Prior to "Grey's Anatomy," Sara Ramirez was seen in the Broadway smash-hit "Monty Python's Spamolot" as Lady of the Lake, for which she earned both a Tony Award for Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Musical and an Outer Critics Award for Outstanding Featured Actress in a Musical.

Blessed with a rich, smoky voice, Ramirez graduated from the acclaimed Juilliard Drama School. Shortly after graduation, she made her Broadway debut starring as Wahzinak in Paul Simon's "The Capeman." She followed that with a starring part in the Gershwins' "Fascinating Rhythm," for which she received an Outer Critics Circle nomination for Best Actress. In 2001 she was in Broadway's "A Class Act," a musical biography based on the life of Ed Kleban, in the role of Felicia. Off-Broadway Ramirez has performed in "The Vagina Monologues" with Tovah Feldshuh and Suzanne Bertish.

Her television appearances include "NYPD Blue," "Law & Order: SUV," "Third Watch" and "Spin City," plus several pilots.

Her concerts have included "Martinis" at the Martin, "Sara Ramirez with Hollis Resnik" at The Ravinia, "Bravo Bernstein" (MTW's 20th Anniversary gala concert) at the Hudson Theatre and "The Barrington Stage Company Gala," where she sang "Wanting Her More" from "The Game."

This summer Ramirez started working on her first album for Universal Records with the Tony Award-winning writers of "Spamalot," Eric Idle and John Du Prez.
