Is Pursuit of Love star Emily Beecham now married?

Is Pursuit of Love star Emily Beecham now married? Mother of German actor Max Befort hints her son wed star of the BBC romantic comedy – and calls her ‘my daughter-in-law’

A star of The Pursuit Of Love is at the centre of a romantic mystery – and this time it doesn’t involve Lily James or Dominic West.

The mother of the German actor linked to Emily Beecham – who plays Fanny Logan in the BBC adaptation of Nancy Mitford’s novel – has hinted that the couple may have married.

Asked about Max Befort’s relationship with Ms Beecham, Barbel Befort told The Mail on Sunday: ‘This is always top-secret. They are both very busy at the moment. 

‘And because my daughter- in-law is a superstar, I won’t talk about her. I want her to remain my daughter-in-law!’

While it is unclear if Ms Befort meant ‘daughter- in-law’ in a legal sense, her 31-year-old son and the actress do live together in an East London flat.

They have been coy about their romance, even during a round of promotional interviews for Sulphur And White, an independent film released just before the pandemic in which they both starred.

In the new three-part BBC drama, which begins tonight, Ms Beecham, 36, plays the best friend and cousin of Linda Radlett, an aristocratic heroine played by Ms James, who is on a quest to find romance in the inter-war years.

Ms Beecham was born in the Manchester suburb of Wythenshawe and moved to Hertfordshire aged 13, but has described herself as still ‘a Northern girl at heart’.

She auditioned for a one-year course at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art when she was 18, but so impressed tutors that she was invited to do the full three-year degree. 

While there, she became friends with Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

Ms Beecham once said her passion for acting was fuelled when, aged 13, her mother took her to see David Hare’s West End play The Blue Room in which Nicole Kidman appeared naked. ‘It was very exposing and I liked that,’ she said.
