“I will always be grateful to Shonda Rhimes, Krista Vernoff, and ABC for the opportunity, and to the incredible fans for their passionate support.

“To spend nine years exploring a character inside and out, while reaching a global audience with impactful stories, is a rare gift.

“Playing Maggie Pierce has been one of the true joys of my life and I leave with profound gratitude for every step of this journey. I am excited for this next chapter, and what the future holds.”

Showrunner Vernoff went on to say of this news: “Kelly McCreary is a writer’s dream come true; brilliant, nuanced, thoughtful, and kind.

“We will deeply miss her and her beautifully crafted Dr Maggie Pierce.”
