Something has been lost amid all the hullabaloo surrounding the expiring contracts of Grey’s Anatomy‘s original sextet — or rather someone: Sara Ramirez. Like co-stars Ellen Pompeo, Patrick Dempsey, Justin Chambers, James Pickens, Jr., Chandra Wilson and official departee Sandra Oh, Ramirez’ current pact with the show is also set to lapse at the end of the ABC hit’s current 10th season — a fact the actress confirmed to me earlier this week during a visit to TVLine’s NY HQ.
But Ramirez’ uncertain Grey’s future was but one of several hot topics on the table during our candid chat, which you can view in its entirety below. The Broadway vet also previewed this Thursday’s flashback-heavy Callie-centric episode (answers are coming!), teased her alter ego’s reaction upon learning Arizona has been playing doctor with intern Leah (“It’s how she finds out… “), and looked ahead to Callie’s own rebound relationship — with a woman or a man (cough Owen?! cough).
Oh, and watch as Ramirez casually reveals which Grey’s cast member is her workout buddy!
