Katherine Heigl had the same reaction that the rest of the world had when the Grey’s Anatomy team killed off Patrick Dempsey’s character, Derek Shepherd.
It’s funny to think that Katherine Heigl, who was on Grey’s for six seasons, didn’t see it coming.
But, Katherine Heigl was just as shocked as the rest of us when McDreamy died.
Katherine Heigl said, “I just can’t even imagine the show without McDreamy. I just can’t! It’s so hard to picture.”
And fans could say a collective, “I know, right?!”, if fans could say anything collectively.
Katherine Heigl was also shuffled off the cast of Grey’s Anatomy, but not as a beloved fan favorite.
Instead, Katherine Heigl was unceremoniously written off after being vocal with her displeasure concerning the material on the show. She even memorably had her name removed from the Emmy ballot because she didn’t think she was “given the material … to warrant a nomination.”
Despite the apparent discontent between Katherine Heigl and the Grey‘s team, and the fact that her career hasn’t ever fully recovered, she wishes them nothing but the best.
Katherine Heigl said, “[It] was just an incredible experience for me. It changed the course of my life and career and I couldn’t be more grateful.”
She added, “I just hope it goes for as long as they all want it to.”
However, that doesn’t mean Katherine Heigl will be coming back to the operating table. Although there were rumors to the contrary recenty, she says there’s no chance.
What do you think? Are you still holding out hope that Katherine Heigl could return to Grey’s Anatomy?
