TV Guide Magazine: Fans were so invested in Lexie and Mark [Eric Dane] as a couple and so devastated by her death that some have expressed a desire for Mark to die as well and join her in the afterlife. What are your feelings on this?
Leigh: The roller coaster between them was always very dynamic and I think realistic. When it comes to death we never know the date or the hour. There is absolute shock value to that. As far as their relationship, it was in some ways very young. So Rachel and Ross [from Friends]. It’s so hard to put a pin in what went wrong or how it could have gone better. But will Mark go on? Absolutely. He’ll move right along. That’s just what Mark Sloane does. But initially I hope there will be a devastation.
