Jessica Capshaw is finally back on our screens after her character Dr. Arizona Robbins left Grey’s Anatomy in 2018.

And the actress has revealed why her new Netflix rom-com Holidate turned out to be the perfect project for her return to acting – even if some fans of the hospital drama had no idea she’d left.

The film follows singletons Sloane (Emma Roberts) and Jackson (Luke Bracey) after they meet on one particularly bad Christmas and make a pact to be each other’s ‘holidate’ for every festive occasion throughout the next year.

Jessica plays big sister Abby in the comedy flick and speaking to about ‘the irony’ of making her return in a Netflix film.

‘It’s funny, and sort of ironic, that that the first movie that I would do post-Grey’s Anatomy is on Netflix, when that streaming platform is almost singularly the reason why fans still think I’m on Grey’s,’ she told us.

‘Netflix has given birth to this whole another generation of Grey’s viewers and the funniest part of it is that I haven’t been on the show for two years but nobody knows that.’

She laughed: ‘People think I’m still Arizona and I’m still on the show. Nothing has changed.’

The star continued: ‘Before Grey’s, I almost only did comedies. I would do a couple of dramas here and there, but mostly it was comedies.

‘And then you do Grey’s, and it’s 10 years long. While there was certainly a lightness to the character, there was also just on any given day, you’re crying a lot.

‘So some people just think of you that way. What was really fun was the entire time we shot Holidate, it was like no one knew that I could do anything that was funny. They’d be like, “You’re so funny. You are so fun.”‘

Jessica went on: ‘In the beginning of my career, I wanted to be on Saturday Night Live. I wanted to do all the funny stuff.’

We’re very glad to see the mother-of-four certainly got to flex her comedy muscles on set with co-stars including Emma, Luke, Kristin Chenoweth, and Andrew ‘King Bach’ Bachelor.
