Knight tied the knot with longtime boyfriend Patrick on Friday, Us Weekly reports, in an intimate ceremony in front of family and friends, including Heigl, who flew in for the ceremony. “It [was] very small and quiet,” an insider tells the magazine.
Though Heigl was in attendance, Knight’s current A-list costars from the Classic Stage Company’s off-Broadway production of “Romeo & Juliet” in NYC, Elizabeth Olson and William Hurt, were unable to attend due to their performance schedules. “[The] cast [wished] they could go too, but they all congratulated him,” the source adds. Knight was absent from the role of Mercutio at the Friday and Saturday showings to celebrate his nuptials.
Knight rose to fame playing Dr. George O’Malley on “Grey’s Anatomy” from 2005 to 2009. A year after he departed the series, Heigl, admits much controversy and bitterness, followed suit.
