DO catch up with hunky actor Jason George
The doctor is in! And our pulses are racing.
Do you still enjoy Grey’s Anatomy after six seasons of playing Dr Ben Warren? I feel as if I’ve won the lottery of lotteries because everyone involved – cast, crew, writers and directors – are such good people and so talented. How was your first day on the Grey’s set? There’s the nervousness that comes from caring about what you do, and that gets you energised. Then there’s the nervousness where you overdo things. On my first day of working with Chandra Wilson, I got closer to the latter than I’d like to admit! What’s it like being with the other cast members? Chandra and I joke around, and I tease her every chance I get. Sara Ramirez is always good for a laugh (and she has a great laugh). Kevin Mckidd is one of the most downto-earth people you’d ever want to have a beer with. And Giacomo Gianniotti shares my warped sense of humour! Do people call you Dr Ben when they recognise you? I usually get “Dr Ben” or “Bailey’s husband”. How was it acting with Halle Berry on the thriller Kidnap? Halle is one of the most beautiful women on the planet, but I was impressed by how humble she is. Not to mention smart and so fun. What did you learn from working with her? I watched Halle give 110% in physically demanding scenes, take after take. Many actresses would have stopped after a certain point and said, “We’ve got it.” Halle is proof that success doesn’t have to make you soft or lazy.
