Susie Harriet is a  South African jazz vocalist turned singing teacher and dancer, best known as the wife of renowned English actor, Dan Stevens. Her husband is known for playing Matthew Crawley in the ITV drama series "Downton Abbey"(2010–2012).

Early Life & Career

Susie Hariet was born in South Africa and belongs to white ethnicity and holds a South African nationality. Her mother was an actress, however, she has not revealed her name. Hello Magazine reports that in addition to her jazz singing, Hariet also works as a teacher.

The Daily Telegraph referred to her a “jazz vocalist-turned singing teacher” in 2011. Hariet has played a role in the creation of Stevens’ character for his role in "High Maintenance". She  has also  acted in three movies, Worth (2007), The Dark Room (2010) and  Forget Me Not (2010)

Personal Life: Married, Husband

Susie Harriet rose to the mainstream when she got married to an English actor, Dan Stevens in 2009. Hariet is seven years senior to Steven, but, they could not care less about it, after all, age is just a number. In 2012, South African TV station Channel 24 reported that the couple met while she was working in England. Stevens said, “She stayed on for a bit and she was working in theatre.

The couple met when she was doing a show, and he was doing a show next door, they used to hang out. During an interview with the Australian, he revealed that “She was just beautiful, that’s all there was to it.”

The couple married after she was pregnant with six months and gave a birth to their daughter, Willow in 2009. The godmother to the couple’s daughter is Stevens’ Permission co-star Rebecca Hall. In 2012, they welcomed their second child a son named, Aubrey.

Interview

Stevens revealed to the Australian, while their son is named Aubrey for “Aubrey Beardsley, the 19th-century English illustrator. But also for C Aubrey Smith.” He also told the newspaper that the name Willow was partly because “I’d never met a Willow.

He added, Susie also helped him to prepare for having to sing in Beauty and the Beast, who admitted, “I sing occasionally, but I don’t think anyone would want to hear me singing Matthew Crawley. The preparation was so intense and different to anything I’ve taken on before, physically and vocally and also the technology we employed in achieving that. It was so groundbreaking and mysterious and weird and wonderful. I really felt all the sort of fairytale magic,” explained Stevens.

I’m lucky to be married to someone who entirely gets what I do. She is totally sympathetic to the actor’s life. Her own mother was an actress, so she sort of grew up with it.” He wonders if Susie’s own view of class may, subconsciously, have been part of the attraction. “She has absolutely no concept of the British class system and, after 10 years here she’s still trying to work it out. I suppose it was refreshing to meet someone who had the same level of bemusement about it as me.

Moved from London to New York

In  2012, Channel 24 in South Africa reported that Stevens' family loves “coming out to South Africa, it’s our second home. We spend quite a lot of time in Jo’burg.” While the Observer reported that Stevens along with his family moved from London to New York in 2012.

He told the newspaper, “This feels big. Refreshing the family and coming here has been a sort of seismic shift.” Stevens also told Broadway.com shortly after the move that the family had settled in Brooklyn. He said: "We’re absolutely loving it. We’ve been enjoying the park and the museums."

We took a trip on the Staten Island Ferry today to see, as my daughter calls it, the “Statue of Liberty.” And I really enjoy going on the boating lake in Central Park with my daughter. According to a New Yorker feature, the family lives in the Brooklyn Heights neighborhood.
