During a new interview with E! News, the 36-year-old actress talked about the surprising ending moment that featured the return of Patrick Dempsey‘s Dr. Derek Shepherd, revealing that she was one of the lucky ones that knew about his return.
“I found out from [showrunner] Krista [Vernoff],” Camilla shared. “I didn’t know that some actors didn’t know. I thought we all knew, but I guess we didn’t.”
“There’s something about this…this is weird,” Camilla remembers thinking. “And then Krista told me it was Patrick, and I was thinking to myself there’s no way these two actors are going to go to the beach in the middle of the day with a ton of crew and a picture isn’t gonna be taken, or it’s not gonna leak, or someone’s not gonna say something. And it didn’t. I’m so happy because it would have spoiled this amazing surprise for the fans last night.”
