What the Grey’s Anatomy set actually looked like during that disgusting Isaiah Washington moment

Isaiah Washington’s heated exchange with his Grey’s Anatomy co-star Patrick Dempsey is detailed in Lynette Rice’s book. “How to Save a Life: The Inside Story of Grey’s Anatomy”. But it was not just a war of words. In the book, producer Mark Wilding recalled that once one of the stars was late to the set, so the other decided to give him a taste of his own medicine. “Then it kind of exploded,” Wilding said. “They got into a contentious match and then before you know it, they were physically fighting.”

Writer Harry Werksman said that Washington pushed Dempsey against the wall and told him, “You can’t talk to me the way you talk to that little TR bastard.” People. Crew member Marty Carrillo added that after Washington pinned Dempsey to the wall, Katherine Heigl and James Pickens Jr. broke up the fight. “Everyone had to leave the set,” he added. Today. “Everyone went to [showrunner] Shonda [Rhimes’] office… People scream, that’s for sure, but real physical things are very rare. I’ve never seen this before.”

While Washington lost his lead role in the series, his character returned years later. IN 2014, Hollywood Reporter announced that Washington would return to Grey’s Anatomy for one episode to complete the storyline of Sandra Oh’s character Christina Yang. “It is important to me that Christina’s journey unfolds exactly as it should. Burke is vital to this journey – he gives her story that full circle moment we need to properly say goodbye to our beloved Cristina Young,” Rhimes said in a statement.
