Where You've Seen The Cast Of Station 19 Before

Created by Shonda Rhimes and part of the same fictional universe that "Grey's Anatomy" is set in, "Station 19" is a spin-off show that focuses on the firefighters of the Seattle Fire Department's Station 19. Featuring a cast made up of familiar faces, it has been airing on ABC since 2018.

As you might expect from a sister show of "Grey's Anatomy," this action-drama series has plenty of gripping moments and emotional scenes. Following the personal and professional lives of the characters, viewers get a chance to see the toll taken on those who respond to some of the worst emergencies in Seattle.

Of course, many of the faces in "Station 19" will be known to you, and not just because a lot of them have also made appearances in Shonda Rhimes' long-running medical drama. From beloved TV shows to big Hollywood films, here's where you may have seen the cast of "Station 19" before.

Barrett Doss

The role of Victoria Hughes is played by Barret Doss. A relatively young firefighter at the station, she is a friendly and caring person who has shown an ability to work well with almost everyone on the team. Part of the cast since the first season, she was previously in a relationship with Lucas Ripley, the Fire Chief for Seattle Fire Department.

According to The Huffington Post, Doss had a childhood that involved moving around a lot, spending time in New Mexico, Chicago, and New York. After eventually settling in New York, she began to appear in stage productions and landed roles in "You Can't Take It with You" and "Groundhog Day." She won the Theatre World Award for outstanding Off-Broadway or Broadway debut performance for her work on the latter (via Broadway World). Around the same time, she made her first on-screen appearance in the NBC sitcom "30 Rock."

Doss went on to add the likes of "The Family," "Girls," and "Bull" to her resume between 2016 and 2017. She was then cast as Megan in Netflix's Marvel series "Iron Fist," appearing in a total of seven episodes. The actor has also played her "Station 19" character in "Grey's Anatomy," so if you watch the medical drama there's a good chance you've seen her in action as Hughes.

Jay Hayden

Vermont native Jay Hayden portrays Travis Montgomery in "Station 19." The character is an openly gay member of the team and a popular firefighter within the Seattle Fire Department. Previously married to Michael Cooper Williams, he was left a widower following Williams' death and in the sixth season of the show decided to run for mayor in Seattle, facing off against Michael Dixon in the political race.

Although he appeared in a number of earlier roles, including the film "The House Bunny" and "The Suite Life on Deck" in 2010, his big break came when he was cast in the lead role of Turner Clay's 2011 horror film "State of Emergency." He plays a man named Jim, who takes shelter with strangers during a zombie outbreak after losing his girlfriend. He went on to land a starring role in the comedy "Battleground" and followed that with a recurring role in the ABC comedy-drama series "The Catch," with stars Mireille Enos and Peter Krause. Between 2017 and 2018 he played Dr. Daniel Shin in "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend."

Jason George

Fans of "Grey's Anatomy" will know Jason Geroge's character Dr. Benjamin Warren as the husband of Miranda Bailey. A former anesthesiologist and surgeon, he switched careers to become a firefighter at Station 19. He now operates as a PRT Physician alongside his colleagues, providing medical assistance alongside his responsibilities as a firefighter.

George's first major role came in 1996 when he landed the part of a lifeguard in the short-lived soap opera "Sunset Beach." He portrayed Michael Bourne in all three seasons of the show before he was cast in the play "The Darker Face of the Earth" in 2000, playing the son of a slave and a plantation owner. His turn as Augustus Newcastle was praised by the Los Angeles Times.

He first appeared in "Grey's Anatomy" during the sixth season in 2010 and has made regular appearances ever since in the same role he plays in "Station 19." More recently, the actor had a role in Netflix's animated series "Love, Death & Robots" and appeared in a recurring part in "Mistresses" as Dominic Taylor. In 2018, he was part of the cast of the James McTeigue thriller "Breaking In" with Gabrielle Union, and that same year he starred in the war film "Indivisible."

