Personal Life – Husband, Boyfriend
Since 2007, Deborah Ann Woll has been in a relationship with her long-time comedian boyfriend – Edward E.J. Scott. The two met when she was 23 and fresh out of the University. She was scrolling through a dating site and found his profile interesting. Edward thought she was pretty and nerdy, so he convinced her to go on a date with him.
The comedian has an uncommon generic disease called Choroideremia. This is a condition that slowly blinds its victims, mostly men. His maternal grandfather had the disease and once fell into a manhole.
Edward didn’t hide his condition from Deborah and his honesty was what caught her attention in the first place. His vision presently has been compared to looking through a paper-towel tube. He had been diagnosed at age 27 and was declared legally blind. When asked what he will miss if he goes completely blind, Edward said TV, comic books and movies.
Though many people assume the couple is married, they have not yet tied the knot – they are only in a long-term relationship. Deborah Ann Woll has said that she isn’t much of a wedding kind of girl and that they might not get married but she is committed for life and wants kids.
For the actress, her favorite part about Edward is his spirit. He once ran a 12 meter marathon race to raise research money for his disease. Deborah, on the other hand, uses her celebrity status to help raise awareness and funds to find a cure for Edward’s disease.
She has cited his fortitude as what helped her overcome her autoimmune disorder, Celiac disease – a disorder she was diagnosed with from childhood which causes her to be intolerant to gluten.
