Grey's Anatomy's Camilla Luddington Endorses Alex-Jo Romance: 'I Hope I'm the One For Him'

Jan 31 2013, 1:31pm CST | by

CAMILLA LUDDINGTON JUSTIN CHAMBERS Grey's Anatomy Season 9Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes may be on the fence about whether to send Alex and Jo on the fast track to coupledom, but the latter’s portrayer, Camilla Luddington, isn’t.

“Personally, I do hope that it goes that way because I think they would be great together,” the actress tells TVLine. “But who knows? On this show I’ve seen so many people end up dating other people. Now Jackson and Stephanie are together!”

In the following Q&A, Luddington — who joined Grey’s this fall as part of the new wave of interns — explains why Jo has resisted going there with Alex, teases what (and whom) they’ll bond over in future episodes, and reveals what’s standing in the way of her becoming a full-fledged series regular.

TVLINE | What has it been like working with Justin Chambers?
He’s great. He’s nothing like Alex. He’s so sweet. Not guarded. Just lovely./>

TVLINE | Alex’s track record with the ladies is not the greatest.
Oh, yeah. I know. [Laughs] I think he really was in love with Izzie. Who knows where that could have gone? I think he would have stayed with her if [Katherine Heigl] didn’t leave. Since then he’s been guarded with women. And when he has let down that guard he’s gotten hurt. So I kind of get why he isn’t wanting a relationship. And why he’s sleeping with all the interns./>

TVLINE | That explains why he just wants to be friends with Jo. But what about Jo? Does she really only have platonic feelings for him?
I think she really does feel that way right now. She’s just as guarded as him. She’s very protective over this friendship. And I don’t know that she wants to think of it as anything else right now because she doesn’t want to lose it. She really does cherish that relationship. She can trust him; she doesn’t feel like he judges her. He’s her bud./>

TVLINE | Do you think it’s all leading to a romance?
I’ve been trying to get information out of the writers, but they don’t tell us anything. I really don’t know what path it’ll take them. I just know that over the next few episodes they continue to bond./>

TVLINE | What do they bond over?
They bond over Stephanie and Jackson hooking up. They kind of make fun of that. And Jo is working on PEDS with him again, so they are taking cases together. And, of course, there’s a panic right now going on in the hospital; everyone is afraid they’re going to lose their jobs, and that’s something that brings everybody together – including those two. The hospital going under kind of takes over everyone’s emotions and becomes the focal point in the upcoming episodes./>

TVLINE | Any hint of one of them crossing the line coming up?
Honestly, not that I’ve read [in the scripts]. We’re not anywhere near the end of the season though, so I don’t know where the writers will take that./>

TVLINE | Shonda Rhimes did tell me in September that this is the season Alex finds love with someone who won’t leave him…
I read those quotes too. [But] things change all the time. I didn’t even know that Jo was homeless and that had a foster upbringing. That wasn’t mentioned to me until five episodes in. They’re careful about keeping information from us. I am a fan of Grey’s, and I love Alex — as much as he is a jerk. I’ve seen him go through all the peaks and valleys with relationships. So, of course, thought, “God I hope I’m the one for him,” because I love him as a character./>

TVLINE | Grey’s has an option to pick you up as a series regular next season — any idea if they plan to exercise it?
That is not something we will know until we know if even Grey’s is [officially] picked up next season. I definitely think that it will be, but I don’t think anyone can confirm that until they knew that Grey’s is coming back. We all hope [to return] because we love being on the show. But we also know that we could step into an elevator [at Seattle Grace] and die. [Laughs] I don’t  take the job for granted. But I would absolutely love to come back./>
