More than three decades later, she has a recurring role on “Grey’s Anatomy,” and is a frequent director — and now exec producer of the show. “It’s a little crazy, but what a great life,” Allen tells Variety. “I’m like a cat on a hot tin roof that somehow landed on all fours.” I’m very involved in every episode, in terms of production design.

It’s actually how I started on “Fame.” I trained in acting, literature and theater, so talking to actors is something I’m really used to doing. Lydia Grant and I was the choreographer, but I soon became their favorite director because I knew how to shoot the dance and then I understood the acting. I’ve always been there as a director and somewhat of a den mom — it’s interesting; so many of them grew up on “Fame,” and I’ll never forget the first time I directed, Patrick Dempsey started singing “Fame” and doing jetes, and I’m like, “Stop it already. She’s not a series regular, but I’m there so when they need me now — last year, they had to go and try to find me — they can take advantage of me, and it’s okay! Last season, you directed a number of shows — “Grey’s,” “Scandal,” “How To Get Away with Murder,” “Empire,” “Jane the Virgin” and “Survivor’s Remorse.” Was it difficult running from set-to-set? “Jane the Virgin” was so much fun.
