Why did Okieriete Onaodowan leave Station 19? As you are probably aware of at this point, the character of Dean Miller is no longer with us. His death in this past episode is one of the most devastating moments in the history of the firefighter drama, and that’s saying something given that we’ve seen a number of characters killed off in the past.
If you have not heard the news just yet, Okieriete Onaodowan is leaving Station 19 and his character of Dean Miller. What happened on Thursday’s crossover is emotional and still difficult to process — Dean’s death will create huge shockwaves in the firehouse, and as an actor Oak was beloved among many of the cast and crew. You can get a great sense of that from a lot of the love they have shared his way on social media after the fact.
Okieriete Onaodowan, who exited the ABC first responders drama with last night's crossover with Grey's Anatomy, was one of five remaining from the original cast. "What a pleasure it has been to go from watching you grace the Broadway stage to witnessing Dean in action on screen," tweeted Shonda Rhimes. "Wishing you the very best!"
Why did Okieriete Onaodowan leave Station 19 and his role of Dean Miller during tonight’s Grey’s Anatomy crossover? Why kill that character off? Obviously, we’ve got a lot of questions on this subject right now. We’re talking about a big, important character within this world and someone who was there from the very beginning.
Is Okieriete Onaodowan leaving Station 19 following tonight’s big Grey’s Anatomy crossover event, and is Dean Miller dead?. We know that entering this big event, there were a handful of big theories floating around out there that Miller could be the character who died. Ben, for example, was the one set up as being in danger in the promo — rarely is the person in the preview ever killed off! Meanwhile, Andy is the star of the show and it was hard to imagine them taking out either Maya or Carina so soon after their wedding. We’re not sure Sullivan has fully redeemed himself as of yet, and we do think that character needs a little more time on-screen.
