Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter about how Teddy handled Henry’s death, she said: “When Teddy first came to Seattle Grace, we talked about how she lost her best friend.
“She was this unbelievable top cardiothoracic surgeon in New York and just gave that up when she lost her best friend and went to Iraq.
“My bet is that she’s not going to be a puddle on the floor.
“This is her first true love, I don’t know how she’s going to get through that but I think she might mask that with really working and not being able to deal with it.”
The character of Teddy is still very much part of Grey’s Anatomy and had moved on since Henry’s death.
She has had numerous love interests and was most recently caught up in a love triangle involving her fiancé Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) and Tom Koracick (Greg Germann).
Owen later ended his engagement with Teddy after discovering her dalliance with Tom.
Grey’s Anatomy airs on ABC on Thursdays at 9/8c
