The season premiere of “Grey’s Anatomy” is just a week away and according to T.R. Knight, who plays George, things at Seattle Grace are going full steam ahead.
“Good, good,” T.R. replied when Access asked how shooting has been going so far. “We’re at episode six out of twenty-four, so the marathon has begun and we just started. . . It’s going really well.”
Knight confirmed what many suspected, that George is back at Seattle Grace, but unlike his class, most of whom have graduated, he is repeating his intern year. That year, the actor said, comes with plenty of problems.
“George is a mess,” Knight revealed. “He will continue to be a mess and make all these horrible mistakes and be humiliated by them. He’s gonna probably face a lot of humiliations.
“Plus he’s dealing with the adultery,” Knight says referring to George and Izzie’s one night stand from Season 3. “So there’s that small issue to deal with.”
Knight revealed that Chyler Leigh, who is portraying Meredith’s half-sister Lexie, has been a fun edition to the cast. He has already filmed several scenes with the brunette, which he notes have been a blast.
“There’ll be interaction between us of course because we’re both interns, you know, me as the failure intern and she as the bright-eyed, pretty, gorgeous creature that she is. So it’s just really fun working with her,” he said. “I like her a lot as a person and an actor. I’m very happy that she joined the cast.”
