Adam Driver won us over with his portrayal of a grieving divorcée named Charlie in Netflix’s Marriage Story. And although he’s widely recognized for his work on Girls and for playing Kylo Ren in the Star Wars franchise, we aren’t too familiar with the 36-year-old actor’s personal life—in particular, his other half, Joanne Tucker.
So, who is Adam Driver’s wife? Keep reading for everything we know about Joanne Tucker.
1. Who is Adam Driver's wife, Joanne Tucker?
She’s an actress, who was born and raised in New York. Tucker has starred in films like The Report, Give or Take, Listen Up Philip and Gayby. She also had guest cameos on a variety of TV shows, including HBO’s Girls (she played Driver’s wife in the play featured in season five, episode seven) and Showtime’s Billions.
Together, she and Driver co-founded the Arts in the Armed Forces (AITAF) charity, which helps active and retired military veterans around the world have access to theater.
2. How did Adam & Joanne meet?
The couple met while they were studying at the Juilliard School for Drama, though acting wasn’t Adam’s original plan. In fact, the actor served in the Marine Corp for two years before he accidentally broke his collar bone, ultimately ending his tenure. Although he was crushed, the injury led him to pursue acting, meet Joanne and the rest is history.
3. When did they start dating?
Almost immediately after they met. According to Driver, he bonded with Tucker over her New Yorker personality. “She taught me what Gouda cheese is,” he told Broadway.com. “And that you shouldn’t talk with your mouth full and spit on the sidewalk.” Sounds like a match made in heaven.
4. Are they married?
Driver and Tucker tied the knot in 2013 in a super-secret destination wedding. Although we don’t know many details about the nuptials, the Star Wars actor previously revealed that it involved lots and lots of charcuterie. Oh, my Gouda!
5. Do they have any children?
Adam and Joanne have an almost 3-year-old son, whose name has yet to be publicly revealed. We’re not surprised by the couple’s secrecy, since they hid the child’s existence for the first two years of his life. It wasn’t until the actor sat down for an interview with W Magazine and accidentally hinted he’s a father that we first learned about the news.
