In light of recent news regarding Sandra Oh’s impending departure from the long running show, E! Online has released an article reviewing some of Grey’s Anatomy’s previous cast exits.
Hey, Grey’s Anatomy fans have been through this before!
Washington, who played the prestigious Dr. Preston Burke, exited the hit series after making headlines for his use of homophobic slurs against co-star T.R. Knight during an on-set dispute with Patrick Dempsey.
The actor, who was one of the original cast members, asked to be let out of his contract in December of 2009 after expressing his frustrations with his character George’s lack of storylines.
After reportedly trying to get out of her contract for three years, Heigl got her wish in 2010 when it was confirmed that she would be leaving the ABC series.
“This was not an easy decision. But it was a decision that Chyler and I came to together,” Rhimes said at the time of Leigh’s decision to leave the series after five seasons.
After Dane announced his departure, Rhimes called Mark “one of the most beloved characters” on the show and said the actor “did not come to this decision lightly, but after much consideration and conversations, he and I have decided that this is the right time for his storyline to end.”

To me, some of these departures felt fitting while others seemed to end on a not so great note. No secret many of us miss these characters. And many will DEFINITELY miss Cristina once she’s gone. Who would you say left before their time? Think this is the last of cast departures we’ll see for a while? Think more are coming? Let us know! P.S. No mention of Brooke Smith (Dr. Erica Hahn) or Kim Raver (Dr. Teddy Altman)? Think there should have been?
Do you miss Isaiah Washington on your tv? Well, he has a new show and TVLine has a preview and interview featuring Isaiah along with his fellow castmates.
