Jesse Williams spoke EXCLUSIVELY with HL about the possibility of returning to ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ in season 18, which is why he stopped guessing when the final season will be, and his special partnership with Subaru.
Jesse Williams left grey’s Anatomy in season 17 after playing Dr. Jackson Avery since 2009, but he has not closed the door for a return in the future. The long-running series returns for season 18 on September 30th. HollywoodLife spoke EXCLUSIVELY with Jesse about bringing Jackson back in season 18.
“That’s a good question. I sincerely do not know. I wanted to be open to it, ”Jesse said HollywoodLife while promoting his partnership with Subaru. “I love my people there, my character, and it could be really cool to check in and see what he and April are doing. I would definitely be interested in that. ”Jackson and April moved to Boston with Harriet to take over the foundations of his family.
The series is already the longest running medical drama in history. Every year, fans wonder if this could be the final season. Jesse admitted he no longer guesses when the show will end. “I’m stopped guessing since I joined in 2009 or whatever,” he said. “Justin Chambers will always say, ‘Two more years. I think we have two more years. ‘It was every year and it’s now year 18. There’s no stopping that monster until it feels like it. Shows just do not last that long. They do not have the material and the foundation to build on like that Shonda [Rhimes] created and Krista keeps life inside so I have too much respect for the engine to guess it. ”
The actor has teamed up with Subaru to support Subaru Loves Learning, the education-focused initiative from Subaru Loves Promise. Jesse explained that Subaru and its dealers “supply school supplies and teaching materials to over 100,000 students in resource communities and schools who spoke directly to my life as a young student in Chicago, frankly, as well as the teachers in schools where they have drastic resources. I know the direct effect [as a former teacher]. It is very tangible for me to be peer-to-peer, but also as a teacher who just does not have supplies or time, space and the other resources that students need to not be distracted, not keep up with themselves and their tasks, and the shame that comes with it and all these things we face. What we think of as basic school supplies is not available to students in 92% of the classrooms. There are people who simply do not have these resources, and Subaru jumps right in by handing out material that is absolutely crucial to student performance. A very overlooked aspect of academic life is insufficient resources in the classroom, so to see a business really rise, engage in a way that I know is real, in a non-superficial way … Their Subaru Loves Learning – program has already proven to be incredibly successful in providing resources that children not only need but they deserve, so it speaks right to a part of my life’s mission as well as my experience. ”
Jesse was actually a teacher before she started acting full time. He revealed that he would like to return to teaching at some point. “I miss it terribly,” he said HollywoodLife. “It’s something I definitely want to find time and place for. It is definitely something I have wanted to do again ever since I left. I have never felt more satisfied than being in the classroom that connects my students. ”
Through partnership with AdoptaClassroom.org, more than 600 Subaru dealers nationwide partner with schools in their communities to ensure better educational outcomes for K-12 students nationwide. You can also visit Subaru.com/Learning for more information.
