Press Release: Casting
I really always hate recasting. But I love Abigail Spencer and adore her work on Timeless. I’ll put my preconceived recasting thoughts to the wayside. I’m excited to see her on one of my favorite shows.
Giacomo Gianniotti revealed that in the 14th season of ABC’s hit medical drama, viewers will be introduced to DeLuca’s sister, who will be walking the halls of Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.
“We are bringing my sister [in] as a new character. She is going to be a new presence at the hospital. She comes from Italy, as my character is Italian, and you get to see us exchanging some blows in Italian, which will be very interesting,”Gianniotti told ET, who has played DeLuca since season 11, at the Disney/ABC cocktail party at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday.
“Her profession, although we can’t disclose it, is a very interesting one,” he hinted. “It’s going to keep a lot of the doctors on their toes, make some doctors uncomfortable [and] some people will be glad about [her coming on]. She’ll stir things up with a European background and take on medicine.”Source:
EW has learned exclusively that Italian actress Stefania Spampinato has booked a multi-episode arc as the sister of Giacomo Gianniotti’s Andrew DeLuca.
Carina DeLuca will actually take up residence as a new doc at Grey Sloan, which becomes a bit of a nightmare situation of Andrew. “This year, we’re going to definitely have DeLuca’s character a little more fleshed out with the arrival of his sister from Italy,” Gianniotti tells EW. “We’re going to see a new dynamic in the hospital as his sister arrives, and it’s not exactly good news; he’s frustrated by it.”
“She has a very interesting and controversial — some would say — profession within the medical field, which makes him uncomfortable,” Gianniotti continues. “It’s a thorn in his side, her being there, but everybody else is quite fond of her. She will be working [at the hospital], and she’s going to help tell the story of DeLuca and how he comes from Italy. They’re going to speak a little bit of Italian, which will be nice for the Italian fans, because [the show’s] so big in Italy.”Source:
