TR Knight's Comments to Entertainment Weekly About Leaving Grey's Anatomy

T.R. Knight Speaks Out on Leaving Grey's

Where did George go on Grey's Anatomy last season? Why would T.R. Knight leave a hit show behind? That's what Knight himself talks about on this week's cover of Entertainment Weekly. While we won't get to read the full story till tomorrow, here are some early highlights:

  • Knight realized George had "expired." That's how Knight describes what happened to George at the start of season five. But he didn't talk to creator Shonda Rhimes about it, instead simply asking to leave.
  • He didn't like George's cheating storyline. Apparently, Knight struggled with the idea that George would be cheating on his wife, Callie (Sara Ramirez), with Izzie (Katherine Heigl).
  • He didn't know where George was headed. "My five-year experience proved to me that I could not trust any answer that was given [about George]," he says in the story. "And with respect, I'm going to leave it at that."
  • Heigl tried to talk him out of leaving. "I felt like some of the problems could be worked through," she says. "But by the time it came to fruition, I was [glad] for him because he was ready to go."

I'm curious to see more when the full story hits newsstands. Are you surprised at any of his comments? Will you miss him on Grey's?
