"So hyped to be a part of such a historic series! Can’t wait to be covered in fake blood and bodily fluids on a daily basis 😂 tysm!"

According to Deadline, the actress will star as one of four new first-year surgical residents at Grey Sloan, in the upcoming 19th season of the show.


The publication reports, "Kane’s Jules Millin was raised by drug addled artist/hippies and somehow emerged as the only real grown-up in the family. Because she always had to take care of herself and her parents, she can be a little bossy – but her heart is always in the right place.

"She’s not afraid to break the rules to save a life, and sometimes it gets her in trouble."

"OMG! Yes! Love Grey's Anatomy, now I get to see you on it," a third wrote. "So happy for this news. Congrats!"

"Omggg now I actually have to catch up on years of Grey's that I've missed so I can watch you," someone else added.
