After 11 years spent playing the role of Dr. Derek Shepherd known as "McDreamy", on the hit TV show Grey's Anatomy, Patrick Dempsey finally decided it was time to move on.
Fans of his character were heartbroken, but, as the actor put it:
It had been long enough. It was time for me to move on with other things and other interests. I probably should have moved on a couple of years earlier. I stayed a bit longer than I should have.
