Ellen Pompeo will go from in front of the camera to behind it when she makes her directorial debut on an upcoming episode of Grey's Anatomy, The Hollywood Reporter says. Pompeo will yell "CUT!" sometime in February, and the episode will air at a later date to be determined.
Pompeo has played Meredith Grey on the ABC soap for 13 seasons and almost than 280 episodes. Though she has no directorial experience, Grey is well versed on the production side. Her production company Calamity Jane has sold multiple projects to various networks.
Pompeo在ABC播了13季的美剧《实习医生格蕾》中扮演了13年的Meredith Grey，加起来超过280集了。虽然她之前并没有过导演经验，但是她在制作方面也不是一片空白。她有自己的制作公司Calamity Jane。
She won't be the first Grey's Anatomy actor to helm an episode. Kevin McKidd and Chandra Wilson have both directed more than a dozen episodes of the Shonda Rhimes series.
