Ellen Pompeo’s “Grey’s Anatomy” farewell is making waves. Now her former co-star Patrick Dempsey has also reacted to the exit.
After a total of 19 seasons, Ellen Pompeo (53) recently announced her departure from the popular medical series “Grey’s Anatomy”. Now her former serial husband Patrick Dempsey (56) aka Dr. Derek “McDreamy” Shepherd on the end of Dr. Meredith Gray responds.
“Did she really? Did they finally get her,” Dempsey quipped after the host jokingly told him that Pompeo left the show after she was caught stealing Band-Aids from the set. Dempsey quipped, “Can you imagine what she’s going to have in her house now after 19 seasons? A full hospital.”
“It changed my life”
The actor, who played the role of Dr. Derek Shepherd, who gained international fame through it, recalled the amazing “power of this show and how long it has lasted and the impact it has had around the world”. It fundamentally changed his life and that of my family.
Accordingly, Dempsey has often met people over the years who would now aspire to a medical career because of “Grey’s Anatomy”. “I met them who said it was because of the show. They went through medical school and are now in practice.” That is “the best” of the series.
