Later on, in an interview, Louis said,

“She was having trouble finding work… legally. So we got married to make it easier for her. We never really considered ourselves married in the full sense- there were no wedding photos or anything like that it was really a marriage of convenience.”

Well, whatever was the reason the fact is they are no longer together and both of them have moved on in their respective lives.

Award-winning filmmaker Louis Theroux

Louis started his career as a journalist but was always interested in writing. He was surely influenced by his father Paul Theroux and brother Marcel Theroux who are talented novel writers.

Eventually, he began working on filmmaking and made the series titled ‘Louis Theroux’s Weird Weekends’. While describing the purpose of the series he said:

“Setting out to discover the genuinely odd in the most ordinary setting. To me it’s almost a privilege to be welcomed into these communities and to shine a light on them and, maybe, through my enthusiasm, to get people to reveal more of themselves than they have intended.”

He further added, “The show is laughing at me, adrift in their world, as much as at them. I don’t have to play up that stuff. I’m not a matinee idol disguised as a nerd.”

Similarly, some of his best works are ‘When Louis Met..’ and BBC Two Specials. One of the episodes of ‘When Louis Met’ was voted one of the top documentaries of all time when entertainer Jimmy Savile was a guest.

Likewise, Louis has received a ‘Royal Television Society Television Award’ and also two ‘British Academy Television Awards’ for his outstanding work.
