Stephanie Edwards, Jerrika Hinton’s character left Grey’s Anatomy in 2017 because the actress disliked Ellen Pompeo. The heroine did not like that her colleague began to take pictures backstage without her permission.
This revelation was made in the book How to Save a Life: The Inside Story of Grey’s Anatomy. Jerrika Hinton stayed in the medical drama for five years, but had an unexpected exit, basically seeing Stephanie disappear from the story.
“Jerica was always laughing, but maybe she was naive. She wasn’t around much, so she didn’t understand Ellen Pompeo’s power. If she had said, ‘Can I take these pictures?’ Maybe Ellen would say, ‘Okay.’ But by doing and not asking, you are setting yourself up for disaster.”
After Meredith’s actress unhappy situation, Jerrika Hinton was “asked to leave Grey’s Anatomy”.
Those involved in the case declined to comment on the revelations made by the book. In 2017, when she left the medical drama, Stephanie Edwards’ interpreter said only that it was “my own decision”.
