Inside Sunny Ozell’s life and their marriage: Patrick Stewart said he’d never met anyone like her

Actor Patrick Stewart of “Star Trek” is happily married to American singer-songwriter Sunny Ozell, who is 38 years younger than him.

Sir Patrick Stewart, an acclaimed British actor, has traveled to many odd new worlds while playing the role of Captain Luke Picard on Star Trek, but he has never met anyone who compares to his wife, Sunny Ozell.

In spite of the significant age gap between them, Stewart and Ozell were able to develop a romantic relationship in New York, which ultimately resulted in their marriage and a love that has stood the test of time.

Sir Patrick Stewart

The 13th of July 1940 found Patrick Stewart being born in Yorkshire, England, and he endured a challenging childhood. His English teacher inspired him to start performing when he was in school, and he hasn’t stopped doing it since then.

Since 1966, Stewart has been a member of the esteemed Royal Shakespeare Company, where he has established himself as a brilliant Shakespearean actor. However, in 1987 he became a household name because of his role as the smooth Captain Luke Picard in the television series “Star Trek: Generations.”

Stewart has starring roles in multiple “Star Trek” films and was selected to play Professor Charles Xavier in the enormously successful “X-Men” trilogy produced by Marvel.

On June 2, 2010, the late Queen Elizabeth II bestowed the honor of knighthood upon Stewart. Sunny Ozell is the actor’s third wife, and he is the father of two children from his previous marriages.

Who Is Patrick Stewart’s Wife, Sunny Ozell, and How She is?

Sunny Ozell was born on December 23, 1978, in Reno, Nevada, and both of her parents have deep and abiding passions for music. They began encouraging their daughter to pursue a career in music at a young age, and when she was just four years old, they bought her a violin.

Sunny began her musical career when she was 11 years old and by the time she was 13, she was taking opera lessons with a teacher. Sunny continued to be involved with music during her time as a college student in Boulder, Colorado, and whenever she had the opportunity, she sang blues.

She followed her love of music all the way to New York, where she began her career as a live musician in a number of the city’s clubs. There, she honed her own unique combination of jazz, blues, and classically-influenced sounds.

It was in New York that she first made the acquaintance of Patrick Stewart. Ozell was working as a server at Franny’s restaurant while the actor was in New York City to participate in a production of “Macbeth” at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

The two people got to know each other over time and eventually decided to live together in 2012. Stewart posed the inquiry, and Ozell gave a positive response. On September 7, 2013, the wedding was held alongside the breathtaking Lake Tahoe in Ozell’s home state of Nevada.

There is a gap in age of thirty-eight years between Stewart and Ozell, which results in the actor being five years older than his wife’s father. Ozell has stated that he and his wife had a “very normal and loving” marriage despite their differences.

And Stewart didn’t only add a wife to his family; he also added a “father”. Ozell’s father was initially opposed to the idea of his daughter marrying a much older man, but the two of them are now quite close, and his father-in-law even refers to him as “son.”

Stewart and Ozell have not been blessed with any children of their own, but Stewart has two children from a previous marriage to the actress Sheila Falconer, to whom he was married from 1966 to 1990. Ozell has taken on the role of stepmother to those two children.

Following the conclusion of his marriage to Falcone, Patrick Stewart began a relationship with Wendy Neuss, the producer of “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” 1997 marked the beginning of the couple’s relationship, and the following year they wed. Unfortunately, after three years of marriage, the couple decided to divorce.

Both Stewart and Ozell have a deep-seated love for animals and are actively involved in rehoming stray and abandoned pets. They have a pit dog named Zoe that they foster, and she is featured prominently in many of their social media posts.
