Derek Shepherd

 

Derek Shepherd is the Chief of Neurosurgery, an Attending Neurosurgeon, and former Chief of Surgery at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. Derek is often referred to as "McDreamy" by fellow workers, mostly women. In the beginning Derek moves to Seattle to get away from his now ex-wife, Addison Montgomery. She ends up following him out to Seattle which causes lots of drama with the future love of his life, Meredith Grey. In the finale of Season 8 he is in a plane crash with some of the other workers at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. Derek's hand gets severely injured and he thinks it is the end of his career but works hard to get it back to normal. He was on his way to work one day and helped a group of people that had gotten in a crash in front of him. After they were taken to the hospital, Derek was hit by a semi-truck. This lead to his death and he dies in the hospital in the end of Season 11. Derek Shepherd is played by Patrick Dempsey.
