They had been pictured cuddling and kissing at London’s Primrose Hill Park by the press. The duo first met while shooting for the TV show, Rebecca, in which they were cast as lovers. Their affair created quite a stir as Charles was not only a married man, with two grown-up children, but was about thirty years older than Emilia.
- Jared Harris (2003-2009) – Emilia began dating actor Jared Harris in 2003 after working with him in the West End theatre production of Les Liaisons Dangereuses. The only positive outcome of the heavily criticized play was their relationship. They got married in July 2005 after dating for two years. However, their marriage was unraveling fast as they struggled to cope with the long distance dynamic of their relationship. Plus, she suffered a miscarriage in 2007. A year later, in 2008, they revealed in a joint statement that they had decided to end their marriage. It was later revealed that her depression, which was brought on by the miscarriage, was also responsible for their separation. In 2009, they got officially divorced.

And, he remained married to her during the entire course of their relationship. After dating for nearly four years, they decided to go their separate ways in the early months of 2016. Their separation was confirmed by a very unlikely source – her father, Edward Fox, who insisted that Marco and Emilia have remained good friends.
