McKidd Eyes Return To Scotland

19 April 2011 9:11 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Grey's Anatomy star Kevin McKidd has been pining for his native Scotland since moving to America, so the actor plans to return to his homeland soon to shoot three movies.

The Scottish actor has been based in Los Angeles with his wife Jane and their two children since he landed a role as Dr. Owen Hunt in the medical drama in 2008.

But he feels increasingly homesick, and is planning to head back to Scotland soon to helm three projects after he fell in love with directing while taking charge of an episode of Grey's Anatomy earlier this year.

McKidd tells the Daily Record newspaper, "I'm hoping to do a low budget film for Sigma Films with (Scottish screenwriter/actress) Andrea Gibb, who I did (2003 film) Afterlife with and who had written an amazing script - like (1983 American drama) The Big Chill but set in Scotland. And (Scottish rocker/filmmaker) Richard Jobson is also trying to get a project off the ground that would be shooting in Grampian, so hopefully they can both come off.

"I'd love to come back to direct some kind of independent film. I'm not sure what that would be yet but I definitely want to do that. Next year there's a Shakespeare play in Scotland I'm working to get made as a movie."

McKidd has also hinted he is eyeing a future behind the camera because his directorial debut for Grey's Anatomy was such a hit, producers have invited him to helm more episodes.

He adds, "I think I did a good job and I was delighted to get the opportunity. They have also asked me back to direct a couple of episodes in season eight, which starts later this year." »
