When Teddy (Kim Raver) returned full-time to GREY’S ANATOMY at the start of season 15, the pregnancy she was hiding could have led to stereotypical drama—especially since her longtime friend/baby’s father, Owen (Kevin McKidd), was very deeply entrenched with his off-on partner, Amelia (Caterina Scorsone).

But rather than exploring a stereotypical love triangle or pit the women against each other, the show allowed Teddy to exist and thrive with no backstabbing drama. Raver acknowledges the dynamic was “definitely complicated,” but the women behaving maturely, and respectfully, was an important fact for all involved. “[Showrunner] Krista [Vernoff] and I talked about it, and Caterina and I talked about it,” she recalls. “I think we really care about each other as actors, and we wanted to make sure everything was okay. I feel Krista and her writers have done an amazing job at that.”

As reported earlier in August, Kim Raver is part of a 2-episode arc on BONES this year—and the arc happens to be the first two episodes of the year. The show is treating the two episodes as a two-part premiere. The first episode airs tonight on Fox at 8 PM and the second next Thursday night.

There are other teaser posts about the premiere, and after the episode, we’ll have a post-mortem with co-showrunner Michael Peterson and my episode recap, so I won’t say too much more here, except to say that I really loved Raver’s turn as Agent Grace Miller.

Her character does butt heads with several other characters we know and love, but that is what I enjoyed about it. I think BONES does a great job integrating new characters (Aubrey being a good example), but for the most part, the new characters quickly come into alignment with the existing themes/characterizations that exist in the BONES-universe. Agent Miller challenges the audience’s perspective of Booth.

On paper, it’s true—he is a bit of a mess, he has suffered tremendous trauma, he can be dangerous, and he presents a risk. But for those characters who know him (and us in the audience), Booth’s track record doesn’t speak to his entire character. I came away from the first two episodes liking the idea that the real Booth is somewhere in the middle—not the guy in an FBI dossier against him, but also not as perfect or pure as some of the characters (and again us in the audience) make him out to be either.

On a recent conference call, I asked BONES star Emily Deschanel (Brennan) what it was like to work with Raver and what it was like to interact with a character who didn’t know Booth quite so well… Read more

BONES is back for its 11th season, and when things pick up, it’s months after Booth and Brennan left their jobs to start over.

Unfortunately, things aren’t super great — Booth goes missing, and Kim Raver’s Agent Miller is recruited to help find him.

Check out some photos from the season premiere, “The Loyalty in the Lie”…

The mystery of how BONES is going to work Booth and Brennan back to the Jeffersonian/FBI has taken an intriguing twist: 24 star Kim Raver has been cast as FBI Special Agent Grace Miller — who is involved in “the investigation surrounding the disappearance of FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth.” Raver will appear in the first two episodes of the season.

It seems Booth and Brennan’s life away from DC has taken a twist. The duo left their home at the end of season 10 for a fresh start (of sorts), with a new baby on the way, and newly reconciled after Booth’s gambling addiction relapse.

24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY: Is Kim Raver Returning?

Comments Off on 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY: Is Kim Raver Returning?

Another familiar face may be making a return when 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY debuts in 2014 — Kim Raver’s Audrey.

TVLine is reporting that Raver — whose Audrey was a love interest for Jack for several seasons, and was last seen very ill after being tortured in the show’s sixth season — is close to signing a deal to reprise the role she played from 2005-2007. A rep for Fox had no comment.

So far, the only confirmed participants in 24’s return are Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer and Mary Lynn Rajskub’s Chloe.

Raver recently appeared in the first season of REVOLUTION and had a multi-season run on GREY’S ANATOMY.
