Derek Shepherd, prepare to get used to your having your sister around — she’ll be here for awhile. That’s right: Caterina Scorsone will be sticking around on Grey’s Anatomy for a few more episodes to play Derek’s (Patrick Dempsey) sis, and she’s not just crashing with Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek to figure out whether or not she can do the whole “having a family thing” now that she’s engaged. Nope, Amelia’s got some serious issues to work through.
“Amelia is not an uncomplicated character,” Caterina tells TV Line. “She’s endured enough traumas that she’ll be working it out for the rest of her life. So, I’m sure there’s plenty to plumb in the coming episodes.”
Sound familiar? Yep, that applies to just about every Grey’s character ever. And according to what Caterina tells The Hollywood Reporter, Amelia’s in “full freak-out mode.”
“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,” Caterina says. “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.”
And when it comes to Season 11, Caterina’s fingers are crossed that she’s asked back to become a more permanent part of the cast.
“There’s always a chance in Shondaland!” she says.
How do you think Amelia’s storyline will pan out? Will she be around for Season 11?
