    14 Reactions To Justin Chambers Leaving "Grey's Anatomy," Including Ellen Pompeo's

    Grey's writers...I just wanna talk.

    On Friday it was announced that after 15 years and over 300 episodes, Justin Chambers is leaving Grey's Anatomy.

    In a statement to Deadline, the 50-year-old actor said, "There’s no good time to say goodbye to a show and character that’s defined so much of my life for the past 15 years."

    For the first time since his announcement, Justin's costar Ellen Pompeo is reacting to the news.

    In a tweet on Saturday, the Grey's star quote-tweeted an article that referred to Justin's exit as "one of [the show's] biggest losses yet," saying, "Truer words have never been spoken 💔."
