Pompeo will make directorial debut
After starring in the popular soap, Grey’s Anatomy for 13 years, actor Ellen Pompeo (left) is finally following in the footsteps of several of her co-stars. She will direct an episode of the medical drama in February.
The episode will air later this year as part of Grey’s Anatomy 13th season. An airdate has yet to be determined, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Pompeo joins fellow Grey’s co-stars Kevin McKidd (Owen) and Chandra Wilson (Bailey), who each directed multiple episodes of the drama from Rhimes and Shondaland partner Betsy Beers. Grey’s executive producer and recurring star Debbie Allen (Catherine) also has been a frequent director as well as Tom Verica, who has frequently pulled double duty helming the show Scandal while recurring on the popular crime soap, How to Get Away With Murder.
