In 2010 the infamous mouthy actress Katherine Heigl opted out of her Grey’s Anatomy contract where she played Isobel “Izzie” Stevens on the hit medical drama for nearly six years.
Well, now she says she wants back in! During a recent interview for promotion for her new film One For The Money, Heigl says that she would “Really, really, really, want to see where she is. I just want to know what happened to her, and where she went, and what she’s doing now. My idea is that she actually figures it out and finds success. She was always floundering and one step behind the 8-ball. I want to see that girl take some power back.”
Although coming back to the show to reprise her role won’t be the easiest thing in the world, and Katherine Heigl realizes this, stating, “there’s about 40 different storylines, so I don’t know if it fits in to their sort of vision for this season or next or however many seasons it goes.”
The actress claimed she didn’t leave due to minced words over the lack of good writing for her character in season 4, or the complaining over the hours she worked on the show, but rather the time away from her daughter, Naleigh whom she adopted in 2010.
Fans are already excited about the news and what this might mean for her past love interest Dr. Alex Karev (Justin Chambers). In fact, a Facebook campaign called “1 Million To Get Izzie Back On Grey’s” was started to get the star back on the show.
With ratings plummeting and the cast in negotiations, this might just be what the doctor ordered.
