Grey’s Anatomy star, Sarah Drews (April Kepner) talked to Wetpaint where she teased about her character’s return in Seattle Grace after going rural in her farm house. Check out the excerpts we grabbed from their conversation below!

How will April act around the interns?

I’m just starting to get to work with some of the interns and it’s really funny. This episode right now I’m sort of being a hard ass, I think everybody of coming into their own skin a bit about being attendings and being in charge of other people. So she’s having fun with it but there’s also the potential for it to go to her head a bit. As per usual, Ms. April.

Will we dive into April’s faith more this season and, if so, how will it play into her job at Seattle Grace?

It will definitely play into it. She is now much more open about what she believes and how all the choices she makes are affected by what she believes. So we’ll see her kind of struggling with some guilt here and there and I think there’s a fun storyline soon that affects patients also. I haven’t read that script yet but I think there’s going to be something they’re going to dive into. I think they really want to tell a story about someone with faith that’s not the typical “Let’s bash the Christian,” because I feel like that happens a lot on television. But I think they really want to tell a very true story that feels authentic to a Christian experience.

So this season April will be diving into Christianity and wedding planning, great!

I’m not saying she’s planning a wedding – all I’m telling you is what is already on the internet, which is that Jackson, says, “Do you want to get married?” That’s all I’m saying.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ season 9 airs every Thursday on ABC.
