On Grey’s Anatomy, Dr. Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) is surprised when his mother shows up at the hospital – as a patient. Okay, maybe surprised is putting it mildly. He freaks out.
Mrs. Hunt is portrayed by Debra Mooney. She’s appeared in countless TV shows. She’s best known for her roles as Joan Bark on Arrested Development, Verna Thornton on Scandal, Edna Harper on Everwood, and Mrs. Wellman on Roseanne. She’s currently starring in the new FOX TV series Rake with Oscar-winner Greg Kinnear. Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursdays at 8pm on ABC.
