Family Life Of The Actress – Husband And Children

Olivia Colman and her husband Ed Sinclair met for the first time when they were twenty. At the time, Olivia was studying teacher training while Sinclair was in his third year in a law school and was preparing to take part in the production of the drama Table Manners at Footlights. Though he was a law student then, he had a very strong interest in acting and writing plays because he was dissatisfied with his course of study. The actress fell in love with Ed at first sight and they later became friends. The pair took their relationship to another level in August 2001 when they officially tied the knot in the presence of their families and friends.

While Olivia was pregnant with her last child, she filmed the TV series The Night Manager until the eighth month of her pregnancy. She also returned to work nine months after she had her baby to film the second part of the British drama series Broadchurch.
