Grey’s Anatomy: Katherine Heigl Comments on Sandra Oh’s Grey’s Exit
After last night’s Return Of The Burke, Cristina (Sandra Oh) only has two episodes left before she’s gone from Seattle and Grey’s Anatomy forever. And who better to comment on her leaving than a series regular who’s gone through the same thing herself?
Thursday, Katherine Heigl (Izzie Stevens) weighed in on Sandra’s departure on Twitter. Although the circumstances of their leaving the show are a little different — Katherine asked to be written off to pursue a film career, while Sandra’s decided not to renew her contract — Katherine had some nice things to say about her former co-star.
“I wish her all the best,” Katherine tweeted. “Can’t wait to see what she does next!”
Neither can we. From what we already know, Sandra has a few movies lined up — including Tammy, a comedy starring the always hilarious Melissa McCarthy. We can’t wait!
It’s a little heartbreaking to think about the fact that after this season comes to a close, only two of the original interns will remain: Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Alex (Justin Chambers). Otherwise, only a handful of the original cast has stuck with show since day one. It’s okay, Grey’s — we’re not going anywhere.
What do you think about Sandra leaving the show? Are you ready to say goodbye?
