Even TV stars have their star-stricken, geek-out moments — As Grey's Anatomy actress Camilla Luddington (Jo Wilson) tells Home & Family.
By the time the British beauty was cast for Season 9 of Grey's, she was familiar with the series, to say the least.
"I was a huge fan of the show!" she tells hosts Mark Steines and Cristina Ferrare.
And even more hilariously, she broke into a restricted area of the set!
"The producers on the show actually make fun of me because [on] my very first day, I actually sneaked in to Meredith's house," she recalls. "I wasn't supposed to be on that soundstage, and I geeked out. And I snuck in, and I was like, 'This is where Izzie posted the check on the fridge.' I was just geeking out. They make of me all the time, but I'm a fangirl on set."
And yes, she was appropriately gaga when she met the show's original hottie. "It was very strange. My first scene that I ever filmed was with both [Ellen Pompeo] and [Patrick Dempsey], and I think that he thought that I was, like, obsessed with him because I was just staring at him. And I was like, 'You're McDreamy. Oh my god! Hi!' He has this fabulous hair! It was just amazing. It was incredible."
Seeing that immaculate mane in person? Now we're even more jealous of you, Camilla!
