Katherine Heigl In “Grey’s Anatomy”

Katherine Heigl left Grey’s Anatomy, the show that made her famous, in 2010 to focus on her film career. While working on the medical drama, Heigl gained her now-famous Hollywood reputation of being “difficult” on set. Since she left the hit show, Heigl’s career has been inconsistent. Because of this, Heigl would love to return to the show. She said, “I want them to know that I’m down with it if they want me to.”
