Actor Eric McCormack’s Wife Janet Holden Files for Divorce After 26 Years of Marriage

Janet Holden, the wife of Canadian-American actor Eric McCormack, has filed for divorce after more than 26 years of marriage.


According to TMZ, the 60-year-old actor’s estranged wife filed the application at a courthouse on Wednesday, November 22, alleging ‘irreconcilable differences.’
The Hollywood director, who married McCormack in 1997, did not provide a date of divorce.


According to the magazine, Janet is seeking spousal support and wants to ‘eliminate the court’s ability to grant Eric spousal support.

The Canadian actor, best known for his role as Will Truman on the classic NBC sitcom, and Janet have one child, Finnigan Holden McCormack, 21.


It’s unknown whether McCormack and Holden have a prenuptial agreement.


This year, the couple was spotted together on July 24, while attending the opening night after party for The Cottage on Broadway in New York City, where they posed for a sweet photo together.


They also attended the 31st Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards viewing party in March, which was hosted at West Hollywood Park.


The duo first met in 1994 on the set of the Lonesome Dove TV show in Canada, on which he starred and she was an assistant director.


‘I met my wife, Janet, in 1994 on the set of a TV series. She was the assistant director. I was just coming out of a relationship, and not to be trusted. I’d been dating actresses but Janet was different. She wore jeans, drove a pick-up truck,’ he told The Guardian about the start of their romance in 2007. 


‘There was a little bit of mystery and danger, which was fun,’ Holden previously told People.


The pair tied the knot on August 3, 1997, and welcomed Finnigan on July 1, 2002.


Five months after they said ‘I do’ McCormack landed the part of his iconic TV character on Will & Grace.
