GREY'S ANATOMY star T.R. KNIGHT's request to quit the hit medical drama three years before his contract expires has reportedly been granted by show boss Shonda Rhimes.
Sources tell Entertainment Weekly magazine Knight had grown tired of his character's lack of good storylines and asked series creator Rhimes to let him leave.
His character, George O'Malley, appeared to die in the final episode of the most recent season of the show.
The actor's experience on the series has provided career and personal highs and lows - fans loved his character but he was was forced to 'come out' as a gay man after former co-star Isaiah Washington referred to him as a "f**got" during an on-set fight with castmate Patrick Dempsey in October 2006.
