The happy news also comes weeks after it was rumoured that she got married to the actor Matt Stokoe, after they were spotted together wearing wedding bands. However, none of them have confirmed it yet. They got engaged to each other in 2019. They reportedly went out for the outing for the first time after Sophie had been seriously ill with COVID-19 over the Christmas time.

Sophie’s engagement to Matt

Sophie Rundle is popular for the portrayal of roles like Ada Shelby in the historical crime drama television series Peaky Blinders, Ann Walker in period drama Gentleman Jack, Vicky Budd in the television series Bodyguard, and other series and movies like The Bletchley Circle, Episodes, Jamestown, Great Expectations, The Midnight Sky, etc.

She is engaged to her fellow co-star in Jamestown in 2019. Soon after their engagement, Sophie said, ‘The whole wedding thing is weird. Everyone expects you to be desperate to be a princess for the day – that’s not really my scene.” They have been together since 2016. She most recently starred alongside her fiancé in the claustrophobic horror film Rose: A Love Story, in which they played a couple.

When Sophie tested positive for COVID-19

Shortly before Christmas, the 32-year old actor announced on Instagram that she had to go to hospital to be treated for COVID-19.

Sophie wrote, “Greetings from my sick bed. So for Christmas this year I got myself a juicy bout of COVID-19. I also have a very festive bloodshot eye from all of the hardcore vomiting I was doing in hospital. I can taste nothing, I have a cough to rival a Dickensian workhouse orphan boy.”

She further added how she was suffering from a pain from a ‘gnarly’ wisdom tooth, telling that it all added up to “quite the feast of festive ailments”.
