Do not read if you have not yet watched the “Station 19”/“Grey’s Anatomy” crossover event on Nov. 11.
The promotional clip categorically stated that not everyone can survive the crossover episode of “Station No. 19″/”Intern’s Grid” on Thursday night-this is indeed true. Okieriete Onaodowan, who has played Seattle firefighter Dean Miller since “Station 19” premiered in the spring of 2018, has left the ABC TV series.
According to sources, Onaodowan asked to leave “Station No. 19”, which has now entered the fifth season, and felt it was time to move on. In a statement about his departure, he said: “I am very happy to be Dean. I want to thank Shonda Rhimes, Stacy McKee, Krista Vernoff, Paris Barclay and ABC for resurrecting him.
I am grateful to be able to connect with the Internet. The most loving, kind and dedicated staff on TV work together. Most importantly, thank you fans for showing so much love to Dean. I hope he can inspire you to make your world a better place. Change starts with me!”
Onaodowan was an experienced stage actor before joining “Station 19”. He played Hercules Mulligan and James Madison in the original cast of “Hamilton”. Dual role. As part of an actor, he won a Grammy Award at the 2016 awards ceremony. In the episode “Station 19”, Dean almost accepted a job offer to move to Auckland.
There is an opportunity for him to expand Crisis One, a plan he created to send non-violent first responders instead of police to intervene in non-violent emergencies. When Dean weighed the decision, after a gas pipe explosion blew up several houses on a street, Station 19 was called to help.
When they evacuated residents from house to house, another house exploded and Dean was found lying on the ground and blown up. Ben (Jason George) tried to resuscitate him in an ambulance driving to Seattle Grace Hospital, but the episode ended in Dean flat. In the sequel to the “Grey Trainee” story, Dean’s body was taken to an ambulance and Ben stopped chest compressions.
In the rest of this episode, the Station 19 scholarship attempts to deal with news of Dean’s death. Vic (Barrett Doss)-he and Dean are in a willing or unwilling dynamic-is most affected by it.
She has been angry that Dean might leave Seattle, but refuses to go with him when he asks. (However, before he died, they did tell each other that they were in love with each other.) Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson) and Ben adopted Dean’s daughter Pruitt, because Ben made a request to Dean. Promised.
Krista Vernoff, producer of “Gray Zone” and “Station 19”, issued a statement about Onaodowan’s resignation. “Because of the opportunity to collaborate with Okieriete Onaodowan, I am a better artist and human being,” she wrote. “The departure of Dean Miller broke my heart and I can no longer write for Oak. Oak has a broad spirit, is ready and eager for new artistic vision-I really can’t wait to see What will he do next. It will be strong, it will be deep, it will be brave, because the oak tree is all that.”
