- Patrick Dempsey was a guest on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.
- He said the response to ‘McDreamy’s’ return on last week’s Grey’s has been overwhelming and moving.
- He was surprised how well the secret was kept. He said no one knew other than key ABC people until he showed up on set that day.
- The cast found out when they saw him. He was afraid someone would take a picture and the secret would get out.
“The response has been incredibly overwhelming and very moving,” the actor said While appearing virtually on Wednesday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show , the 54-year-old actor opened up about his recent appearance on the ever-popular ABC medical drama five years after his character, Derek Shepherd, was killed off.
