Chyler Leigh, known for her role as Lexie Grey on Grey's Anatomy, spoke with E! News this week about Patrick Dempsey making his unexpected exit from the show.

Starring in an upcoming CBS series called Supergirl, Chyler Leigh has a theory about where McDreamy is--as well as Lexie and McSteamy--Marc Sloan, who was played by Eric Dane.

"He's just sitting at the bar up there--he's chilling," she said about McDreamy, when asked how he was doing in 'Grey's Heaven.' She added that Lexie and McSteamy were doing quite well up un 'Grey's Heaven,' too.

Did she know the Grey's producers were about to kill off Patrick Dempsey's character?

"I had no idea," Chyler Leigh says.

What's your take on Chyler Leigh's take on the dearly departed characters from Grey's Anatomy?

The death of Patrick Dempsey's character has prompted Ellen Pompeo to dedicate her future performances on Grey's Anatomy to grieving people all around the world. That's how she hopes to make sense of her ongoing Meredith Grey storyline in Dempsey's absence.
