Niko Terho On Grey’s Anatomy
19 years after Meredith, Cristina, Alex, Izzie, and George first scrubbed in at the former Seattle Grace on Grey’s Anatomy, the show finally introduced 5 new residents each trying their best to earn a permanent spot at the hospital.
Niko Terho’s character Dr. Lucas was one of these brand new “misfit interns,” portrayed as someone with a great mind but not with the grades to match. He’s “the charming black sheep of his family,” the Deadline reported. Just like many in his family, he wanted to prove himself as a surgeon.
Taking more about his character, Niko shared that Dr. Lucas “comes from a family of surgeons and they’re all really good at what they do, so he’s always kind of been in their shadow.” And now, he was ready to prove himself. Tired of being the black sheep of this family, Lucas was motivated to make a name for himself outside the family legacy.
However, Meredith and Amelia didn’t believe Lucas had what it took to be a surgeon. They even called Dr. Lucas to be Derek’s “favorite nephew” after overhearing a conversation during a rare organ transplant.
In the ep, Derek’s recited a line that made clear McDreamy’s legacy was very much still alive. To which, Lucas replied, “It’s a beautiful day to save lives,” repeating the words his uncle Derek first spoke years ago.
Four new residents joining Niko were Adelaide Kane ( Dr. Jules Millin), Midori Francis (Dr. Mika Yasuda), Harry Shum Jr. (Benson “Blue” Kwan), and Alexis Floyd (s Dr. Simone Griffin).

Recalling the filming experience, Niko admitted that he felt like he was relatively new to the acting world. “It’s pretty crazy. It just all happened so quickly that you kind of get sucked into the whirlwind of it all, and you don’t really have a lot of time to think,” he explained.
Sometimes, he even got lost in thoughts and found himself back on the set. “So, you took a step back and you’re like, ‘Wait.’ You see all the cameras and everything. You’re like, ‘We’re shooting Grey’s Anatomy right now. This is pretty remarkable!’” he added.
