Actress Vanessa Marano, star of the hit ABC Family show, Switched At Birth, has been cast to play a sexually assaulted victim on Grey’s Anatomy season 8 episode 20.

Earlier this week we learned an upcoming episode of the hit series will be tackling the very sensitive subject of sexual assault.  Refer to Grey’s Anatomy Spoilers: Sexual Assault To Be A Topic On Upcoming Episode; for more details.  We now have more information on the episode and the actress casted for the intense role.

“An upcoming episode of Grey’s Anatomy is going to tackle the subject of sexual assault, and Wetpaint Entertainment has learned that the episode’s victim will be played by Vanessa Marano.

I play someone who was a victim of kidnapping, says Marano, who starts production on Grey’s Anatomy Season 8, Episode 20 this week. “It’s pretty intense. It’s kind of a crazy episode.”

Although, this is a very sad topic I’m glad none of the doctors of Grey’s Anatomy will be the victim of this episode.

Some of you may also recognize Vanessa Marano from Grey’s Anatomy sister show, Private Practice, since she guest starred on episode last season.
