Is Socratis Otto Related To Miranda Otto, Is He Married or in a Relationship

Socratis Otto is one actor who can hold his own both on stage, in films, and on the small screen. Born on May 5, 1970, and raised in Sydney, New South Wales, he was fascinated by what goes on both in theatre and on screen as a child and was also highly interested in writing. When he came of age and realized that a career in the showbiz industry was his forte, he pursued it head front.

After graduating from high school, Otto proceeded to college where he bagged a degree in creative writing and literature. He then followed it up with an acting training at NIDA (National Institute of Dramatic Art), graduating in 2000. The institution counts among its alumni top actors like Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe. Following his graduation, he started auditioning for roles on stage, as well as in films and on television.

Is Socratis Otto Related To Miranda Otto?

How tricky last names can be, especially when they are associated with someone famous, not to talk of two insanely popular personalities, from the same country as well. The odds couldn’t be more right, you must agree. Wondering if Socratis Otto is related to fellow Australian actress, Miranda Otto, he is not. However, they share some things in common such as a passion for acting and Australian nationality. Also, they have both lived in Sydney at one point or the other in their lives, and both graduated from NIDA.

Otto is of Greek descent and was born to Greek immigrants while Miranda is the daughter of popular Australian actors – Barry and Lindsay Otto. Information does not abound of the family background of Socratis but it is known that Miranda has a half-sister named Gracie Otto.

Married or in a Relationship?

Socratis Otto is not one given to being vocal about his personal life. He had fans asking questions about his sexual orientation and relationship status after he appeared in the Australian prison drama, Wentworth as a transgender – a role he nailed perfectly. That notwithstanding, he remained tight-lipped about his status but clarified in an interview that he is heterosexual.

Amid speculations that he might be married, though there is no evidence, the best we can surmise is that he could be in a relationship but wants to keep it as private as he can.
