Melissa George Leaves Grey's Anatomy

Publish date:

One of my least favorite actresses is leaving one of my favorite shows. Melissa George let the cat out of the bag at the Golden Globe Awards, revealing that she'll be leaving Grey's Anatomy. I've never understood the appeal of George as an actress. Maybe my not understanding has something to do with the fact that she starred opposite John Stamos in Thieves, a show with a great premise where she just didn't live up to the character. It might also have been her unnecessary arrival on one of my favorite, kick butt shows, Alias.

George definitely wasn't needed on this season of Grey's Anatomy, a show that seems to be casting names for names sake as of late. Maybe getting rid of George will let the show focus on its other George, portrayed by T.R. Knight?
