She blew audiences away as Callie with all of the ups and downs and dramatically different storylines the character took-on, and sadly after 13 seasons, called an end to her career on Grey’s. She will be one of the most missed out of all the Grey’s characters that have exited the show, so get to know the star behind Callie Torres!
