Grey’s Anatomy star Giacomo Gianniotti will be making his directorial debut when season 17 returns this Spring.
The 31-year-old actor – who plays Dr. Andrew DeLuca on the hit medical drama – shared the exciting news with fans on his first day in charge of ABC show’s set.
Sharing a snap of the front page of the script, he revealed that the episode will be titled ‘Sorry Doesn’t Always Make It Right’.
In an emotional post, he opened up about how he is getting to live his dream as he wrote: ‘It was 2006. I remember it like yesterday. 17 years young. I was in High School. Grade 11 at Cardinal Carter Academy for the Arts in Toronto, Canada.
‘The boys and I would roll to the Sheppard centre for lunch with our collared polo shirts and lose ties with a pack of dumos triple folded in the sleeve. Id usually grab a slice of pizza from Casa Mana with a brio or maybe a blue jones soda from the news stand if I was feeling fancy.’
He continued: ‘The boys and I would play briscola in teams, all with our secret signals. And the girls would watch, chew bubble gum and gossip about the latest steamy hookup on Greys Anatomy.
‘They wouldn’t shut up about it… Graduation was on the horizon and I had high hopes for breaking into Show business… well, just theatre really…’
The delighted actor then continued: ‘If you woulda told me then, that 15 years later i’d be sitting here. In this position, at this age. Living out my dreams, doing what I love every day. I woulda told you, you were nuts 🥜.
‘Time sure does fly when you’re having fun. Here’s to another 15. Who knows where I’ll be standing then.’
He then thanked all who made it possible as he concluded: ‘Thanks to Julie Wong for a great script, my wise sage of a mentor in @therealdebbieallen and everyone at @greysabc that I love so dearly. You guys are family.
‘Aaaaaaaaaaaaand ACTION! 🎬.’
Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19 return to ABC on March 11.
