Teen queen Demi Lovato will be guest-starring on ‘Grey’s Anatomy‘ – a gig that she says represents one of her “biggest dreams” coming true.
Lovato first teased her ‘Grey’s’ visit on Sunday, telling her Twitter followers she’d be “getting up early tomorrow morning to begin a week of fulfilling one of my biggest dreams.”
The 17-year-old actress-singer added that she was “so excited… so blessed… so thankful” to be appearing on the ABC serial. “[It’s] a HUGE dream of mine.”
In an episode slated to air during May sweeps, Lovato will play a patient apparently suffering from schizophrenia. Tensions will run high as the Seattle Grace docs race to find a physical trigger to her illness – especially since the teen’s uncle killed himself at a young age in the midst of battling identical delusions.
Shortly after Lovato broke the news, ‘Grey’s’ boss Shonda Rhimes herself took to Twitter to weigh in on the starlet’s drop-by, saying, “Everyone’s super excited around here.”
Demi later shared a bit of McLove from the ‘Grey’s’ set, tweeting to her fans, “Mr. Patrick Dempsey himself wants me to give a shout out to you guys! Hahahaha.”
