Patrick Dempsey looks unrecognizable with his platinum blonde hair at the D23 Expo in Anaheim

Patrick Dempsey was almost unrecognizable during his appearance at the 2022 Disney Legends Awards at Disney’s D23 Expo in Anaheim on Friday.

Instead of his signature salt and pepper headdress, the 56-year-old actor debuted bleached blonde hair as he addressed convention attendees.

Wow! Patrick Dempsey was almost unrecognizable during his appearance at the 2022 Disney Legends Awards at Disney’s D23 Expo in Anaheim on Friday. Instead of his signature salt and pepper headdress, the 56-year-old actor debuted bleached blonde hair as he addressed convention attendees

His jacket was worn over a white button-up shirt with pink pinstripes.

With his new look on full display, Dempsey took to the stage at the ceremony to accept his very own Disney Legend trophy.

Disney legend is a Hall of Fame for people who have made enormous contributions to The Walt Disney Company, by Disney CEO Bob Chapek.

Maine-born Grey’s Anatomy co-star Ellen Pompeo, black-ish stars Anthony Anderon and Tracee Ellis Ross, Black Panther actor Chadwick Boseman and Frozen stars Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad also received status, among others.

While Dempsey is perhaps best known for his work on ABC’s hit medical drama Grey’s Anatomy, he’s also reprising his role from a beloved Disney film.

Dempsey will grace the screen alongside Amy Adams as popular characters from Disney’s Enchanted in the film’s sequel, Disenchanted.

The first trailer for the film, which is scheduled for release in November on Disney+, was unveiled on Friday during the D23 Expo.

Disenchanted will follow Giselle (Adams), the animated princess who fell in love in New York in the first film, as she and Robert (Dempsey) move to the suburbs.

James Marsden and Idina Menzel also reprise their roles for the fantasy film.

“Working with everyone again after 14 years is really exciting,” Dempsey told Variety in April 2021.

“We need escape right now. We need these romantic comedies and musicals to get people out of the mess we’re in.

While the start of the trailer shows Giselle and Robert ready to take the plunge and get moving, the tone quickly goes downhill.

The house they move into is run down, with electrical issues and other issues. Saturday Night Live alum Maya Rudolph plays a condescending neighbor in the trailer.

Frustrated with her situation, Giselle wishes for a fairytale life even though it doesn’t seem to be all she hoped for.

Adam Shankman, the director of Hairspray, Bedtime Stories and Rock of Ages helmed the film.
