At an age where he is supposed to be sailing off into the sunset with his wife, actor Ian Lavender is reportedly having a crisis in his marriage. Reports are coming out claiming that the actor is all set to get divorced with his wife.
Lavender married Miki Hardy in 1993. The two were thought to be very happy with their relationship. But the new report suggests that this is far from truth. The couple is reportedly having troubles in their marriage. It is suggested that his wife of over 20 years is reportedly cheating on him.
Sources close to the actor have revealed that the couple has not communicated with each other for a long time. The distance between the two is reportedly increasing day by day.
The actor was married to actress Sue Kerchiss. The two were married in 1967, but decided to part ways after only spending 9 years together. The cause of the divorce was believed to be an extra-marital affair he had.
There are no known reports about his children.
Lavender’s first TV appearance was as the lead in a play entitled ‘Half Hour Story: Flowers at my Feet’ in 1968 at the young age of 22. Later the same year, the actor was cast as Private Pike in the BBC sitcom ‘Dad’s Army’. The performance he gave on the show made him a household name in Britain. His acting skill got better with the show and by the 70’s, he became the most recognizable face in British TV.
The actor has made appearance in several commercially successful movies and TV shows. ‘Behind Enemy Lines’, ‘Adventures of a Taxi Driver’ and ‘Three for all’ are some of his popular movies. The performances he gave in TV series like ‘A Christmas Night with the Stars’ and ‘Come Back Mr. Noah’ are also very well liked.
Lavender has overcome many serious challenges throughout his career. He was diagnosed with bladder cancer in 1993. He also survived a heart attack in the summer of 2004. So, if the actor is to get a divorce now, it is likely that he will survive it.
The 69 year old actor is not active in any of the social media platforms. This has made it very difficult for his fans to keep up with the latest happening in his life.
The actor is a huge lifelong supporter of English soccer club Aston Villa FC.
Lavender has a career that spans over 40 years. He has acted in several commercially successful movies. His net worth remains undisclosed at the moment. But considering his long and successful career as an actor, it would not be surprising if his net worth exceeded $10 million dollars.
