Before he was Succession‘s submissive Tom Wambsgans, Matthew Macfadyen, 49, was Mr. Darcy in 2005’s Pride & Prejudice. The screen heartthrob has been married to his real-life Elizabeth Bennett, British actress Keeley Hawes, 47, since 2004, and they’ve welcomed two children to complete their family.

He’s been nominated for a 2024 Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Television Role, and he’ll find out on Sunday, January 7, if he’s taking home the coveted trophy.

Ahead of the big ceremony, find out everything to know about Matthew’s leading lady and their home life.

Keeley Hawes is an Actress

Keeley Hawes is a successful actress in her own right. Early in her career, she appeared in several literary adaptations for the BBC, but has also appeared in films including 1998’s The Avengers and 2007’s Death at a Funeral, among others. She’s had a prolific career in television, notably starring opposite Matthew in Spooks and more recently, in British comedy-drama Stonehouse. Her experience includes live theater, as well.

In a January 2023 interview, Matthew opened up about what it was like to work with his wife on Stonehouse. “It was great,” he told PARADE at the time. “I mean, it was really lovely. It was really fun. We were probably a little bit nervous about the thought of doing it together, only because we haven’t for a while. But it was a really lovely professional experience for both of us, and also to spend time together.”
