Actor and native Mainer Patrick Dempsey, whose character Dr. Derek “McDreamy” Shepherd occasionally sports a Bowdoin T-shirt on the hit ABC show Grey’s Anatomy, is back home this weekend.

During a public appearance at L.L. Bean in Freeport, Dempsey was presented a hat from his character’s alma mater and graciously posed for a photo, saying he’s thrilled to have had the opportunity to wear a Bowdoin T-shirt a few times on the show.
