Melissa George Discusses Grey's Anatomy Character, Sadie

at . Comments

Circle November 13 on your calendar as the day Alias' Melissa George debuts as Grey's Anatomy's newest intern, Sadie. The big question on many fans' minds, of course, remains whether Sadie's reported bisexuality and Meredith Grey have intersected.

TV sleuth Michael Ausiello attempts to get to the bottom of that in an interview with Melissa George, published today on Entertainment Weekly ...

Q: Tell me about Sadie.

Melissa George: I'm dying to find out more about her because her behavior is so interesting. She's a girl that walks on the wild side. She's very close with Meredith; they were best friends. They traveled around the world together. And when Meredith went to work at Seattle Grace, Sadie went to work at a morgue. I'm dying to know why she behaves so recklessly. Anyone who behaves like that has to have a lot of issues.

Q: For the record, is she bisexual or a lesbian?

Melissa George: She just takes anything - whatever walks in front of her. [Laughs] If it's a male, she'll go for it. If it's a female, she'll go for it. She doesn't think attraction should be [limited] by gender. I sort of look at people and go, "Wow, how do you live like that?" But she seems to get a thrill out of shocking people.

Sadie and Meredith

Q: Obvious question: Did Meredith Grey and Sadie "experiment" back in the day?

Melissa George: We don't know. But that's what's so intriguing: What happened between these two? It's brought up a lot [on the show], but we've never revealed what happened.

Q: But something happened.

Melissa George: I think so. There's a lot of [Mer-Sadie] dialogue like "Don't tell them what happened!" So, something did happen, but I'm not sure what.They obviously traveled together and were very close. Did they date? Did they not? Did something major happen to them that they swore they'd never discuss? It could be anything.

Q: How long are you committed to the show for?

Melissa George: I'm here for a while. I'm sort of playing it by ear. I'd love to stay as long as possible. I'm shooting my fourth one this week, and I don't think it's stopping.

Q: Conventional Grey's Anatomy wisdom has you gravitating toward one of Seattle Grace's other two bisexual docs, Callie or Erica. Do you know which one it'll be?

Melissa George: They haven't told me, and I've been asking them every day, "Which one am I going to be making out with?" Or not! It could be one of the guys. I just said yes to Grey's Anatomy, the greatest show on TV. I didn't say, "What do I have to do?" So I'm sort of looking around going, "Which one is going to be my girl or my guy?"

Q: Last season at this time, there were no bisexual characters on Grey's Anatomy. Now there are at least three. Is there something in the water at Seattle Grace?

Melissa George: I'm not sure. Maybe they're not getting the right victims coming through the door so they're bored. [Laughs] Bisexuality exists. It's common. I guess they're experimenting.

I am not a hater...I am down with the rainbow. I just do not need to see it in every storyline on practically every tv show. And BTW Mark and Callie will end up together!

I love the fact that we got to know more about
Meredith back in the days but I hope
that Meredith was/is not gay.
Enough with the lesbian drama!
Just let Meredith and Derek be happy!!!!!

My Grey's Anatomy group is slowly dwindlting because of all the lesbian talk. Why can't we have a show on tv without this topic? It is something that I do not need to see when I sit down to watch my fav. show!

Lexie is kind of pinguin like. I can imagine her marriage with
George surrounded by pinguins.

As far lesbians are involved I have just remember the Mark Callie
leg scene in the previous episod.If I were writer and have to present lesbian I 'll put all the scenes in one two hour episod
and all they will be lesbians. In such way we discuss the topic.

I'm definitely not excited for this character to be introduced on Grey's, in addition to the possibility of her causing trouble for Meredith and Derek, she played Lauren on Alias and for those of you who were fans of Alias know why I'm already predisposed to disliking her.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

I want to marry you. I want to have kids with you. I want to build us a house. I want to settle down and grow old with you. I want to die when I'm 110 years old, in your arms. I don't want 48 uninterrupted hours. I want a lifetime. Mmm. Do you see what happens? I say things like that and you fight the urge to run in the opposite direction. It's okay, I understand. I didn't, but now I do, I do. You're just getting started and I've been doing this for a long time now. Deep down, you're still an intern, and you're not ready.

Derek

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.
