Los Angeles: Actor Martin Henderson is joining the cast of ‘Grey's Anatomy’ following Patrick Dempsey's departure from his role of Derek ‘Dr McDreamy’ Shepherd on the long-running ABC drama earlier this year.

Showrunner Shonda Rhimes shocked fans in April when she killed off Dempsey's character after 10 years on ‘Grey's Anatomy’. There were widespread rumours as to the reason for the untimely exit of the star, but a new male lead was not cast until this week, reported Us magazine.

New Zealand native Anderson, 40, comes to the medical series after stints on Australia's ‘Secrets & Lies’ and Sundance TV's The ‘Red Road’. The actor played Darcy in Gurinder Chadha’s ‘Bride and Prejudice’.

His on-boarding at Grey-Sloan Memorial Hospital follows not only the death of McDreamy, but also that of Mark ‘Dr. McSteamy’ Sloan (Eric Dane), who was killed off in 2012's ninth season of ‘Grey's’.

The Ellen Pompeo-starring show is going through a bit of a cast shake-up as longtime star Sandra Oh, who plays Cristina Yang, exited last season, and the new crop of attendings have become more of a focus.

Henderson is hyped to play a new surgeon on ‘Grey's Anatomy’, potentially taking over Dr Shepherd's schedule of brain surgeries.

The ‘Ring’ star previously worked with ABC gem Rhimes on the network's short-lived drama ‘Off the Map’, which ShondaLand produced.

Dempsey, 49, is learning what life is like after Rhimes, busying himself as of late with car races and eyeing his next move.

The ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ actor was mourned by fans after his unexpected departure, which costar James Pickens Jr (Dr Richard Webber) said even came as a shock to the cast.
