Station 19 Cast's Real-Life Couples
"Station 19" is a new promising "Grey's Anatomy" spin-off that makes fans want to know more about the personal lives of its cast.
Because of its forward-looking future on-air, "Station 19" actors receive a lot of attention from the public. Get ready because it's gonna get hot!
Whose father used to run background checks on her boyfriends? Who was ready to quit their job to marry their beloved girlfriend? And why has Alberto Frezza left the project? Find out all the answers below.
Boris Kodjoe as Robert Sullivan
Boris Kodjoe is a man who has charmed not only Andy but also many fans. Unfortunately, in real life, the actor is off the market and has been happily married to Nicole Ari Parker for 15 years. The couple met and fell in love on the set of Showtime’s “Soul Food.”
In a previous interview, Parker said when she first saw Kodjoe, she expected him to be nothing more than the good-looking man who would portray her love interest for a few episodes.
However, they grew comfortable with each other and never wanted to become a typical couple from a TV show who portrayed lovebirds and fell in love with each other.
"We fought it until the whole crew begged us to finally get together," Boris said in an interview with New York Post.
They went on a date, and this story ended in marriage and two kids. However, their road to marriage wasn't that simple. Before starting a serious relationship with Nicole, Boris used to go to a therapist.
He wanted to work on his previous traumas before building a future with Nicole. "I knew she was special, and I didn't want to [expletive] it up," admitted Kodjoe
Of course, working on such a big project like "Station 19" takes a lot of time, but in an interview with Essence, the actor admitted that his family and children have always come first.
Despite that, the role in Shonda Rhimes's project is a dream job for him: "I've admired [Rhimes] for a long time, and I've always wanted to be a part of Shondaland, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity."
This character is the soul of Station 19, and we can't imagine the show without him. Who is he in the real world, though? Jay Hayden is very open about his life and previously shared what it is like to be half-Korean, half-Irish in the USA:
"Korean people don't think that I am Korean. White people don't think that I am white. I'm other."
The actor is also not secretive about his cute relationship with his wife, Nikki Danielle, who he has been with for over 17 years, and shares a child. Despite being busy at work, the actor still finds time for his friends and family.
“Well, for me, I love the challenge of playing any character who’s not exactly who I am. It’s a thrill for me to find who that person is, what makes them tick, and their thoughts and feelings.”
Barrett Doss as Victoria Hughes
"Grey's Anatomy" fans might dislike Victoria Hughes because she stole Jackson Avery, but we don't have any reason to despise her. Just like her character, Barrett Doss is everyone's favorite, but it's unlikely she ever dreamt of being a star when she was younger.
Being biracial and raised by two mothers wasn't really in her favor back in those days. When Doss was just six, her mother came out as gay and started living with her partner, Veronica. Many children found it weird that she had two mothers and didn't want anything to do with her.
Despite that, the actress has found her way and is thankful to her mothers for believing in her and to her father, who remarried, for helping her have confidence.
Doss' parents aren't the only ones who support her, as actor Austin Durant, who the actress often posts pictures with, does too. Although we don't know the details of their relationship, the two look incredibly adorable together.
Jason George as Ben Warren
Initially, Ben Warren was an anesthetist who decided to become a surgeon and then realized that his true calling was being a firefighter.
Jason George has been married to Indian poet Vandana Khanna for more than 20 years, and the couple has three children.
Initially, Khanna met George while attending school at the University of Virginia. That day George was dressed as King Kong and wanted to impress her so much that he put her on his shoulders to demonstrate how strong he was.
On "The Steve Harvey Show," he revealed the secret of his marriage: "We fight fair," he said. "You're gonna have fights because if you're not having fights, you're not being honest. So when you fight, you've gotta be fair about it."
He also added there is no point in saying the problem has been solved if it hasn't. If it isn't solved, then it might be worth talking about it again in six months.
Jaina Lee Ortiz as Andy Herrera
Jaina Lee Ortiz met animation director Bradley Marques ten years ago, and the two have been inseparable since.
Although pictures of them together are hard to find, it was reported the two got married a few months into their relationship.
The actress' father is a former police detective, and he couldn't resist running background checks on her boyfriends.
It's no surprise that he also ran a background check on Bradley Marques when the two started dating. Obviously, Bradley passed, and we are happy for him.
Grey Damon as Jack Gibson
Alice Greczyn and Grey Damon have been together for many years, and although we don't know any details of their relationship, we can follow their love story right on Instagram. It all started back in 2014 when the pair posted the same picture on their accounts.
The couple is often seen together at social gatherings and celebrations, and the majority of the pictures on Damon's Instagram is of his girlfriend.
They also often travel together and have even signed up for a dancing masterclass. Regardless of how long they have been together, they are obviously still very much in love.
Danielle Savre as Maya Bishop
Danielle Savre portrays a bisexual character and is very proud of it. Savre, who identifies as straight, revealed that she likes breaking stereotypes about the LGBTQ community, and she is glad that her character, Maya, is very deep and open-minded.
Savre's love life is also going well. She is in a relationship with Andrew Contis, a hockey analytics/video analyst for the Blackhawks, who grew up in the same town as she did.
We don't know if the two were friends as children or even knew each other, but their relationship started in 2014.
As he works in Chicago and the actress was based in LA, they had a long-distance relationship for some time, but now the couple has bought a house in Chicago.
Okieriete Onaodowan as Dean Miller
When Okieriete Onaodowan was first spotted in the company of Alyssa Kempinski, the news about their relationship spread in the media. It's unclear when they first met, but news about this couple first appeared when they went on a romantic getaway in San Diego.
Kempinski confirmed their relationship on social media, and two years later, Onaodowan joked about leaving his job, marrying his sweetheart, and staying at home. They kept making appearances together until the end of 2017, when suddenly they stopped posting pictures of each other.
Many thought the two had decided to keep their relationship more private, but if you look closely, you'll notice they've deleted all of their pictures together. This can only mean one thing - they are no longer together.
Alberto Frezza as Ryan Tanner
Alberto Frezza was very upset when he found out, just a few months before the second season's finale, what would happen to his character.
The turn of events seems rather weird, especially for "Grey's Anatomy fans." Frezza was sad about leaving the show and his friends on the set, who he'd rather not say goodbye to. His character's death will be tough for Andy, with who he is in a close relationship with.
We can't say anything definite about Alberto's relationship in real life, however. At the premiere of the "Avengers Endgame," he was spotted with actress Stefania Spampinato, who you might know as Carina Deluca in "Grey's Anatomy."
