Rep Denies Report of T.R. Knight Quitting Grey's Anatomy

at . Comments

Despite a report picked up on several celebrity news sites, T.R. Knight is not leaving Grey's Anatomy, a show rep told Us Weekly exclusively Monday.

T.R. Knight has never walked off set in the middle of filming. He attended the table read today and will be shooting this week, just like any other week of production," the Grey's Anatomy rep said, responding to recent reports.

Rumors first erupted after an entertainment lawyer posted on his personal website, CrazyDaysAndNights.net, that Knight walked off and quit the show.

"So, I got a little more information from my source and they say, 'He hasn’t attended table reads since Episode 2. He's pissed and miserable and thinks his story line is stupid,'" he blogged.

"He said goodbye to his hair and makeup people last week. He says he is done and has quit. ABC has not released him. Shonda Rhimes, the producer called him and he told her he had nothing to say. He has packed his dressing room.”

He Passed!

Although it has now been emphatically denied, it's interesting that this rumor popped up after T.R.'s character, George O'Malley, has been conspicuously MIA for weeks. One wonders if there may be a little truth to it, even if the incident were exaggerated. Thoughts?

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

[narrating] "At the end of the day, when it comes down to it, all we really want is to be close to somebody. So this thing where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, it's usually a load of bull. So we pick and choose who we want to remain close to, and once we've chosen those people, we tend to stick close by. No matter how much we hurt them. The people that are still with you at the end of the day, those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need."

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."
