From Physician to Patient! Get a Sneak Peek of Ellen Pompeo's Role on Doc McStuffins

Posted on

 

Ellen Pompeo is used to portraying a doctor on TV in Grey’s Anatomy. But now, she’s playing a patient.

The actress, 47, has lent her voice to the wildly popular Disney Junior animated series Doc McStuffins. Pompeo plays a stuffed cat named Willow, who visits the McStuffins Toy Hospital after she takes a tumble and bends her whiskers.

To help Willow out, the medical team performs — what else? — a CAT scan, discovering she has a whisker stuck to the inside of her cheek.

Pompeo and her husband Chris Ivery recently welcomed their son Eli Christopher, and are already parents to daughters Sienna May, 2, and Stella Luna, 7. Shortly after the announcement, she shared an adorable video of herself dancing with her new little man.
