Patrick Dempsey dropped out of high school to tour as a juggler and magician, and he eventually segued into theater.
During the late 1980s, Dempsey became a teen heartthrob after being cast in the romantic comedies "Heaven Help Us," "Can't Buy Me Love" and "Loverboy." He made the transition to television in the 1990s, landing several recurring roles on sitcoms and drama series, including an Emmy-nominated performance for "Once & Again" in 2001. In 2004, he co-starred in HBO's acclaimed "Iron-Jawed Angels" with Hilary Swank and Anjelica Huston.
In 2005, Dempsey took on the role of Dr. Derek Shepherd, also known as "Dr. McDreamy," on the hit medical drama "Grey's Anatomy." The series debuted on ABC as a midseason replacement and has since become one of the most highly rated shows on television. Audiences have adored his portrayal of the sensitive doctor and been intrigued by the on-again, off-again relationship between his character and Dr. Meredith Grey played by Ellen Pompeo. Dempsey has earned both a Screen Actors Guild Award and a People's Choice Award for his work on the series.
In addition to his work on "Grey's Anatomy," Dempsey has taken on a few film roles. He reunited with former co-star Hilary Swank for "Freedom Writers." In this drama, Swank played a teacher trying to improve the lives of her at-risk youths and Dempsey appeared as her husband. In his next film project, he took a romantic comedy with a fantastical twist. Dempsey stars in Enchanted as a lawyer who falls for a princess from long ago who has been sent to modern times by an evil queen.
Dempsey's most recent roles include the 2008 film "Made of Honor" as Tom and the 2010s romantic comedy "Valentine's Day." Dempsey starred as Dylan Gould in the 2011 movie "Transformers: Dark of the Moon," and as of 2012, he is set to star in the romantic comedy "Wonderful Tonight."
