Harriet Walter, who plays the Roy matriarch, Lady Caroline Collingwood, is a well-known British actor, having appeared in “Sense and Sensibility,” “Killing Eve,” “The Young Victoria,” and more. Walter had a long relationship with actor Peter Blythe, who died in 2004. Walter went on to marry another fellow actor, Guy Paul, at the age of 60 after meeting Paul in 2009 on the Broadway set of “Mary Stuart.” Paul had a “small part,” Walter told The Guardian, while she played the lead.
Apparently, tying the knot later in life has its benefits. “As you get older, you’re more comfortable with flux and changes,” Paul said. “If there is a day when you can’t bear each other, you know it is just going to be that day. When you are young, you don’t have the patience — you bugger off.” Walter added that she and Paul were able to see each other as individuals, which made all the difference. “In relationships, there is me and you — and this third character who is us,” she said. “And if you separate, divorce or are parted, you have to pick up the ‘you’ that you were when alone. What gets negative is when people fix each other in a role.” Sounds like Walter has a very healthy marriage — certainly a lot healthier than her character’s relationship with ex-husband Logan on “Succession.”
