It's been nine years since Katherine Heigl left the cast of Grey's Anatomy. Meanwhile, Heigl is part of another series and currently stars in Suits. But would the actress consider a return to the popular medical drama?

Katherine Heigl (40) is known to all Grey's Anatomy fans as "Dr. Izzie Stevens". In 2010, she left the series and turned to new projects, including the series Suits. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Heigl recently talked about a possible comeback to the medical drama.

"I don't know. I don't know if I would or if I wouldn’t," Heigl said. "I almost feel like that would almost be distracting again to, sort of, what they've done with that show in the seven years since I left... and what that's become and what it is to the fans now. It must feel like it would just be kind of like, 'Yeah, we already let that go...why are you here?'" the actress added.

Katherine played the role of "Izzie Stevens" on Grey's Anatomy for six seasons.

"I haven't (thought about Izzie) in years", she explained. And the actress added that she didn't know if she'd ever return to Grey's Anatomy. Heigl quit the extremely successful series in 2010, but since then the fans have had to cope with more great characters leaving the show. Among others, Patrick Dempsey, Sandra Oh and Sarah Drew have since left Grey's Anatomy.
