An upcoming episode of Grey’s Anatomy is going to tackle the subject of sexual assault, and Wetpaint Entertainment has learned that the episode’s victim will be played by Vanessa Marano.

“I play someone who was a victim of kidnapping,” says Marano, who starts production on Grey’s Anatomy Season 8, Episode 20 this week. “It’s pretty intense. It’s kind of a crazy episode.”

Marano is currently starring on ABC Family’s Switched at Birth as Bay, one of two teenage girls who was accidentally given to the wrong family as an infant. She’s previously appeared on Gilmore Girls, Without a Trace, and on Dexter as the daughter of the serial killer played by John Lithgow.
