Sarah Drew Reacts After Her 'Grey's Anatomy' Exit Is Announced


One day removed from the super-sad news that Sarah Drew and Jessica Capshaw are each leaving Grey's Anatomy, we are starting to get into more of what some of the other cast members are having to say on the subject - including Jesse Williams. And the really good news (for me, at least) is that I'm here on set shadowing some of my favourite people'. I know you're sad, I'm sad too. She wrote that the truth was that anybody could be good on a show Season 1 and 2 but the question was whether they could be good 14 years later which is the actual skill.

"I am grateful that I have gotten to bring her to life and for the life that she has brought to me", she continued. "And the really good news (for me at least), is that I'm here on set shadowing one of my favorite people, Kevin McKidd, with my beloved Grey's family all this week and next, so I get to process my feelings surrounded by the community that has nourished and nurtured me for nearly a decade".

Caterina Scorsone, who plays Amelia Shepherd, also posted an group Instagram photo of some of the women on the show: "A post to honor the handsome, smart, kind, powerful, women that I've had the privilege of sharing life with these past years".

Meanwhile, Capshaw praised her character Arizona has being one of the first LGBTQ characters in a series-regular role on television.

It doesn't look like we'll be saying permanent goodbyes-that means it doesn't look like they'll be killed off.

The publication also previously reported that Pompeo's pay increase may have been the reason behind Sarah Drew and Jessica Capshaw's axing from the hit ABC TV series. "It has been a joy and a privilege to work with these phenomenally talented actresses", co-showrunner Krista Vernoff said in a statement. Capshaw is still to say anything, although is likely feeling the same shock and sadness as her co-star.

The actor, who plays Dr. Jackson Avery on the long-running ABC drama, took to Twitter to speak out after news broke that Sarah Drew and Jessica Capshaw would exit the show after the current season. "They will always be a part of our Shondaland family".

"The only thing as constant on Grey's Anatomy as Ellen Pompeo is our penchant for reinvention", she wrote, adding, "We love these actresses and we love these characters and it felt true and right creatively to wrap up their stories".

This is now Season 14 of "Grey's Anatomy", showing just how long the program has survived on ABC.

On Wednesday, Drew posted a sweet message addressed to her fans on social media.

Deadline claims that Ellen, the show's star aka Meredith Grey, has signed on for another two-years with the ABC network for approximately $20 million a year.
