If you are considering hitting Ellen Pompeo for her decision to become part-time at Grey’s Anatomy, don’t do it; her castmates disagree.
“Ellen has been the captain of this ship all these years, and she’s about to start producing”Kevin McKidd tells E! News, “So he needed to make room on his agenda for that.”
“The fact that he’s not quitting the show and just shrinking a little” really impressed McKidd, who adds, “What I think is great is that he shows his love for the show.”
In an interview with Extra, Jesse Williams confirmed this emotion. “That woman has worked so hard all year, every year, for the past 20 years, building this franchise globally.”he said. “Every break you take is well deserved”.
Additionally, Williams is confident that Grey’s Anatomy has a plan to fill the void left by Meredith’s occasional absence. “I’m sure they have an ace up their sleeve”, He says. Without a doubt, among them is the slew of new hires from the series. “We have these fantastic new trainees”notes McKidd, and the incoming doctors will bring “New life at the show”.
Jesse Williams says Grey’s Anatomy wouldn’t survive without Ellen Pompeo
Candidate Tony 2022 has spoken out about the possibility of Pompeo, 52, being able to leave the ABC series, responding to recent comments he has made on the matter.
“I don’t know, it would be a different show”, Williams said. “She is the heart of that show. She is Gray. Hence, unlikely. But again, I don’t work there anymore. So it doesn’t matter what I think. “
Pompeo says Grey’s could go on without her
Pompeo has been in the cast since her debut season aired in 2005. Asked about the series that could continue without her, she said, “We’ll see, we’ll see.”
“Trying to reinvent the show and continually trying to reinvent the show is the challenge at this point. The show speaks to many people, and young people love the show “, he added. “It has inspired so many generations of healthcare professionals. So, I think for young people, it’s a really good piece of content and we will try to keep it going for young people – not necessarily with me, but keep going beyond me. “
Pompeo also openly expressed his desire to end the series
“I feel like I’m the super naive who keeps saying, ‘What story is this, what story are we going to tell? ‘” he told Insider in December 2021. “And everyone is like, ‘Who cares, Ellen? It makes a billion dollars. ‘”
It was announced in January that Pompeo will return for the show’s 19th season.
