Grey’s Anatomy Season 14 To Show More Of Owen’s Sister But With A New Look
According to a couple of reports out there, we’re about to see a lot more of Owen’s sister Megan Hunt in the upcoming season 14! However, she will look quite different from the Megan that we saw in a couple of the season 13 flashbacks.
The reason for this is because the actress who played her Bridget Regan will not be able to continue the role due to some scheduling conflicts. She’s currently a series regular on TNT’s “The Last Ship.” So, that’s got her all tied up.
Instead, we’re going to see current NBC “Timeless” actress Abigail Spencer (above right) fill the role. According to TV Line, Timeless isn’t scheduled to start filming until November 2017 so that gave her a little extra time to jump in and tackle this Megan Hunt role. According to what we were shown in the season 13 flashbacks, Megan Hunt’s character was presumed to be dead. However, during the finale episode, we learned that she is indeed still alive.
The flashbacks also showed that she served in the Army and was romantically linked to Owen’s best friend Nathan. Eventually, she found out that Nathan cheated on her. This prompted her to take off in a helicopter that went missing and that’s why she was presumed to be dead. During the season 13 finale, Nathan raced to join Owen and Amelia to greet Megan’s arrival by chopper. She was seen for a brief period of time in the finale.
It’s believed that Megan’s presence on the show could possibly cause some tensions with Nathan since he’s currently working on trying to establish a romantic relationship with Meredith. However, it’s just speculation right now. No official plotlines have been revealed yet by ABC. We’re still waiting on that first premiere episode synopsis press release from them.
Bridget Regan recently tweeted a kind, supporting message for Abigail Spencer in regards to taking over the Megan Hunt role. She wrote, “Thanks for all the love guys! @abigailspencer is an incredible actor, tip top lady and will be a BRILLIANT Megan on GreysAnatomy.”
Abigail’s acting resume includes roles in: Mad Men, Hawthorne, Suits, Rectify, True Detective, How I Met Your Mother, Oz The Great and Powerful, Castle, Private Practice and many more. She’s definitely had a very busy career. So, welcome her aboard! The Megan Hunt role is currently a guest role so we’ll probably just see her from time to time.
As previously reported, actor Matthew Morrison is returning to play Jo’s messed up ex-husband Paul. Actress Kim Raven is returning to reprise her role as Dr. Teddy Altman. The fans went wild when that news came out a few months ago. Characters that will not be returning are Arizona’s girlfriend Eliza Minnick and Stephanie Edwards.
Season 14 is currently set to premiere on Thursday night, September 28,2017 at 7 pm central standard time on ABC. Stay tuned. Also, be sure to follow us on our Grey’s Anatomy Facebook page for more Grey’s Anatomy news by Clicking Here.
