The cast of medical drama Grey's Anatomy has pledged their support to the Hollywood writer's strike by visiting picket lines.

Strikes began earlier this week after talks with studio representatives failed to resolve a dispute over royalties. Picket lines were set up outside studios in Los Angeles and New York, after the Writers Guild of America asked its 12,000 members to stop working.

On Wednesday, protestors at L.A.'s Prospect Studios--where Grey's Anatomy is filmed--were visited by the show's stars Patrick Dempsey, Ellen Pompeo, Sandra OhKatherine Heigl and T.R. Knight

Knight says, "We're supposed to be going until the end of May and right now our last shooting day will be Tuesday or Wednesday.

"As actors, we're paid a different way than the writers, but there's also the crew to keep in mind. They are out of work as of next Wednesday."

Oh adds, "This matter is way too important, not only for our writers, but ultimately everyone who makes movies, everyone who makes entertainment here in this town, and again for the rest of the world."
