Does Brooke D’Orsay Have A Husband? Here Is What We Know About Her Personal Life

Quite a good number of Hollywood stars have emerged from outside American borders, especially her neighboring country Canada where actress Brooke D’Orsay hails from. The TV and film actress has enjoyed a steady rise in her acting career, beginning from her home country Canada. TV lovers would recognize her from her role as Paige Collins in USA Network’s comedy-drama Royal Pains. Her role as Kate in the hit CBS show Two and a Half Men also introduced her to many who had previously not known about her. Here is a look at the actress’s personal life.

Brooke D’Orsay’s Family Background

The talented Canadian actress was born on the 17th of February 1982 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada to her William D’Orsay and Jackie D’Orsay. While her mom worked as a chemical lab assistant at a local university, her father William was a professor at the same establishment. The D’Orsays trace their origin to the Huguenots – French protestants who were popular in the 16th and 17th centuries for Calvinism (following the teachings of theologian John Calvin). Following persecution by the French Catholics, the Huguenots would become scattered all over Europe. Brooke D’Orsay’s family could perfectly be described as middle-class, she was raised alongside her brother John D’Orsay, who now works as a web developer. She attended her local high school and graduated at the age of 16.

What’s Brooke D’Orsay’s Relationship Status?

If there is any aspect of D’Orsay’s life that has continued to be shrouded in secrecy, it is her personal life. The actress has never been one to speak much about what goes on in her life outside acting and it has pretty much stayed the same over the years. She might have become a regular fixture in Hallmark romance movies but little to nothing is publicly known about the actress’s real-life romantic relationships.

The one time when D’Orsay was publicly linked to someone romantically was in 2011 when it was speculated that she was in a relationship with American actor and filmmaker Greg Coolidge. Coolidge has been active in Hollywood since 1995 and is known for comedy film Employee of the Month (2006) and comedy TV series, The Troop (2010). Following speculations about their romance, D’Orsay finally revealed in an interview in 2012 that they were in fact dating. Additionally, she revealed that they had both began making plans to get married, however, months passed and there was no hint of a wedding between the two.

By March 2013, Realtor reported that the actress had put up for rent, the 3 beds, 3 baths, and 2400 square feet Hollywood Hills mansion that she shared with Coolidge. Though neither of the couple said anything to the public about the status of their relationship, it was quite obvious that they both had broken up and gone their separate ways.

While Brooke D’Orsay has since remained very private about her romantic relationships, Coolidge has been somewhat open. Beginning from 2014, he began flaunting on social media, photos of his new girlfriend, a certain lady named Jill Scheid. No! She is not in the movie industry. She made her first public appearance beside Coolidge in 2016 at the premiere of his movie Ride Along 2, a sequel to the first movie released in 2014. From Coolidge’s Instagram feed, it appears that he is still in a relationship with Jill Scheid. D’Orsay, on the other hand, seems to be operating no social media accounts.

The Canadian Actress’ Acting Success and Recent Endeavors

Passionate about acting from a young age, Brooke D’Orsay, after schooling, became fully dedicated to the arts. Her first major gig came in the 2001 film, Why Can’t I Be a Movie Star? While landing gigs in Canada, she also began appearing in American productions, scoring more TV than film gigs. Her first major small-screen gig was to voice Caitlin Cooke in the Canadian animated sitcom, 6teen. D’Orsay’s next major role was in another sitcom Happy Hour. She would go on to score parts in many other TV shows, including Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory, and How I Met Your Mother. She had major roles in Gary Unmarried and the Lifetime series, Drop Dead Diva.

Brooke D’Orsay took her career to a higher level with her role as Paige Collins in Royal Pains. Her character was originally intended to be a small one but Brooke impressed so much with the role that it was upgraded to one of the main roles. Producer Michael Rauch would describe her in 2015, as a “great actress!”

Brooke D’Orsay in recent times has become a Hallmark Channel staple. She has since appeared in at least 5 Hallmark movies, including 2019’s Nostalgic Christmas. She continues to remain more active on the small screen than in films.
