De son côté, Sarah Drew a posté trois messages sur Instagram. Dans un premier temps, elle dit combien il est difficile de dire au revoir : “C’est dur de dire au revoir au personnage que j’ai joué. C’est toujours comme une petite mort, mais là c’est différent. J’ai vécu avec April pendant neuf mois par ans durant neuf ans.. Elle fait partie de moi. Je fait partie d’elle. Lui dire au revoir est énorme, profond, triste, magnifique et joyeux. (…) C’est une vraie personne pour moi. Elle a traversé beaucoup de joies et de peines. Ses histoires ont touché mon âme. Donc c’est dur de la laisser partir.”

Elle explique ensuite que le personnage lui a apporté beaucoup de choses dans sa vie personnelle et admire profondément April pour sa force et son courage. Elle dit aussi que “la foi d’April a été importante pour moi. Ce fut une grande joie de raconter une histoire honnête sur une personne qui a la foi, authentique, multifacettes et compliquée.”

Thank you @ouafae_japril for putting together this beautiful April collage.☺️☺️ It’s hard to say goodbye to characters I’ve played. It always feels like a little death, but this is different. I’ve lived with April nine months out of the year every year for nine years. She’s a part of me. I’m a part of her. Saying goodbye to her is big and deep and sad and beautiful and joyous. Its all the feelings mashed up into one. Because I’ve spent so much time with her, advocating for her, investing in her journey, she feels like a real person to me. She’s been through a lot of joy and a lot of pain, and I’ve felt that joy and that pain while playing those scenes. Her stories have made their way deep into my soul. So it is hard to let her go. She has taught me about courage, about taking a leap no matter what anyone else says. She has taught me about resilience. She was fired twice and then came back twice with her whole heart ready to throw herself into whatever was put in front of her with no resentment or anger. She lived through unspeakable pain and fought to heal not only herself but her marriage as well. She was beautifully flawed and unapologetic about needing to work through her pain in whatever way was necessary. I admire her courage. I admire her fighting spirit. I admire her ability to speak her mind regardless of what people think of her. And I admire her compassion and empathy. April’s faith journey has been especially important to me. It’s been my great joy to tell an honest story about an authentic, multi-faceted, complicated person of faith with a deeply felt faith journey. April’s journey has made an impact on so many, and it’s been my great privilege to hear their stories and know that through her, I’ve been able to meet people in their own suffering and to offer some comfort to them… to take away 1/60th of their pain (did you catch that reference?). This is truly why I love being an actor. To remind people that they are not alone. I am so grateful to Shonda Rhimes and our incredible team of writers for giving me the opportunity not only to tell this story, but also to participate intimately in the development of her journey.

Elle se dit aussi reconnaissante, de Shonda Rhimes [la créatrice] et les scénaristes qui lui ont “donné l’opportunité de non seulement raconter cette histoire mais aussi de participer intimement au développement de son parcours.

Elle remercie Chandra Wilson (Bailey), Kevin McKidd (Owen) et Debbie Allen (Catherine Avery) pour l’avoir aidé à se lancer dans la réalisation cette année.

My nine years on Grey’s Anatomy has forever shaped and changed me. I grew as an actor and as a human. I developed beautiful life long friendships. I found my voice and learned how to collaborate creatively with our incredibly talented group of writers and with our leadership. Our writers are simply extraordinary. This past year, I began my journey as a director and had the privilege of being taught by Chandra Wilson, Kevin McKidd and Debbie Allen. I was able to grow my family and have my two beautiful children while working in an environment that took great care of me thanks to Shonda Rhimes and the precedent she set. And I got to be a part of a show that continues to push boundaries, inspire people to pursue their dreams, find strength in hardship, and fight for what they believe in. What an honor and a privilege to have had the chance to be a part of this extraordinary family.

Pour finir, elle remercie bien évidemment les fans qui ont soutenu April et se sont battu pour elle. “Je ne peux pas partir sans vous remercier VOUS tous. Les fans de Grey’s Anatomy sont parmis les plus passionnés que j’ai jamais rencontré. Merci pour toutes les années d’encouragement, de participation et d’amour. Vous est une FORCE !!! Je vous aime.”

Grey’s Anatomy revient a saison prochaine, sans Sarah Drew et Jessica Capshaw.
