Kevin McKidd has no plans to leave Grey's Anatomy just because Sandra Oh, his longtime onscreen love interest, is exiting at the end of the medical drama's upcoming 10th season.
The actor, who joined the Shonda Rhimes drama in season five, is interested in exploring more of Dr. Owen Hunt's story -- without the support system the character has had in Oh's Dr. Cristina Yang.
"Pain is sometimes close to pleasure, and there's a lot of pain here," McKidd tells The Hollywood Reporterof his co-star's upcoming exit. "But there will be pleasure again to explore that."
Here, McKidd talks with THR about learning his co-star was leaving, hopes for Cristina and Owen, and how he'd wrap up Dr. Yang's 10-season journey.
