Kate Walsh, Addison Montgomery Relate

at . Comments

According to the Orange County Register, the lovely Kate Walsh has more than a little in common with the sexy neonatal surgeon she plays on ABC's hit medical drama, Grey's Anatomy:

The Lovely Kate
Love issues.

"Sometimes I feel like, 'What am I doing? Am I becoming my character, or is my character becoming me?'" Kate Walsh tells Best Life magazine.

"I'm starting to get a little superstitious here. I definitely identify with my character in that, romantically at least, this is not where I thought I'd be at 39."

Walsh was a regular on The Drew Carey Show and appeared on other series including Karen Sisco and The Fugitive before getting her big break on Grey's Anatomy.

Last month, ABC said it was planning a special two-hour episode featuring Walsh and guest star Taye Diggs, as a test run for a possible new series.

"I feel torn between having the time of my life and wanting very serious things, like a surplus of love for a family and all that," Walsh said.

"But what's in front of me right now is work."

Walsh finds the boundaries between herself and her character beginning to blur, perhaps a bit more than feels entirely comfortable.

"With an hour-long drama, you start playing a little closer to who you are, because the writers hear you and are around you and they start writing for you," she says.

Asked for her reaction to the blowup over castmate Isaiah Washington's anti-gay slur about co-star T.R. Knight, Walsh says there has been no fallout on the set, really, and that what she's disappointed the cast's accomplishments are being overshadowed.

"It was definitely sad. It's annoying. And it eclipsed our Golden Globe win, which I was upset about," Walsh said.

FEARx1 hi! how you doin?


Dress: UGLY
Kate: HOT!!!!!!!
The point is...it's the dress, not her, and yes, the questions are boring.


Yes, the O at home photos are GREAT! And her home is beautiful. It's worth picking up the zine. I know that sometimes the photos really aren't representative of the real look, but it does make me wonder sometimes "What were they thinking???" Ellen's dress at one of the awards shows was just awful, and I'm sure it cost a mint! Sometimes they look fabulous and other times, at least in the photos, the dresses are just not right for them.....


LOL Good point, Hot4Dempsey. I have legs like that, well at least they hold me up. Hers are just about three times as long.


ok bottom line...forget the dress....how many of you can say you have legs like that.


Have you seen the picture on Best Life same thing it is not a flattering picture when she lays on the sofa she is all bones. Horrible.
Abut the interview you know journalists are not very creative in their question and keep on asking about the slur. Boring!!!


I agree with you. All though how long ago was this interview done? She's talking about the Isaiah thin which makes me believe that this interview was done in January. If it was done just weeks ago and she's still talking about it... that's just horrible. Everyone has moved on already and the media just needs to move on too. This sh** is old now. But I still love Kate.


That dress is horrible and too short for her legs I prefer her in O at home where she looks beautiful.


Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
