Grey's Anatomy > Another Grey's Anatomy Rumor Centers Around Isaiah Washington > Comments Page 2
I just really cannot talk about this any more. Anyone who wishes Burke off of the show is not a true fan of the show because his character is an intricate part of the ethnic and gender balance, not to mention a central character in the story lines. There are mean spirited people who want to take a brief lapse in judgment and turn it into something far more pervasive than it was. Frankly, I don't care who gets along with whom on the set. It probably makes for a better atmosphere if they like each other, but what is important to me is how they interact on screen and that looks perfect to me. I can't believe Isaiah Washington was criticized in one gossip magazine for going home to his wife after he finishes work. Apparently he was suppose to go bar hopping with other single members of the cast. Perhaps that is why his marriage has lasted ten years, because he has his priorities straight. So what if they were uncomfortable on Oprah. Does that mean the fans of the show should lose
I tell you I am getting so sick of this. Have we not already heard thiis. They've already said he's not leaving...Geez! What part of that do they not understand.
So, the other interviews that were done since then are all staged and scripted, too? Is that right? Is that your take on it? Even if the words were scripted by someone at GA trying to do damage control for a small event that was blown out of proportion by disreputable people who like to ruin a good thing because it makes news, the pat on the back that Patrick Dempsey gave Isaiah Washington when they broke for commercial and didn't even know they were still on the air, was not staged. It looked extremely sincere. The commaraderie between Patrick and Isaiah after the interviews in the bar also looked sincere. In addition, these are outstanding actors. If it were scripted, I think they could have done a better job of making it believable. I thought they looked uncomfortable on Oprah, too, and I think they would have all four preferred to talk about the show and their characters and what was in store for the fictional doctors of Seattle Grace than to rehash the same old story. I
I gotta call it as I see it. I totally agree with Michael Ausiello's take on the Oprah interview. It looked staged and scripted to me, and I wasn't buying a minute of it, despite their best efforts.
OK this is not the first thing I want to read when I get off work. Burke Backer I hope your OK because I'm not. I believe it has to be an ugly rumor someone started. I also agree with Bonnie M it has to be another character. They can't take Burke away from Cristina or us. I know some people think were crazy but it is like losing a friend or family member. We have come to truely love these guys. We like bringing them into our homes every week. I mean if someone does have to die sorry but my first choices are Callie or Mark. Please Shonda don't take Burke away from us.
I refuse to believe it until I see it. Isaiah is an important part of the show. He's a great actor and he would be missed to much. I am thinking it might be Adele, Callie, Mark, or maybe even Addison. Ellis is a possibility but there is still alot of story line for her they can use. It would be like losing a family member because we have come to love the characters you look forward to seeing every week.
It had been a really nice day until I read this. Aren't you just so tired of these rumors? Why do they persist? I don't understand it. He is such a good actor and seems like such a nice person. His character does so much to enhance the show. It just wouldn't be the same without him. We've gone through this already and I had hoped it was past and we could concentrate on the direction his character might take on the show. It would be like losing family if he were to die on this show or leave in any other way. Who starts rumors like this and why would they do it?
Burke Backer - I hope you are not having a heart attack right now!!!!!!1
don't worry Burke fans...I don't think he is going anywhere.....
It is okay Burke is sticking with GA.
I just started watching the show after seeing Isaiah Washington on the View. I love the show and I think he is wonderful in the role as Dr. Burke. He is so smooth and interesting! But as fast as I fell in love with him and the show I read the news of him being written off the show.
To read the comments that he is "not going anywhere" has made my life! Many thanks!
If anything they just looked really annoyed to be asked that question AGAIN!!! But Patrick, T.R and Isiaha did look a little uncomfortable mostly because they knew that question was coming up. Leave it to Oprah to always go for those"questions" just so she can get the ratings.
Burke isn't going anywhere. And it's really sad that this "fight" is the most intresting thing of season 3.(speaking of season three, what do you guys think so far).
I feel like it's over-shadowing season three and I wish that people would fine something else to talk about.
you've got to be kidding me! I thought this topic was finally dead!!!!!! Burke isn't going ANYWHERE but to work on the GA set each day. And they all looked FINE on Oprah!
I don't believe for one minute that Burke is giong anywhere. Isaiah is a great actor and very central to this show. Also, I watched Opray (twice) and didn't get the sense that anyone was uncomfortable, either. It appeared to me they were genuine in their discussion of the incident
