💕 True love sparked by Jane Austen film?

Emma Thompson and Greg Wise's love story blossomed on the set of "Sense and Sensibility," where they met and fell for each other. Emma, embodying the pragmatic Elinor Dashwood, was drawn to Greg's charm and intelligence. Amidst the whirlwind of filming, their connection deepened, evident in stolen glances and whispered conversations.

Thompson wrote the screenplay as a step to healing after divorcing Kenneth Branagh for his affair on the set of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and has publicly declared that Greg helped her move into a new future. 

Their romance culminated not in a scripted moment, but in the quiet intimacy of their shared experiences. While specifics of their courtship remain private, their love endured beyond the confines of the set. In 2003, they exchanged vows in a private ceremony, solidifying their commitment.

Their family grew with the arrival of their daughter, Gaia Romilly Wise, in 1999, followed by the adoption of their son, Tindyebwa Agaba Wise, in 2003.

Throughout their journey, Emma and Greg have remained steadfast in their love and devotion to each other, inspiring countless admirers with their enduring romance. Theirs is a love story grounded in mutual respect, trust, and admiration, a testament to the power of love found unexpectedly.
