Shonda Rhimes Defends Killing Derek Off 'Grey's Anatomy'

Ellen Pompeo and Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes sit in a panel together during the ABC portion of the 2015 Summer TCA Tour on Tuesday (August 4) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The ladies were joined on the panel by Scandal‘s Kerry Washington and How to Get Away with Murder‘s Viola Davis.

Shonda opened up about why she decided to kill off Patrick Dempsey‘s character Derek from Grey’s Anatomy after the actor made plans to leave the show.

“The decision to have the character die the way that he did, was not a difficult one in the sense of what were the options? Either Derek was going to walk out on Meredith and leave her high and dry and what was that going to mean?” Shonda said (via THR). “That was going to suggest that their love was not true — that the thing we said for 11 years was a lie and McDreamy wasn’t McDreamy and that was untenable. Meredith and Derek’s love had to remain Meredith and Derek’s love. As painful as it was for me as a storyteller because I never thought that would happen, the only way to preserve that is Derek had to die for that love to remain honest. I couldn’t have that he turned out to be a bad guy who walked out on his wife and kid … for me, the only way was to make Derek and Meredith’s magic to remain true and forever frozen in time.”

FYI: Ellen is wearing a Roland Mouret outfit, Aquazzura shoes, and jewelry by Jennifer Meyer and Rachel Katz.

Grey's Anatomy's Camilla Luddington Picks Between McDreamy & McSteamy!

Camilla Luddington is looking sexy as ever on the cover of Line Magazine‘s new issue, on newsstands June 15.

Here is what the 31-year-old Grey’s Anatomy actress had to share with the mag, shared exclusively with JustJared.com:

On whether she prefers Dr. McDreamy or Dr. McSteamy: “I was always a McDreamy fan…maybe it’s the hair.”

On one of her best on-set memories from Grey’s Anatomy: “There’s a period where Jo and Alex tease their romance for an entire season. The first kiss was very special to me cause I was rooting for them all season. They are best friends on the show. Justin Chambers and I would even ask the writers, ‘When are Alex and Jo getting together? We know they’re meant to be together!’ It was a really great memory. I loved that moment for her.”

On what she would be doing if she wasn’t acting: “I would want to be a ghost hunter because I am obsessed with those shows. I don’t know why I say that cause I’m so scared of ghosts and wouldn’t last five minutes, but in my head I would be amazing. In reality, I would be out of there in two minutes!”

On exciting projects currently in the works: “I am about to film The Healer with Oliver Jackson Cohen. It’s a romantic comedy filming this summer and should be out next year. I also have a top-secret project that I can’t talk about…Stay tuned!”
