As one of them, actor James Pickens Jr., best known for his role as ‘Dr. Richard Webber‘ the same series, went to his verified Instagram account on May 20, with a photo of himself with Williams. The actor, who also appeared in the science fiction series ‘The X-Files‘ as ‘Deputy Director Alvin Kersh,’ wrote the following note alongside the photo:

“It has been a joy to work together with this talented and thoughtful artist. Keep fighting the good fight, Jesse, not goodbye, will be seeing you soon, this I am sure of.”

“As an actor, director and person, I have been obscenely lucky to learn so much from so many and I thank our beautiful fans, who breathe so much energy and appreciation into our shared worlds. The experience and endurance born of creating nearly 300 hours of leading global television is a gift I’ll carry always.”

During the interview, he stated that he is immensely proud of working with dear friends and incredible crew members.
