Inside The Life Of Olivia Williams and Husband Rhashan Stone

Stone and Olivia have been blissfully married since 2003. After graduating from Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, the actor worked at the Royal Shakespeare Company, where he met his wife, Olivia Williams.

Williams, a fellow actor, previously admitted to the Evening Standard that although they swapped phone numbers while working at the RSC and had partners at the time, they didn't start dating until seven years later when a mutual acquaintance hooked them up.

At the time, Olivia and her actor boyfriend, Jonathan Cake from Cambridge, were still dating. Following her time at the RSC, Olivia went on to star alongside actors like Antonio Banderas and Kevin Costner, becoming a household name. She did, however, always have Rhashan's name in her Filofax. Jonathan Cake called off their wedding two weeks before Olivia's scheduled nuptials.

A common friend connected her with Rhashan after spending nearly seven years in what she called a hinterland of a wretched existence. She offered a picnic and a boat ride to divert attention from how awkward the date was.

Olivia Williams & Rashan Stone Are Parents To Two Beautiful Daughters

Roxana, their first child, was born in 2003. Within 18 months after the date, the couple wed and welcomed daughter Roxana into the world, according to the Evening Standard. Esme, born later, is now a teenager along with her sister.

Since being married and having kids, she has produced some of her best work, not least in an exciting performance of The Changeling in 2006.

Williams recorded an audiobook rendition of Persuasion, her favorite Jane Austen book, when Roxana was less than two weeks old. Soon after, she acted as Daniel Craig's mother in the movie Flashbacks of a Fool.

She said that when working on the upcoming BBC film Miss Austen Regrets during the summer, the demands of juggling work and family drove her insane.

There should be some guidelines when combining family with fame. In an interview, Olivia stated that she and her husband never discuss work with the daughters. When they are in bed after dinner, they only communicate. During the LaBute play's promotional period, Esme was astonished to see her mother's picture on a bus.

Olivia Williams Family 

North London was Williams' birthplace. Her parents are attorneys. Williams attended South Hampstead High School, a private girls' school in the Hampstead neighborhood of north London, before transferring to Newnham College in Cambridge, where Olivia earned a degree in English literature.

After spending two years studying acting at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, she worked for the Royal Shakespeare Company for three years.

Rashan grew up touring the country with his mother, jazz and soul singer Joanne Stone, and never met his father. R&J Stone, a partnership consisting of Rhashan's mother and his stepfather Russell Oliver, had a smash single, "We Make It," a cool original love song.

Joanne and Russell sang a duet on Top of the Pops while donning flares and having misty eyes. His aunt Madeline Bell, who rose to fame as the main singer for Blue Mink, was also active in the music industry. Stone is a skilled singer and multi-instrumentalist.

Joanne was a calm beauty, and Russell had flares and mutton-chop whiskers. Tragically, when Rhashan was 11 years old, she passed away from a brain tumor a few years later.

Olivia Williams As Camilla Parker In The Crown 

In the upcoming 5th season of Netflix's The Crown, Olivia is set to portray Camilla Parker Bowles.

Williams is wearing a green trench coat nearly identical to one Camilla wore in 1995 in pictures taken on the set of The Crown season 5. She has Camilla's recognizable bob in her hair.

Camilla and Andrew Parker Bowles declared their divorce at the beginning of 1995. The new series will focus on how Charles and Diana's relationship ended and paints the former Prince of Wales as "petty, frigid, and deceptive."

The fourth season, which started streaming in November of last year, chronicled the courtship of Charles and Diana. Elizabeth Debicki will replace Emma Corrin as Diana for the fifth and sixth series, which will cover Diana's passing in 1997, it was confirmed last year.

The Royal Family from the 1990s until 2003, including Diana's passing, was covered in the show's last two seasons, which is now in its final season.

Although Prince William & Kate Middleton met at St. Andrew's around that time, a figure portraying the future Duchess of Cambridge is not anticipated to appear on television in Season 6. The royal family will travel to the early 2000s during this season.
