Camilla Luddington is setting the record straight on the masks that she and her co-stars are wearing on the new season of Grey’s Anatomy.
After getting back to work on the show in September, and the premiere happening just last week, one viewer pointed out that the cast were seen wearing KN95 masks and that they didn’t need to be “wasting” them when they could be donated to real life healthcare professionals.
“If you see any of us wearing KN95s behind the scenes it’s because we are wearing our costume masks. We don’t also get an extra KN95 to wear between takes,” Camilla pointed out.

In these moments, I really believe that the good comes out [in people].”
Over the weekend, Camilla also spoke about the surprise return of Patrick Dempsey. Here’s what she said…
