Known to Grey's Anatomy fanatics as the luscious Dr. Mark "McSteamy" Sloane, Eric Dane was born in 1972 in San Fransico, California.
Before landing his fame-making role on the hit hospital drama, he was featured in television shows such as The Wonder Years, Roseanne, and Gideon's Crossing, for which he also donned a pair of scrubs on-set playing Dr. Wyatt Cooper.
Dane married Rebecca Gayheart (Vanished, Beverly Hills 90210) in October 2004. The couple's wedding was spontaneous, and reports say the duo took a quick trip to Las Vegas to marry, asking the taxi driver who shuttled them from the airport to serve as the best man in their ceremony.
Gayheart gave birth to the couple's first child, a daughter Billie, in March 2010.
