Sara Ramirez

Tony Award winner Sara Ramirez joins the cast as a regular of ABC's top-rated television drama, Grey's Anatomy, reprising her role as orthopedic surgeon Dr. Callie Torres.

Blessed with a rich and smoky voice, Ramirez graduated from the acclaimed Juilliard Drama School. Shortly after graduation, she made her Broadway debut starring as Wahzinak in Paul Simon's The Capeman. She followed that with a starring part in the Gershwins' Fascinating Rhythm, for which she received an Outer Critics Circle nomination for Best Actress. In 2001 she was in Broadway's A Class Act, a musical biography based on the life of Ed Kleban, in the role of Felicia. Off Broadway she has performed in The Vagina Monologues with Tovah Feldshuh and Suzanne Bertish.
