That’s what Kate Walsh is doing today

In “Grey’s Anatomy”, “Addison Montgomery” is one of the cult characters of the series for many fans. Kate Walsh (53) joined in 2005 at the end of the first season. She surprised her husband “Derek” (Patrick Dempsey) and his new girlfriend “Meredith” (Ellen Pompeo) – which is still one of the most famous scenes in the series.

Even if “Addison” was initially between the series dream couple “Derek” and “Meredith”, she could quickly become a fan favorite in the series. As an expert in neo-natology and gynecology, “Addison” cured numerous babies.
