If you're still missing Katherine Heigl on "Grey's Anatomy," you're not alone. The actress says that while she, too, misses her character Dr. Izzie Stevens, she doesn't plan on ever returning to the hit TV series.
"That chapter is closed, and it's sad, and it's hard," 31-year-old Heigl admitted to MTV.
Though fans might have been hoping that Izzie – who has been MIA since leaving both Seattle Grace Hospital and husband Alex in January - would pop up again to tie up loose ends, Heigl said they shouldn't hold their breath.
"I can't think of any way that she could come back gracefully that wouldn't just feel manipulative," said the star, who left the ABC show to focus on being mom to Naleigh, the daughter she adopted with singer hubby Josh Kelley. "And, it's hard, because I really wonder what she's doing and where she is and what happened, but that is over for me now."
