Soap Opera Veteran Gina Gallego Signs On To Grey’s Anatomy
Gina Gallego has been cast on Grey’s Anatomy, and due to the role she’s playing, it seems that something big is going down on Grey’s in the near future!
The soap opera veteran has signed on to play the role of Dr. Callie Torres’s [played by Sara Ramirez] mother. Making her debut on May 5th, Gellego’s character will be Lucia Torres, the wife of Callie’s father, Carlos. Hector Elizondo will also appear in the episode to fill the role of Carlos.
Lucia and Carlos are coming to Seattle at the same time Callie’s girlfriend, Arizona (Jessica Capshaw), welcomes her parents, Barbara (Judith Ivey) and Colonel Robbins (Denis Arndt). But for what? A meeting of the parents? A wedding announcement?
Gina, 55, is best known for her recurring roles on numerous daytime soap operas. Her credits include Santa Barbara, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of Our Lives [where she just recently played a prison warden].
Don’t miss the coming episodes of Grey’s Anatomy, which almost certainly holds the answer to the question on fans’ minds: what event/announcement will provoke the couple’s parents to come to town at the same time?
