CastingEditJennifer Love Hewitt was favourite to take on the role of Izzie Roberts' older sister Ellie, however after careful consideration producer Hannah decided that Jennifer didn't have the raw, cold edge that the character needed as well as a sense of vulnerability.
This lead Hannah to cast Kelly Monaco in the role.
Characterisation and Back StoryEdit
Ellie often comes across as cold and hard hearted, but she developed a thick skin as she watched her father battle cancer from a young age. Ellie learnt to rely only on herself and this has led her to live her life quite isolated, not even letting her own family get close.
Season FourEditIt has been heavily hinted that Ellie and Izzie share quite a fractured sibling relationship and this was emphasised in Season Four as the girls lost their father John. Discovering the truth about Jake Garrison being John's son devastated Ellie and she refused to allow Jake into their family, making Izzie feel torn between her sister and half brother.
Season Five is due to begin in June 2014, it is set four years after the Season Four Finale. Only Shelley Hennig (Izzie), Rachel Melvin (Holly) and Julie Marie Berman (Ashley) have been confirmed to return.
