Chris Carmack Was 'Drenched in Tears' Watching Justin Chambers's Exit From 'Grey's Anatomy'

Chris Carmack is opening up about watching Justin Chambers leave Grey’s Anatomy after 15 seasons on the show.

The actor, who plays Dr. Atticus Lincoln on the drama, spoke to People about watching Justin say goodbye.

“[Chambers’] contributions to the story over the years was one that was difficult to say goodbye to,” Chris shared. “The Grey’s community is definitely a family and supportive of one another. There was an emotional fallout amongst cast and crew when we found out.”

He added that like many, he was also in tears.

“It was really kind of beautiful to look back on Alex Karev and his 16 years of life on the show,” he continued. “Watching him and Meredith and their first go around, and him and Izzie. How incredible to see a flashback of 16 years ago that was actually shot as part of the television show. It was very tangible and emotional.”

Chris added, “It wasn’t just a flashback from that episode. Those were scenes that fans had invested in so long ago. To see them all back to back was very powerful.”
