Who is Alice Evans, Ioan Gruffudd’s wife? Wiki Bio
Alice Jane Evans was born in Bristol, England, on 2 August 1971, so her zodiac sign is Leo and she holds British nationality. She is an actress, best known for her roles in films “Dangerous Parking” and “Liars All”, and as the wife of Ioan Gruffudd, a famous Welsh actor.
Childhood and education
Alice was raised in Bristol with her two brothers, Phillip and Anthony, by their mother Janet Evans who was a teacher, and their father David Evans who was a mathematician teaching applied mathematics at Bristol University – their grandfather was a coal miner.
She became interested in acting at the age of seven, when she started watching TV with Phillip, and subsequently appeared in several plays while attending high school, and was advised by her teachers to pursue a career in acting. Upon matriculation, she continued her education at University College, London where she continued acting and was also physically active playing soccer; she graduated with an undergraduate degree in French and Italian in 1993.
Alice then enrolled at Cours Florent, a private French acting school in Paris, and then launched her acting career.
Roles in movies
Alice made her debut film appearance in the French movie “Une Pour Toutes” in 1999 in which she portrayed Macha Desachy, and in 2000 starred in the comedy movie “102 Dalmatians”. Some of her following roles were in “Ma Femme S’appelle Maurice” in 2001, “The Abduction Club” in 2002, and “Blackball” in 2003, before she starred in “Fascination” as Kelly Vance in 2004.
Alice’s latest roles in movies have been in “Hollywood Dreams” in 2006, “Dangerous Parking” in 2007, and “Liars All” in 2013.

She and Ioan remained good friends as she had become engaged to Olivier in the same year, but they broke up several months later, and Alice began seeing Ioan. On 12 February 2007 while being the guest on “Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson”, Ioan explained how Alice had told him that they were either going to marry, or she would leave him, as they had been together for nearly seven years.
So, their wedding was held in Mexico on 14 September 2007 – Alice gave birth to their first daughter in 2009, while their second daughter followed in 2013. The family of four is living together in Los Angeles, California.

Who is Ioan Gruffudd? Wiki Bio
Ioan Gruffudd was born in Llwydcoed, Aberdare, Wales on 6 October 1973 – his zodiac sign is Libra and he holds British nationality. He is an actor who gained recognition after portraying Harold Lowe in the romantic film “Titanic” in 1997. Ioan was partly raised in Llwydcoed with a younger brother and a younger sister by their father Peter and mother Gillian who are both retired teachers. The family moved to Cardiff when he was six, where he studied at Ysgol Gynradd Gymraeg Aberdar and two other Welsh schools. He was interested in playing the oboe during his teen years, and was a member of the South Glamorgan Youth Orchestra for over five years, but eventually chose acting over music.
He launched his acting career when he was 13, when he appeared in the film “Austin”, before making his debut TV series appearance in “Pobol y Cwm” in 1987. He joined the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art after turning 18, but was given only insignificant roles which led to him wanting to leave many times – he decided to stay and eventually played the lead role in the play “Hedda Gabler” in 1995. After being praised for his performance, he was invited to star in the TV series “Poldark”.
Ioan was then invited to appear in the film “Titanic”, which made him somewhat famous and was then cast as the lead character in the historical war series of films “Hornblower”.
He starred alongside Alice in “102 Dalmatians” in 2002, and then appeared in critically acclaimed movies such as “Black Hawk Down” in 2001 and “King Arthur” in 2004. More lead roles followed in “Amazing Grace” in 2007, “Fantastic Four” in 2005, and “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer” in 2007. He has been portraying the lead character Dr Andrew Earlham in the medical miniseries “Liar” since September 2017, while he has also been portraying Dr. Daniel Harrow in “Harrow” since 2018.
Ioan can be seen in two video games – “Fantastic Four” in 2005 as Reed Richards or Mister Fantastic, and in “Diablo III” in 2012 as The Necromancer.
