Chyler Leigh Speaks on Grey's Anatomy Future

by at . Comments

During a recent red carpet appearance, Chyler Leigh spoke about Patrick Dempsey and Ellen Pompeo potentially leaving Grey's Anatomy after this season.

No one wants that to happen, but if nothing else, the original cast will have one last great run this year, and Chyler - who joined the cast in Season Four and is still under contract for several more years - is ready to carry the Grey mantle if needed.

She's also got a cute new hairstyle! Check it out after the jump:

@jpw and @Karine It is JR Bourne ,who is now in Teen Wolf on MTV .He was hosting the charity gala with Chyler .JR is close friends with Nathan ,which is a good job because they were fake flirting for most of the night .Justin Chambers and his wife were there as well -Justin and Chyler are apparently BFFs (they were going to make an indie film together last year with Nathan producing) .I'm sure if Justin is offered a new deal he would take it and he is one of the peeps she knows want to re-sign


I don't think Chyler Leigh can really be the Grey in Grey's. It's Ellen Pompeo's thing and she's the rightful Grey. But from what it looks like, she has a couple more years in her contract to go so it looks like the show is heading to the ER path. MerDer might just have the send-off George Clooney and Julianna Margulies in ER.


Lexie is my favorite character. If Ellen leaves, she can carry it on. Maggie


The guy with him is I can't figure out is name but is used to play in Stargate SG-1. I think is name is JR Bourne


i cant stand her this way, she looks like she wants ellen to leave


I love Chyler Leigh. With decent writing for her character, she could step forward as "the Grey." Just wondering who the guy is, definitely not her handsome husband Nathan West.


Although i Would NEVER want Meredith Grey (Ellen) to leave the show.... but if it comes to it, and the show has to go on, then my choice will obviously be Lexie! Or just give Alex Karev or Yang their own spin-off!


She could NEVER carry the Grey in Greys' her dreams!


if anything else...she is damn funny(in a disoriented adult kind of war)...gotta give her that..

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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.


Doesn't matter how tough we are, trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home, it changes our lives, trauma messes everybody up, but maybe that's the point. All the pain and the fear and the crap. Maybe going through all of that is what keeps us moving forward. It's what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up, before we can step up.
