By Philiana Ng
Jessica Capshaw is reflecting on her time on Grey's Anatomy as her final day of filming approaches.
The 41-year-old actress, who has played Dr. Arizona Robbins since season five, shared on her Instagram story that Tuesday marked her last day on the soundstages that house the Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital set on the Los Angeles lot she's called home for a decade.
"OK, ready for some bananas information? Today is my last day filming at Prospect Studios. Not my last day filming on Grey's Anatomy, but my last day filming at Prospect Studios," Capshaw revealed in the video. "Full of lots of nostalgia."
Capshaw also took to Twitter on Tuesday to tweet about her "last drive" from home to the studio.
"TEN YEARS of commuting to reflect upon in 35 mins...wooaaahhh...," she wrote.
Last drive from home to the studios this morning...TEN YEARS of commuting to reflect upon in 35 mins...wooaaahhh...
In March, ET confirmed that Capshaw, along with longtime castmember Sarah Drew, would be exiting the popular ABC medical drama at the end of the 14th season. It is unclear how the two characters will be written out of the show.
When news of her departure broke, Capshaw took to Twitter with a heartfelt message to her fans.
"For the past 10 years, I have had the rare privilege of not only playing Arizona Robbins, but also being madly in love with playing her," the actress wrote. "Arizona Robbins is kind, intelligent, funny, insightful, bold, playful, fierce and really good at her job. She was one of the first members of the LGBTQ community to be represented in a series regular role on network television. Her impact on the world is permanent and forever, forever. I am grateful that I have gotten to bring her to life and for the life that she has brought to me."
"I am sad to see her go, but I am consoled by the idea that she will continue to live on and on in all of our consciences and our imaginations," Capshaw added. "Shonda, thank you for the ride on this incredible rollercoaster."
