Weeks before it was announced that Isaiah Washington would return to Grey’s Anatomy, theJasmineBRAND.com chatted with the 50-year-old actor. Promoting his two more recent projects Blackbird and Blue Caprice, he was quite candid about a number of topics including his relationship with Shonda Rhimes, his biggest regret in Hollywood and of course being axed from Grey’s Anatomy. Check out a few excerpts below, along with the full interview. 
Part 1

Part 2

Biggest Lesson He’s Learned in Hollywood

Don’t drink at the Golden Globes. Not for four hours especially when you’re under great stress and duress. Not a good idea, not a good idea.

If He Misses Grey’s Anatomy
You Know what, Im not going to speak on that. I saw Shonda recently and all I can say is it’s all love.
His Thoughts on Shonda Rhimes
Thats my girl, she’s going to always be my girl. I don’t care what y’all say…People forget, she fought for me but I’m not expecting her to give up a $10 million check because people are mad..ya’ know? But that relationship isn’t over. It ain’t over.
Craziest Rumor He’s Heard About Himself
That I’m homophobic.
What Every Man Should Try At Least Once In His Life 
Kissing another man.

Last week, we reported that on his Grey’s return, he’ll play his initial character Dr. Preston Burke and say farewell to Sandra Oh, who played Cristina and was engaged to his character. Shonda said in a statement:

It’s important to me that Cristina’s journey unfolds exactly as it should. Burke is vital to that journey — he gives her story that full-circle moment we need to properly say goodbye to our beloved Cristina Yang.

Reportedly, he will guest star for a May episode.

    Awesome coverage Jasmine! I miss him on the show, I understand what he did was not right but you see white actors do more disgraceful things in their personal lives that it seemed unfair to let him go for that reason. I’m now even more motivated to catch up on Grey’s! Love that show! #206Native Seattle stand up!
