In this image released by ABC, Patrick Dempsey appears in a scene from "Grey's Anatomy," which aired April 23. ABC President Paul Lee was asked Tuesday, Aug. 4, about the decision to kill off Dempsey’s character, Derek "McDreamy" Shepherd, from the show. The question was asked at a bi-annual press conference for TV critics. Lee went on to say that “It was a difficult decision. Patrick obviously has lots of interests outside. He’s very big in motosport. Shonda (Rhimes) decided that was the way to go.” (Kelsey McNeal/ABC via AP)
