Emmy nominee Jennifer Bassey (ex-Marian, ALL MY CHILDREN) checks in to Seattle Grace tonight when her three-show arc begins on GREY’S ANATOMY in the episode titled “Sleeping Monster.” Bassey plays Nancy, a grandmother whose family is facing a medical crisis in the ABC primetime medical drama, which airs at 9 p.m. EST.
“Darling, I tell you, it all starts at the top — [creator/executive producer] Shonda Rhimes puts together the greatest group of people,” Bassey raves to Soaps In Depth of her GREY’S experience. “The writer is on the set as the show is being filmed. It’s all about the writing and the writers know the characters so well. They write for them beautifully. It’s a beautifully put together show!”
The actress warns that her fans may not recognize her immediately. “I wear not a stitch of makeup,” she reveals. “It’s a wonderful, wonderful group of people. Kevin McKidd (Owen) is just the sweetest man on the planet. I had the best time.”
