What can you tell us about the episode—titled "Don't Deceive Me (Please Don't Go)"—you directed?
Mark (Eric Dane) has things to deal with Lexie (Chyler Leigh), like how's he going to tell her about Callie's (Sara Ramirez) pregnancy. That plays out in a big way. Also, Mark has things to deal with Lexie, like how's he going to tell her about Callie's pregnancy—that plays out in a big way.
The episode revolves around the very first day of Derek Shepherd's (Patrick Dempsey) clinical trial for Alzheimer's, which then plays out for the rest of the season. The trial very important to Derek.
That's the framework, and also during that day Callie has a meltdown—her hormones are up. She's very anxious…about how things are going to go down with Arizona and Mark. So she has an OB doctor, Rachael Taylor, who is a new castmember—Callie drives her around the bend because Callie basically becomes hypochondriac, which is very funny but also very touching and moving.
How much acting do you do in the episode?
They wrote my character to basically be at the dentist for most of the episode which is great, so I got a chance to take the foot off the gas—I did have to act in one scene.
Do you get to direct Sandra Oh as Cristina in this episode? Is she fully back on her feet?
She's back, she's healthy again, and she's not paralyzed in the way that she was, and it's fun. She's back and fighting, pushing people out of the way to get into an OR, all that stuff. It's great to see Cristina back to her old tricks.

How did your fellow castmembers react to you being behind the camera?
Everyone in the cast, everyone, came up to me and they were just so supportive. Patrick [Dempsey] said to me, 'I've got your back.'
Everyone knows it's a lot of stress and you've taken on a whole new thing and there are millions of dollars riding on your shoulders and all that stuff—and everybody was amazing and I am very thankful to all of them. They just came to work and just supported me in the most loving way, and I will be eternally grateful to all of them for that, I have to say.
What's it like behind the scenes these days?
It's really a very good place to come to work. We all have other actor friends, a lot of people in this industry are finding it hard to get work because of the economy, so we all are very painfully aware of how lucky we are, and we're just blessed to come to work every day and get to act and get to do the thing we love so.
Everybody has their lives, a lot of people have kids, and it's almost like we all come to work and have fun catching up with each other and find out how things are going with each other...it's almost like a getaway from our real lives. That's the way it should be—being an actor is all about make-believe and about transporting yourself from this real world, and that's what I love about acting. I think it's a really fun and healthy and warm place to work.
Where did your directing ambition start—have you done it before? How did you approach the executive producers with your interest?
I have worked with some great directors, I've been very lucky over the years to watch some great directors make real visions come alive, but I've always been too busy really as an actor to pursue it. But I approached [the Grey's Anatomy producers] about a year and a half ago to ask if I could shadow directors maybe and start to learn. So I did that and then they said, look, we have these webisodes and we would like you to direct some.
I think the webisodes were my tryout or my audition, and it seems like I passed it because they offered me an episode pretty quickly after that.
I feel very lucky about how it's all gone. I am still pinching myself.
What elements of this episode are you most proud of as a director?
Everyone, including the guest stars, gives good performances, and I am very pleased with the teaser, this little two-minute sequence before the title card comes up. And I am also very pleased with the montage of act five and the montage of act six, where the music kicks in. I am just really pleased with how those all came out emotionally and the transitions from scene to scene, how all that edited together in the way that I hoped it would—I'm proud of those moments.
How do you want to see the Callie baby drama play out? Will you miss Owen while he's out with his dental problem? Hit the comments.
Be sure to tune in to Grey's Anatomy on ABC next Thursday at 9 p.m. for Kevin McKidd's television directorial debut, "Don't Deceive Me (Please Don't Go)."

Kevin McKidd Reveals Songs from the Grey's Musical Episode
Jan 27, 2011 03:21 PM ET
by Natalie Abrams Kevin McKidd Grey's Anatomy's upcoming musical episode is sure to bring back fond memories, if the show's set list is any indication.
