The concluding episodes of "E.R." have largely been about bringing back favorite faces from the show's past, but that doesn't mean there isn't still time to introduce new characters.

According to People, "Gilmore Girls" star Alexis Bledel will guest-star on the "E.R." finale, which is set to air on Thursday, April 2 on NBC.

Bledel will play Dr. Julia Wise, a new intern. No additional information was provided on how Bledel's character will fit into the two-hour conclusion of the Emmy-winning medical favorite.

The 27-year-old Bledel is best known for her seven-season run on The WB and The CW's "Gilmore Girls." Her big screen credits include 'The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" (and its sequel), "Sin City" and the upcoming "The Post Grad Survival Guide."
