‘Grey’s Anatomy’ recruits actress Candis Cayne for trans plotline

January 31, 2018

“Grey’s Anatomy” will continue to highlight transgender stories this season with the addition of actress Candis Cayne in a multi-episode role.

Cayne, an alum of “Transparent,” will play a patient admitted to the fictional Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital for a “groundbreaking” vaginoplasty surgery, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Cayne’s character was inspired by the real-life story of a trans woman who helped the director of surgery at the Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery at Mount Sinai create a new method for her reassignment procedure.

“(The surgery) revolutionizes the making of a vagina and we thought that was a really cool story and Candis is playing a character inspired by something we read,” “Grey’s” showrunner Krista Vernoff told THR.

Cayne’s storyline is the second trans-inspired narrative to air on the ABC show this season. Earlier this month, trans actor Alex Blue Davis — who plays a transgender male intern, Dr. Casey Parker — had a moment on the show when he revealed to his boss that he was a “proud trans man.”

“I cried at the table read, it was very moving for me,” Davis said to THR. “I’ve been waiting for a moment like this on TV my whole life. I am so honored I got to say that line on TV because it’s a long time coming.”

“Grey’s Anatomy” airs Thursdays on ABC at 8 p.m.
