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.

    If EP would be so inclined to tell the truth, she’d say she’s delighted to have been able to get Dempsey off the show. He was handsome, he could act and he was followed by more followers than she. Ellen went to Shondra with the news he was having a flirtation with one of the staff and should be fired. Lovely lady, isn’t she? When the show is cancelled next year, she may learn the meaning of Karma.

    Bitter much?

    I’m not bitter; but I dislike people who go behind other’s backs telling tales. I’m a New Englander and was proud to have Dempsey and Ellen, who are both from New England, on the show in starring roles. The lady from Massachusetts let me down. I think speaking to him rather than ‘the boss’ would have displayed a little more character.
