Katherine Heigl’s ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ character almost died

HollywoodNews.com: Katherine Heigl’s character Dr. Izzie Stevens almost met a deadly end on the popular “Grey’s Anatomy” TV show. But creator Shonda Rhimes didn’t have the heart to do it for multiple reasons.

Nonetheless, Rhimes is open to Heigl returning to “Grey’s” for a guest turn at some point in the future.
The decision to kill Dr. Stevens stemmed from Heigl’s decision to leave the show.

“We discussed a lot of options, and the one we settled on felt like the [best idea] without having Izzie actually there,” Rhimes told EW, “But it also felt like the cruelest possible thing.”

Further, Rhimes didn’t want to completely write out Heigl’s alter-ego.

“I was ready to go, but then I went home and literally couldn’t sleep. It just felt so mean. It wasn’t closure; it just felt brutal. Alex (Justin Chambers) might have never recovered from it. And the audience who loved Izzie would’ve been devastated. So we didn’t do it.”

“Grey’s Anatomy” airs on Thursdays on ABC.

Heigl’s latest romantic comedy “Life as We Know It” has recently generated $44 million at the domestic box office.
