During a stellar run that has already resulted in 20 seasons, Grey’s Anatomy has given fans a range of memorable characters, including Mandy Moore’s Mary Portman, that form the very crux of the show. A highlight of the ABC series is how it manages to bring in meaningful cameos as patients that the doctors on Grey’s Anatomy work on.

Several patients have had interesting backstories, with quite a few emerging as victims of tragic situations. One such character was Mary Portman, who was in the hospital during a shooting initiated by Gary Clark. Mary had come to the hospital for a minor procedure for her husband, but ended up being one of the witnesses on the scene.

The character featured in multiple episodes, and gave Moore a breakthrough with respect to her acting career, back in 2010.

Here, we look at five other TV series/movies that fans might be interested in, which all feature Mandy Moore.

The movie saw Moore deliver a compelling performance, as she was hailed for her chemistry with Zachary Levi, as well as for the vocals she lent to the narrative.