Jaina Lee Ortiz

Jaina Lee Ortiz plays one of the main characters in "Station 19" in the form of Andrea Herrera, affectionately known as Andy to most of her colleagues. A lieutenant at the titular fire station, her father is Captain Pruitt Herrera. She's a senior member of the team, and she has taken on the responsibility of captain several times in a temporary capacity. Andy can be just as stubborn as her late father, which is what fans love about her.

Ortiz started her career in entertainment at a young age when she trained and competed as a salsa dancer (via Deadline). She started appearing in student films while at university and was eventually cast in the reality show "Scream Queens," in which a series of contestants competed in various challenges to win a part in an upcoming horror film. Soon afterward, Ortiz was cast in a pilot for Amazon developed by "The X-Files" creator Chris Carter, though the streamer ultimately decided against making a full series.

It was just a speed bump for Ortiz. She picked herself up and went on to appear in the Fox police procedural "Rosewood" as Detective Annalise Villa. Since then she has also appeared in "Shooter" and the comedy "Girls Trip" alongside Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Regina Hall.

Alberto Frezza

Unlike most of the characters in "Station 19," Ryan Tanner (played by Alberto Frezza) is not a firefighter, but a police officer with Seattle PD. He has a close relationship with Andrea Herrera. This friendship and a chance encounter while the team was out responding to an emergency made Tanner a regular character throughout the first two seasons of the show.

Frezza is an Italian actor who was born in Milan but spent a large part of his childhood in Ethiopia before moving back to his home country to attend school. "I didn't start acting until after high school because I wanted to play soccer before that, but acting is something I always wanted to do ever since I was little," he told The Reporter Ethiopia. He eventually ended up in New York, where he studied at the New York Film Academy.

The actor made his screen debut in 2008 in the short film "Pills" before going on to make a brief appearance in the 2011 remake of "Charlie's Angels." In 2015, he played Deputy Garret Sykes in the drama series "Dead of Summer" alongside Elizabeth Mitchell, Elizabeth Lail, and Mark Indelicato. You may also recognize him from his roles in both "Criminal Minds" and "The Flight Attendant."

In 2021, the actor confirmed that he had been diagnosed with cancer. Thankfully, his chemotherapy treatment was successful. He has since raised money for cancer research, including setting up a GoFundMe page.

Grey Damon

Grey Damon portrays Jack Gibson on "Station 19." Another senior figure in the team, he has the rank of lieutenant and also worked as a co-captain with Andrea Herrera for a short time while the station was without a permanent captain following Pruitt Herrera's cancer diagnosis.

Damon's first screen role came in The CW's teen drama series "90210," where he played a waiter in the episode "Help Me, Rhonda." The same year he had a minor part in "Lincoln Heights," before appearing in the film "The Devil Within" in 2010. This sparked a number of television roles in 2010, including "True Blue," "The Whole Truth," "Greek," and "10 Things I Hate About You."

His breakthrough came when he was cast as Hastings Ruckle in the final season of "Friday Night Lights." Hastings is a former basketball player who joins the East Dillon Lions as a wide receiver. He played Archie Brener in "American Horror Story: Coven" and had recurring parts in "Star-Crossed" and "Aquarius." One of his most high-profile television roles to date was in "The Flash," in which Damon portrayed the Mirror Master.

Okieriete Onaodowan

One of the original characters in the show, Dean Miller was portrayed throughout the first five seasons of "Station 19" by Okieriete Onaodowan. Miller departed the series during Season 5, when he was killed during a gas explosion that left him with terminal injuries. He had a particularly strong bond with Captain Pruitt Herrara and even named his young daughter after his boss.

Onaodowan is probably best known for his role in the critically acclaimed musical "Hamilton." He played the roles of James Madison and Hercules Mulligan in the production, winning an Emmy Award for best musical theater album along with the rest of the cast. Prior to that, he starred in Broadway versions of "Rocky the Musical" and "American Idiot." More recently, the actor replaced Josh Groban in "Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812" as Pierre, per Broadway World.

