Grey's Anatomy has cast actress Gina Gallego to play the mother of Dr. Callie Torres (Sara Ramirez). The soap opera veteran will debut May 5 as Lucia Torres, the wife of Callie's father, Carlos (Hector Elizondo), who will also appear in the episode.

Gina, 55, is known to daytime audiences for her recurring roles on numerous daytime soap operas. Her credits include Santa Barbara, The Bold and the Beautiful and, most recently, Days of Our Lives, where she played a prison warden.

Lucia and Carlos are coming to Seattle at the same time Callie's girlfriend, Arizona (Jessica Capshaw), welcomes her parents, Barbara (Judith Ivey) and Colonel Robbins (Denis Arndt), fueling speculation that a wedding might soon be taking place. 

Don't miss the coming episodes of Grey's, which I guarantee will take Calzona on a roller coaster ride of epic proportions.
