There were instances when Fabien Frankel was photographed with Jenna Coleman, but two of them have never confirmed anything. Besides, they were co-actors in the Netflix drama, The Serpent.

They were spotted attending Wimbledon Tennis Championships on July 9, 2021, in London, England. Jenna had broken up with Tom Hughes at that time and was single. 

But, in February 2022, she was seen strolling around hand-hand in Islington with Jamie Childs, the director of The Sandman. They were rumored to be dating since late December 2021, as per Daily Mail. 

Criston Cole and Rhaenyra Targaryen Love Story 

Fabien may not be in love, but his character in House of Dragons, Criston Cole, is said to have a complex love life. Some theories said Daemon had provided explicit lessons to Princess Rhaenyra to seduce the noble knight, Cole. But, when she approached him, he rejected her in shock. 

However, in the series, the Princess loses her virginity to her guard, Cole, after Daemon ditches her. As a result, several speculations and different versions of the story regarding Rhaenyra and Cole's relationship exist.

In the original Fire and Ice, another version of the story goes around, which says that Cole once went to Rhaenyra's chambers to confess his love for her. Moreover, he asked her to run away with him to one of the free cities and continue their lives while he pledged his sword to some merchant prince.

But the Princess rejects it saying that if he could forget his Kingsguard vows, he could forget the wedding vows too.

According to Stylecaster, Fabien Frankel has an estimated $1 million net worth. He has accumulated wealth through his projects in the film industry. 

He started on stage in the 2017 production of The Knowledge at Charing Cross Theatre. But, it took him two years to make his onscreen debut. He featured in the romantic comedy film Last Christmas in 2019. The same year, he was cast as the lead Theo Sipowicz in a pilot in NYPD Blue.

In 2021, he portrayed the role of Dominique Renelleau in the BBC One and Netflix crime drama, The Serpent. In 2022, he features as Dornish knight Ser Criston Cole in the HBO fantasy series House of the Dragon.

How Rich Was Fabien Frankel Character Criston Cole?

Ser Criston Cole was the common-born child of the Steward of Lord Dondarrion of Blackhaven. He was a House Cole knight who worked his way up to become Viserys I Targaryen's Lord Commander of the Kingsguard.

He had a good relationship with Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen. The Princess also chose him to fill a vacancy in the Kingsguard as he was the only candidate with actual field fighting experience. However, their relationship turns hostile later on.

Criston was the one who persuaded Viserys's son, Prince Aegon the Elder, to declare himself the ruler of the Seven Kingdoms. As a result, Aegon II and his older half-sister, Rhaenyra, whom Viserys had long been training to be his successor, engaged in a civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons.

As a result, the knight earned the name Criston the Kingmaker. Although he had gained a respectable title, he had no claim to any territory or titles. The only things to his name were his honor and his extraordinary swordsmanship. 

Who Are Fabien Frankel Parents?

Fabien was born to father Mark Frankle and mother Caroline Besson. His parents got married in 1991.

Fabien's mother was a French advertising account executive. Mark and Caroline gave birth to two sons- Fabien and Max. But, the family was struck with tragedy before the second child, Max, was born. They lost Mark, who suffered a traffic collision in 1996 and passed away. 

As a result, Fabien, who was two years old when he lost his father, was raised by his mother, Caroline. His mom was pregnant with his younger brother when the accident happened. 

His Father Was An Actor

Fabien is the son of the late actor Mark Frankel. Despite having a family member coming from a background in the entertainment industry, he did not get the opportunity to learn about it from a young age. 

He lost his father when he was two years old. Mark passed away in a traffic collision in 1996. Although he was not there with his son to guide him, his wife, Fabien's mother, Caroline Besson, introduced him to film by taking him and his younger brother to the cinema weekly when they were kids.

Mark was popularly known for his leading roles in the British film Leon the Pig Farmer and the American TV series Kindred: The Embraced. Fans think his son will continue his legacy and even reach greater heights in his career. 

As mentioned in Vogue, he once shared that people who knew his father had found him and approached him as he started working in the industry. He added that he has got to learn more things about his dad through them, which has been a lovely experience.
