In ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ a medical show on ABC, Dr. Nick Marsh and Dr. Meredith Grey meet for the first time when Dr. Marsh passes out a few weeks after getting a new kidney.
A long time later, when Meredith goes to Minnesota to meet Dr. David Hamilton, they run into each other again. They eventually become good friends, which makes it possible for Nick to move to Grey Sloan. In the last episode of the 18th season, Nick and Meredith work together on a surgery that ends up being very sad. When they find out how the surgery went, they fight, and Meredith tells him to go back to Minnesota.
Nick goes back to Minnesota, but he comes back to Grey Sloan to get an organ for a transplant surgery. Meredith meets him and invites him to stay at Grey Sloan for a while. So, will he be okay with that? If that’s not the case, does Nick’s possible return to Minnesota mean that Scott Speedman is leaving the show?
Nick Marsh might go back to Minnesota
Nick comes to Grey Sloan in the first episode of the nineteenth season to get an organ for a transplant surgery that will happen at his workplace in Minnesota. Meredith meets him and asks if he wants to go with her to surgery to replace three organs. Because the surgery is hard, Nick goes with her. Meredith asks Nick to stay at Grey Sloan after the surgery and gives him the job of Residency Director. Meredith needs Nick because she doesn’t have enough people to fill the positions she needs in the hospital. She also offers Nick a good financial deal to get him to agree.
Nick says he will think about the offer, so it is possible that he will choose not to go back to Minnesota and instead take care of the residency program at Grey Sloan. But his final choice will depend on how likely it is that he will see Meredith again. In the last episode of the 18th season, Meredith asks him to leave for Minnesota, which hurts the good relationship they’ve built. Even so, it’s clear that Nick and Meredith like each other. Meredith’s reaction to finding out that Nick is in the hospital and her efforts to spend time with him show how much she wants to get back together with Nick.
If Meredith can convince Nick that she is trying to fix their relationship, he may decide to stay at Grey Sloan and share his life with Meredith instead of going back to Minnesota. Nick’s promise that he’ll think about Meredith’s offer shows that he’s open to it. If that’s not the case, Nick might ask Meredith to finish moving to Minnesota like she had planned. Nick and Meredith might move together to Minnesota. Does that mean that Scott Speedman is leaving the medical drama?
Does Scott Speedman have plans to leave Grey’s Anatomy?
At least for now, Scott Speedman is not leaving “Grey’s Anatomy.” In a recent interview, Speedman made it clear that the actor will stay on the show for “a little while.” Nick, played by Speedman, won’t be in as many episodes as he was in the 18th season, though, because he has been demoted from a regular cast member to a guest star. Speedman’s demotion could also mean that Nick is going back to Minnesota and leaving the show’s main setting, Grey Sloan. Before the 19th season, it was said that Ellen Pompeo’s character, Dr. Meredith Grey, would only be in eight episodes.
Due to Speedman’s demotion and Pompeo’s less screen time, Nick and Meredith may move back to Minnesota and only visit Seattle occasionally, like Meredith does in the 18th season. All things considered, we can be happy that Nick, played by Speedman, is still a part of “Grey’s Anatomy,” even though he has been on screen less since the end of the 18th season.
Speedman was born in London to Scottish parents, Mary (née Campbell), a primary school teacher and champion runner, and Roy Speedman (1944–1999), a buyer at a department store. Tracey, his sister, died on February 8, 2016, from cancer. His family moved to Toronto when he was four years old. He was a competitive swimmer who went to the gifted athlete program at Earl Haig Secondary School, which no longer exists. At the 1992 Olympic trials, Speedman, who was on the Canadian Junior National Swim Team, came in ninth. Soon after, he hurt his neck, which forced him to quit the sport. Speedman got interested in acting to find something else to do besides sports. He went on to study his craft at the University of Toronto and York University.
A friend told Speedman to go on Toronto’s Citytv’s “Speaker’s Corner,” an open forum for viewers, where he said he wanted to try out for the role of Robin in the movie “Batman Forever,” which was at the time being cast in Toronto. Even though the way he looked got him an audition, he didn’t get the part, which was given to Chris O’Donnell. The audition did get Speedman the attention he needed, and he quickly found an agent and started trying out for TV and movie roles in Canada.
