Who is Stephen Graham’s wife? ‘Code 404’ star is married to a fellow actor


After his appearances in Time, Line of Duty, the Irishman, and many more, Stephen Graham has become one of Britain’s most notable acting talents. Now appearing in the third series of Sky Comedies Code 404, and with an upcoming performance as Mr. Wormwood in Netflix’s adaptation of Matilda: The Musical, it’s an ideal time to learn more about who Graham is away from the cameras.

Coincidentally, Graham is married to fellow actor Hannah Walters, who you may remember starring alongside Graham in Time as his wife on screen and in the 2021 film Boiling point. The pair met while attending Rose Bruford College of Speech and Drama in London. Despite quickly becoming “bezzies,” as Graham told Leicestershire Live in 2018, it took a while for their relationship to blossom into more than friendship. It wasn’t until Graham suffered a breakdown in his late teens that led him to commit suicide that their relationship changed. “This is kind of where Hannah came into my life the right way,” he told Lauren Laverne on an episode of TBEN 4’s Desert Island Discs. “She knew what was happening. She was always in close contact with my mother.”

Their bond instantly grew stronger and it quickly became romantic. Graham took the ultimate step when Walters was about to move to Spain permanently. “We were waiting at New Cross train station and I said to her, ‘Please don’t go to Spain. I love you,” he explained. “She said, ‘I’ve been waiting for you to say that for five years.’ The next day we moved in together.”

The couple later married in 2008 and had two children together, Grace and Alfie. Shedding light on the couple’s relationship, the Code 404 star previously revealed to the Mirror how Walters regularly jumps in to read scripts for him because of his dyslexia. “My buffer system is my wife. She reads them first. If they’re good, I’ll take a look. She turned down some great ones, but that’s another story,” he explained.

2021 was an important year for the couple in terms of acting as they brought their chemistry to the forefront of the TBEN series Time. As the show’s executive producer, Graham brought up Walter’s name while the show was being released – much to Walters’ dismay. “I was pretty upset when he suggested it. I want to get parts on my own merit and not, let’s face it, because of Stephen,” she told Inews. Instead, she let her husband “go through the proper channels.” and submitted an audition tape. Walters got the part on her own, but often thinks how funny it would have been if they had been told they weren’t playing as a fictional couple. have no chemistry?” she exclaimed.
