Meet Alpana Choudhury, FBI: International Actor Michael Torpey’s Wife
Actor Michael Torpey got married to a beautiful woman named Alpana Choudhury on 24 January 2012, this is according to a license issued in Manhattan, New York City.
Fast forward to today, they not only seemed to have a happy marriage but are also joined by their young daughter Eesha.
This family of three occasionally shows up on social media. Other times, they seemingly try to keep it low-key. Yet, now and then, we also see Michael talk, even gush about his partner. For instance, this one time, he wrote on Facebook about how he is consistently impressed by his partner’s passion and drive to bring mental health services to communities that thought they were not for them. He spoke highly of her and the growth of the company that she runs.
A couple of years back when Michael talked about getting into the project Paid Off, for which he is not only the host but also the creative force behind, he said it came out of his personal experience. He elaborated that he decided to do this project with the idea of exposing the horrible nature of student loan debts after a very personal experience with loan debt he shared with Alpana.
So, apparently, when Michael and Alpana married the latter had around $40,000 in debt. They were at the time looking to combine their finances, and Michael had just booked his first “nice” acting gig. He had done a series of commercials for Hanes, this was the first time he ever had any money in his bank account. So, he decided to cut one cheque and be done with it. So, when Michael wrote that cheque, he recalled, how Alpana just started crying. As for him, he said he felt ashamed for not really giving her credit for how hard she had been working to make those payments and make rent and still have a life. Yet, he also knew then that had he not helped her pay for it just would have taken her another 20 years.
Michael also is as fond of his daughter. Some even call his daughter his twin.
