot. I was driving, it was dangerous." We're glad she was okay!

Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
