Giacomo Gianniotti Reflects on His 'Grey's Anatomy' Journey, Reveals He's Directing Next Episode!

Giacomo Gianniotti will be making his directorial debut with an upcoming episode of Grey’s Anatomy!

The 31-year-old actor, who plays Dr. Andrew DeLuca on the ABC medical drama series, revealed on his Instagram account that he begins shooting the episode on Tuesday (February 16).

Giacomo opened up about being in high school when the show first started airing and how he’s living his dream by starring on the series.

“It was 2006. I remember it like yesterday. 17 years young. I was in High School. Grade 11 at Cardinal Carter Academy for the Arts in Toronto, Canada. The boys and I would roll to the Sheppard centre for lunch with our collared polo shirts and lose ties with a pack of dumos triple folded in the sleeve. Id usually grab a slice of pizza from Casa Mana with a brio or maybe a blue jones soda from the news stand if I was feeling fancy. The boys and I would play briscola in teams, all with our secret signals. And the girls would watch, chew bubble gum and gossip about the latest steamy hookup on Greys Anatomy. They wouldn’t shut up about it… Graduation was on the horizon and I had high hopes for breaking into Show business… well, just theatre really…” Giacomo began his note.

“If you woulda told me then, that 15 years later i’d be sitting here. In this position, at this age. Living out my dreams, doing what I love every day. I woulda told you, you were nuts 🥜,” Giacomo added.” Time sure does fly when you’re having fun. Here’s to another 15. Who knows where I’ll be standing then. Thanks to Julie Wong for a great script, my wise sage of a mentor in @therealdebbieallen and everyone at @greysabc that I love so dearly. You guys are family.

He concluded, “Aaaaaaaaaaaaand ACTION! 🎬.”

The episode that Giacomo is directing will be titled “Sorry Doesn’t Always Make It Right.”

Jesse Williams Reveals His Thoughts On When 'Grey's Anatomy' Will End

Jesse Williams is weighing in on the rumors that Grey’s Anatomy could be ending with seasons 17.

The 39-year-old actor, who plays Dr. Jackson Avery on the long-running show, spoke to Entertainment Tonight about the series ahead of its’ return in March.

“I think the show is too important to go out without a damn parade,” Jesse says, even when considering the effects of the pandemic. “Without us really knowing and having a real finale season where these writers are so overworked and depressed and in a rat race to try and get material out without all this uncertainty, that’s not the ideal scenario.”

He added, “I think they, and all of us, kind of deserve to have the time and space to map out how to end. It’s just a flattering way of saying I hope not.”

Jesse isn’t the only Grey’s star to open up about the show’s potential end.

Ellen Pompeo did too, and here’s what she said…

During the conversation, the actor opened up about his decision to pass on the role of Dr. Derek Shepherd on Grey’s Anatomy, which ultimately went to Patrick Dempsey.

“This is what longevity, experience and recovery give you. There are no accidents. Whatever decision you come to, if you come to it from the right place, it’s never wrong,” he said of his decision to star in the short-lived Dr. Vegas instead.

“Me in that part isn’t as interesting as Patrick in that part. If it’d been me [the fans] wouldn’t have called me ‘McDreamy,’ they would have called me Rob Lowe,” he went on to say.

“Had I done Grey’s, I wouldn’t have been in Parks and Recreation. That alone for me is enough.”

Rob Lowe also got candid about being sober for 30 years.

Katherine Heigl Reflects on Leaving 'Grey's Anatomy' & What She Regrets Not Doing Sooner

Katherine Heigl is looking back.

“I don’t think you get through life without any regrets, but you can create some purpose from it,” she said while reflecting on her career as a whole.

Following her 2007 Emmy win, she withdrew her name from contention for a repeat nomination, saying she “did not feel that I was given the material this season to warrant” a nomination, which led to a reputation for being “difficult” in Hollywood amid other incidents.

“I know there’s a better way to deal with those things than I did. I could have handled it with more grace,” she said.

