Notes and TriviaEdit

  • Caterina watched the first season of Grey's while she studied for her finals for her bachelor's degree. It made her want to be a doctor, but after a six week lecture series, she realized she didn't want to be a doctor but just play one on television, which is why she moved to Los Angeles.
  • There's a spotlight piece on Caterina on the season 11 DVD.
  • She's close friends with Sarah Drew, with whom she also hangs out outside of work. For example, they hung out at Sarah's house to watch Unbreak My Heart.
  • She's been a midwife's assistant, so she doesn't feel uncomfortable around blood.
  • Caterina knows her character very well and she always checks the script to make sure everything is in line with what she already understands of Amelia.
  • When on Private Practice, Caterina learned how to do sutures as Amelia had to suture up her own hand.
  • Caterina's favorite episodes are It's the End of the WorldAs We Know ItSanctuaryDeath and All His Friends, and Do You Know?.
  • What Caterina loves most about Amelia is the fact that because of all she's been through, she doesn't try to be appropriate in situations.

  • Caterina Scorsone and Kate Walsh play the only two characters to be part of the main cast of both shows.
