Actress Emily Watson Married With Jack Waters; Share Two Children
The famous English actress, known for the role in the blockbuster movie Breaking the Waves, Emily Anita Watson aka Emily Watson is the winner of several awards.
Looking at her love life, she is currently married to Jack Waters. The couple first met at the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon-Avon and tied the knot in 1995. The pair is parenting two children, a daughter Juliet Waters who was born in 2005 and a son Dylan Waters who was born in 2009.
She has done nudity in her past but having children does change things for a lady. She said in an interview,
‘I mean I’ve been described in the Press before as a character actor who gets laid, which I think is a great description, but as the years go by you get laid less and less on screen and then you sort of stop ... And then suddenly here I am. It was pretty cool although I did have to kind of swallow a few times when I read the script.’
A pretty sad and tragic thing happened in her life when her mother was sick. She immediately returned to London in order to take care of her mother but sadly her mother passed away right after she arrived in the capital city.
But thanks to the support and love of her husband she was able to move on from the death of her mother. The couple currently resides in Greenwich, London with their children and we haven't heard of any sort of controversies faced by the couple so far.
She's Not Going For Nude Scenes Anymore:
The Apple Tree Yard star Emily Watson is a woman with children. So when she was asked to perform some nudes on the show, she denied. There is a certain age to do all of it and she did it at that time but running it all again on your 50's is a little difficult task.
When she was asked to do and read the scripts, she said,
“Wow. This is a lot. Do I really want to do this?”
Seems like the actress does not want to retain the past screening material she did and just wants to act normally without any nudes included.
