Sarah Drew Gets 'Grey's Anatomy' Promotion

Sarah Drew - Getty ImagesThe cast of 'Grey's Anatomy' is starting to resemble the mythical many-headed Hydra; ditch two actors, two more will spring up to take their place.

Though the ABC drama lost original castmembers T.R. Knight and Katherine Heigl this season, the Ausiello Files reports that Sarah Drew has just been promoted to series regular for next year.

An 'Everwood' alum, Drew joined the cast at the beginning of season six (along with many others) as a result of the Seattle Grace-Mercy West merger, although fans have been less than welcoming of her neurotic, McDreamy-lovin' character April, who was fired and rehired over the course of last season as a scapegoat for a surgery gone wrong.
The news of Drew's beefed up role comes just 48 hours after ABC announced the promotion of Drew's co-star and fellow-Mercy West holdover Jesse Williams, who will also star as a series regular in season 7.

A former model (with very nice eyes, right?) Williams plays Dr. Jackson Avery, who has enjoyed a slightly warmer reception than April among fans. But now that the Mercy Westers have full-time contracts, expect show creator Shonda Rhimes to work her character magic to turn the pair into our new favorite Seattle residents -- hey, it worked for Lexie Grey (Chyler Leigh).

The seventh season of 'Grey's Anatomy' will premiere this September on ABC; will you be watching?

Not impressed with April. (Sarah Drew) They should drop her. I barely know who she is on the show!

They're kidding, right? This actress (AND HER CHARACTER) are downright agitating. I wished so much that shooter in the finale popped her one. Now we'll have to endure her endless whining and copping out of tough situations. Ugh!!!

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who absolutely cannot stand this character!! I was also hoping she would be one of the victims of the shooter and be off the show. Now she's a regular? Ugh... big mistake in my opinion.

I agree. This is one TV show that I just can not watch. In fact when it is on (my wife and daughter just love it) I have to leave the room, as it makes me want to vomit. All the stupid drama, sex in the closets, and that annoying music that always cues up in the background. Please, please, please... someone cancel this fake hospital drama or at least move it to a women's cable channel!!

Oh why couldn't they have just shot her character?

April is NO Little Grey. I can't imagine how the writers are going to get us to care about April. All though, when she was telling the shooter about herself you knew right away it was something from Oprah.
