The star of Bridget Jones’s Baby recently sat down for a Facebook Live interview with Cosmopolitan U.K. where the interviewer asked him to recall which Grey’s Anatomy scene was his favorite to shoot.
Given the fact that Dempsey spent more than a decade playing Dr. McDreamy (aka Derek Shepherd) on the hit medical drama, the actor had to think for a moment before deciding his all-time favorite.
“I have to say my favorite really was the pilot because we didn’t know what was going to happen, and then there was that sense of discovery,” said Dempsey according to EW. “When I saw it for the first time, I thought the music was incredible and it was fun to be a part of such a strong ensemble. That was special. That first season was really remarkable.”
We’re pretty sure it’s safe to say that we’ve all got our favorite McDreamy moment, but the fact that Dempsey’s happens to take place in the very beginning, is adorably fitting. We’ll certainly never forget how quickly we fell in love with the idea of Meredith and Derek in that very first episode, and it’s clear Dempsey hasn’t either!
