Christian Camargo and Juliet Rylance met for the first time in 1997 during the inaugural season of the Globe Theatre in London while he was working with Juliet’s stepfather, Mark Rylance. The two instantly became friends and got closer to each other. However, the initial days weren’t easy.
Recalling the late 90s, the actor said,
Back then, Juliet was the boss’s untouchable daughter. And there’s this slight age difference.
Things, however, took a turn for the better in the fall of 2008. Co-incidentally or perhaps through a stroke of destiny – the actor was appearing on Broadway in All My Sons. At the same time, Rylance was in town on an extended visit with her stepfather who was also on Broadway in Boeing-Boeing.
Christian Camargo and Juliet Rylance are married since 2008.
Christian said, “Projects started winding down, but saying goodbye really wasn’t an option. We needed to stay together. So in November 2008, we made a quick visit to City Hall. It was lovely and wonderful.”
The couple is married for over a decade now, but do not share any children yet.

During a joint interview at the Brooklyn Academy, when asked if they take their work home, Camargo said “Absolutely not,” before instantly changing his tone.
“Yes. We do run lines together. But I definitely have my own way, and Juliet has her own way, and we’re respecting that. I’m more the cat going into the cellar under the steps to die, and Juliet just says to the room: ‘I’m here. Let’s everyone get together.’ The analogies don’t quite match, do they? My process is more solitary and isolating. Maybe I’m wrong. It’s always changing.”
Meanwhile, Juliet opted not to beat around the bush as she suggested it’s a learning phase in their relationship. For her, it’s fascinating to figure out when to be indulged in work and when to step back.
