TV Star Brought Back to Life After 6 Heart Attacks

On Friday, “Supernatural” star Mark Sheppard’s life reflected his art.

It truly was something supernatural that he suffered through six heart attacks, miraculously brought back to life by EMTs.

According to Sheppard, he was in his kitchen when he collapsed, and first responders brought him back to life a total of four different times.

Holiday Miracle

There are times when people have heart attacks and do not even realize it is happening.

That surely was not the case with Sheppard.

According to the TV star, the heart attacks were described as “massive,” literally killing him four different times, only to be brought back to life each time.

Sheppard’s left descending artery, nicknamed the “widowmaker,” had a 100% blockage. Very few people survive this health crisis, so he can truly count himself among the lucky.

He also credited his wife and the medical team from St. Joseph’s Hospital, stating, "I wouldn't be writing this. My chances of survival were virtually nil."

His co-stars gave him a good ribbing over the medical emergency, with Misha Collins telling him, "Mark! You don't need to do the most and biggest every time! 6 heart attacks? 2 or 3 would have been impressive enough. You've impressed us, okay. Now stop with this heal up and get back on the road with us. Love you, pal."

Amazingly, Sheppard broke the news that a full recovery is expected and he will actually be headed home soon, stating, "I feel great. Humbled once more. Home tomorrow!"

Sheppard has been acting since 1992, bouncing back and forth between single-appearance gigs on TV shows and bit parts in movies until 2006, when he landed a recurring role on “24.”

That seemed to kick open the door a bit wider for him, landing more recurring roles, with a nice break in “Leverage” playing Jim Sterling.

The really big turn happened for him in 2009, when he landed “Supernatural,” which would run until 2017, with Sheppard appearing in 70 episodes.

He currently has two series that he is involved in: “Walker: Independence” and “Doom Patrol.”
