Patrick Dempsey he still wears a mask, but it’s not for the reason Grey’s Anatomy fans would hope.
The McDreamy star published a selfie of himself with a mask, along with the caption: “It’s a beautiful day to save lives. # WearAMask # COVID19 #YourActionsSaveLives”.
Of course, fans of the ABC series immediately had a flashback of Dr. Derek Shepherd in his scrubs. But for others who are not so knowledgeable about all things by Gray, all you need to know is that “It’s a beautiful day to save lives” was one of Dr. Shepherd’s iconic quotes.
While Dr. Shepherd previously shared the mantra before going on dramatic surgeries, the actor is now using it to encourage the equally life-saving measure of wearing a mask during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Dempsey joins his words of encouragement from numerous other celebrities, including Reese Witherspoon is Kerry Washington.