“I don’t actually regret leaving Grey’s Anatomy — I did the right thing for me and for my family — but I do regret the heightened drama I was feeling at that time. If I’d known anything about meditation then, or had been talking to a therapist or someone to help me through some of the fear that I was steeped in, I think I would have been more calm in how I approached what boundaries I needed to create to thrive,” she continued.

“I certainly regret not learning earlier how to manage my anxiety better. Living at that heightened level of anxiety…created a defensiveness in me and wariness and assuming that people were against me. I let my mind run rampant without the tools to properly manage that,” she went on to say.

“The last five years has been really about learning how to manage that anxiety and to control my own thoughts. I learned that not managing stress leads to not dealing with negativity or frustration or disappointment in the proper way.”

She also further reflected on being labeled “difficult.”

Here's How Katherine Heigl Feels About How Alex Karev Was Written Out Of 'Grey's Anatomy'

Katherine Heigl is calling out the storyline that involved Alex going back to Izzie at the end of season 16 of Grey’s Anatomy.

The 42-year-old actress, who played Izzie from season one until season six, when the character was written out as Alex (Justin Chambers) refused to resume their marriage.

Katherine had asked to be written out of the show in order to spend more time with her family at that time.

In a new interview, Katherine gave her thoughts about the recent storyline, which had Alex leaving his new wife, Jo, to be with Izzie and their twin children.

“I didn’t see it,” Katherine revealed to ET, but did recall that Alex was with Jo. “Listen, isn’t that an a**hole move?”

Previously, showrunner Krista Vernoff explained why that was the only logical choice of Alex’s exit.

“At the end of the day, there were three choices,” she shared with TVLine. “Kill Alex off camera; have Alex be alive and in Seattle — and still married to Jo — and we just never see him; or [reunite him] with Izzie.”

Katherine also revealed if she’d return to the long running series at all.

“I’m super focused on this show and my passion for it,” she shared of Firefly Lane. “I would never say never but it’s not likely.”

ABC Moves 'Grey's Anatomy's Return Back A Week in March

The return of Grey’s Anatomy has been delayed.

The long running show, which is currently in its 17th season, was originally slated to return on March 4. Now though, the show is set to return just one week later on March 11.

The show took its mid-season break in the the middle of December, and just as the season hit the climax with Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) battling COVID-19 and slipping in and out of her medically induced coma.

“It’s not something that we take lightly and we don’t want to feel like Meredith is being let off the hook too easily,” executive producer Andy Reaser shared. “The virus keeps everyone guessing and it’s relentless, so it’s going to take relentlessness to fight it.”

In addition to Grey’s moving a week, Station 19 will also move with it before going to its regular time slot on Wednesdays.

Grey’s Anatomy will return on Thursday, March 11 at 8/7c on ABC.

'Grey's Anatomy' Boss Reveals If Patrick Dempsey Will Return This Season

Patrick Dempsey made a miraculous return to Grey’s Anatomy earlier this season, as Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) went into a comatose state on the show due to coronavirus.

The 54-year-old actor reappeared as Derek Shepherd in Meredith’s COVID dreams, after he perished in season 11 following a tragic car accident.

In a new interview with Variety, showrunner Krista Vernoff revealed again that Derek aka “McDreamy” will be seen “again in the back half of the season.”

Previously, she had stated that there were plans to have him in three more times throughout season 17.

Krista also addressed rumors that more of the original stars, like Eric Dane, Sara Ramirez and even Sandra Oh, would be returning this season with cameos.

“We all have hopes, but we don’t have anything new to report yet,” she shared, specifically about Eric‘s Mark Sloan.

For the other rumors, Krista added that the cast list featured on IMDb was “some glitch”, and most of them would not be appearing.

During the mid-season finale this week, viewers saw Meredith slip back into a comatose state following a COVID high she experienced that had her saving the life of a patient before she collapsed on the hospital floor.
