Rory Kinnear, whose birth name is Rory Michael Kinnear, is an English actor and playwright who has performed with the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Royal National Theatre.
He received the Olivier Award for Best Actor in 2014 for his performance as William Shakespeare’s villain Iago in the National Theatre production of Othello.
Kinnear has been having a good time lately. Not only has the 43-year-old actor reprised his role as MI6’s Chief Of Staff Bill Tanner in the newest James Bond film, No Time To Die, but he also starred in a new BBC One drama, Ridley Road.
In Ridley Road, Kinnear co-starred as real-life fascist commander Colin Jordan with Eddie Marsan and Tom Varey. With so much going on in his professional life, people are sure to be curious about his personal life.
Rory Kinnear is committed to someone
Kinnear has been engaged to fellow actress Pandora Colin for a long time. Additionally, the couple shares two children, Riley and Hope, and lives in Kennington, South London.

While some websites claim the two are married, others report that the love birds are engaged. However, it’s unclear which is accurate, and the couple is reasonably discreet when posting things on social media.
However, Kinnear did go out about his connection with Colin in 2017, telling The Guardian: “On my first date with Pandora, we passed by some children holding a garage sale. I bought some kid’s Postman Pat wellies, and I kept them, and both our children wore them. You could say I was keen.”
Pandora Colin is very supportive of her partner
As the engaged duo shares the same profession, both know the ups and downs of the industry. And Kinnear has highlighted his future wife’s support for his objectives and the drastic measures she takes to assist him.
In a 2013 interview with the Evening Standard about his debut theatrical play, The Herd, the actor stated that his fiance took him away to live alone in a cabin in the Lake District so he could compose the screenplay. And it was effective.
He finished his first draft in around two and a half weeks. “I was resolved not to return with something incomplete,” he explained. In 2014, The Herd won the Critics’ Circle Most Promising Playwright Award.
Colin has been in films such as The Lady In The Van, where she co-starred with Maggie Smith. She is also well-known for her roles in Penny Dreadful and the popular series of 2019, Chernobyl.
