Kevin McKidd tells us about Dr. Hunt of Grey's Anatomy
We met the Scottish actor at the Roma Fiction Fest 2010, where he presented the season finale of Grey's Anatomy, the ABC series in which he plays Dr. Owen Hunt, deepening the most moving/exciting and fun moments of this experience and remembering his past on the set of Trainspotting.
He is one of the most recent arrivals to the rich cast of Grey's Anatomy, but Kevin McKidd is certainly not the last: one only need look at his filmography to note how varied and career his career has been to date. Scottish by birth, it is precisely from the United Kingdom that the actor took his first steps in acting, from the set of the phenomenon that was Danny Boyle’s Trainspotting, appearing in the following years in television and film productions, both English and American, and even finding the time to lend his voice to some video games in recent years such as Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, in which he played the captain "Soap" MacTavish.
From Ridley Scott’s Kingdom of Heaven and Hannibal Lecter, to the recent role of Poseidon in Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, via the directorial debut of Neil Marshall, the horror movie Dog Soldiers, his appearances on the big screen are not few, while on TV, before becoming Dr Owen Hunt in Grey’s Anatomy in 2008, he had the role of Lucius Vorenus in Rome and the protagonist in that unfortunate series Journeyman, defeated by ratings and in part by the writers' strike.
In our meeting we recalled the experience with Boyle on Trainspotting, the difficulties at the beginning and his passion for music, but we couldn’t explore the experience on the set of Seattle Grace Hospital, from the most exciting moments to the most fun, without looking to the future of his character.
