As a surgical intern on Grey’s Anatomy,
Katherine Heigl is learning how to operate - onscreen and off.
Do the makeup artists have to help the actors look tired?
No! We have 14 - or 16 - hour days, so they just let us
deteriorate. Sometimes it kills me because I love to get dolled
Have you seen real operations?
I watched an open-heart surgery. We stood looking into the
woman's chest cavity, and it wasn’t gross at all.
You also starred in Roswell - any strange comments
I dated my co-star on Roswell. He played my brother, and
it really upset the fans. I couldn't understand why they didn’t
get that we were actors playing roles.
Any downsides to playing a doctor?
You become a bit of a hypochondriac, thinking, I have nine out
of ten of these symptoms.
