'Different World' Star Jasmine Guy Returns to 'Grey's Anatomy' Season 16 in Recurring Role: Report

Fans of Jasmine Guy can expect to see more of the actress on "Grey's Anatomy," as she's been given the go signal to become a recurring character for season 16. 

Towards the end of its 15th season, Jasmine Guy was a guest star on the hit show. Impressed with her performance and seeing her significance on the show, ABC has decided to cast her as one of the key recurring roles alongside James Pickens Jr. on the show's upcoming season.

Jasmine Guy's "Grey's Anatomy" Character

On the show, Guy plays Gemma, a woman who appeared at the Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital emergency room after having a freak accident. There, she encountered Dr. Richard Webber, a problematic part of her past. 

Now, the storyline between the two characters are set to develop in the upcoming season, and fans can't wait for it to unfold and see how it affects the entire story. 

"Grey's Anatomy" season 16 will continue to star Ellen Pompeo as Meredith Grey, Justin Chambers as Alex Karev, Chandra Wilson as Miranda Bailey, Kevin McKidd as Owen Hunt, Jesse Williams as Jackson Avery, Caterina Scorsone as Amelia Shepherd, Camilla Luddington as Jo Wilson, Kelly McCreary as Maggie Pierce, Kim Raver as Teddy Altman and Giacomo Gianniotti as Andrew DeLuca.

Jasmine Guy's Prodigy

In the Guy family, it's not just Jasmine with a knack for acting, as her daughter, Imani Guy Duckett, is set to follow in her footsteps. The 20-year-old currently studies at the NYU Tisch School of the Arts, focusing on in-school plays rather than those open to the public. 

Fans can expect to see more of her once she graduates, though, especially since she's already had experience doing theater shows. When she was 17-years-old, she performed on the set of "Serial Black Face," which revolves around the notorious 1979 Atlanta Child Murders.

It will be a sight to see when Imani finishes her studies, and one day hopefully act alongside her mom on a TV or theater show.
