Unfortunately, I’ve just heard that one of Grey’s Anatomy’s most annoying reoccurring characters has been promoted to a series regular. Why would they do that?
Dr April Kepner (actress Sarah Drew) is whiny, relatively unattractive and a pretty useless doctor. Considering the cast is a little oversaturated anyway, I don’t understand why they’ve squeezed in this non-entity to give her more airtime than the series’ favs.
According to the actress, Dr April Kepner’s character is interesting because she “stirs stuff up between Meredith and Derek.” Errrr…..no she doesn’t. Derek would never stray, he barely notices her, and Meredith isn’t the slightest bit jealous.
Tell me I wasn’t the only one wishing the gun-man shot her down at the end of last season! I don’t think anyone would have noticed if she didn’t come back. Instead, her stupidity caused McDreamy to take a bullet to the heart. Idiot!
On the plus side, Dr Jackson Avery played by Jesse Williams, has also been promoted to a cast regular. I’m so fickle – I’m sure half the reason I choose to accept this newbie is because he looks like this.
I’m going to call him Mc Stud Muffin.
