GLAAD ‘Disheartened’ by ‘Grey’s’ Exit

Nov 5, 2008  •  Post A Comment

With Brooke Smith exiting ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” after the Nov. 6 episode, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation is saddened to see her character, Dr. Erica Hahn, go, given the current dearth of gay, lesbian and bisexual characters on television, TV Guide reports. In a statement, GLAAD president Neil. G. Giuliano said, “[W]e are disheartened that the burgeoning relationship between Callie and Erica on ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ has come to an end. Because there are so few lesbian characters on network television, we hope that ABC and ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ will commit to further developing Callie’s character and her relationships, and continue providing this important representation on one of TV’s most-watched shows.” Orthopedic surgeon Dr. Callie Torres is played by Tony winner Sara Ramirez.
