Shonda Rhimes Admits to Killing a Character Because She Didn't Like the Actor

Shonda Rhimes just made a surprising confession – she has killed a character off one of her television shows because she didn’t like the actor!

The powerful television producer was appearing on The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore when she was asked to answer the question. “Extra bonus points for who it was,” the host added.

Shonda paused before answering, “Yes… and I’m not naming names.”

Fans have been going crazy trying to figure out who the actor could have been. Some of the most high profile deaths on Shonda‘s shows include Grey’s Anatomy‘s Patrick Dempsey, Eric Dane, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Scandal‘s Columbus Short and Dan Bucatinsky.

Shonda has previously confirmed that Columbus was let go from the show so he could take time to deal with his legal issues.

    Stop and think about why she didn’t like the actor. There had to have been a reason. I’ve heard many stories about the diva antics of some of the actors on her shows.
