‘Red Band Society’: Mandy Moore & Dave Annable Talk A New (Old) Romance
The Nov. 5 episode of Red Band Society features a new doctor in the house! Dr. Erin Grace is heading to the hospital and we’ve got all details on her character!
“I play Dr. Erin Grace, who has taken about a year’s sabbatical from the hospital,” Mandy told HollywoodLife.com and a group of reporters on set. “She used to work here [Ocean Park Hospital] and my character used to date Dr. McAndrew and they sort of broke up when she decided this year’s sabbatical to work for Doctors Without Borders.”
Uh oh. Will Dr. Erin’s reintroduction into Dr. McAndrew’s life make for a totally awkward work environment? Let’s hope not! But given their history, it’s totally possible.
Mandy teases that her character is definitely going to “shake things up a little bit” for Dr. McAndrew!
“So, now I’m back and I’ve somehow been given the Chief of Surgery job which is something he [McAndrew] was gunning for and potentially why he didn’t leave with me on this trip,” Mandy continued. “He was really focused on his career, so I think my character is a kind of device to shake things up a little bit and maybe introduce a little backstory into his character.”
Well, we’re always up for more romance with Dr. McAndrew! Seriously, these two make an adorably cute couple. Dave also added that just because Dr. Grace and Dr. McAndrew are broken up, it doesn’t mean they are done for good.
“They were together and I think that leaves them potentially a place to go in the series,” Dave said.
Red Band Society airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on FOX.
