Kate Walsh's sister..
29 May 2007 | by kisskiss_112See all my reviews

Since I'm in Australia we are behind in the episodes of Greys Anatomy. So I have only recently seen this episode(about 3weeks ago)and I was wondering if Kate Walsh's sister was in this episode? Her character name was Diane I think. And I'm sure her role was a mother who's daughter had been admitted to the hospital, although I can't remember why. And she had blonde hair and looked almost exactly the same as Kate. Same facial features. They looked almost identical. So I'm wondering that she had to be Kates sister. I've looked all through the cast for this episode and she isn't mentioned on it. And I'm positive this is the episode she was in. Does anyone know? This would just ease my curiosity. Thank you
