Interview with Camilla about the Grey’s Anatomy premiere

Camilla gave an interview to Entertainment Weekly about the Grey’s premiere and you can read some of it here.

Yes, she’s happy Alex didn’t beat up Paul, but is there fear now that Paul could somehow track her down?

I think because Alex didn’t say anything to him, I feel like she won’t feel that there’s that fear there. Also, she now knows where he is. So there’s power in knowledge, and he feels very far away. Right now, there’s still a feeling of safety, and maybe even comfort, in knowing that he’s so far from her. But yeah, I don’t think she feels an immediate threat after the conversation, which is a big deal to her.

And yet he is coming back.

They haven’t confirmed it. ABC has not confirmed Matthew Morrison is coming back. That’s all I can say, but I’ll still try to answer a question.

Can you, from an actor’s perspective, talk about prepping — at least in your head — to explore this other side once he does come back into the picture?

I feel like this has been the weight on Jo, because obviously I didn’t know she was married until the end of season 12, then I felt like all of 13, I personally, as an actor, felt all this weight on her from it. And I realize that’s something she can’t shake maybe until they do see each other again. It’s a very important story to tell. I’m honored to be part of that story, and I hope that we do see him, and hopefully it does lead to some sort of healing and closure for her. But it’s also kind of terrifying, the idea of seeing him again, because the way she’s described him is that he’s very, very, very manipulative, and he’s a very frightening person. I would love her to have the strength to continue to stand up for herself, but we haven’t seen what that relationship is like together yet. So, we’ll have to see, if they do meet, what that means for her.

Scoop on Jo in Grey’s Anatomy season 14!

Scoop on Jo in Grey’s Anatomy season 14!

Thanks to TV Line being at the summer TCA’s they got some info about Jo in Grey’s this coming season!

Will the Grey’s Anatomy writers finally dive into Jo’s storyline this season? Will Jo Wilson find her mentor? And isn’t she due to take her boards soon? —Burcu
“We will absolutely explore Jo’s story more,” Camilla Luddington told me at TCA when I hand-delivered your Qs. “I know that with the domestic violence storyline, we want to show the spectrum of emotional damage that can do to someone — what their triggers may be, how it affects past and future relationships, the details of what she experienced — and hopefully show recovery and healing. It will be very intense to play but I feel honored to be given the opportunity to tackle something so complex.” As for the mentor matter, although Callie is now gone, “this season Jo may feel inspired by someone again,” ventures the actress, who also has heard “rumblings” that Jo will (finally) brave her boards in Season 14.
