The 53-year-old actress revealed during an interview with E! のレッドカーペットに 2022 ピープルズチョイスアワード that Pompeo’s character will continue to “ebb and flow” シーズンを通して 19 of the ABC drama series.
“Meredith never knows what she’s doing so Meredith is taking care of the baby in Boston, that’s what the plans are, but you know things never go as planned on グレイズアナトミー,” she shared to host ラバーンコックス. “Meredith is still a part of every episode, still doing the voiceovers for every episode and she gets to come through, and ebb and flow all through the season.”
彼女は付け加えた, “Meredith is always with us.”
In a separate red carpet interview, ポンペイ, 53, revealed that fans will still see Meredith on screen a few more times this season.
“I think I am really just in the finale this year,” 彼女はコックスに言った. “I think we’ve aired six episodes or seven episodes, おそらく. Maybe after the winter hiatus, I am in one more, 多分, and then the finale, 実際に。”
She also thanked the fans for making “it all possible,” 追加する, “Power to the people!”
“I am eternally grateful and humbled by the love and support you have all shown me, Meredith GREY and the show for 19 季節!” wrote Pompeo, 53. “Through it all….none of it …would have been possible without the best fans in the world. You all are RIDERS and you all have made the ride so fun and ICONIC!!”
彼女は付け加えた, “I love you madly and appreciate you right back.”
ポンペイ stepped back from the series this season to pursue outside projects, including Hulu’s adaptation of the 2009 映画 Orphan, which follows a terrifying adoption story in which a couple’s new daughter turns out to be a grown woman masquerading as a child.
Meredith’s storyline (これまでのところ) ended with her character’s decision to leave Seattle for Boston, where she accepted a position with the Catherine Fox Foundation to research Alzheimer’s disease. There have been far more dramatic, and tragic, exits on the series — and Meredith’s new job certainly leaves the door open to guest appearances.
Pompeo confirmed as much in the conclusion of her statement. “This isn’t your first time on the rollercoaster… you know the show must go on and I’ll definitely be back to visit,” 彼女は書いた. “With a lot of love and immense gratitude XoE 🙏🏼❤️”
