After the tragic departure of several actors at the end of the sixth season, the cast of GREY’S ANATOMY will be adding a new doctor when the seventh season starts. Mercy actor James Tupper has signed on to a recurring role on the series.

Tupper will play the role of Dr. Andrew Perkins, a trauma counselor who arrives at Seattle Grace to help the staff deal with the ghosts of last season’s bloodbath during the finale. Tupper’s character is currently slated to appear in at least two episodes next season. Grey’s Anatomy returns to ABC on September 23 with its seventh season premiere episode entitled “With You I’m Born Again.”

Tupper has also appeared as Jack Slattery on the ABC series MEN IN TREES.
