Dylan McDermott is reportedly dating co-star Maggie Q. The two appear in crime drama “Stalker,” which airs on CBS. Rumors of the pair's romantic involvement first surfaced last month, when they were photographed grocery shopping in Brentwood, a residential area in Los Angeles.
The pair met on the set of “Stalker,” which started airing on television just this year. McDermott, 53, plays the lead role of Detective Jack Larsen. Q plays his sidekick, Beth Davis.
The show's creator, Kevin Williamson, said that the series was inspired by the true story of model Rebecca Schaeffer, whose death paved the way for the passage of anti-stalking laws in California.
Williamson, who also had a stalker, said on Freenewspos.com, “I had a little brush with stalking after Scream 2. That's when I first became aware of the TMU, the Threat Management Unit, of the LAPD. And I thought, ‘Well, this is a great idea for a TV show.'”
McDermott was married to TV actress Shiva Rose for 13 years before filing for divorce in 2008. They have two daughters, who are 18 and 9.
Q, real name Margaret Quigley, has been romantically linked with Korean-American actor Daniel Henney, as well as Hong Kong actor Daniel Wu, with whom she co-starred in the 2002 action movie “Naked Weapon.” She is also rumored to have dated a married crew member, Thomas Care, whom she met on the set of “Nikita.”
McDermott first appeared in the 1989 film “Twister.” He went on to star in television series “The Practice,” which propelled him to fame. He also starred in “American Horror Story” and “The Grid” with Julianna Margulies.
Maggie Q began her career as a model in Tokyo and Taipei. She relocated to Hong Kong and started a film career, appearing in “Model From Hell” and “Gen-Y Cops.” Action movie star Jackie Chan handpicked her to work alongside him in “Midnight Manhattan” and “Rush Hour 2.” She relocated once again to the United States, where she landed the lead role in The CW series “Nikita.”
