Congratulations are in order for an Academy Award-winning couple! Chris Overton and Rachel Shenton announced that they were married in secret “not that long ago.”
According to Sky News, Chris and Rachel met in 2010 on the set of Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks. At the time, Overton was acting as Liam McAllister and Shenton was acting as Mitzee Minniver.
The pair hit it off at the time. Now, eight years later, they are married! In March of 2018, the couple won an Academy Award for their short film, “The Silent Child.” The film was directed by Chris Overton. Rachel Shenton starred in the film and wrote the script.
They revealed that shortly following their Oscar win, they got married in a secret ceremony!
30-year-old Chris said, “We got married not that long ago in amongst all the madness. It was a pretty private event, we wanted to keep it private, but I am so happy though.”
He continued, “It has been a very good year. I don’t know what we are going to do next year.”
Rachel then talked about all of the success that the couple has found this year with their short film and with tying the knot. She said that the Oscar win has not changed too much about their daily lives.
She said, “I mean Chris and I are a bit boring and normal so I don’t think it has changed that much day to day really.”
She continued, “But it has certainly changed us creatively in terms of what we want to do and the meetings we’ve found ourselves in and doors that have been opened. Both sides of the pond we’ve had great meetings and we are just very excited for the next projects and things.”
Congrats to the happy couple on their marriage and on their recent success! Share your congrats here. In other recent news to be praying about, ISIS just captured 700 people and plans to execute 10 per day.
