Who is Grey's Anatomy star Scott Speedman?

BRITISH-CANADIAN actor Scott Speedman is returning to the cast of Grey’s Anatomy, the longest running series on ABC.

Speedman previously guest-starred in season 14 as the role of Dr. Nick Marsh and will now star in season 18 as a regular on the show.

Who is Scott Speedman?

Scott Speedman –  full name Robert Scott Speedman – was born in London, England to Scottish parents, but grew up in Toronto, Canada.

He aspired to be a swimmer, holding a record for the best distance freestyle, and placed ninth at the 1992 Olympic trials.

However, his swimming career came to an abrupt end when he suffered a neck injury at 16 years old and was forced to retire.

What is his role on Grey’s Anatomy?

Speedman reprised his role of Dr. Nick Marsh on the September 30th premiere of season 18 of Grey’s Anatomy, Deadline exclusively reported.

The former cast member plays the neurosurgeon who nearly died in season 14 from a life-threatening clot. Meredith Grey, played by Ellen Pompeo, discovered the clot and surgically removed it, ultimately saving his kidney.

He is now playing Grey’s love interest on the show, and fans are thrilled.

“Scott Speedman is back!!! Please TV gods let him be a permanent character,” posted one fan on Twitter.

Another fan said, “Thank you Grey’s Anatomy producers. We all Looooove sexy a** Scott Speedman as a love interest.”

How did Scott Speedman get into acting?

After his neck injury, Speedman switched his attention from swimming to acting. In 1995, Speedman made his Hollywood debut in an episode of the series Kung Fu: The Legend Continues, as well as a recurring role in Nancy Drew.

However, Speedman is now known for his role as Ben Covington in the television series Felicity, but he said initially he hadn’t been interested in the role until an agent gave him the script.

He sent in an audition tape, and within a few days later, he was asked to visit the set. “I got the job on the spot,” he said.

Since his role on Felicity, the 46-year-old has also starred in films including Dark Blue, Underworld, and The Strangers.
