Will we learn anything about Maggie's adopted parents?

Kelly McCreary sat down with to speak about her new role in 'Grey's Anatomy' as Dr. Maggie Pierce.  She spoke about the upcoming development of her character and how it would move forward for fans of the show. 

McCreary also went on to give fans some insight on how her characters past might intersect with her present day self on the TV series. So, Maggie finds it difficult to fit in with the other doctors this week?

"McCreary: It's really kind of comical, actually. It's a sort of day in the life of a person who is really trying hard to demonstrate what a great doctor she is and make an effort to connect with her colleagues, and she just time and again is putting her foot in her mouth or saying or doing the wrong thing. I think people will relate to the awkwardness of being the new kid at school. There are some really, really funny moments."

Is there anyone at Grey Sloan she does become close with?

"McCreary: She and Bailey have in common their interest in the genome lab. And Richard has already become a confidante. ... So, she'll keep connecting with those two. She's got a new intern in Jo. They spend a lot of time together. Whether or not they become friendly will sort of be up in the air, but we'll find out. It's definitely a teacher-student mentorship kind of relationship more than a friendship. But Maggie has a lot to offer, so it's just a question of whether Jo can receive it and work hard enough to receive it."

How long is she going to be able to hold onto her secret about Meredith?
McCreary: She doesn't even really want to know Meredith at this point. They just don't get along. ... Under the circumstances, I think it'll take some kind of reconciliation between the two of them before Maggie can get to the point where she is willing to open up like that.

Will we learn anything about Maggie's adopted parents?

"McCreary: I really hope so. The relationship with her adopted parents will be discussed and dealt with a bit in some really fun ways, but we won't meet them just yet. I don't know when that'll happen."

What else should fans know about Maggie?

"McCreary: I think one of the most fun things to play is this tension between having this really, really great family — they treat her well, she treats them well., they love each other very much, they have a good time together  —  and still feeling like something's missing, like that's not quite enough. That's what's really compelling to me about Maggie: that sort of dark underbelly of this person who seems to really have it all together."
