Dempsey expressed his nerves in the lead-up to the auction, tweeting: "In Seattle , big day tomorrow ! Hope we pull it off !"

Celebrating his victory afterwards, he wrote: "We met the green monster, looked her in the eye, and...SHE BLINKED! We got it! Thank you Seattle!"

The actor then updated his followers as he drove from branch to branch, commenting: "Very impressed with all of the employees."

Dempsey's other interests outside acting include car racing, and the actor will be fronting the four-part Road to Le Mans documentary on the Velocity network this year, following his own participation in the gruelling 24 Heures du Mans car contest in France.
