Katherine Heigl left “Grey’s Anatomy” in 2010 after six seasons playing Dr. Izzie Stevens on the hit show, and the actress says she would “absolutely” like to step back into her scrubs once again.
“I always thought that there would be an opportunity to go back [to the show] for at least a few episodes to sort of wrap it up in a way that everyone could feel good about,” Katherine told Access Hollywood at the premiere of her new movie, “One for the Money,” in Los Angeles on Tuesday. “As of now, we’re like, ‘Where did Izzie go? What is she doing?’
“So, I would love to kind of go back and have one more crack at her,” she added.
While there were rumors that the now-33–year-old was no longer happy playing the quirky young doctor at the time of her exit, Katherine said Izzie will always have a place in her heart.
“I loved that character and she meant a lot to me,” she told Access.
Beyond talk of “Grey’s,” Katherine told Access that a recent trip to “The View” – where she brought adorable 3-year-old daughter Naleigh along for the interview – has revealed that her daughter may want follow in her mother’s famous footsteps.
“The whole rest of the day she was like, ‘I want to be on TV! I want to go on TV too,’” she told Access of Naliegh’s newfound interest. “I was like, ‘Oh no, it’s over now.’”
“One for the Money,” which also features Jason O’Mara, John Leguizamo and Sherri Shepherd, opens in theaters on Friday.
