But in this second part of Wetpaint Entertainment's exclusive interview with Sarah Drew, she gives us the sense that nothing is set in stone.
Read on to see what she has to say about April’s love triangle… and if Japril fans should give up hope. Then tell us whom you think she should pick in the comments below!
Wetpaint Entertainment: We know that April re-proposed to Matthew [in Season 10, Episode 2, "I Want You With Me"] and that she's been poking fun at Jackson and getting the upper hand [like in Episode 7, "Thriller"]. Do you think that she is 100 percent committed to Matthew at this point? Or do you think that she still has lingering feelings for Jackson?
Sarah Drew: Like she said in the re-proposal scene — she said, "Yeah, I have feelings for Jackson. I probably always will. He's always going to be a part of my life, and it's really confusing." So she made it clear, even in that scene, that there will always be something in her heart about Jackson. So I think for her right now… she wants to be a person who stands by her commitments. I think she, in her mind, 100 percent is gung-ho on getting married to Matthew. "Matthew is wonderful. We're gonna make a life together." If there are lingering feelings for Jackson, it's not something she's deeply conscious of. I think she's very much on the trajectory of, "This is what we do in our relationship. We move to the next step. The next step is we plan our wedding. Then the next step is this. Then our next step is that."
Who knows whether her heart might take over and change her mind in the future? Things are never really ever over on Grey's Anatomy. I would just tell fans of April and Jackson to keep watching. [Laughs] But I think that, as far as April is concerned, at this moment she is 100 percent in love with Matthew, going to marry Matthew, excited about starting her future with Matthew. Definitely.
