While you’re on a successful show, things can happen behind the scene to shift things. A possible recast or being completely written out are some possibilities. One actress fell victim, and she’s been handling it on her own terms.

Not On Her Radar

In 2009, Sarah Drew joined Grey’s Anatomy as Dr. April Kepner. Her performance on the show landed her a series regular slot in the seventh season. Unfortunately, she left the show last season.

During an event in Los Angeles, she was asked if she’s been keeping up with the current season. Unfortunately, she’s not. “I haven’t been watching. You know, it‘s a little painful to kind of go and watch your family move on without you,” she said.

Creative Has Nothing For You

Drew’s exit stemmed from producers not wanting to have her character just standing there. “They didn’t want any of us to be left in the background and not getting much of a story. Because there were so many series regulars, they needed to downsize and to find some characters that they felt like they could tie up their stories well,” she told Entertainment Weekly.

Upon hearing news that she was leaving, Drew had immense feelings of sorrow. The actress doesn’t have any ill will towards anyone on staff, though. “I got to work with Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers and learn from the best. I got to work with an incredible community of people that I will have lifelong friendships with,” she told The Hollywood Reporter.

Picking It Back Up

Before leaving the show, Drew started working on the Cagney & Lacey reboot. The show found her portraying Christine Cagney. Unfortunately, the show didn’t get picked up by CBS.
