Is Shaun Evans Married, Who Is His Wife? Girlfriend, Biography

English actor Shaun Evans broke into the limelight thanks to his role as crack detective Endeavour Morse in the ITV drama series Endeavour. Evans has earned high critical praise for his effortless portrayal of the role. Having begun his career professionally in 2002, Shaun had to pay his dues for a decade before getting his breakthrough in 2012. Here is a look at Shaun’s journey thus far, as well as other aspects of his life beyond acting.

Shaun Evans Biography

Shaun Francis Evandi was born on the 6th of March 1980, in Liverpool, England to Irish parents. Evans grew up in a middle-class family –  his dad worked as a taxi driver while his mom was a healthcare worker in a hospital. He was raised alongside his older brother who is barely a year older than he is.

Shawn Evans was able to discover early in his life that he wanted a career in acting. On a scholarship, he attended the Merseyside Catholic school, St. Edward’s College in 1991 and graduated in 1998. As Evans described to Express in 2016, his college was “very academic but quite musical”. He had originally wanted to pursue a career in history and politics but his love for acting led him to complete a course at the National Youth Theatre. Evans, at the age of 18 then relocated to London to attend the Guildhall School of Music & Drama.

In London, Shaun Evans scored a handful of parts in stage plays before the TV roles started coming. Some of his earliest TV shows were; Channel 4 comedy-drama, Teachers where he portrayed a gay French teacher, docudrama The Project, and miniseries The Virgin Queen.

His first feature film was the 2002 comedy-drama, The Boys from County Clare. Evans would come to score parts in other films like; Being Julia, The Situation, Cashback, Gone, Boy A, Telstar: The Joe Meek Story, and more.

Evans juggled between TV roles, film roles, and theater roles. In theater, he had a part in the award-winning play Blue/Orange by Joe Penhall. He played Kurt Cobain in the Roy Smiles play Kurt and Sid and also acted in the Peter Souter play Hello/Goodbye. Some of his other notable TV shows include; BBC’s Ashes to Ashes and Silk; The Take, and ITV’s The Last Weekend.

Evans’ career received a boost after he was cast as the young Inspector Morse in Endeavour. In addition to acting, Shawn Evans also has interests in directing. He has directed several episodes of the BBC medical drama, Casualty. When Evans isn’t acting or directing, he enjoys writing.

Shaun Evans isn’t one to bare his personal life online for the world to see. He is quite enigmatic in real life keeping no Facebook and Twitter accounts. His personal life is only but a mystery to his thousands of fans. Evans scenes in his hit show Endeavor have included a handful of romantic scenes and fans can’t help but wonder what his real-life romantic life could be like.

Well, we know this, that back in 2003, Evans began a romantic relationship with actress and singer Andrea Corr whom he met on the set of The Boys from County Clare, an Irish comedy-drama about a céilí band from Liverpool. It was Shaun’s debut film.

While Evans was sort of a newbie to the industry, Corr had a wealth of experience having begun her career in 1990. She is best known as the lead singer of the Celtic folk rock and pop rock group The Corrs. The band includes her three elder siblings Caroline, Sharon, and Jim. Corr has also pursued a solo career.

Unfortunately, their relationship lasted for just four years as they broke up in 2007. As typical of the ever privy Shaun, details of their breakup remains unknown to the media. Corr would go on to marry stockbroker Brett Desmond in 2009. The couple is now parents to two kids; daughter Jean born on 28 April 2012, and son Brett Jr. born on 4 January 2014.

Since Shaun’s break up from Corr, the media hasn’t been treated to any news regarding his romantic life. Thus, one can’t say for sure if the Endeavour star is in a relationship.
