TEDDY WANTED OWEN, BUT NOW SHE’S INTO … MCSTEAMY?
Teddy’s trying something; who better to be distracted by than McSteamy?
DID YOUR THIRD WATCH DAYS HELP YOU ON GREY’S?
Sometimes my instincts from Third Watch are wrong. In one scene when the ambulance came up, I’m so used to being the paramedic, I ran to help with the gurney. Sandra [Oh] was like, “No, you don’t do that.”
IS IT MORE FUN PLAYING DOCTOR OR FIGHTING BAD GUYS?
[Surgery scenes] are a huge adrenaline rush. But the topper is still learning to shoot a gun with Kiefer Sutherland in the desert.
