He might be about to become one of the biggest heartthrobs in the world but Dan Stevens’ legions of fans will have to come to terms with the fact that he’s a very happily married man. Stevens married Susie Hariet in 2009. The couple had been in each other’s lives since 2006 when they were both performing in the English steel city of Sheffield. Their family expanded in 2009 when Hariet gave birth to a daughter, Willow, and it expanded further in 2012 when they had a son, Aubrey.
His career is about to go into overdrive after the official trailer Beauty and the Beast dropped on November 14. The movie opens in the U.S. on March 17.
Here’s what you need to know:
1. Stevens Says That Hariet ‘Is Totally Sympathetic to the Actor’s Life’
Stevens told the Daily Telegraph in 2011 that Hariet “is totally sympathetic to the actor’s life.” While the Observer reported in 2012 that Hariet was on set while her husband performed in the steamy romance, Summer in February. That piece refers to her as “quiet, soft-spoken.” It adds that Hariet “then pregnant, would stand off to one side with her daughter and watch her spouse perform steamily romantic scenes, one take after another.”
The star went into further detail about how reliant he is on Hariet in an interview with the Australian saying, “I’ve been so lucky in that my wife has been incredibly understanding and supportive. Had that not been the case, things might not have been quite so easy.”
After Stevens got buff for his role in the movie The Guest, he told the Guardian that, ” it was surprising. I have never looked like that in my life. My wife was very happy.”
