Dr. Maggie Pierce will be sticking around Grey Sloan Memorial


Four episodes into Grey's Anatomy's 11th season, the ABC medical drama has promoted Kelly McCreary to series regular, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
See more The Couples of Shondaland: 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'Private Practice,' 'Scandal'

McCreary has been recurring since the season 10 finale as Dr. Maggie Pierce — Meredith's half-sister and the love child of Ellis and Richard (James Pickens Jr.).

The bulk of the first half of season 11 has focused on Maggie's journey from Boston to Seattle on a quest to learn more about her biological mother. The result has been meeting her biological father and testy half-sister, Meredith (Ellen Pompeo), who most recently came to accept Maggie as family.

"I really love playing Maggie, I think she's so much fun. I've been given some really great material and I'm really enjoying exploring her relationships," McCreary told THR during a visit to the Grey's set this week. "There's a lot to play out. I would like to see her stay as long as it takes for all of those relationships to run their course; whether it's another couple episodes or seasons, it's in the hands of the writers and I trust them completely."

As for her biggest burning question about Maggie — about whom the audience still knows very little — McCreary says she wants to know "if she is going to date anyone, just like anyone else!" "I don't think there's anybody in the hospital who's really her person or partner; they'd have to bring somebody in from outside!"

Repped by Soffer/Namoff Entertainment, the Kohner Agency and Stewart Talent, McCreary's credits include two episodes of Shonda Rhimes' Scandal, The CW's Emily Owens, M.D., and White Collar.

McCreary becomes Grey's Anatomy's latest series regular, joining Private Practice alum Caterina Scorsone on the ABC medical drama.

Thank you for this thread!

Love Maggie - professional,yet compassionate and sensitive!!!
Hope she and Richard find a way to build a bridge for their new relationship.

Hopefully,some fallling in love for her on the distant horizon,too. Who will it be? I´ve seen the actress Kelly McCreary herself speculating in an interview they would have to bring someone from the outside as she doesn´t think there isn´t anyone in the hospital who is really be her person and partner.Interesting...

Oh girl, unfortunately must confess that I am a denial in fanart, which makes the topics of the characters/performers, so beautiful.

If someone wants increase the topic with those beautiful pictures and quotes to Maggie, can count on me to the list also.

Hoping, hoping they will give Owen and Maggie a chance, they would make an interesting interracial couple, very captivating personalities, and Owen needs peace more than anything now. Maggie is such a person who can give him that, I can´t stand the media hyped Owen/Amelia pairing and writers allusions to it in 1108, Amelia as a recovering drug addict fighting her own demons would only drag Owen down a neverending spiral into darkness again. He needs light and peace.


I only hope what we saw in 1108 does not directly point to any romantic Owen/Amelia pairing.Otherwise I would think a/writers totally trash Owen/Cristina and their six-year long relationship by throwing Amelia onto Owen and b/ frankly speaking are they so uncreative in writers´ room to serve us a pairing hyped by the media?Why don´t they surprise us by who the woman will be that Owen falls in love with, not this evident pairing of two people fighting their own demons, uncreative, lazy writing is what it would be,bla,bla,bla.

I personally find Owen/Maggie scenes from 1102 very very appealing, there are layers in between, but writers have to give them one on one scenes.
Also why does he call Amelia by her first name out of nowhere in 1107 and Maggie told him already in 1024 to call her Maggie yet he still calls her Dr Pierce in 1108. Why????


The question that really bugs me is whether Owen knows who Maggie is?Does he know at all that she is Richard´s and Ellis´s daughter? Does he or does he not?

Plus we need to know more about Maggie personally, has she ever been in love? What´s her history relationshipwise? Does she want to fall in love again? To me she seems like a shy person.

Maggie and Owen? That's all I can say... no way.

I think she and Stephanie would make a good couple. Stephanie has literally nothing to do other than interfere with Japril's relationship, so maybe she'll decide she's done with men and swing the other way (wouldn't be the first character to swing the other direction). I've only seen Kelly play a lesbian, so I can't see her as a straight character, period.

Kevin has more chemistry with Caterina than Kelly, IMO. All I got was a boss vibe from Owen/Maggie. I felt something more with Owen/Amelia. Owen and Amelia actually make sense, from a creative stand point, whether you're the writer or not. It's not lazy writing at all. I started shipping them before Amelia even came back to Grey's, to be honest, long before the media hype. I started shipping them in 10x14 after Owen's break up with Emma. If you listen to the speech closely, Amelia fits all the characteristics Owen wants in a woman. Heck, the only reason I think the media started asking about Owen and Amelia is because I swarmed Natalie and Lesley with questions. So you can thank me for that. Kevin answered my question on the Shondaland podcast. Heck, maybe it was I who gave Shonda the idea.

How would Amelia drag Owen down? Seriously? She's a recovering addict, key being recovering. She's been sober for a while now. Owen has plenty of his own demons. Those two can only help each other whether it be as friends or as lovers.

Anyway, this is the Maggie thread, so like I said, I can only see Maggie with women. Maybe she and Arizona should have a fling, but I'd say no to that mainly because any person Arizona is with is going to get thrown the curb when Arizona gets back together with Callie so I wouldn't wish that upon anyone who's going to be sticking around awhile. Besides, Maggie and Owen likely would never work, because Maggie is like Ellis and Cristina. Her careers seems to be her number one focus. She doesn't strike me as the type of woman who wants to settle down, get married, and have kids. She hasn't been clear about that, but I don't think she's that type of person. She's a Cardio god like Cristina, and we've yet to have a Cardio surgeon who doesn't put work first before everything else. Amelia, on the other hand, blatantly said in 10x21 that she wants a family, she's just scared. She said she wanted lots of kids at the end of Private Practice. She's just scared, especially after losing her baby. Owen can help her through that though.

I kinda like her. I think Meredith needed another lost and found sister. Haha. Makes the show more entertaining.

I like Maggie. Seems shy but shows she does have a confidence behind her when she needs it.
Don't think Maggie and Owen would be a good relationship. Completely different characters plus it would seem as if Owen always went for the cardio surgeons - Teddy/Cristina/Maggie??
If Maggie goes lesbian (as we don't actually know anything about her past so who knows?) I think Callie deserves someone not to cheat on her as Maggie doesn't seem the type to..

To be fair, Owen and Teddy were never really an item. Teddy liked Owen, Owen didn't like Teddy 'like that'. He friend zoned her. [Personally, I always preferred Teddy/Owen over Cristina/Owen. More chemistry between the actors).

Like I said, I wouldn't wish anyone who's sticking around to get mixed up in the Calzona fiasco. They made a point to reiterate that Callie is bi, so I can see her sleeping with a man who's not a regular, ie a random guest star.

Still rooting for Maggie/Steph aka Staggie.
