Once Kate Walsh leaves to star in her own spinoff, the set of Grey's Anatomy just won't be the same, says her costar Sara Ramirez.

"I think she is amazing, and I am going to miss her to death," Ramirez said Wednesday at a party in New York for People En Espanol's "50 Most Beautiful" issue.

"[Kate] is an enormously talented woman, and I think she is so much fun to watch," added Ramirez. "I wish her continued success."

Walsh's character, Dr. Addison Montgomery-Shepherd, is leaving Seattle Grace for a new life in California as the basis for her new show, Private Practice.

Asked about Walsh's real-life plans to marry Alex Young, a production co-president at 20th Century Fox, Ramirez says: "They're lovely people. I hope it'll be a beautiful wedding."

Walsh, 39, announced their engagement earlier this week.

As for her own career, the Spamalot Tony-winning Ramirez, who plays Dr. Callie Torres on Grey's, says she relishes the idea of being a role model for women.

"I'm very proud to be in this business at this particular time, and I just hope the opportunity will continue to come where I can show the world that there are other sizes, other personalities," she said. "Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes."
