Now that Owen and Amelia are married what comes next? We got the chance to speak to Grey's Anatomy star Kevin McKidd to find out what's in store for the Hunts in Season 13.
Grey's Anatomy Season 12 ended with Owen and Amelia's wedding, which we didn't think would actually happen when Ameila, Meredith and Maggie ran away from the church. Owen and Amelia's relationship was very up and down, but they both realized that they do in fact want to be with one another. Caterina Scorsone, who plays Amelia, previewed what's next for Mr. and Mrs. Owen Hunt in Grey's Anatomy Season 13, saying that they're a family now and both characters seem like people who would fight hard for their family. We caught up with Owen actor, Kevin McKidd, at the Monte-Carlo Television Festival and tried to glean from him what we could about Grey's Season 13 and Owen and Amelia's future. Speaking about whether the couple will get their happily ever after, McKidd said: "I hope so! Owen went through a lot with Christina. She didn't want to give him a baby, they had a lot of struggles, and then she left essentially. So I think he deserves to be happy, don't you?" We sure do Kevin! Check out the full interview below.
As for Season 13, McKidd stayed pretty coy and maintained that he knows nothing. The writers are currently in the writers' room coming up with the new storylines, so the actors are still in the dark regarding the fate of their characters. McKidd also spoke about showrunner Shonda Rhimes' incredible success, saying: "She seems to have her finger on the pulse of what fans really want to see. It's like a sixth sense or inner voice where she trusts her own instincts and does things sometimes where you think, 'Amelia and Owen getting married it seems rushed,' and all these things that happen, but usually her instincts are always dead on and they make for great television. She listens to her instincts more than anyone I know that works in TV, and she trusts her instincts." You go Shonda! Keep on making that TV magic for us. In other news, ABC recently released its fall schedule and Grey's Anatomy Season 13 will premiere on Thursday, September 22. Do you hope to see Owen and Amelia get their happily ever after?
