Eric Dane is loving Nantucket

N Magazine

The June issue of N magazine is out Tuesday and “Grey’s Anatomy” star
Eric Dane
is on the cover. Why, you ask, is an actor who grew up in San Francisco on the cover of a magazine for and about Nantucket? Because he’s shooting a movie on the island that is written and directed by longtime Nantucket resident John Shea. Called “Grey Lady,” the movie costarring Natalie Zea and Amy Madigan is about a Boston cop who goes to Nantucket to investigate the murder of his partner and finds more than he expected. “It’s amazing that they actually let us film on this island — it’s so beautiful,” Dane tells the mag. “It’s also amazing that other films haven’t been shot here, but I think that’s a testament to this town and how they want to conserve the beauty of this place.” In fact, another movie has been shooting on the island in recent days. Jacqueline Bisset and Gordon Clapp have been shooting “Peter and John,” a drama directed by Jay Craven.
