It ain't over till its over… and it is sooooo over!
T.R. Knight has released the official word that he is leaving the series that made him mildly famous, Grey's Anatomy.
He says: "Leaving Grey's Anatomy was not an easy decision for me to make. I am extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to play this character and will miss my fellow cast and crew very much. I continue to wish them the very best, and wholeheartedly thank all of the fans who have supported me and the show with such passion and enthusiasm."
Not to be outdone, creator Shonda Rhimes followed suit and released her own statement regarding Knight's departure.
She adds, "I think I speak for the entire Grey’s Anatomy family when I say we wish T.R. Knight the best in his future endeavors. He is an incredibly talented actor and a person whose strength of character is admired by all of us.”
So George is dead and Izzie lives. But now who will Katherine Heigl bitch to about meaningless crap behind-the-scenes? Sounds like the show needs another resident gay!
Get to work people!