On screen, he reprised his roles for the "Hamilton" film adaptation and starred in "A Quiet Place Part II" as Ronnie. The actor made his television debut in 2010 in the series "Gravity" and has since appeared in "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," "Blue Bloods," and "The Get Down." Additionally, Onaodowan has provided voices for characters in "Robot Chicken" and "BoJack Horseman."

Danielle Savre

Another veteran member of the "Station 19" cast, Maya Bishop is played by Danielle Savre. A competitive and experienced firefighter, she is good friends with Andrea and rose through the ranks to become a lieutenant and eventually captain at Station 19. However, she was demoted back down to lieutenant due to an incident where she went against protocol, prompting her ally Andrea to be transferred away from Station 19 when she complained about the situation.

Savre's first major role came in the 2006 straight-to-DVD sequel "Bring It On: All or Nothing," where she played Brianna. A talented singer who was involved in two musical groups as a child, according to Hollywood The Write Way, she put her skills to good use in the MTV musical drama series "Kaya," playing the lead role for the single season the show ran for. In 2016 she was cast in the TLC series "Too Close to Home," which was written, directed, and produced by Tyler Perry. She also had parts in "Wild About Harry" and "Boogeyman 2" in addition to starring in "Hollywood Heights" and the web series "T@gged."

Miguel Sandoval

Miguel Sandoval was the man responsible for portraying Captain Pruitt Herrera in "Station 19." He is the father of Andrea and a mentor to many of the other firefighters at the station. A popular figure, he is forced to step down as leader when he is diagnosed with cancer, but he remains an influential figure until his death in Season 3.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Sandoval began his career as a mime performing with several troupes. He popped up in several films during the 1980s, including "Repo Man" and "Sid and Nancy," and continued to be a familiar face on the big screen in the 1990s. He plied his trade in the likes of "Jungle Fever" and the first "Jurassic Park" film, in which he played the proprietor of the mine where the amber-encased, dinosaur blood-holding mosquitos were unearthed.

As a television actor, he has had roles in a wide array of series over the years, such as "The X-Files," "Law & Order," "ER," and "Frasier." He appeared in 130 episodes of the CBS supernatural drama series "Medium" alongside Patricia Arquette and later had parts in "Entourage" and "Bad Judge." You may also recognize him from his role as Colonel Scott Riggins in "Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency."

Boris Kodjoe

Boris Kodjoe's character Robert Sullivan made his "Station 19" debut in the second season and has since become a main cast member. Going through a meteoric rise, he became captain of Station 19 and eventually battalion chief of the entire Seattle Fire Department. Sadly, he lost his position following an opioid addiction that was caused by complex regional pain syndrome. Demoted to a firefighter, he has since been able to work his way back to the rank of lieutenant.

A promising tennis player in his youth, the Vienna-born Kodjoe studied at Virginia Commonwealth University on an athletic scholarship. When a back injury ended his sports career, he took up modeling and quickly transitioned to acting. His first TV role came in 1998 in "The Steve Harvey Show" and he has since appeared in "The Last Man on Earth," "Real Husbands of Hollywood," and "Soul Food." You may also recognize Kodjoe from the music video for "Red Light Special" by TLC.

Stefania Spampinato

Stefania Spampinato plays one of the few non-firefighter main characters in "Station 19." Carina DeLuca-Bishop originally joined "Grey's Anatomy" in 2017 as the sister of Andrew DeLuca and joined the spin-off series in 2020. The wife of Maya DeLuca-Bishop, she is an OB/GYN Attending surgeon at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital who had previously dated Arizona Robbins. She became a regular member of the cast in Season 4.

Starting her performing career as a dancer, she appeared on stage in London and eventually moved to Los Angeles to pursue her Hollywood dream.

She portrayed Sarah Barns in "The Good, the Bad, and the Dead" and, more recently, acted as Enzo Ferrari's translator in the racing biopic "Ford v Ferrari."

