“I’d consider it,” Williams exclusively told Entertainment Tonight. “He still exists in the world of the show. So, yeah, it’s totally a possibility.”
On the sixth season of Grey’s Anatomy, Williams made his first appearance as Jackson Avery. After the Mercy West and Seattle Grace Hospital merger, Avery (who was a surgical intern at the time) was joined by other new faces like Dr. April Kepner (played by Sarah Drew) and more. The actor played the role for over 12 seasons until announcing his official departure toward the end of season 17.
Back in May, the 40-year-old actor shared a final farewell letter to his Instagram page. "As an actor, director and person, I have been obscenely lucky to learn so much from so many and I thank our beautiful fans, who breathe so much energy and appreciation into our shared worlds," he said at the time. “I am immensely proud of our work, our impact and to be moving forward with this array of tools, allies, opportunities and dear friends. Gratitude and love, now and forever.”
Since leaving the ABC series, Williams has remained booked and busy. He is set to play a pro baseball player named Darren Lemming in the Broadway revival, Take Me Out. Originally written by Richard Greenberg, the play tackles racial and homophobic stigmas in the sports world.
