The debate over the fate of Katherine Heigl’s character on Grey’s Anatomy rages on. Heigl, who is currently filming the upcoming thriller, Five Killers, with Ashton Kutcher in Nice, France, is now saying that she has no idea what will happen to her character, Izzie Stevens. At a studio party marking Grey’s 100th episode, Heigl said its too soon to speculate about the fate of Dr. Stevens.
“I was assuming that at one point and I got a lot of shrugged shoulders and shakes of the head, so I don’t know if that’s a yes or a no. No one will tell me and I don’t know how this is going to go,” Heigl said, noting series creator Shonda Rhimes’ passion for plot secrecy. “I don’t know if I live or die. I don’t know how Izzie fares,” said the actress, who’s played the character since the show debuted in 2005. “I’m there” if Izzie remains part of Grey’s Anatomy,” Heigl said.
Currently, Heigl’s character is battling a rare form of cancer that only has a 5% survival rate. In last week’s episode, Izzie survived a dangerous brain surgery but her fate still hangs in the balance fueling the rumors that Heig was leaving the show.
Heigl also said she is happy balancing her big screen pursuits with her small screen day job.
“I’m more than happy to make that compromise. As my agent likes to say, ‘High-class problems,'” Heigl said. “I don’t know if I want to continue for five years working 12 months a year, but I can take at least another year or two,” she said.
In other GA news, the show’s creator, Shonda Rhimes, let it spill that the 100th episode takes place on Meredith and Derek’s wedding day. That is all the information she would spill and it certainly doesn’t mean they will actually get married. Remember what happened on Burke and Cristina’s wedding day?
The show’s 100th episode will air May 7th on ABC.
