Grey's Anatomy is back in the prime time line up, which gives the veiwing public plenty of time to see Patrick Dempsey in action as Dr. Derek Shepherd. The peircing gaze, the wistful smile, the husky whisper. What's not to love?
No longer type cast as a teen idol (remember Can't Buy Me Love?), he's been making the leading man rounds, delivering dynamite performances in movies like Sweet Home Alabama and his current outing, Freedom Writers.
As a neurosurgeon with a mysterious nature that has viewers wondering where he stands with both his ex-wife and his new love, we all tune in to see whether his take charge nature will have him grabbing Meredith for a kiss or pulling her into the car for a drive and a quickie.
Aside from his Grey's persona, there are more reasons to love Patrick. And I'm not talking about his skills as a pupeteer, juggler, unicycler, or magician (though if you are writing a romance set in a circus, they could help). He loves the speed of race cars as well as staying home with his make-up artist wife, their daughter, and soon to arrive twin boys!
Thanks all for letting me gush and look for McSteamy in February!!
