It's been eight years since Katherine Heigl left "Grey's Anatomy," but the show's fans haven't forgotten her character, Izzie Stevens.
The newest "Suits" star recently chatted with TVLine, and during it, her interviewer brought up the recent TV marriage of Alex Karev (Justin Chambers), Izzie's ex-husband, and asked how Izzie would react. The actress herself was happy to hear the news, but in order to determine how her character would feel about it, Heigl had to think about where Izzie would be now.
"I don't know [how Izzie would react]," she told TVLine. "I'd have to start wondering where Izzie is."
Heigl started considering the question and expressed her hope that Izzie would still be pursuing her medical career. She also speculated that her character could have a family of her own.
"She could have children by now," she said. "She could be married… If she has moved on, then I would expect Izzie to be very happy for him. She would want him to be happy."
Funnily enough, Heigl's hopes for Izzie match those that Alex expressed when he discussed how he imagined his ex's life with his then-wife-to-be in an episode of "Grey's Anatomy."
"She's married with three kids, and she lives somewhere, I think, kind of woodsy," he said, before going on to add that his version of Izzie is a surgeon still and is just as happy as he is.
Their visions for Izzie are nice, so we hope they're right. The actress hasn't appeared on the show at all since she left, and it seems unlikely that she will anytime soon. Heigl's keeping busy, and we'll see her as a lawyer soon.