Carlos Miranda

Making his debut in the show during Season 4, Theo Ruiz is a Seattle Fire Department lieutenant who works at Station 23. Portrayed by Carlos Miranda, he regularly comes into contact with members of Station 19 due to the fact that he is dating Victoria Hughes and has even temporarily worked with the rest of the team. He was previously a Captain but was demoted following a mistake during an incident that ended in the death of Michael Cooper Williams.

According to L'Attitude, Miranda moved to Los Angeles in 2008 to pursue a career in acting and made several uncredited appearances in the likes of "Down for Life" and "The Lincoln Lawyer" before he landed a role in "Warrior." He has since had regular roles in television series such as "Vida" and "Ana," but he is perhaps best known for his part in the film "The Bling Ring." He played the Roy Lopez, Jr. inspired character Rob Hernandez.

Josh Randall

During Season 5, Josh Randall's character Sean Beckett joined "Station 19" as the replacement captain for Maya following her demotion. By the next season, he became a regular member of the main cast, but he is not popular with the rest of the team. Considered to have a bad attitude and lack of firefighting skills, he holds outdated views and is unsympathetic to the views of his colleagues.

Randall is probably best known for his role in the NBC sitcom "Ed," where he played series regular and Ed's best friend Dr. Mike Burton. Before that, he had appeared in the film "The Party Crashers" as well as the TV shows "Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction" and "Angel."

After being introduced to the team, she is impressed by Robert Sullivan and gives him back his old rank of lieutenant.

Beginning her career as a stage performer, she has had significant roles in a variety of Broadway productions, such as "Spamalot" and "Jesus Christ Superstar." She made her screen debut in "Angel" and has had roles in "Star-Crossed," "Sons of Anarchy," and "The Flight Attendant."

She is set to reprise the latter role for HBO's upcoming "The Last of Us" adaptation, which will also star Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey.

Pat Healy

Pat Healy plays Michael Dixon, the former fire chief for the Seattle Fire Department. Before that, Dixon was a police officer. He would rejoin the Seattle Metropolitan Police Department after being fired from his firefighting job over charges of extortion and fraud. First shown during the third season of the show, he is now part of the main cast.

Early on in his career, Healy (a native of Chicago) was cast in the Paul Thomas Anderson film "Magnolia." He has since had minor roles in a variety of films, including "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," "Ghost World," and "Pearl Harbor." In 2017, he directed the comedy film "Take Me," starring Taylor Schilling. Following Don Harvey's unavailability for the final season of "Better Call Saul," Healy replaced the actor in the role of Jeff, a cab driver who works with Saul to commit a series of crimes. The switch didn't go down well with fans.

Marla Gibbs

Perhaps the oldest recurring character in "Station 19," Marla Gibbs' Edith is an elderly resident of the Lakeside Estates retirement home. The firefighters of Station 19 regularly come into contact with Edith and the other residents, as the facility is in the station's service area and often requires medical assistance for those that live there.

Outside of "Station 19," Gibbs has had a long career in Hollywood. She notably played the character Florence Johnston in "The Jeffersons" and later starred in the spin-off show "Checking In." During her career, she has also been part of the supporting cast for films including "The Meteor Man," "The Brothers," "Lemon," and "Lost & Found." Most recently, the veteran actor (who is in her 90s) debuted on the sitcom "Days of Our Lives," where she plays the character Olivia Price.

Brett Tucker

For the first two seasons of "Station 19," Brett Tucker played fire chief Lucas Ripley. A veteran of the Seattle Fire Department, he has over 15 years of service and acted as captain for Station 19 while he was in the process of deciding who would take charge of it permanently. He died during the episode "Always Ready" due to being poisoned by a chemical at a fire he had attended the previous day.

An Australian actor, Tucker followed in the footsteps of many other famous Aussie stars by appearing in the long-running soap opera "Neighbours." In total, he has appeared in hundreds of episodes of the show as high school teacher Daniel Fitzgerald.
