This Tuesday, Grey’s Anatomy’s Chyler Leigh is playing a role that’s just about as far removed from Lexie Gray as you can imagine. She’s the star of a Lifetime movie titled The 19th Wife, based on the best-selling novel of the same name by David Ebershoff. As reported by SheKnows, Leigh will portray Queenie, a fundamentalist-sect member of the Church of Latter-Day Saints, who comes to the aid of another member, BeckyLyn (played by Brothers and Sisters’ Patricia Wettig), after the latter is accused of murdering her husband. Alton solicits the help of BeckyLyn’s son (played by The Good Wife’s Matt Czuchry), and the two uncover secret after secret in their efforts to exonerate BeckyLyn. The 19th Wife airs on Lifetime this Tuesday, September 13, at 9 PM EDT.
Now, all that aside, could you imagine if polygamy occurred on Grey’s? Derek could be wed to Meredith, Addison, Rose, and the list goes on and on... (Just stick to monogamy, please, Shonda.)
