Grey’s Anatomy fan favorite Sara Ramirez, who has played Dr. Callie Torres since season two, has exited the show. “I’m deeply grateful to have spent the last 10 years with my family at Grey’s Anatomy and ABC but for now I’m taking some welcome time off,” Ramirez said in a statement. “Shonda’s (the producer) been so incredible to work for and we will definitely continue our conversations! I send my love to Ellen [Pompeo], the rest of the cast and crew, and I look forward to always being a part of the Shondaland family!” While Callie has always identified as bisexual and has dated both men and women during the series, the character’s relationship with Arizona (as well as Ramirez and Capshaw’s chemistry) ranks the couple among TV’s most beloved same-sex couples. Both Callie’s journey as well as Arizona and Callie’s relationship have been singled out for their realistic depiction of same-sex couples.
