One of the most successful stars from "Grey’s Anatomy," Eric Dane, has taken an indefinite hiatus from the upcoming show, “The Last Ship,” to fight against anxiety and depression.

A representative for the series claims that production halts on “The Last Ship,” allowing Eric Dane to recover. He is suffering from depression and has had been very open about his health problems. In 2011, Dane announced that he was going to rehab for an addiction to drugs and alcohol. Two years earlier, Eric and his wife, Rebecca Gayheart, were criticized for the nude video clip with former Miss Teen USA, Kari Ann Peniche.

This led Dane to suffer from anxiety and depression, and since then, he is under the supervision of a doctor.

Eric Dane as an actor

According to Variety, the Michael Bay-produced series has gone on hiatus through the end of this month as Eric is unwell. Born in 1972, Dane is a popular Americana celebrity. His most notable works are “Charmed,” “Grey's Anatomy,” “Marley & Me,” “Valentine's Day”, “Burlesque,” and “The Last Ship.”

Dane tied the knot with Rebecca Gayheart in October 2004 after a relationship of two years. He has two daughters with her, Billie Beatrice Dane (born in 2010) and Georgia Geraldine Dane (born in 2011).

Eric and his wife remained in the headlines due to a nude video clip. The two were criticized on social media and threatened to be killed because of this tape. As a result, the actor developed an addiction to painkillers and suffered from severe sports injuries.
