Chyler Leigh: Like Kissing Your Sister

by at . Comments

The cute brunette is stirring up Grey's Anatomy fans as Lexie Grey, and not just because she's so gorgeous - she's been the center of attention ever since she was introduced as the sister of Meredith Grey and recent love interest of Alex Karev.

Little is known, relatively speaking, about the past works of this actress. Well, that said, some Grey's Anatomy fans have unearthed a 1997 B-movie, called "Kickboxing Academy," that Chyler Leigh starred in when she was just 15.

Interestingly, the actress' love interest in the virtually unknown movie is played by her real-life brother, Christopher Khayman Lee. And yes, the New York Daily News reports, there are kissing scenes in the movie. A few of them.

Leigh, Chyler
Chyler Leigh, 25, has certainly come a long way.

Hey, whatever you have to do to get your career started, right? Chyler Leigh, who was in a number of failed series and smaller films before getting her big break on Grey's Anatomy, has also overcome considerable personal adversity in her life.

We're glad she's a member of the Grey's Anatomy cast and look forward to learning more about her - as well as seeing where her character is headed.

Hate to break it to you "greysanatomythursdays" but I'm pretty sure that Lexie is a permenant character.

Chyler Leigh was also in the movie entitled 'Not Another Teen Movie'.

Frankly, i do not agree with any of you. i hate Lexie. I hate Chyler. Who has kissing scenes-with your own brother! I think no normal person with any morals what so ever would agree to insist. So hearing this-makes me want her to die. Tragicly. Her character really is very poor. She's a bad actress, not attractive at all, and WHINY!! God could she just stop being so WHINY for ONCE!! so her dad had a drinking problem-Alex was right, having to deal with that when you 26~"oh poor baby!!" If there isa one thing that would permanently make me stop watching the show is if lexie Grey becomes a permenant character. She is no Addison. She is not wanted. Lexie Grey. I hate you.

I agree with "HoldTheElevator." Lexie is like the new Addison. When Addison first came on I didn't like her at all but then like in the middle of season two, she somehow became my favorite character. Actually, she's still my favorite character even though she's on Private Practice now and not Grey's.

I firmly believe that you´re wrong. It is painfully obvious that Meredith doesn´t want to be affected by what her father does, but she can´t really help it. She feels hurt, and maybe she always will. The thing is, she has to get over it if she wants a chance to a happy life. About Lexie. I love her. I know my nick says otherwise, but I invented it between seasons 3 & 4, so I thought she was going to be the thorn in Meredith´s side. Since she´s not, and she is a very lovable character, sweet and akward and very unsure of herself (like a fish out of the water), I find her very endearing. I like her and Alex together. Rebecca I do not particularly like, besides, I think since she has no plausible reason to hang out at SGH 24/7, she and Alex have no future together. (Plus she is a mother and a wife, how bad is that?). But mostly I like her because she adds more depht to Meredith´s character and I am sure will be very important in her "evolving and growth" as a person. She needs to heal, and confronting her issues because Lexie is a constant reminder will be impossible for her to avoid, I mean at certain point she will have to deal and confront and develop a relationship with this girl whom she could grow not only to like, but lo love and depend upon. Besides, I really liked her character "Tuesday" in "That 80s show". I know the show was not very good, but I really enjoyed watching her with that hairdo. She rocked. Very cool.

It's like she's the new Addison. I do like her but I can't say I like her with any one in particular. I don't love her with Alex - I'm pulling for Ava - and definitely not with Derek. I think her character is cute and she plays the whole drunken daddy issues very well because unlike Meredith, she is actually hurt by what her dad says and does whereas Mer doesn't really care for him.

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.

Meredith
