Kate Walsh and Ellen Pompeo celebrated that one Grey’s Anatomy scene that got fans hooked to the TV show 15 years ago! It all started with Walsh sharing the clip that shows Dr. Addison Montgomery approaching her estranged hubby, Derek Shepherd while he chats with Meredith Grey – his love interest throughout the series.
Alongside it, she wrote: ‘Unreal that today marks 15 years ago to the day since this little lady walked on to your screen and checked ya for screwing her husband.’
It did not take long for Pompeo to stumble upon her co-star’s post and re-share it on her Twitter.
The actress added ‘@katewalsh thank god I messed with your hubby!! 😂😂 😂 it worked out pretty well for us both!!!! Love you so much and THAT scene …when your character just showed up …it was such a defining moment for the show. From that point we had them hooked!!!’

At some point, Patrick Dempsey, who portrayed Derek Shepherd also reacted to the exchange by leaving three hand clapping emojis.
As fans know, Walsh was part of Grey’s Anatomy between 2005 and 2007 and then she went on to star in her own spin-off titled Private Practice.
She did, however, appear on Grey’s Anatomy afterwards as a guest character.
As for Dempsey, he left the show in 2015, after no less than 11 seasons on.
Finally, Pompeo is still very much part of the medical series which just got renewed for two more seasons (16 and 17!)
In 2018, she chatted with ET about her character and when she’ll be departing from it!
‘It’s something Shonda and I will decide together. I’ve been doing it a long time and I do get restless, but the fans are just still so passionate about the show. I think the fans will let us know. When the numbers start to drop and people aren’t watching the same, people aren’t as passionate about it… it’s time to call it,’ she told the news outlet.
