Speaking to E! Online, Drew confirmed that April has moved on from Derek (Patrick Dempsey) now.
However, she added that she would love April to find a partner.
"She's never been loved!" she said. "In her big monologue, she goes, 'I've never been loved, I haven't lived yet', so that's my hope for April."
Drew added that she would like the relationship to be similar to the romance between Bright and Hannah in her previous show Everwood.
"Like a really sweet love story," she said. "An innocent, blossoming of her and entering into becoming a woman - even though she's 28 years old."
Drew also hinted at another storyline coming up for her character, saying: "There's a really fun secret about April revealed in episode three."
Grey's Anatomy continues on Thursdays at 9/8c on ABC.
