Mark Sheppard, one of the stars of the Supernatural series, almost lost his life on Friday after suffering six heart attacks in a row.

The 59-year-old actor, who starred in Crowley in the popular fantasy series, said in a post he made from the hospital that he was in his kitchen when he collapsed. He acknowledged that he was saved thanks to the quick intervention of his wife and paramedics.

Those who treated him described him as suffering a series of "massive heart attacks." They had to bring him back to life four times, he already had a hundred percent blockage in his left anterior descending artery.

The actor, who was admitted to St. Joseph's Hospital, wrote from there that without the help of his wife and paramedics "I wouldn't be writing this. My chances of survival were practically nil."

"I feel great. Humiliated once again," he clarified to reassure his fans and loved ones.

In addition to Supernatural, the Brit is known for his roles in the series Doctor Who, NCIS and The X-Files and in the films In the Name of the Father (the first) and Unstoppable. He most recently appeared in Doom Patrol and Walker: Independence.

Sheppard was the son of William Sheppard, a renowned London actor who worked in more than 100 productions over a 50-year career. Although he excelled in theater, William appeared in several installments of the Star Trek saga and the TV series MacGyver.

Network support

Many former co-stars expressed their support in Sheppard's Instagram post.

Misha Collins, for example, wrote, "Mark! You don't need to do the biggest and greatest every time! Six heart attacks? Two or three would have been pretty impressive. You've impressed us, haven't you? Now stop this, heal yourself and get back on the road with us. I love you, friend."

Other Supernatural actors, including Felicia Day, Osric Chau, Alaina Huffman, Samantha Smith and Alexander Calvert also wished him a speedy recovery.

His is one of the most relevant characters in Supernatural.

Matt Bomer, who knows him from White Collar, noted, "I'm glad you're OK, Mark."

On the other hand, Michelle Gomez, an actress who co-starred with him in Doom Patrol, wrote, "I'm so sorry you had to go through something like this. But you, my friend, have been saved to do great things. A huge love."
