Grey's Anatomy via ABC

Vote for Your Favorite Grey's Anatomy Characters

The Grey's Anatomy cast has a special place in our hearts. From the first episode, we found ourselves growing with them and even feeling their pain. What's not to love about a group of intelligent, funny, and beautiful doctors? At the least, they're great to look at!

However, we definitely like to pick favorites when it comes to the doctors. Some of them really get on our nerves, and others we just can't get enough of.

We care about the Grey's Anatomy doctors like our own families. I mean, they might as well be our second family! We have created a list of the entire cast, and are leaving it up to you to rank your favorites. It might not be as easy as it sounds.
