Rufus Sewell's First Wife Was Yasmin Abdallah

While Sewell is known for his talent and versatility as an actor, his romantic history has sparked curiosity about his current relationship status as he has been married before.

His first marriage was to fashion journalist Yasmin Abdallah in 1999. They met when she was 19 but married after she turned 23. However, they ended their relationship one year later.

She later made headlines again in 2016 after launching an online shopping store called Style.com, developed by Conde Nast. The debut of the online retailer was different from what Abdallah expected, as it caused tensions among senior executives at Conde Nast.

The platform had claimed shoppers could shop from notable brands like Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, and more on their site, but by the time they launched the site, the brands they claimed would be available had yet to sign up with them.

The online retail platform was eventually closed, with another online retailer, Farfetch, absorbing it. The fashion journalist later remarried someone in her industry, fashion entrepreneur Kyle Robinson.

Rufus Sewell's Second Wife Was Amy Gardner

In 2004, four years after his divorce, Sewell married again. He married the producer, director, and scriptwriter Amy Gardner. Before their wedding, the couple was already parents as they welcomed a son on March 18, 2002.

There is no information on when they started dating, but on December 10, 2001, they were spotted together in London as they attended the world premiere of "Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring." Two years after they wed, the couple divorced.

As a producer, she is known for several shorts, movies, and series, including "Everything I Ever Wanted to Tell My Daughter About Men," featuring Alan Cumming, Emmett Carnahan, Lesley Manville, Jonathan Cake, and others.

Rufus Was Believed to Have Had a Girlfriend after His Two Marriages

After the end of his second marriage, Sewell dated Ami Komai. She is a model with Minelli Management, the founder of Bright Lite magazine, and one of the music duos in Kumo 99.

The couple shares a daughter, Lola, and they reportedly live in the US, although it is unclear if they are still together as they don't have pictures together on Instagram and are both private about their personal lives.

The actor supported Komai's magazine on his now-deleted Twitter account, as he once labeled it "amazing." He had confessed that he couldn't be prouder of it.

Rufus Sewell Is Married in His New 'The Diplomat' Role

In reality, while there is little information on the marital status of Sewell, he takes on the role of a married man in his latest series, "The Diplomat." His marriage to Keri Russell, who plays the role of Kate Wyler, is central in the series.

The series follows the complicated marriage of the couple as the husband, a charismatic political star, surprisingly finds himself living in his wife's shadow after an appointment puts the spotlight on her.

The first episode of the series was packed with ups and downs as there was tension between the couple. According to the show's creator, the couple's marriage draws inspiration from Bill and Hillary Clinton's relationship, among others.
