Toby Stephens Shirtless, Young, Wife, Workout. Famewatchers, did you know that Dame Maggie Smith aka Professor McGonagall aka Dowager Countess of Grantham has kids? These two most prominent characters in the many movies and TV shows she starred in are so iconic and so stuck in our minds such that we were kinda surprised to discover that she is actually the off-screen in-real-life mother of Toby Stephens, the lead star of Netflix’s Lost in Space.
Toby’s later father (he passed away in 1995) is an acclaimed actor in his own right too and, to quote wikipedia, “he was one of the most respected actors of his generation and was at one time regarded as the natural successor to Laurence Olivier”.
We must say that we are loving Toby in Lost in Space and we are glad we gave the show a second chance. It did not wow us the first season but we are loving the second season so far and Deena, who binged watch the third installment, says it is really good too. Anyhoo, here are some photos of Toby when he was younger:
And here are more recent photos of the actor which we grabbed from Men’s Health Magazine which featured him along with his Black Sails co-stars Tom Hopper and Luke Arnold:
He made on the cover of the Italian version too!
Toby Stephens Gay or Straight. He played an LGBT character (pirate captain James Flint) on Black Sails but he is straight in real life. First, here’s a screencap of the actor from an episode in Black Sails where he goes kissy kissy with his male lover Thomas Hamilton (played by Rupert Penry Jones).
In real life, our hunky ginger is married to wife Anna-Louise Plowman who is also in the acting biz. In fact, she also appeared in Black Sails where he starred as the chambermaid Mrs. Hudson.
Off camera but on stage, Toby and Anna-Louise played a married couple in the production of Private Lives by Noel Coward. Here’s the real life lovebirds playing fictional lovebirds at the Gielgud Theatre.
By the way, we should note that Toby has won acting awards as a theater actor. We are still looking for photos of him with his trophies but he’s won the Sir John Gielgud Award (best actor) as well as the Ian Charleson Award (best classical actor under 30) for his role as Coriolanus in the stage play of the same name. For his onscreen roles, he was nominated for a best actor Satellite Award for his role as Rochester in Jane Eyre and for a best supporting actor Saturn Award for his role as Gustav Graves in the James Bond movie Die Another Day.