Speedman first appeared on TV in 1995 in an episode of the show Kung Fu: The Legend Continues. In the same year, he had a recurring role on the show Nancy Drew. After playing a few small roles on TV, Speedman decided to move to New York City and study at the Neighborhood Playhouse for a short time before dropping out and going back to his home in Toronto. When he got a call from an American casting agent who wanted him to try out for a new TV show called Felicity, that was his big break. Speedman got a lot of praise for his role as Ben Covington, a moody college student, opposite Keri Russell’s breakout role as Felicity. As soon as Felicity came out, Speedman started getting offers for bigger parts on other shows while he was still on the show. In the movie Duets, which came out in 2000, Speedman played the part of Billy Hannan, which was played by Gwyneth Paltrow.
After Felicity ended after four years, Speedman quickly found success in movies. In 2002, he got his first big role in a movie. He played an inexperienced LAPD detective caught in a web of corruption with Kurt Russell in Dark Blue, a police drama. Next, Speedman played the husband of a woman who was dying in the independent drama My Life Without Me with fellow Canadian and high school classmate Sarah Polley. Speedman’s work on the movie earned him a “Golden Wave Award.”
In the supernatural thriller film Underworld, which came out later in 2003, Speedman and Kate Beckinsale played leads. Speedman was given a Saturn Award in the category “Cinescape Face of the Future Award” for his role in the stylized movie about a vampire and a werewolf. Then, he worked with James Marsden in the scary movie The 24th Day and with Ice Cube in XXX: State of the Union. After the first Underworld movie did well, Speedman played Michael Corvin again in the 2006 movie Underworld: Evolution. He was in the movies Anamorph with Willem Dafoe and Weirdsville with Wes Bentley. Speedman also worked with Liv Tyler in the horror-thriller The Strangers, which came out in 2008, and with Rachel Blanchard in Atom Egoyan’s mystery-drama Adoration.
In July 2009, it was said that Speedman would be in the movie version of Barney’s Version, along with Dustin Hoffman and others. In August 2009, pre-production started, and the movie was shot in Rome, New York, and Canada. Speedman also starred with Lizzy Caplan and Dwight Yoakam in the independent Western The Last Rites of Ransom Pride. In the 2012 and 2016 sequels, Awakening and Blood Wars, old footage of Speedman from the first Underworld movies was used. His face was put on a stand-in for his character’s short role in the movies. He had a small part in The Vow as Jeremy.
Speedman’s last role was as XO Sam Kendal in Last Resort, an ABC military drama that debuted on September 27, 2012.
In June 2013, Wes Bentley and Speedman were both chosen to be in Open, an HBO movie directed by Ryan Murphy. In 2014, he was in the Llus Qulez Sala thriller Out of the Dark with Julia Stiles. He was the main character in several independent movies, like Barefoot, The Captive, and The Monster.
Until the first episode of season 3, he played Barry “Baz” Blackwell on the TNT crime drama Animal Kingdom. In 2018, he appeared on Grey’s Anatomy as a guest star as Dr. Nick Marsh. In season 18, he became a regular cast member.
Scott Speedman was born in London, England, to Mary (Campbell), an elementary school teacher from Scotland, and Roy Speedman, a buyer for a department store. He grew up in Canada’s Toronto. He wanted to be a swimmer, and he had a record that was among the best for freestyle distance. Unfortunately, an accident put an end to that plan. He went to Toronto’s Earl Haig High School. From 1994 to 1996, he went to the University of Toronto. On a dare, he went on a show called “Speakers Corner.” Later, he went to try out for the part of Robin in Batman Forever (1995). When Chris O’Donnell got the part, he was able to find an agent. He also worked on Kitchen Party (1997) and Duets (2000), both of which starred Gwyneth Paltrow. Scott was introduced to the world by the 1998 show Felicity, which has given him a lot of fans. When the show ended in 2002, Kate Beckinsale and Bill Nighy’s Underworld, which came out in 2003, was Scott’s big break.
