Jeremy Strong is an American actor. He is best known for his role as Kendall Roy in the television series Succession. He won a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series in 2020 and a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Television Series Drama in 2022. Time magazine named him one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2022.
Strong has appeared in a number of acclaimed films portraying people such as John George Nicolay in Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln (2012), Lee Harvey Oswald in Peter Landesman’s Parkland (2013), James Reeb in Ava DuVernay’s Selma (2014), and Jerry Rubin in Aaron Sorkin’s The Trial of the Chicago 7 (2020). He also appeared in Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty (2012), Adam McKay’s The Big Short (2015), Sorkin’s Molly’s Game (2017), and James Gray’s Armageddon Time (2022).
In 2016, Strong married Emma Wall, a Danish psychiatrist; they had met four years earlier at a party in New York during Hurricane Sandy. They have three daughters, born in April 2018, November 2019, and September 2021. They reside in New York and have homes in Copenhagen, and Tisvilde.
Jeremy Strong Wife: Who is Emma Wall?
Jeremy Strong may be a star in front of the camera, but his wife Emma Wall works behind the scenes.
Wall, a Denmark-born documentary director, married the Succession star in 2016 after meeting him at a party in 2012. Together, the couple shares three daughters.
Though they tend to keep their relationship private, Wall chimed in during Strong’s 2021 interview with The New Yorker when asked if she noticed a difference in her award-winning husband while he was playing Kendall Roy.
“He does a really good job of maintaining what he’s doing but also creating a space for the family and a normal life,” she said.
However, Strong said his wife’s answer surprised him. “I think she feels a sort of energy shift,” he said. “But it does make me feel like I’m living a double life.”
Here’s everything to know about Jeremy Strong’s wife, Emma Wall, and her relationship with the actor.
Strong and Wall met in October 2012 at a party in New York being held during Hurricane Sandy.
In 2016, Strong and Wall tied the knot at Dragsholm Slot, a castle in Zealand, Denmark. One of the oldest secular buildings in Denmark, the original castle was built around 1215, but it has undergone restorations over the years to conserve the building.
Wall is a child psychiatrist, who most recently worked in the Los Angeles foster care system and as a clinician and educator at UCLA.
She received her BA from Brown University and went on to attend Oxford University Medical School, where she graduated with honors. Wall completed her fellowship and residency at both Columbia University and Cornell University and has worked with refugees and volunteered in hospitals around the world.
In addition to her work as a psychiatrist, Wall is also a documentary filmmaker and the co-founder of Guest House Productions. With her Guest House cofounder Betsy Hershey, she co-directed Guerilla Habeas, a documentary that tells the story of two lawyers fighting US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) over immigrants threatened by deportation.
“We started on this film at a time when I think so many of us were really appalled by what was happening in the immigration system,” she told Deadline. “So we started this at the beginning of 2019, following the Muslim ban, following Trump’s zero-tolerance policy that was separating families at the border. And we — as so many people, I think, in this country — were feeling incredibly helpless and hopeless. It felt like these grave injustices, these human rights violations, and we didn’t know what to do about it.”
The documentary had its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival in September 2022 and premiered in February 2023 as a part of MSNBC’s “The Turning Point” documentary series.
