Not only is Ellen Pompeo known for her iconic role on Grey’s Anatomy, she’s also known for her unwavering activism and uncanny ability to call out societal issues. During a recent interview, she called out the production crew’s lack of diversity by requesting to see more “color in the room” that’s reflective of the “the world we see” everyday.
