Kevin McKidd’s (Owen Hunt) character on Grey's Anatomy may not be a sunny optimist, but in real life, Kevin is a true romantic. And his belief in true love carries over into his feelings about one of our favorite Grey’s couples: Owen and Cristina (Sandra Oh).

Kevin tells Access Hollywood, “I think they’re gonna be okay.” He continued, “[The writers] really get inside the heads of these two characters and sort of go, ‘Why are these people even together?’ And when they are, there’s a chemistry there that seems to work … And I do think they’re going to be happy and good for each other.”

He even goes so far as to suggest that Owen may be the one who winds up rescuing Cristina from the place crash site where we last saw her in the Season 8 finale (Season 8, Episode 24, "Flight"). “I’m sure Owen will be parachuting in there to pull her out,” he says.

Let’s just hope that Shonda listens to this gorgeous Scot!

Miss Grey’s? Us too. Luckily the show will return to Thursdays at 9 p.m. with all-new episodes in the fall on ABC.
