“Hi everybody, I’m on the red carpet with Yahoo interviewing the legendary Ellen Pompeo,” Dempsey mentioned, turning to the digicam. “Ellen, what does it feel like to be a legend?”

She replied, “Well, I thought we were already legends, but I’m really happy we are officially legends now.”

“It’s been confirmed today, so thank you for that,” he added, referring to the truth that he and Pompeo had been formally named Disney Legends for his or her “extraordinary contributions” to the studio, in accordance with Deadline.

“I’ll tell you what I’m not doing is singing and dancing,” Pompeo mentioned, to which Dempsey responded, “I know, I’m not either but I should be. I’m working on my Vegas show, we’re going to announce that soon.”

After the dialog derailed as soon as once more, the actor declared he had one final query for Pompeo throughout the impromptu interview. Dempsey, who will star within the upcoming “Enchanted” sequel “Disenchanted,” requested the actor, “How is the new season? A lot of new faces on there. Are you going to do 30 seasons?”

“No, I’m not going to do 30 seasons, I’m going to do eight episodes,” she mentioned as she laughed, referring to the upcoming nineteenth season of the ABC medical drama. “There’s someone missing from the show…I can’t think of who it is…somebody is missing from the show that was a big part of the show and it’s not the same without that person…”

Dempsey portrayed the character Derek Shepherd for 11 seasons till his exit in 2015. Nevertheless, the actor returned for an episode in November 2020 in a shock look, a number of seasons after his character died.

On the finish of the interview, Dempsey appeared happy with himself, declaring to Pompeo and the digicam, “Thank you, this is my new job. This is my red carpet…let’s see who’s next!”

“We haven’t spoken since he’s left the show,” she mentioned. “I have no hard feelings toward him. He’s a wonderful actor and we made the best TV you can make together. That’s a talented man right there. And he did 11 amazing years.”

She added, “Typically when people leave the show, they need to sort of refine themselves—who they are without the show—because the show takes up so much of your life. You need that time to figure out who you are without the show, so we have not spoken but I will always have a place in my heart for Patrick.”

Simply three years later although, Dempsey appeared on Pompeo’s podcast “Tell Me” in September 2021 for a nostalgia-filled episode. She mirrored on her expertise engaged on “Grey’s Anatomy,” explaining that she “learned so much from the experience” in addition to her relationships with completely different solid members.

“(Those) have been some of the best life lessons I’ve ever had in my life,” she mentioned. “And because of the concentrated intensity of the experience, all of it, it really has been a blessing in so many ways because you start to look at the good, the bad and the ugly. We’re here to refine ourselves and to improve, and it was really something that we all kind of lived through together, this amazing journey.”
