Leila Farzad not only has a successful career but also a successful married life. Yes, her supportive husband of over 9 years with whom she also shares a daughter is her everything.
Let’s discuss more as this article proceeds.
Leila Farzad Husband: Is The Actress Married?
Yes, Leila Farzad is married to her husband James. The pair tied the knot back in October 2013, and it was indeed a day to remember for the lovebirds — who were already friends for over 6 years then.
For the wedding, Leila wore a white dress while her husband rocked a grey suit. Amidst their family and friends, the two then exchanged vows and walked through the lawn making their way to an amazing honeymoon trip.
Today, the two have been married for over 9 years, and still, the fire in their eyes remains the same. Infact, Leila has fallen even more in love with James. She even went as far as to call him a “legend” who made their daughter banana oat pancakes.
On Sundays, the two often go out to a Persian restaurant where they gather with friends and family and eat heaps of buttery rice with bread, stew, and chicken. “We then waddle out with takeaway boxes as we’ve over-ordered,” Leila added.
So far, the most memorable Sunday for the actress was the Baftas in 2021. At the time, she was nominated for I Hate Suzie and they did it via video link. “They sent round hair and makeup people, who put glitter on my daughter’s cheeks as well. I sat on the sofa, dressed up to the nines with crazy jewelry on. Mum was there, too. She wasn’t thrilled about me becoming an actor rather than a lawyer, but that night, she was OK with it,” she recalled.
Leila Farzad On Better
Leila Farzad plays DI Lou Slack on Better. According to BBC, her character and Col McHugh (Andrew Buchan) “explores the complex and powerful bonds of loyalty and family” and “the power of human conscience.”
Now, talking in detail, Lou first meets Col when she was struggling as a young police officer, and Col was a newcomer to the Leeds underworld. They then deal make a deal (not explained to avoid spoilers) that shapes their lives — allowing Lou to rise in her career and Col to become rich and powerful.
Sadly, years later, Lou’s family is “brought to the brink of a tragedy” and she must finally correct what she has done, which ultimately includes trying to bring down Col.
So, Lou makes her first move against Col and explains to him that her colleagues got an “anonymous tip” about an associate named Noel, a person she was unable to “kill” completely. “Best I could do was to get ahead of it and make sure that Noel didn’t get himself shot, then I reminded him that you would be there for him,” she says.
Unimpressed, Col then replies, “You come to me wanting to take him, and I say no, and then the very same night I find out that you’ve nicked him at a safe house that only you and five other people know about?”
BBC One Better was set to hit the small screen in 2023. Excited for the premiere, Leila said, “[Better is] a brilliant fresh take on the morality tale. I am excited to have the opportunity to play Lou Slack, the vehicle through which we explore the multivalent layers of good and bad.”
Also, joining the actress for its inaugural season are Samuel Edward-Cook, Zak Ford-Williams, Ceallach Spellman, Carolin Stoltz, Anton Lesser, and Olivia Nakintu.
