Ellen Pompeo Speaks Out on McDreamy's 'Grey's Anatomy' Death
Ellen Pompeo is all smiles as she heads out on a shopping trip on Thursday afternoon (August 6) in Los Angeles.
The 45-year-old actress recently attended the 2015 Summer TCA Tour, where she spoke about her show Grey’s Anatomy, which recently began filming its 12th season.
Fans of the show were upset to see the famed McDreamy character killed off the show but Ellen said it was necessary for the series to continue.
“In order for a one-hour drama to continue, there has to be big upheavals. Every time we’ve lost a major character — we’ve had such amazing characters on the show and every time we’ve lost one, it’s been devastating and sad. You think, ‘How can the show go on?’ But that’s how the writers find inspiration. So the loss of the big characters is exactly how the show does go on,” Ellen explained.
FYI: Ellen is wearing a Forever 21 dress.
