Olivia Colman has been happily married since 2001. Here's everything you need to know about her husband, Ed Sinclair.
Olivia Colman, 48, is blessed both in her career and in her personal life. The British actress, who is nominated for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama at the 2023 Golden Globes for Empire of Light, has been happily married to her husband Ed Sinclair since 2001. Olivia is typically private about her personal life, but she did open up about her relationship with Ed in a September 2021 interview with The Telegraph.
“It sounds really odd, but I did fall in love with him at first sight,” Olivia shared. “When he walked into the room, I just went, ‘That’s him!’ Mind you, I suppose if he hadn’t wanted me, then I might have gone, ‘That’s him!’ at someone else a week later,” she added.
Olivia and Ed are the proud parents of three children, and their love for one another has never wavered over the years. Here’s everything you need to know about Olivia’s husband and their marriage.
Ed is an actor and writer who played Michael in the British TV show Look Around You, according to Yahoo. Ed’s IMDb page shows that he was the executive producer and creator of the miniseries Landscapers, which starred Olivia. He’s also a producer on the upcoming film Wicked Little Letters and the upcoming TV series Screenshot. Michael originally studied law at Cambridge University, which is where he met Olivia, before he decided to pursue a career in writing and producing.
Ed and Olivia met at Cambridge University when they were both rehearsing for a production of Table Manners. “We met when we had nothing and we loved each other then. So we were all right,” The Crown star told The Telegraph. “We were 20, and he was also an actor. If you meet at that age, then you’re fine. For me, it was thunderbolts straight away,” Olivia said.
The couple married in 2001, but there’s no details out there about their wedding day. They’ve created a great partnership both at home and at work when they collaborate on projects, including the 2021 show Landscapers. “We worked out very early on that it’s much better if he’s a writer, I’m an actor and we don’t talk about it,” Olivia told Yahoo! in December 2021. “It’s much easier not to talk about the work,” she added.

Olivia and Ed have three children. Their son Finn was born in 2005. Finn is now 18 years old. Their second son, Hall, was born in 2007. Hall is now 16 years old. Olivia and Ed’s only daughter was born in 2015, but they still haven’t revealed her name to the public.
Olivia talked about being pregnant with her daughter while working on the British series The Night Manager, in a past interview with Radio Times. “I just can’t retain my lines like I normally would,” she said. “I’ve got a bit of nappy brain going on. There are an awful lot of script changes that happen. It can change the day before, on the day. It fills me with fear: ‘Oh Christ, I’ve barely got the script in my head and now I’ve got to change it.’ So it is a little bit hanging by my fingernails.”
Even though we don’t know much about Olivia and Ed’s life with their kids, we can imagine they’re such supportive and wonderful parents.
