Will Sharpe and Sophia Di Martino have been dating for 14 years


Sophia Di Martino and Will Sharpe are the definition of a power couple. Di Martino is currently taking over the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Sylvie in Disney+'s "Loki," but she's also known for her roles in British series like "The Royal Today," "Casualty," and "Flowers." The latter two also featured Sharpe, whom you may recognize from other shows like "Giri/Haji" and "The White Lotus." Sharpe is also an award-winning writer and director.

Over the years, Di Martino and Sharpe have collaborated on several projects together. Still, the pair tend to keep their relationship out of the spotlight. They rarely talk about each other in interviews and have only recently started making public appearances together. Since they keep details about their relationship under wraps, it's unclear if they're engaged or married, but we do know they have been together since 2009 and have two children together.

If you're curious to know how the pair got together and when they began expanding their family, scroll ahead for more.

Considering Di Martino and Sharpe have been in the industry for years, it's not surprising they met in 2009 on the set of British medical drama "Casualty." Di Martino initially had a small guest role as Shauna Milsom, but then she landed the recurring role of Polly Emmerson. Meanwhile, Sharpe played Yuki Reid.

In a December 2022 interview with the Evening Standard, Sharpe confirmed that he and Di Martino began dating shortly after connecting through the show. "I was a junior doctor and she was playing a paramedic in Bristol," he said, adding that the couple have come a long way since then. "We've been together for 13 years and have two children: three and one."

Following the movie's release, Sharpe and Kingsley earned a BAFTA Film Award nomination for outstanding debut by a British writer, director, or producer. In addition to writing and directing "Black Pond," Sharpe also played the role of Tim. Meanwhile, Di Martino portrayed Rachel.

Di Martino and Sharpe welcomed their first child together sometime in October 2019. Since the couple like their privacy, they've yet to share details about their child. We only have an idea of their child's birthday thanks to a throwback Instagram post Di Martino shared in June 2021. "#tbt Feb 2020 in the @marvelstudios stunt gym. The very beginning of my @officialloki journey and 4 months postpartum!" she captioned a photo of her during a workout session.

That June, Di Martino also told The Hollywood Reporter that she was pregnant during the audition process for "Loki." Since she couldn't travel at the time, Di Martino couldn't read for her part in person, so she could only send an audition tape. "It was a very quick process," she said. "I think [director Kate Herron] was pretty keen on me doing it after I read for the part. And from what she told me, she said that everyone agreed that I'd be the best person for the job . . . I got very lucky and I'm so grateful."
