Set Tour

When we first arrived on the Grey’s Anatomy set we were greeted by Jessica Capshaw. We stood in the ER area of the “hospital” where the ambulances drive up on the show. It was so neat to see how the sets are created and come to life before our eyes.Grey's Anatomy Set Tour Visit

We were able to tour the Grey + Sloan Memorial Hospital where the actors work on set. It’s amazing to see how real the set is and as close to a real-life hospital as possible. To see everything that goes in to these shows is unbelievable how life-like they can make them and how you are drawn in to them through your screen.Grey's Anatomy Set Tour

We even got to tour Meredith and Derek’s dream house as pictured below.

Costumes

Jessica Capshaw continued our tour into a large room where they had props and costumes on display. She introduced us to costume designer Mimi Melgaard who was great at answering any questions we had about the scrubs and gorgeous gowns.

Props

Grey’s Anatomy props master, Angela Whiting, gave us some amazing demonstrations and showed us the props used on set. She showed us the amazing prosthetics and animatronics like the heart below. Isn’t it amazing to see how these come to life on television?

Some of the props pictured have not been seen on the show in a long time such as the Anatomy Jane. Other props had been on the show as recently as the past week. Check out all of these great pictures I caught of the props.

Visit with Cast Members

Besides being able to interview and visit with Angela Whiting and Mimi Melgaard, we got the chance to speak with Sarah Drew and Jessica Capshaw. We also had a surprise visit from Justin Chambers and Camilla Luddington… oh my gosh, cutest things ever! We got to learn more about their characters, the show and what’s it like being in one of televisions most popular series. Sarah Drew is super spunky and I absolutely loved her in the upcoming movie Mom’s Night Out.
