Alex to Continue Mourning Izzie on Grey's Anatomy

at . Comments

Katherine Heigl is gone from Grey's Anatomy, but not forgotten.

This is particularly true for her co-star and on-screen husband.

"I miss her all the time," Justin Chambers told E! at the Maui Film Festival. "Katherine's such a great actor. She's so fun to work off of. I really miss working with her."

We've seen the last of their on-screen romance ... but we haven't heard the last of it. As we know, Alex called out for Izzie when he was shot in the Season Six finale.

"I think that's a couple on TV that people will always remember," he said. "There's not much Alex without her. I think he'll be mourning Izzie for the next two seasons."

Katherine Heigl's exit from Grey's Anatomy was an ongoing saga.

Chambers also defended his friend, who was originally due to return in the second half of this past season but ultimately did not, against her many critics in the press.

"She admits that she has a mouth on her, but she's got a heart that's much bigger than her mouth," he said. "It's unfair because I think people have taken her the wrong way."

"She's actually a good person. She's very funny and very kind."

Do you miss Izzie? Should the show continue to explore Alex's feeling for her next season, or have him make a clean break emotionally? Discuss.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."
