Kim Raver and Jesse Williams represented the cast of Grey's Anatomy at the ABC TCA day in Beverly Hills over the weekend. Jesse, who was recently promoted to a series regular, brought his piercing blue eyes to chat about making the incredibly intense season finale. Kim and Jesse joked about having to learn all the crazy medical words and how they try to make up funny little devices to help each other remember the phrases. They also gushed about what has made the show a success for so long, despite all the off screen casting drama. Here's what Jesse and Kim had to say about what to expect when Grey's returns:
Jesse, congrats on being made a regular. How was that when you got the news?
Jesse Williams: It was wonderful. It was kind of a time-release period of information. I knew I got picked up for the option, and then I knew it was a possibility, and then a narrower possibility and then I got the news when I was overseas on a break during the hiatus. It was great. It was a nice little treat during the vacation to bring it all back together.
Both of you must have been excited to survive the finale.
Kim Raver: Exactly. It was like ooooh, one person down. Oh, another person down! I'm kind of used to that though, with 24. There's always that target on your back.
JW: That was a tenuous table read. Everybody's skipping ahead to see if your name appears at the end.
