The interpreter of Dr. Miranda Bailey has been one of the pillars of the TV series over the years. Independent, quick-witted, and badass, she worked as a surgeon for nearly two decades at Seattle Grace Hospital. When we saw her step down from her position as chief surgeon in the Season 18 finale to focus on her health, we feared we would never see her again. Grey Anatomy. And instead in the new episodes he is continuing to play an important role, mentoring the new interns. In an interview given to Us Weekly said she was very determined to continue playing Miranda Bailey until the end of the tv series. Here are her words:
“I’m daring myself to (stay through the end of the tv series). It’s funny because even though (some actors have been) here for like 13, 14, (seasons), they say they still feel brand new, like they’ve just started. So we are very proud of the environment we have created. Once you’re home, you’re home. We expand. People can leave and do other things, and then they always have somewhere to go back to. This is a sense of pride for us.”
Chandra Wilson he said he loves the environment he created on the set of the TV series with the rest of the cast. Just this also allows the stars who have left the show, like Kate Walshto come back and feel at home again. For this and many other reasons, she explained that she was not at all determined to leave the medical drama for the moment.
