13. Tiny Blonde

Originally, Shonda Rhimes was looking for a tiny blonde woman with curly hair to play Bailey. But, the role was given to Chandra Wilson. Rhimes said she knew Wilson was the perfect match the second she came in and opened her mouth, “This character was the only one written with a description in mind. I pictured her as a tiny blonde with curls. I thought it would be unexpected to have this sweet-looking person open her mouth and say tough things. But then Chandra Wilson auditioned, and she opened her mouth and said those same things. I thought, ‘That’s exactly who Miranda is.'”
