Ellen Pompeo has not spoken to Gray's Anatomy co-star Patrick Dempsey since he left the show

For more than a decade, Gray's Anatomy fans were invested in Meredith Gray and Derek Shepherd's relationship.

But while actors Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey had a huge chemistry on the screen, you may be a little disappointed to know that they have not kept in touch since Dempsey left in 2015.

Speaking on Red Table Talk with Jada Pinkett Smith, Pompeo reserved a high praise for her former co-star.

"We have not spoken since he's left the show," she said.

"It's a great actor, and we made the best TV you can make together." He's a talented man right there.

"Typically, when people leave the show, they have to sort of re-find themselves, who they are without the show, because the show takes so much of your life. You need that time to figure out who you are without the show .

"So, we have not spoken, but I will always have a place in my heart for Patrick."

Derek was killed in 2015 as he was involved in a car accident.

In 2016, Dempsey said that he felt he stayed on the hit medical drama for too long.

"It was time for me to move on with other things and other interests," he said. "I probably should have moved a couple of years earlier. I stayed a bit longer than I should have."

Gray's Anatomy airs on ABC in the USA and on Sky Living and NOW TV in the UK.
