Grey Sloan Memorial has a real turnover problem. Sure, Meredith has worked her way up to head of general surgery over these past 16 seasons, but so many of the other former interns and residents on Grey’s Anatomy have died, quit, lost their jobs, or just vanished.

We’re happy to report, however, that many of the actors behind those characters found steady employment after scrubbing out. Scroll down for career updates on some of the ABC medical drama’s former guests and recurring stars.

Ali—who played Dr. Dahlia Qadri over three seasons until the resident got fired by Bailey (Chandra Wilson)—will next star in the Prime Video drama The Wilds, a series described as “part survival drama, part dystopic slumber party.”

Davis, a.k.a. Season 9 resident Jason Myers, might be the most steadily employed actor on this list. Right after his Grey’s stint, he joined the cast of The Originals as Marcel. When that show ended, he moved on to series-regular roles in Younger and, as of this March, NCIS: New Orleans. And this July, he and Laura Harrier appeared in the music video for Kygo’s remix of “What’s Love Got to Do With It.”

Gavankar’s career has taken off since she played Intern Lisa (no last name given) across two episodes of Season 5, with recurring roles on Arrow, The Vampire Diaries, and Better Things and starring roles in—deep breath—The L Word, The Gates, True Blood, The Mysteries of Laura, Sleepy Hollow, and The Morning Show. She also, interestingly, played interactive search engine assistant Ms. Dewey for an experimental Microsoft site.
