Grey's Anatomy's Giacomo Gianniotti Opens Up About Justin Chambers' Exit from the Show

Giacomo Gianniotti looks so handsome while stepping out to promote his partnership with fashion brand Nobis on Thursday (March 12) in New York City.

The 30-year-old Italian actor was joined at the event by models Garrett Neff and Alex Lundqvist.

Giacomo just opened up about his Grey’s Anatomy co-star Justin Chambers‘ exit from the show.

“Any character on the show who leaves, they never die on the show. They’re always spoken about on the show, they’re always referenced,” Giacomo told Us Weekly at the event. “Their spirit is always alive on the show. They never truly leave, especially someone like him, who’s been on from the beginning. You can’t just write him off and then never talk about him again. He’s there. But, yeah, there’s gaps to fill.”

“We’re sad to see him leave, but he’s been playing this guy for 16 years and we totally respect that he wants to have some time with his family,” Giacomo added. “He’s got five kids, he’s got a lovely family and he wanted to explore the opportunity. So, we couldn’t be happier for him.”

Ellen Pompeo recently revealed what she thought about Alex Karev’s farewell from the show.
