Access caught up with “Grey’s Anatomy” star T.R. Knight last night as he was co-hosting the 52nd annual OBIE awards (honoring achievements in the off-Broadway stage) in New York City , when he admitted that he was unsure if he would be returning to “Grey’s” next season.
“I literally don’t know,” he said. “It would be nice to know if I’m supposed to report back soon.”
With his character’s fate up in the air after failing his intern test in the medical drama’s season finale, along with rumors of unease on the set due to September’s “homophobic slur” incident with castmate Isaiah Washington, fans are anxious about whether Knight will return.
Knight told Access that he got a lot of calls from friends after the finale, wanting to know if he will be back. He thinks the producers haven’t told him because actors have big mouths and would tell everyone, but that doesn’t alleviate his anxiety.
“If you’re supposed to report back to work in a month and a half, I would really like to know that,” he remarked, adding, “because I would like to know if I can shave my head.”
Knight, known for coloring his hair vibrant colors from time to time, was photographed last week with a bright red head of hair. It was back to its natural shade of brown, however, for last night’s awards presentation.
