It’s finally here!! Make sure to watch @greysabc this Thursday 4/9 @ 9EST/8CST to see me in the season finale! I feel so lucky to have gotten to film this amazing episode (directed by the fabulous @deborahmpratt ) right before Grey’s shut down production because of the coronavirus. 🦠 Thank you to @take3talent and @natashamatallanamarken for making this possible and to @shondarhimes and @therealdebbieallen for having me. It was such an honor to get to act with my TV dad @raoulbhaneja and @deedeemagnohallofficial and to meet @camillaluddington @richardfloodofficial and @ijessewilliams who were all so nice and welcoming. And, lastly, thanks to @legacyeffects for making a fake me. #greysanatomy #daya #seasonfinale #take3talent #abc
