Mark Sheppard, widely recognized for his role as Crowley in eight seasons of Supernatural, has shared that he successfully emerged from a challenging ordeal — he recently suffered six heart attacks.

“You’re not going to believe this,” Sheppard wrote on Instagram on Saturday, Dec. 2. “Was on my way to an appointment yesterday when I collapsed in my kitchen. Six massive heart attacks later, and being brought back from dead four times, I apparently had a 100 percent blockage in my LAD.”

“If not for my wife, the [Los Angeles Fire Department] at Mulholland, and the incredible staff [at] [Providence California] St Joseph’s — I wouldn’t be writing this. My chances of survival were virtually nil,” he wrote. “I feel great. Humbled once more. Home tomorrow,” he continued.
