Season two of the show moves the action from a university campus to a hospital, where fascinating and bizarre medical cases are under observation.

He joins fellow new addition John Stamos, who will play Dr Brock Holt, the hospital's brilliant but secretive head surgeon.

She said: "I think it'll be dark. I think it's going to be very dark. It's in a hospital, [there's] a lot of darkness in hospitals - dark hallways, scary rooms, sharp objects, a lot of blood, disinfectants."

Along with the 'Twilight Saga', Taylor has also starred in 'The Ridiculous Six', 'Tracers', 'Abduction' and 'Valentine's Day'.
