Olivia made her name in The Mitchell and Webb Situation, Twenty Twelve, The Office, Black Books, Flowers, Green Wing, Peep Show and Rev.

But, more recently, she’s proved she can be searingly excellent in emotional dramas, too.

She also played the evil stepmother in Fleabag, and DS Ellie Miller in Broadchurch.

Olivia has also appeared in The Night Manager and Les Misérables, among many other TV roles.

Her film roles include Queen Anne in The Favourite – for which she won an Oscar – PC Doris Thatcher in Hot Fuzz, Anne in The Father, and Hildegarde Schmidt in Murder on the Orient Express.

She can currently be seen in the drama The Lost Daughter, a film about a woman whose beach vacation takes a dark turn when she begins to confront the troubles of her past.

Who is Olivia Colman’s husband?

Actress Olivia Colman is married to her husband, Ed Sinclair.

The happy couple tied the knot all the way back in 2001.

“My husband and I were very lucky,” she 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 Colman and husband Ed Sinclair – do they have kids?

Olivia and Ed have three children.

They have two sons, called Finn and Hall.

They also have a daughter, whose name they haven’t revealed.

Olivia was pregnant with her youngest while filming the popular series The Night Manager in 2015.

The couple has always insisted on keeping their children’s lives out of the spotlight.

“As long as I have Ed and the boys, everything is alright,” she told The Guardian when asked why she shuns Hollywood parties.

Just two days before the Oscars, Olivia took her family to Disneyland instead of doing press interviews.

The family live in South London together.
