Who Is Mark’s New Love Interest on Grey’s Anatomy Season 8?

As everyone who saw Grey's Anatomy Season 8, Episode 7, "Put Me In, Coach" knows, Mark Sloan (Eric Dane) has a new love interest. But we didn't get to see much of this new lady love in the episode — aside from the fact she gets beaned in the boob with a baseball. What's her deal?

As Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw) helpfully informed us, the character's name is Julia, and she is a ophthalmologist at Seattle Presbyterian. According to Calzona the two have spent a number of nights together, and she will become a reoccurring character, so you can count on Julia being more than a one-off fling.

Julia is played by Holley Fain, who you may recognize from Gossip Girl, where she played Trip van der Bilt's manipulative wife, Maureen. Hopefully she'll be a little less scheming and terrible on Grey's Anatomy — thought we have a feeling Lexie (Chyler Leigh) won't warm up to her even if she turns out to be a saint.
