The Grey’s Anatomy cast has included many recognizable faces over the years, including a few that went on to even bigger things after a guest-starring appearance.
It was way back in Season 2 that the character of Dylan Young appeared on the Grey’s Anatomy cast. The character wouldn’t survive, but the actor left a very memorable impression on fans of the show.
As for who played Dylan Young on Grey’s Anatomy, that was award-winning actor Kyle Chandler. Since his time on the show, he has gone on to have huge accomplishments within the industry. Still, his episodes of Grey’s Anatomy were extremely memorable for some particular reasons.
On May 13, ABC is reshowing the Super Bowl episode and the bomb episode of Grey’s Anatomy that Kyle Chandler appeared in. The network is revisiting some well-written episodes from the past during a season that has been all about remembering faces from the past.
During a large chunk of Grey’s Anatomy Season 17, Meredith Grey has seen characters who have died on the show. That included her husband, Derek Shepherd, as well as her sister, Lexie Grey. It’s only fitting that we also see one of the most memorable guest stars as well.
