Even though it was long rumored that Katherine Heigl was looking for a way out on Grey’s Anatomy, and that she acted like a diva on set. Now that she’s out, she can pull the “they are my family” and “I’ll miss everyone” card.
Heigl announced her departure from the show this March, a continuation of a three month hiatus she had previously taken following the last season finale.
But the actress tells Entertainment Weekly, that she misses the rest of the cast, and is keeping in touch.
“Ellen (Pompeo) and I text a lot. I’m still waiting to meet Stella Luna. And Justin (Chambers) and I have been texting. Chyler Leigh is one of the most amazing young women. Just unbelievably lovely and supportive. These are my friends. They’re kind of family at this point. I spent more time with them over the past six years than I did with my own family. So I’m going to miss that.”
