Spooks star tells of ‘working’ marriage
Nicola Walker has compared the “ceremony of marriage” with going to work as an actress.
The Bafta-nominated star will soon be seen in new BBC One series The Split, which also features Stephen Mangan, Meera Syal, Stephen Tompkinson and Anthony Head.
Walker plays divorce lawyer Hannah Stern, whose personal life starts to become complicated as she deals with other people’s marriage problems.
She opened up about her own wedding, saying providing a sense of security for her son was a major reason why she and fellow actor Barnaby Kay decided to get married after almost 20 years together.
She told Radio Times: “I find the whole ceremony of marriage a bit like going to work. Putting on a lovely dress and make-up, learning lines, someone doing your hair.
“It’s a public performance.”
