“I think they let me go,” he told the host, explaining that he was struggling with addiction at the time. “They didn’t release me for that reason, although that certainly didn’t help.

Act like you were there, but you weren’t.”

Dane is currently portrayed by Cal Jacobs trancethe father of Nate Jacobs (Jacob Elordi), and one of the few adult characters on the show.
