Is Matthew Goode Married? Here’s What We Know About His Family and Career

Rising to prominence with his role in the 2002 TV film Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister, Matthew Goode is an English actor who has become a popular face on the screen. The Exeter-born actor is a part of a long list of people in the entertainment world today who were inspired to pursue such a career as a result of their parents having been active in the industry.

But unlike many others, Goode had only one parent, his mother Jennifer, who had an interest in the performing arts. She was not even outrightly active in the industry as she was only an amateur theatre director. To put food on the table, she maintained a job as a nurse while her husband Anthony worked as a geologist.

Together, Goode’s parents were able to send him to the University of Birmingham where he studied Drama before he transferred to Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London. What followed subsequently was a career that has seen him receive a Primetime Emmy Award nomination among other award nominations. Read on to find out more about his career, including details of his love life.

Is Matthew Goode Married?

One of the questions you find people always asking about the actor is in regards to his marital status. Unfortunately for anyone hoping to get a shot with him, Matthew Goode has been married for a number of years now.

In 2004, two years after he started his acting career, he began dating Sophie Dymoke. Since then, the couple has remained right by each other’s side as they started a family and exchanged marital vows quietly in 2014. They have further helped each other achieve greater things in their respective careers.

The couple kept their marriage under wraps as the public kept on anticipating an announcement on when they would get married. Matthew Goode later revealed in an interview that he and his longtime girlfriend had already walked down the aisle and become man and wife. No detail was further provided on where the marriage was held and those in attendance.

Dymoke is not a celebrity of any sort and was only thrown into the spotlight thanks to her relationship with her actor husband. But aside from being known as the wife of the English actor, Sophie is also a fashion designer. She has worked for notable brands including VINCE, where she was a Sales Director. She currently occupies the same position at MiH Jeans.

Together, the couple has three kids; two daughters and a son. Their first child, Matilda Eve, was born in March 2009, followed by Teddie Eleanor Rose who was born in September 2013. In August 2015, they had their youngest child, Ralph Goode.

Matthew Goode began acting in 2002 when he featured in Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister as Caspar. It was, however, not until 2004 that he starred in the romantic comedy Chasing Liberty where he played the role of Ben Calder that his efforts in the film industry were noticed.

From that role, he got his first award nomination – a Teen Choice Award for Male Breakout Star. This proved to be the spark he needed as he became the toast of movie producers, starring in other notable productions like Match Point (2005), My Family and Other Animals (2005), Imagine Me and You (2006), Brideshead Revisited (2008), and Leap Year (2010) among others.

Matthew Goode has since received several nominations for his performances in a filmography that includes over 40 films and TV shows. He was nominated by the Film Critics Circle of Australia Awards for Best Actor in a Leading Role in 2012 and the Australian Film Institute for the same category in 2013 for his performance in the film Burning Man. He won the Fangoria Chainsaw Awards for Best Supporting Actor in 2014 for his role in Stoker.

In 2017, Goode appeared in the Netflix historical drama, The Crown. His portrayal of the brother-in-law of Queen Elizabeth II and husband of Princess Margaret, Antony Armstrong-Jones, earned him nominations for Gold Derby Awards and Primetime Emmy Awards for Best Drama Guest Actor and Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series, respectively.
