★ TV Guide published an interview with Kelly McCreary (Dr. Maggie Pierce) where she talks about season 13 of Grey’s Anatomy focusing on the remaining original characters. Below are the excerpts related to Justin’s character, Alex Karev.
Kelly McCreary, who joined the cast in Season 11 as Meredith’s (Ellen Pompeo) half-sister Maggie, tells TVGuide.com that creator Shonda Rhimes plans to take deep dives into the characters of Meredith, Alex (Justin Chambers), Bailey (Chandra Wilson) and Richard Webber (James Pickens Jr.) in the upcoming season.
“After such a long period of time and so many new people coming in and out, they remain the foundational characters of the show,” McCreary says. “We’re gonna be spending some more time with them to check in with where they are. The way that we spent time with Meredith last season, exploring the major shift in her life, the loss of Derek, I think we can expect to see those doctors being explored where they are in this moment, all these years later, the changes that they’ve gone through.”
(…) It’s a safe bet that Alex’s Season 13 storyline will revolve around the fallout from Jo’s (Camilla Luddington) revelation that she’s already married and has been living under an alias to hide from her abusive husband — not to mention that beatdown we saw Alex giving DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti) in the Season 12 finale.
(…) “One of the things I’m looking forward to most is the focus on … those old, established relationships and those characters,” McCreary says. “Those characters are so rich and they have so much meaning for our audience. I think it’ll be wonderful to spend some more time with them.”
★ This Friday was the table read for Grey’s episode 13.03, and creator/producer Shonda Rhimes posted this photo of Justin and his co-star, Giacomo Gianniotti.
