In her 12 seasons on the ABC medical hit "Grey's Anatomy," Ellen Pompeo's Meredith Grey rose from resident to chief of general surgery at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. So when the finale airs, "I have to watch it on Thursday.
She also dealt with the loss of husband Derek (Patrick Dempsey) in a car crash, leaving her a widowed single mother who starts her life over. I could have asked to see the whole thing but I don't have that much time. I know what we filmed but I don't know what she changed or moved around. My final voice over is over the ending."For Pompeo, a standout moment was having Denzel Washington direct the mid-season premiere, which saw Meredith being brutalized by a patient.
I hear stories about people in hospital beds with cancer and they watch 'Grey's' and it makes them feel comforted. I try and explain to her that people want to hug me because the show helps them."Which is why she'll never complain about the show's devoted and vocal fans.
I've been so humbled by the way this show moves people," she says. "To have the ability to reach people at this level has been a moving experience for me," says Pompeo.
actress Ellen Pompeo made it clear to executive producer Shonda Rhimes that she did not want actor Isaiah Washington to play her on-screen love interest on the hit medical drama.
In an interview with the on the set of the show’s 200th episode, Pompeo reveals she told Rhimes she’d rather have a white actor, Patrick Dempsey, play Derek Shepherd, her character Meredith’s lover because she felt the mixed-race storyline would be “too close to home.” “You know they wanted Isaiah Washington to be my boyfriend. Pompeo also addressed the controversial and dramatic exit of actress Katherine Heigl, who famously withdrew her name from Emmy consideration in 2008 because she felt the show’s writing did not make her worthy of a nomination.
Shonda really wanted to put a black man in the mix. in 2007 Washington left the show after using an anti-homosexual slur during an on-set dispute with castmate T. “Hurt feelings, combined with instant success and huge paychecks started things spinning out of control,” Pompeo tells the Post. You could understand why she wanted to go, when you’re offered million a movie and you’re only 26.
