It has been 17 years as the protagonist of Grey’s Anatomybut Dr. Meredith Gray is now willing to hang up the stethoscope, since through a publication on Instagram she informed that she will leave the medical drama screen.
«I am forever grateful and humbled by the love and support everyone has shown me, Meredith Gray and the series for 19 seasons! None of this would have been possible without the best fans in the world,” Pompeo said on Instagram.
