Grey's Anatomy

Did Jessica Capshaw, Who Plays Arizona, Really Lose Her Leg?

One of the most dramatic plotlines on Grey's Anatomy Season 9 has been Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) losing her leg after the plane crash at the end of Season 8. But where did that plotline come from?

Some fans have wondered if it's because Jessica Capshaw, who plays Arizona, actually lost her leg in real life, especially as the amputation looks so realistic on screen. The answer to that is no: Jessica Capshaw's legs are both a-okay.

This plotline came out of showrunner Shonda Rhimes' desire to show the story of someone learning to live with their disability. You can read more about Shonda's thoughts on the plot here, and Jessica herself reveals how the show uses movie magic to make it look like she only has one leg here.

Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
