Sara Ramirez Is Leaving “Grey’s Anatomy”

Grey’s Anatomy” is losing another longtime cast member and one of my personal favorites.

Sara Ramirez, who plays Dr. Callie Torres, has announced she will be departing from the hit Shondaland series after 10 seasons.

In a statement, Ramirez shared, “I’m deeply grateful to have spent the last 10 years with my family at Grey’s Anatomy & ABC, but for now I’m taking some welcome time off. Shonda’s been so incredible to work for, and we will definitely continue our conversations! I send my love to Ellen, the rest of the cast & crew, and I look forward to always being a part of the Shondaland family!”

Shonda Rhimes says she will miss Sara Ramirez tremendously and she wishes her well.

“Dr. Callie Torres came into our lives dancing it out in her underwear almost a decade ago, and I could not be happier or more proud of her journey,” Rhimes said. “Sara Ramirez’s performance inspired me as well as millions of fans each week. We wish her the best on her well-deserved time off. I will miss Callie tremendously, but am excited for what the future holds for Sara. She will always have a home at Shondaland.”

Sara will definitely be missed.
