Eric Dane Is Battling Depression, 'Last Ship' Production Halted

Eric Dane is taking a break from his hit show The Last Ship as he battles depression.

The 44-year-old former Grey’s Anatomy actor requested that production of the show be halted through Memorial Day as he takes some time off to relax, Variety reports.

Eric asked for a break to deal with personal issues,” a rep for Eric said. “He suffers from depression and has asked for a few weeks of downtime and the producers kindly granted that request. He looks forward to returning.”

Season four of The Last Ship is set to premiere this summer, and should not be effected by this hiatus. The show has already been renewed for a fifth season, which is already in production.

Eric has been married to Rebecca Gayheart for 13 years and share two daughters together.
