It's been 7 years since actress Katherine Heigl was on the hit TV show Grey's Anatomy, but some fans of the show are still keen to see the actress reprise her role as Dr Izzie Stevens.

Since leaving the show Katherine has had a slew of successful movies and more recently is starring on the TV show Suits.

In a recent interview with ET the star opened up about how she feels about a potential return to the Seatle Grace hospital.

When asked if she would return to the show for whenever its final ever episode takes place, she said it would be a 'tough decision to make'.

"I haven't [thought about Izzie] in years. I don't know. I don't know if I would or if I wouldn’t," she continued. "I almost feel like that would almost be distracting again to, sort of, what they've done with that show in the seven years since I left... and what that's become and what it is to the fans now."

"It must feel like it would just be kind of like, 'Yeah, we already let that go... why are you here?'" Katherine concluded.

So for fans still holding out hope for a return, this might be enough to put those dreams to rest.
