Ellen Pompeo & Patrick Dempsey Go 'Greys'

Ellen Pompeo & Patrick Dempsey Go 'Greys'

Ellen Pompeo and co-star Patrick Dempsy walk around on the set of Grey’s Anatomy on a rainy afternoon on Sunday (January 17) in Los Angeles.

Patrick recently shared about the developments between his character and Ellen‘s character with USA Today. “I think this is probably the first season where I’m really happy with the direction the character’s going,” he says. “We couldn’t get past the ‘Are they together? Are they not?’ for so long. In episodic TV, that’s sometimes the cross you bear.”

“I couldn’t find any other way to look longingly at Meredith [Ellen Pompeo],” he says. “It’s nice to be moving forward. It was fun initially – like for the first few years. Then we kind of got stuck in that and I think everybody got frustrated.”

  • Emma

    Poor Patrick & Ellen! Season 4 & 5 were awful… what with the back to s*x only, then the plant (also known as stupid plot device aka Rose), and then in season 5, they had like two minutes per episodes!
    Season 6 seems much better for their characters. PD always wanted them to move forward, get married (don’t let me started on how Shonda screwed that up!) and Meredith dealing with being pregnant, having a baby and being a doctor.. All those were ideas he talked about but that took YEARS to happen…

  • CanadaGirl

    She looks amazing post-baaby. Her fuller figure, which is still very thin, looks amazing.

  • WalaBridget

    They’re magic together, at this level it’s not even chemistry, it’s just magic.
    The last sneak peek is amazing.

  • Chaucee

    That’s good to be satisfied with the work the writers are giving you – makes for better acting!

  • iAEl

    ooow gosh! beautiful couple! they’re the best ever!

    I stopped watching Grey’s at the beginning of last season, after they butchered the Mer/Der storyline and most of the other ones, too. Glad to hear Patrick at least thinks this season is better for his and Meredith’s character- this might inspire me to watch again, because I shipped them for so long and all Shonda did was eff it up time and time again…

  • valerie

    I think Grey’s is finally coming back. Only a good mer/der story line and decent screen time will keep people watching. Their ratings are coming
    back but there is always the danger that Shonda will eff it up again. She
    just doesn’t get it that tne vast majority of fans are PD & EP shippers.

    Two hard working professionals. Best TV couple ever! Why do I have a feeling this was from the Valentine’s day show. They went back ( just the two of them) for the final car scene at the end. Eye sex!
