Debra Messing and Will Chase Break Up Details
Debra Messing and Will Chase are now broken up - check out the details of their split below.
The 'Smash' co-stars - who met on the set of the musical drama series - have gone their separate ways after almost three years of dating but will remain in contact as ''close friends''.
A representative for the 46-year-old actress told Us Weekly magazine: ''Debra Messing and Will Chase have ended their two-and-a-half year relationship but remain close friends.''
Though the pair didn't speak much about their relationship, Debra - who split from husband Daniel Zelman, the father of her 10-year-old son Roman - previously revealed she had a lot of ''fun'' working on 'Smash' with Will, 44, and their other co-star Katharine McPhee.
She said soon after she and Will started dating: ''The amount of fun I'm having on this show is so ridiculous -- off the charts already.
''The cast is so accomplished, so committed.''
And their romance didn't come as a surprise to the cast and crew of the Broadway drama.
Director Michael Mayer said: ''On Broadway, we call it a 'showmance'. That's where people meet and fall in love.
''I don't know where Debra and Will would have met [otherwise]. So 'Smash' brought them together. And the context of their onscreen relationship, I'm sure that triggered a lot.''
Since 'Smash' was cancelled in spring 2013, Debra has gone on to work on 'The Mysteries of Laura', which debuted last month, while Will - who has teenage daughters, Daisy and Gracie, from his first marriage - has a recurring role on 'Nashville'.
