Kate Fahy and Jonathan Pryce’s relationship
Kate Fahy and Jonathan Pryce met when they were both working at Liverpool’s Everyman Theatre nearly 50 years ago. But they were married to someone else at the time. Even though they claimed to be very happy in their marriage they left their partner. He said,
“Two weeks after I met Kate I left my wife and she left her husband. It really was just this extraordinary-meeting — a real coup de foudre.”
“I can’t imagine what life would be if I hadn’t met Kate at that time. We’re both actors and often that mitigates against a good relationship, but we have a great understanding of each other’s needs.”
They also starred in a play The Goat, Or Who Is Sylvia? together in the year 2004. Their previous marriage ended so they decided not to get married. But they eventually tied the knot in 2015. It was a private ceremony and they got married secretly. Since then they are living together happily.
They married for legal reasons as per Pryce and he said,
“We’d not married before because it was not deemed necessary. Everything we have had together is in our joint names. We had a ceremony with just family and enlarged the group for a very nice lunch afterwards. It’s been 48 years. The big 50 — now that will be a party.”
