Patrick Dempsey Leaving 'Grey's Anatomy'
Dr. McDreamy Says He Wants To Take On More Movie Roles
POSTED: Wednesday, June 1, 2011
Patrick Dempsey is moving on from Dr. McDreamy after the eighth season of "Grey’s Anatomy."
He's hinted at it for quite some time, but Dempsey finally made his departure official to Italian Vanity Fair magazine this week.
“It’s gonna be my last,” he said of the show's eighth season. “I do not know what’s going to happen to the other characters, but for me it’s done.”
Dempsey said the idea of checking out of Seattle Grace after seven years is “bittersweet because it’s been great and a great part of my life. But I can’t see me doing it anymore.”
He said he wants to take on more roles on the big screen.
Dempsey will star in the upcoming "Transformers: Dark of the Moon," but said he’d really love to play Marvel superhero Dr. Strange in a film adaptation. Patrick Dempsey Leaving 'Grey's Anatomy' - Entertainment News Story - KSAT San Antonio
