Is McSteamy Going Gray on Purpose?

01/04/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

Is it just us, or has anyone else noticed that Grey’s Anatomy‘s Dr McSteamy’s (a.k.a. Eric Dane) lovs are subtly growing more gray? While flecks of salt and pepper can make a character look more distinguished — consider it the male equivalent of Jessica Alba donning librarian glasses — Infusium 23 colorist Lisa Chiccine tells PEOPLE that it’s a difficult look to achieve artificially. “If you don’t believe me, check out Tom Cruise in Collateral,” she quips. So how does a hot TV doctor go gray gracefully? “I think that Dr. McSteamy has actually been gray for awhile and his colorist is covering it up less to give him a more distinguished look for the show,” says Chiccine. “They’re probably adding product to give his hair more shine.” Whatever the process, we’re not complaining. Tell us: Do you like McSteamy with the gray? Should he keep it?

His colorist is doing a great job. He does look more distinguished with the bits of gray. It suits him well.

As long as his beard goes gray as well, then it is OK . . . I’ve thought it looks a little off with the dark beard and silver hair.

Who cares! He is fine no matter what!

He should definitely keep doing whatever he’s doing… as far as I know… no one is complaining– especially not me!!
