Grey’s Anatomy has seen a new close friendship emerge over the past couple of seasons, but don’t expect to see Meredith and Alex hook up any time soon.
Ellen Pompeo, who plays Meredith on the ABC medical drama, told TVLinethat she doesn’t see the two characters together romantically.
“I think they’re too close,” she said. “Too much like brother and sister.
“I have super-close friends who I’m not romantically attracted to at all. So I think just because you’re so in love with someone in one way doesn’t mean it’s a romantic love. But they certainly do understand each other a lot.”
That doesn’t mean Pompeo would be against Shonda Rhimes pairing them up, if that’s what the creator wants to do.
“Ultimately, it doesn’t really matter what I think,” she explained. “This is Shonda’s show and whatever path she chooses to go down creatively, I’m with her.
“I’m going to give it my all. I trust her vision. We’ve been a great team so far.”
