Fans of Dr. George O'Malley aren't the only ones who want T.R. Knight to continue on Grey's Anatomy. Evidently, his co-stars, Justin Chambers and Melissa George don't want him to hang up his scrubs just yet.
"T.R. is an amazing actor and I want him to be there as long as I'm on there," Chambers, who plays Dr. Alex Karev on the ABC medical drama, said at the night at the Salvatore Ferragamo benefit for L'Aquila Earthquake victims. "He's wonderful to work with."
But Knight being a great actor is not the only reason why his co-star wants him to stay. Chambers also believes that Knight's character has so much growing to do.
"That's one great thing about the show," Chambers said. "All the characters have so much to explore. The audience followed these young interns coming into this hospital and now they're residents, but they have more to learn as far as surgery, social skills and manners."
Former Grey's Anatomy
actress Melissa George, on the other hand, isn't convinced that Knight is definitely out of the canvas. And no matter what happens, "He will go on to bigger and better things."
While Grey's Anatomy
fans await the fate of T.R. Knight, as well as Katherine Heigl (Izzie Stevens), one cast member is worried about her own.
Chandra Wilson, who portrays Dr. Bailey on Grey's Anatomy
, is still waiting to re-sign her contract to come back next season even though her storyline doesn't really tip-off any exit signs.
"You know, I don't have the slightest idea!" she said on The View
Thursday when asked if she knew who was leaving the show. "I know nothing!"
"I'm waiting for my Disney letter saying, 'You have the option to come back,'" she said, adding that the show has until June 20 to send it.
