Three times Laurence Olivier Award winner, Alex Jennings is an English actor by profession.

Jennings's other well-known appearances are in films such as The Lady In The Van and The Queen.

Tied The Knot For Tax Purposes

It is surprising to know that Alex married his wife, Lesley Moors for tax purposes. However, it does not mean that the two are not in love, or they married just for tax implications. In an interview, Alex told that their relationship didn't need to get wedded as they are in love with each other head to toe.

He added,

"If it weren't for tax purposes, neither of us would have done it."

Neither their marriage was a grand ceremony nor an intimate ceremony with their friend and families. But, their marriage was in official papers with their children as witnesses. The duo was pronounced husband and wife back in 2012 at a local registry office.

45 Years Of Togetherness

It is over 45 years that Alex and Lesley first met. They met in 1975, and the long-time couple is still going strong without divorce rumors and controversies regarding their love life. The couple did productions together at the University of Warwick, and their first play was The Crucible.

By profession, Alex's wife, Lesley, is a landscape gardener. During an interview, Alex complimented his partner by saying healthy people and very warm, with strong emotional intuition. Back on 18 November 2018, the two were seen together at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards at Theatre Royal.
