Directing Sandra

A tidbit from Kevin McKidd from an interview with Backstage on directing his first episode and directing Sandra (or is it the other way around):

Sandra Oh with director Eric Stoltz and co-star Kevin McKidd
on the set of Grey's Anatomy in 2008.

Back Stage: Did you get any flak from [onscreen wife] Sandra Oh?

McKidd: The whole crew and cast were so supportive. They could have easily acted out. They all knew that it's a big deal and it's a lot of responsibility and I didn't want to screw up. There was a point with Sandra where I was trying to nudge her into being slightly melodramatic in a certain moment. She was like, "Whoa, whoa, Kevin. No, no." Because she knows that I wouldn't have liked that direction if I was doing it. So, we had a joke about that.
