On the set of the CBS TV series Lonesome Dove, the ex-couple initially got together in 1994. At the time, Eric played Col. Francis Clay Mosby, and Janet was the assistant director.

After getting married in August 1997, the couple welcomed their only child, a son named Finnigan Holden McCormack, into their family five years later.

The first official picture Eric and Janet had taken together was from the 1994 Lonesome Dove wrap party, which he posted back in April 2020 on Instagram but it has now been deleted.

He wrote in the caption, “This is the first shot Janet & I took at the #LonesomeDove Season 1 Wrap Party, circa Dec ’94. Just so happens that this was our ‘coming out’ party. No one on the show knew we’d been dating for months.🤯.”

In a 2007 interview titled “What I know about women,” Eric revealed small pieces about his relationship with Janet to The Guardian.

He said, “I met my wife, Janet, in 1994 on the set of a TV series. She was the assistant director. I was just coming out of a relationship, and not to be trusted. I’d been dating actresses but Janet was different. She wore jeans, and drove a pick-up truck.”

Eric continued, “At first she wasn’t too keen. She knew actors are a lot of work: it would be like taking your work home with you.”

He added further, “But I managed to convince her. We had a secret affair in the first season. I mean, dating crew! Actually, it was much worse for her, because she wasn’t supposed to give any of the actors preferential treatment.”
