More interviews celebrating the 200th episode of Grey’s Anatomy have come out!

The Hollywood Reporter asked the cast of Grey’s what the 200 episode milestone means for them, what most surprised them about their character and what their hopes are for a potential 300th episode. Here is what Justin had to say:

‘Grey’s Anatomy’s’ 200th Episode: The Cast Shares Surprises, Hopes for 300

Justin Chambers (Alex)
On 200: It’s been such a blessing to have a job for that long, to work with people I enjoy. To see all the ups and downs we’ve had and how we’ve gotten through it and enjoy it and continue to entertain people. The longer it goes, the more I realize how fortunate we are to have had this success.

What surprised him about Alex: Letting Izzie go like that after how much he fought to keep the marriage going and then realizing that they weren’t going to be together. Letting her go at the end was an interesting twist and surprised me. It was very adult for Alex. He’s emotionally stunted. When they got married is when he started to really grow up, but he regressed after that ended. I think Jo might get him to step up to the plate again and mature a bit.

Where Alex should be at 300: He should be a very good doctor; maybe do something in pediatrics that will revolutionize medicine. I’d like him to have more of a sense of self and self-security. To know who he is and how he handles relationships. I think he’s one of the characters on the show who’s really seen the light.

Glamour magazine’s site posted a Q&A with the cast and the answers are both funny and enlightening. Here’s a small excerpt:

Who has the most difficulty memorizing medical jargon?

Sarah Drew (Dr. April Kepner): Justin Chambers! Honestly, you can see it in every blooper reel in every season! There’s five minutes devoted to him saying, “What’s my line?!” We all die laughing.
Chandra Wilson (Dr. Miranda Bailey): Oooh, he’s gonna kill me, but maybe Kevin McKidd.
Justin Chambers (Dr. Alex Karev): Besides me? Gosh, I think it’s me. I’m on an island all my own.
James Pickens Jr. (Dr. Richard Webber): Patrick [Dempsey]. I would say Patrick.
Kevin McKidd (Dr. Owen Hunt): Justin! And me too! We’re kinda equal!
Sara Ramirez (Dr. Callie Torres): Ellen [Pompeo]. Actually, Justin Chambers is a better answer. He makes an entire commentary about what’s happening. He’ll say things like, “So much for my Emmy!”

Which cast member is always in need of caffeine?

Sarah Drew: It was Eric Dane, but now it’s Justin Chambers.
Chandra Wilson: Justin Chambers!
Justin Chambers: Me! I do Red Bulls all day!
Camilla Luddington: Justin! He drinks about five Red Bulls throughout the day, I’m not even kidding.
James Pickens Jr.: Probably Justin Chambers! His motor has to rev up, haha.
Kevin McKidd: It used to be Kim Raver. She’s a big caffeine drinker. I have to cut myself off at noon, otherwise I’ll be up all night, but she’d still be drinking it at 5, 6, 7 P.M. I don’t know how you do that!
Sara Ramirez: Patrick [Dempsey]. The racer!

Just for fun – the image below is from the Grey’s Anatomy season 5 DVD feature celebrating the 100th episode (“100th Episode: Tales From The OR”). Justin hoped for another 100 episodes and he got what he wanted! Ha!

    Haha, Justin “So much for my Emmy”. He’s so funny. But considering that he really is a great actor, he would deserve an Emmy. But he’ll probably not get it for Grey’s. It’s too late in the game, plus he’s getting only about 3 minutes of screentime per episode. Needless to say I’m a bit bitter about ep 200. So little Alex 🙁

  2. Diana says:

    There are a lot of characters and storylines going on at the same time. I think ep. 200 was to introduce Alex’s storyline and the following episodes will develop it and we’ll see more of him. I’m excited about Alex’s dad being around for a few episodes. I really want to see Alex confronting such an important part of his past and I want to see how it further deepens his relationship with Jo.

    EDIT: The thing I think was missing from the 200th episode was a good friendship moment between Maredith, Cristina and Alex. We’ve watched those 3 go from interns fresh out of med school to great surgeons and they’ve develop a strong friendship along the way.
