According to Ellen Pompeothe Gray Sloan Memorial could function without Dr. Grey.
Pompeo played the role of Grey’s Anatomy’s titular character Meredith Gray through the 18 seasons of the ABC series, but she insists she could go on without her. The actress explained that she, along with the series creator Shonda Rhimeswant the show to go on with or without her because she has “inspired so many generations of healthcare workers”.
“I think for young people it’s really good content,” Pompeo said in an interview with Entertainment tonight“and we will try to continue for young people, not necessarily with me, but that it continues beyond me.”
She added, “To continually try to reinvent the show is the challenge at this point, and listen, the show speaks to a lot of people and young people love the show.”
So who will replace Meredith?
“We’ll find someone,” Pompeo said, “maybe, or we won’t.”
