At six feet nine inches tall, Hayward was one of the four stars of TLC's fascinating My Giant Life this summer. On Tuesday night, the women all got together for a "Big Updates" special and Hayward revealed she had been cast for a role on Grey's.
"I have Marfan disease, the role that I play," Hayward revealed. "She's a seven feet two [inch] woman but she thinks she's six [feet] six [inches]. Usually I play an overly aggressive fighter type, but it gets to the insight of who actually are as uniquely tall women."
The actress and former wrestler is the Guinness World Record holder for the Tallest Actress in a Leading Role. She gets her height from her father, who she recently reunited with for the first time since she was 11-years-old during an episode of My Giant Life.
Hayward appears on the October 1 episode of Grey's Anatomy.
