The beautiful, talented 54-year-old will portray patient Helen Crawford.

Aghdashloo, who recently appeared in the films The Nativity Story, X-Men: The Last Stand and The Lake House, first gained international recognition for her extraordinary work in House of Sand and Fog.

She not only garnered an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress in that role, but won Supporting Actress honors at the Independent Spirit Awards, the New York Film Critics Association and the Los Angeles Film Critics Association.

Having left her native Iran during the 1978 Islamic revolution, she is believed to be the first actress from that nation to cross over into mainstream Hollywood cinema. We're certainly looking forward to seeing what she brings to the set of Grey's Anatomy in just over two weeks.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.

Meredith

[narrating] "At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know. If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance, the view from the other side... is spectacular."
