"It was cold," she says.
But Chyler Leigh isn't talking about the drama that led up to this point. Nope, she's being 100% literal. (maybe)
For Lexie Grey's death, the Grey's Anatomy cast and crew went up to Big Bear, California where Chyler laid under a plane for 2 days.
For her, the experience went like this:
"It would rain and be sunny and hot. I never died before [on camera]. That sounds funny saying that. I think everyone has an emotional wellspring and that happened to be a moment where I was sprung.
Everybody was very accommodating — the crew, cast. And I opted to stay underneath [the wreckage] for the most part over two days rather than trying to get in and out.
Ironically, I think [I'm most proud of] her death. It really was a chance for me to be able to go from the beginning of the character to the end.
There's something that's very bittersweet about that. Something about being able to be there for the moment of her death that I appreciate. I don't know if that's morbid or not, but that's how I feel."
Gurl's gettin' deep! Ha!
Sigh.. we still can't believe it happened, but hey… makes for compelling TV! And we all know Grey's needed it this past season!
