Grey’s Anatomy season 16 boss confirms Sophia Ali’s exit as Qadri

Sophia AliFollowing last night’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy season 16, we knew that we were losing Dr. Dahlia Qadri from the Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. Yet, there were still questions as to whether or not she’d be gone for good.

Well, now some of that information has been confirmed. In a new post on Twitter, executive producer Krista Vernoff has made it 100% clear that Ali, who has been a part of the series the past few years, is departing to take on some film/TV opportunities in New Zealand. We do understand the decision, mostly because it feels like the world could end up being her metaphorical oyster with a lot of potential gigs opening up for her. Being a part of Grey’s Anatomy can be a wonderfully rewarding experience, but also challenging if you’re looking for a meatier role or a good bit of screen time. It’s a show with a huge cast, including a number of established leads. It’s hard to find a way to get a ton of time to stand out there.

So does this mean that Grey’s Anatomy could bring in some other interns in due time? It’s possible, but remember that even with Ali’s departure, there are still well over a dozen other metaphorical mouths to feed. Qadri will be missed, but the show will go on and continue to produce a number of other great storylines. Meanwhile, Ali has an opportunity to spread her wings and try some different things creatively. There are opportunities all around, and given that this seems to be an amicable exit, we imagine that there will be some opportunities for potential returns down the line if the stars align properly.
