‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Writers Switched Up A Season 14 Storyline After It Leaked Online

Season 14 of “Grey’s Anatomy” almost looked a lot different.

According to executive producer Krista Vernoff, a love interest for Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) was switched out after word of the new character leaked online.

“[TVLine’s] Michael Ausiello found out that we were casting a European scientist as a potential love interest for Meredith,” Vernoff told Entertainment Weekly in an interview. “When that got leaked, I went into the writers’ room and said, ‘That’s not interesting to me anymore. What else could this character be?’”

So they changed things up, “That character became Marie Cerone [Rachel Ticotin], the old friend of Meredith’s mom [Kate Burton],” she said.

Adding, “It was a much more interesting story than some temporary love interest. We changed it because we wanted to thwart expectations.”

“Grey’s Anatomy” aired their season 15 finale last month.
