20Ellen Pompeo Said Bye-Bye To 'Grey's Anatomy'
Business Insider notes that when Grey’s Anatomy actress Ellen Pompeo became pregnant during the filming for the sixth season, the executive producer decided against writing it in and made her hide it.
Sharp-eyed fans noticed that she was pretty much filmed in close-up shots. In order to accommodate the actress’s maternity
leave, the showrunner decided to write Meredith off for a bit, by saying that she had to donate a part of her liver to her estranged father. Can you say awkward writing?
