In an interview with TVLine, the actress says she believes Alex and Meredith make better siblings than sweethearts. “I think they’re too close… too much like brother and sister. I have super-close friends who I’m not romantically attracted to at all. So I think just because you’re so in love with someone in one way doesn’t mean it’s a romantic love. But they certainly do understand each other a lot.”
In a recent TVLine poll, a slight majority of Grey’s fans were in favor of an Alex-Mer love affair. Should series creator Shonda Rhimes opt to go there with the longtime friends and co-workers, Pompeo says she will fully commit to the storyline. “Ultimately, it doesn’t really matter what I think,” she concedes. “This is Shonda’s show and whatever path she chooses to go down creatively, I’m with her. I’m going to give it my all. I trust her vision. We’ve been a great team so far.” (Reporting by Vlada Gelman)
