ITV’s hit drama Vera is back on our screens tonight and TV fans can’t wait to see more of Lorraine Ashbourne back in action.

The 60-year-old actress has had quite a career and her CV takes in The Bill, Casualty, Silent Witness and Unforgotten.

But her personal life is arguably even more interesting. Did you know, for instance, that her husband is also a famous actor?

Well, he is – and his name is Andy Serkis, best known for his motion-capture performances as Gollum in The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings trilogies.

He also played King Kong in the film… King Kong, Caesar in the Planet of the Apes reboot, and Supreme Leader Snoke in the recent Star Wars films.

Serkis is in fact one of the highest-grossing actors of all time thanks to his motion-cap performances and has picked up a number of BAFTA nominations along the way.

He has made the jump to directing in recent years, taking the lead on Venom: Let There Be Carnage, from the Spider-Man series of films.

Lorraine shares three children with Serkis, the two eldest being Ruby and Louis Serkis – and they are stars in their own right.
