Eric Dane News





Eric Dane, 34, is the oldest of two brothers. His father was an architect and interior designer based in San Francisco, where Eric was born. Dane married actress Rebecca Gayheart on October 29, 2004.

Dane's first major feature film appearance was in the 1999 film The Basket, a movie about a small town near Spokane, Washington during World War I.

He has also appeared in the films Sol Goode, Feast, Open Water 2, and as the character of Multiple Man (Jamie Madrox) in the 2006 film X-Men: The Last Stand.

On the small screen, Dane has a number of guest star credits with his appearances on Charmed, Roseanne, Married with Children, Silk Stalkings, and Zoe, Duncan, Jack & Jane.

He has appeared in several made-for-TV films, including Serving in Silence, about Margarethe Cammermeyer. He also appeared in the 2004 remake of the Manson family biopic, Helter Skelter, as a member of the Manson clan.

Dane had recurring roles on the shows Gideon's Crossing (ABC's short-lived medical drama), The American Embassy, and Charmed. He appeared in seasons five and six as Phoebe Halliwell's year-long boyfriend, Jason Dean.

In early 2006, Dane made an appearance on Grey's Anatomy as Dr. Mark Sloan, nicknamed "McSteamy," who is the catalyst behind the infamous breakup of Derek and Addison Shepherd.

Positive response to his appearance led to Dane being a contract player for the show's third season, and his first appearance in the season has been labeled a "watercooler moment" in a scene with the aformentioned married couple. Dane appeared in the last scene of the episode, as fans are not soon to forget, kwearing only a strategically placed towel.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
