Martin played hot cardio doc “Dr. Nathan Riggs.” He joined the cast in season 12, episode 6 and ended his run on the popular ABC drama with the 5th episode in season 14.
The door wasn’t completely closed on the character or the actor’s relationship with Shondaland.
Series creator Shonda Rhimes expressed in a statement to Variety:
“I loved that we were able to give Riggs a happy ending worthy of his character and talent,” executive producer Shonda Rhimes said in a statement sent to Variety.
And although this marks the end for Henderson on Rhimes’ medical drama, she promised that she was not closing the door on their relationship or potential additional collaborations. “He has been part of the Shondaland family since the pilot of ‘Inside the Box,’ and he will always be family. I can’t wait to find a new project to work with him on in the future,” she continued.
