Dr. Kim will be played by up-and-comer Alex Landi, who is slotted to appear in at least four episodes of the hit medical drama. He shared the exciting news in an Instagram video this week:
That hair. That face. That voice. OOF.
Some of Landi’s other credits include an appearance on the TV series Bull, as well as a role in the upcoming film Broken Land. In addition to acting, Landi is also a model and fitness guru.
Grey’s Anatomy has featured several LGBTQ characters in the past, including a lesbian pediatric surgeon Dr. Arizona Robbins (played by Jessica Capshaw) and a bisexual orthopedic surgeon Dr. Callie Torres (played by Sara Ramirez).
Last season, the show featured Candis Cayne, who played a trans patient seeking vaginoplasty surgery. The series also featured trans actor Alex Blue Davis, who played intern Casey Parker.
