British actress Ruth Wilson has long been suspected of being romantically involved with her co-stars. Her latest stance on married life has baffled her fans.

Her most significant role till date in the silver screen came after portrayal of the character Alison Lockhart in the Showtime drama The Affair in 2014, which has won her plenty of admirers in the Hollywood and a handful of accolades including the Golden Gloves.

The show's fourth season began airing in June 2018. And making her appearance in the James Cordon's show, she revealed the fourth season had more 'twist and turns,' then customarily envisaged.  

As of now, she is seen as the brilliant psychopath and murderer Alice Morgan in the British crime drama series Luther, whose fifth series premiered on 1 January 2019 produced by BBC Drama Productions and broadcasted on BBC One. The show is available on Netflix across 35 countries over the globe.


On 21 June 2018, Jude along with actor, Damian Lewis made an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Cordon. 

The 36-year-old actress rose to prominence playing Jane Eyre in a 2006 TV adaptation of Charlotte Bronte’s 1847 novel of the same name. She’s also known for performance as Alice Morgan in the BBC TV crime drama Luther. Playing the titular role in Anna Christie, she won an Olivier Award for Best Actress.

At present, the Jane Eyre star is executive producing and playing Caroline Ayres in the film The Little Stranger, which is scheduled to be released in late August this year. She’s also set to feature in the BBC TV adaptation of Philip Pullman novel His Dark Materials as Mrs.Coulter.

The Luther actress attended Notre Dame School before enrolling in the University of Nottingham to study history. She later joined London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art in 2003.

Filmography: Legend In Making

Ruth made her debut on TV playing herself on BBC 2 technological game show Time Commanders. After landing a lead on Jane Eyre, she played Jewel Diamond in Suburban Shootout -- a British dark comedy TV series.

From 2007 to 2009, she was solely focused on her small-screen appearances despite having made her debut on big-screen in early 2007, playing the role of a woman in short film titled Get off my land.

Her performances on TV are forever immortalized in shows like Agatha Christie’s Marple(2007), Capturing Mary(2007), Freezing(2008), and The Prisoner(2009).

2012 marked her return to Films as she was cast to play the lead in Anna Karenina. Following year, she acted in The Lone Ranger and Saving Mr. Banks. Her filmography gloats an impressive list of Hollywood performances including Locke(2014), Siye Francaise(2015), and Dark River(2017).

Not limiting her talents to screens, the Surrey native has offered her services on stage too, starring on plays such as A Streetcar Named Desire(2009), Anna Christie(2011), and Constellations(2015).

Ruth was born on 13 January 1982 to a probation officer mother and an investment banker father. Despite being born in Ashford, Surrey, she grew up in Shepperton, Surrey. Her grandfather was a novelist and an ex MI6 officer. Her grandfather had married four wives, and her grandmother was the third wife. She grew up along with her 3 older brothers Toby, Sam (a BBC journalist) and Matthew in the United Kingdom.

The Surrey native has lived up to her grandfather’s notoriety, or at least, that’s what British tabloids seem to insinuate -- often romantically linking her with her co-stars.

She portrayed her own grandmother Alison Wilson in the British television series Mrs Wilson, executively produced and starred by herself. The show was based on the extraordinary marriage of a widow who uncovers a mysterious and secret life following the death of her husband. The show was aired on BBC One in the United Kingdom on 27 November 2018 and in the United States on PBS Masterpiece.

Her excellent acting as  Alison in the American television drama series The Affair won her the Best Actress Award at the 72nd Golden Globe Awards in 2015, and the show received the Golden Globe Award for the best television show.  

But her sudden exit from the show came out as a shock to her fans and media but she denied commenting anything about it saying that she is not allowed to comment anything. She remained in the headlines of August 2018 for her exit from season 3 of the show as her character was one of the strongest lead revolving around the storyline.

Crediting to her significant roles in famous BBC shows and movies, the English actress holds a net worth of $3 million.

Rumored Romances With Co-Stars; Ruth Denies Having Boyfriends

Ruth's dating life seems far less dramatic with her keeping the secrets just to herself. But when it comes to getting linked with every co-star she works, she is on top of it.

Well, she has worked with celebrities who are no new to the audiences including Constellations' Jake Gyllenhaal, Anna Christie's Jude Law, The Affairs' Joshua Jackson, and The Lone Ranger's Johnny Depp.

Out of all the movies she has done, these four celebs are rumored to be the ones she has dated. But the actress has successfully shut down all the speculations. Such a badass!

The rumors of Ruth dating actor, Jake Gyllenhaal started when they were picked up by many newspapers after the two were seen ‘arm in arm’ for what appeared to be dinner dates (In December 2014).

They had met at the stage production of Constellations in June earlier that year.

Speaking to The Guardian in March 2015, she squashed the rumor about Jake being her boyfriend saying:

And yes, every man in any show I do, I get aligned with having a relationship with. It’s just people bored and trying to create a story.

Little over a year later after she made this statement, in August 2016, she was once again linked with another co-star; this time her on-screen husband and The Affair cast-mate, Joshua Jackson. She and her then-rumored boyfriend were spotted at East Village by paparazzi looking cozy in a drinking session that had lasted for eight hours.

The Tony Award nominee hit back at the reports, accusing people of not knowing what goes on in her private life.

Well, the speculation just didn't end there. Over a couple of years, she and Jude Law were spotted together which gave rise to another rumor of dating. 

But she shortly stated it was not true.

In February 2017, appearing at The Graham Norton Show, she delved into how the media and tabloids have linked her with everyone she has worked with. 

And the rumors that surrounded her with Johnny Depp she explained (during the show) that she hadn’t spoken a word to the man while doing The Lone Ranger. Well, seems like she had nothing to say more than that.

Still Unmarried And No Possible Husband On Sight

Her most soul-bearing interview, however, had come in September 2016 in an interview with Vanity Fair.

She told Valentina Valentini, a Vanity Fair reporter that she enjoyed alone time and called it ‘a nice place to be.’ The life she described was a stark contrast to the reports by tabloids, which accused her of enjoying the company of rumored boyfriends.

In the same interview, the University of Nottingham alum assured her fans of finding fulfillment in an unconventional way of living. For her, a conventional method of living would be entrenched in married life with a husband and kids by the age of 34, which she does not want.

One takeaway from her interview: your married life should be able to take a back seat to your career choice.
