Sarah Drew is trying to recall her memories. She is memorizing the day whenshe was told she was being let go from Grey’s Anatomy. It was not easy for her but she is happy.
“I was let go during an episode where I was shadowing Kevin McKidd [who stars as Owen and regularly directs episodes]. It was in the afternoon and I went back to my trailer and I did my crying and called my people. A whole bunch of people came into my trailer to give me hugs and cry with me and tell me they were so sad I was leaving,” Sarah recalled to THR.
She added, “I was supposed to be shadowing Kevin this whole episode with the hope that I would get to direct an episode of Grey‘s but [after being let go] it seemed like wasn’t a possibility anymore. I wondered if I should keep shadowing Kevin. My husband was like, ‘Of course you go.’ I had this incredible opportunity to grow as a director and as an artist with a director that I respect so much. I had nothing to be ashamed of and didn’t need to hide. So that’s what I did: I showed up the next morning at 6 a.m. and shadowed Kevin until I got cast as Cagney and had to leave to go shoot CBS’ Cagney and Lacey.”
