…wish to meet the cast of Grey’s Anatomy


“ The trip was everything she could have dreamed of. I’m so happy she was able to do it and it is one of our favorite memories. ”

- Kayla's Mom

Kayla wished to meet the cast of Grey’s Anatomy. Before she arrived to the studio she was taken on a tour through Hollywood in a limousine to see some iconic landmarks, like the Walk of Fame, the Dolby Theatre, the Jimmy Kimmel Theatre, the Capitol Records building, and the Hollywood sign. She was then taken to The Prospect Studios in Hollywood where Grey’s has been filmed for the past 14 years.

Kayla was given a tour of the studio by an associate producer. She got to see the ambulance entrance, the ER, the ORs, and was taken to the props department. While she was exploring the ambulance entrance Jim Pickets (Dr. Richard Weber), came to meet Kayla. In the props department, she learned how they create realistic needles and scalpels for the show, she even received a goodie bag with props from the show. As she was being shown the fake body parts, her favorite character, Alex Karev, who is played by Justin Chambers, presented her with a personalized Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital ID card. Kayla’s dad, who works in a hospital, was impressed with how realistic all the props and sets were.

Kayla then watched the cast rehearse a scene and met many of the cast members, including: Ellen Pompeo (Dr. Meredith Grey), Chandra Wilson (Dr. Miranda Bailey), Camilla Luddington (Dr. Jo Wilson), and Martin Henderson (Dr. Nathan Riggs). At the end of her visit, Kayla was surprised with a set of embroidered Grey Memorial scrubs.

The trip was “everything she could have dreamed of,” said Kayla’s mom, “I’m so happy she was able to do it and it is one of our favorite memories.”
