Rupert Evans Wife, Girlfriend
In the film industry, it’s no big deal to fall in love with your co-stars. Something similar happened in Rupert’s life too. When Rupert Evans starred as Romeo in the play Romeo and Juliet (2006) at the Royal Shakespeare Company, he fell in love with the Juliet of that drama, actress Morven Christie.
Rupert and his girlfriend, Morven fell in love during that time and had kept it a secret from the play’s director. The director only knew about their love once the play was performed. By 2009, the couple had been in love for three years.
In case you don’t know much about Morven, she is a Scottish actress (born on September 1, 1981). Morven is best known for her performances as DC Lisa Armstrong in The Bay, as Alison Hughes in The A Word, as Amanda Hopkins in Grantchester, and as Kirsten Lindstrom in Ordeal by Innocence.
Other than Romeo and Juliet, Rupert and Morven have both been part of the sitcom Monday Monday; Rupert had played Morven’s ex-boyfriend.
But, after 2009, Rupert and Morven were never seen together.
In 2014, though Rupert mentioned the word “girlfriend” in an interview with Guardian, he did not disclose the identity of the girl. When asked about his all-time favorite computer game, Rupert told, ” I do have a chess app… I get obsessed with that too… My girlfriend goes mental if she hears the noise of me moving a piece.”
