T.R. Knight, Former ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Star, Marries Longtime Boyfriend Patrick Leahy
T.R. Knight, best known for playing George O’Malley on Grey’s Anatomy, married his boyfriend of three years, Patrick Leahy, on Oct. 4.
"It [was] very small and quiet," an insider told Us Weekly, who described the guest list as a combination of close friends and family. In attendance were Knight’s former Greys costars Katherine Heigl and Kate Walsh. Heigl shared photobooth pictures from the happy affair with Walsh, her husband Josh Kelly and a pal.

Knight, 40, came out as gay back in 2006, but has since kept relatively quiet about his love life. "I guess there have been a few questions about my sexuality, and I'd like to quiet any unnecessary rumors that may be out there," Knight said in a statement to People. "While I prefer to keep my personal life private, I hope the fact that I'm gay isn't the most interesting part of me.”
After he finished his run on Grey’s in 2009, Knight has appeared in Jackie Robinson biopic 42 and had a recurring role on The Good Wife as Jordan Karahalios. He’s currently starring as Mercutio in the Classic Stage Company’s off-Broadway production of Romeo and Juliet alongside William Hurt and Elizabeth Olsen.