As we first speculated, the musical episode will feature songs made popular by the medical series, like The Fray's "How to Save a Life" and Snow Patrol's "Chasing Cars," which were both featured in the second season.
Kevin McKidd tells TVGuide.com that he'll be involved in both of those numbers, as well as singing Gomez's "How We Operate," which was heard in the penultimate episode of Season 2, "Deterioration of the Fight or Flight Response."
"We're in the studio right now," McKidd says. "I did my recording [Wednesday]. I've got quite a big couple of numbers. It's a one-off episode in Callie's point of view. It's very dramatic. It's a very intense episode. It's not going to be jazz hands and glitter balls."
Though fans have been nervous that the show may be jumping the shark by doing a musical episode, McKidd insists that it's "a love letter to the fans." "It's very exciting and quite experimental. I think it's great that the show has taken such a bold move to do something like this, and I think it's going to work in a big way."
Grey's Anatomy returns with new episodes Thursday, Feb. 3 at 9/8c on ABC.
All aboard for a special screening of Trainspotting
Published Date: 27 January 2011 By LIAM RUDDEN Arts and Entertainment editor
CHOOSE life! By introducing cinema audiences to Renton, Spud, Sick Boy, Tommy, Begbie and Diane, Trainspotting showcased the talents of Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Johnny Lee Miller, Kevin McKidd, Robert Carlyle and Kelly Macdonald, making them international stars in the process.
That was 15 years ago, and on Wednesday that milestone will be celebrated with a special one-off screening of the cult Edinburgh-set movie at the Royal Scottish Academy, which features in the background of the unforgettable opening chase scene in which Renton, played by McGregor, runs down Princes Street.
On the off chance that you have managed to avoid Trainspotting for the last decade and a half, the action centres around the exploits of heroin addict Mark Renton.
Deeply immersed in the Edinburgh drug scene, he decides to clean up, kick his smack habit and get out, despite the allure of the drugs and influence of friends who are quite happy to just party. It's an escape that finds Renton mixed up in drug deals, armed robbery and prostitution as he battles to get straight.
Directed by Danny Boyle, of Slumdog Millionaire fame, and based on the Irvine Welsh (pictured) novel of the same name, Trainspotting was ranked tenth by the British Film Institute in its list of Top 100 British films of all time.
Exposing the underbelly of an 80s Edinburgh regarded by many as the 'heroin capital of Europe,' the film not only launched its young cast on the road to stardom but made Welsh a household name, thanks in no small part to the controversy that surrounded its release.
Wednesday's screening is the third free event in Volkswagen's See Film Differently series.
The event is free but ticketed, with tickets available through an on-line draw. For the chance to win you need to log on to www.seefilmdifferently.com now. Tickets will be available until midday tomorrow, after which winners will be informed.
The event follows original location screenings of An American Werewolf In London, which was held inside London Zoo, and gangster classic Get Carter, shown at Newcastle Racecourse, both notable locations featured in the films.
Turning the camera on the locations featured in Trainspotting offers movie fans an immersive cinema experience designed to provide a behind the scenes-style insight into the BAFTA award winning favourite.
After the screening, viewers will be invited to follow Renton's route to Calton Road, where the opening chase ended with McGregor being hit by a car.
There, the Ingleby Gallery will host an exclusive exhibition featuring rare Trainspotting stills, original promotional material and photography, along with a live DJ set featuring music from the movie.
And just in case you are wondering why there are no references to train spotting in the movie, well, here's your answer. The title is taken from a scene from the novel in which Begbie and Renton meet a drunken dosser who turns out to be Begbie's estranged father, in the long-closed Leith Central railway station (now the site of Waterworld and Tesco), at the foot of Leith Walk – the drunk asks them if they are trainspotting.
15th Anniversary Screening of Trainspotting, Royal Scottish Academy, The Mound, free but ticketed - tickets courtesy of Volkswagen.
