Katherine to Take a Grey's Hiatus

The rumors are kind of true — Katherine Heigl (left, picture courtesy ABC) is leaving Grey's Anatomy, but only temporarily. The 30-year-old actress is taking a hiatus from the medical drama to film the rom-com Life as We Know It. While the time frame is not official, she is expected to be gone from Grey's for five episodes.

According to an ABC rep: "Katherine is taking time off to film a movie. The producers at Grey's have accommodated past things like that before. It's a cast of 13 and it is a true ensemble, so the show is mindful [of other commitments]."

Katherine's time off might coincide with star Ellen Pompeo's maternity leave, as she is due to give birth in October. The writers at Grey's are working on accommodating the overlap.
