Grey’s Anatomy star Jessica Capshaw hasn’t ruled out Sara Ramirez ever returning to the show.
Talking to TVLine, Capshaw reckons that despite her character Arizona Robbins getting in a relationship with Eliza Minnick (Marika Dominczyk), we could still see the return of Arizona’s ex Callie Torres, played by Ramirez.
“I feel like nothing is impossible. There’s a great chance she would come back for something,” she believed.
However, a return for Dr Torres seems unlikely given Ramirez’s calling out ABC last month for airing a joke about bisexual people on sitcom The Real O’Neals, which led to a petition accusing the network of biphobia.
Ramirez, who identifies as bisexual, urged her followers on Twitter to sign the petition, adding that “WORDS MATTER”.
“And as someone who worked 4 them 4 10+ years, am truly disheartened & disappointed quite frankly. I will invest my brand where I’m respected,” she added, asking the network to “empower our queer and bisexual youth & community”.
Ramirez left Grey’s Anatomy last year to take “some welcome time off”.
“I’m deeply grateful to have spent the last 10 years with my family at Grey’s Anatomy and ABC. Shonda’s been so incredible to work for, and we will definitely continue our conversations,” she wrote in a farewell statement.
Grey’s Anatomy airs on ABC in the US and Sky Living in the UK.
