Chandra Wilson On Grey's Anatomy Finale

by at . Comments

The amazing Chandra Wilson, who stars as Dr. Miranda Bailey on ABC's hit drama, Grey's Anatomy, will be hanging up her white coat and stethoscope this summer to host SOAPnet's live, two-hour special from the red carpet of the 34th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

Not Chief Resident!? Wilson, a longtime fan who admits to watching hours of soaps a day, looks forward to chatting with the folks from her favorite shows.

Entertainment Tonight caught up with the TV doc at a shoot for her upcoming gig, and got a little bit of scoop on Greys Anatomy from the actress whose character surprisingly wasn't named Chief Resident in the Season 3 finale.

"It is alright," she tells ET. "[Dr. Bailey] already has her clinic. Maybe if she didn't have the clinic, she probably would have been in a better position [to land the job], but she is already running that thing. She had those conversations this year with the Chief about doing too much."

"[Richard Webber] told her: 'You need to slow down. You need to delegate.' She doesn't want to delegate. She wasn't willing to delegate. She wants to do it all. This was a good lesson about you can't do it all, or you don't have to do it all. This is a nice little wake-up call for her."

Grey's Anatomy goes back into production in July, and Chandra Wilson has been online scoping fan blogs to get viewers' take on what they want to happen in the fourth season.

"The fans wish she had made chief resident, but everything in due time," Chandra said. "She is not an attending yet. She still has that to do. We keep forgetting she has the whole responsibility of the clinic, but the fans are hoping for a showdown between Callie (Sara Ramirez) and Bailey."

What Chandra won't do is speculate on rumors as to the future of T.R. Knight and Isaiah Washington on the show.

"I really don't know what is in store," she says. "All Shonda Rhimes said is there is some great stuff in store for us. We're going to be getting back to some fun things."

(..But now the dramatic possibilities for Callie and George are maximized: he has failed his exam; she has been promoted. The results should prove interesting-- I enjoy "Dr. Bailey" a-l-o-t. Chandra Wilson's warm vitality leaps off the screen. "All in due time" is the way I feel.. I see Bailey as Dr. Webber's successor, one day. No less. Besides, just because Bailey hasn't been named Chief Resident doesn't mean she won't continue to function and behave as a Chief. Period. As she always has.. ! Derek and Burke are stars as surgeons.. but Bailey has Chief-stuff inside her. The Right Stuff. She brooks no nonsense from nobody! and she "gets" people.)

I love Bailey, too. It was really shocking to me that Callie was made Chief Resident. In fact that was just one of many season finale story lines that made no sense to me. The Chief wanted her to be Chief of Surgery if she had been an attending. How could he possibly choose someone else to be chief resident?

I love Bailey and hope she gets her fire back next season. I have really missed that. I'm also glad she looks around maybe it will help some with season 4.

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.
