"I said I was not going to go to Hollywood, but Hollywood finally came to me and put me on a platter, although it took fifteen years," McKidd said in a meeting with international media in London.
After participating in the hit "Trainspotting" (1996), the Danny Boyle movie that launched the careers of actors like Ewan McGregor and Robert Carlyle, McKidd raised the possibility of going to Hollywood, which immediately ruled out because "he was too young and too green. "

For McKidd, who only years later was raised to go to Los Angeles, Boyle's film allowed him to work on other independent projects that still feels "proud" and that allowed him to improve their skills performing in films.
Nevertheless, the Scottish actor believes that, as an actor you have to go "to where your career takes you", and can not say "never do that."
In this sense, McKidd confessed that give life to Dr. Owen Hunt, an orthopedic surgeon who arrives at Seattle Grace Hospital after serving in the Iraq war as an option rather was, a priori, the idea of a role ideal.
But finally agreed to participate in "Grey's Anatomy" and, after an intense work of documentation, decided that the character was dominated by the trauma of war, what for him was a "great opportunity" as an actor.
"I could not go to war, but had a lot of information available to me: I read biographies of doctors who were in Iraq or Afghanistan, I met families of soldiers and surgeons psychologically destroyed by war and I know that the return to civilian world, the trauma of these people is very intense and that's what we try to reflect, "he explains.
The actor believes that when you suffer a trauma of this magnitude, "will always be with you, because even if you learn to cope and get ahead with your life, remain a part of your experiences."
Now assumes its role as Owen Hunt as "a responsibility" because it has realized that "there really is a war" and that he has to represent "all those people who have to learn to cope in some way."
He declined to elaborate on the developments of "Grey's Anatomy" next season, which will be the seventh of this series that began its journey in 2005, it moved that the writers "get to overcome the shocking finale" of the last chapter the sixth "to surprise again to everyone." EFE
