Patrick talks racing & Grey’s Anatomy! Here’s what he had to say!
On the Race Track with Patrick Dempsey
RICHMOND (WRIC) – He may wear scrubs on “Grey’s Anatomy,” but off camera, actor Patrick Demspey is more likely to be in a racing suit.
8News anchor Morgan Dean chased him down at a recent race in Virginia to chat about his future on the TV show, his life off camera and why he loves coming to Virginia.
When he isn’t saving lives on camera on TV as Derek Shepherd, he’s usually on a track somewhere behind the wheel of his number 27 Porsche.
8News caught up him at Virginia International Raceway in late September as he practiced for the American Lemans Series Race.
He says he feels more comfortable under his helmet on the blacktop than under the lights on the set.
“The Porsche…its whole identity is about racing…it’s about performance, passion…you feel that when you are driving,” he says.
Dempsey wouldn’t have this second career if it wasn’t for his hit medical drama.
Even though it may not be heavily watched among his pit crew, even in season 10 it is still one of ABC’s most popular shows.
It’s far from being on life support, but it is showing its age.
Original star Sandra Oh is leaving later this year and Dempsey’s contract is up. Many fans are worried McDreamy is about to hang up his scrubs.
“If there’s more money, sure. Why not?” he says. “We’ll see. It depends how we do this season.”
As for the rest of this season, Dempsey says fans have seen a glimpse at where it’s headed.
“Derek allows Meredith to go back into surgery after the birth. Shepherd goes into brain mapping.”
Unlike many Hollywood celebrities, you don’t find many paparazzi shots of Dempsey gracing the tabloids. He’d like to keep it that way.
“I just prefer being alone or with my family,” he says. “With my race schedule, I’m almost always on the road on the weekends traveling somewhere. I really prefer being at home. I have a nice farm in Malibu. I have chickens.. vegetables. I prefer that way to live.”
Speaking of his lifestyle, Dempsey says he could see retiring to Virginia someday. He fell in love with Richmond while shooting the HBO miniseries “Iron Jawed Angels” here a decade ago.
“I had a great time in Richmond,” he says. “I love the sense of history that is there. I love how much preservation is going on in downtown.”
