Date of birth: circa 1958

In spite of the fact that Ludwig and Rebecca separated in 2015, they still remain friends. Obviously, they maintain cordial relationships mostly because of their son.

Ludwig and Rebecca met when she has just turned 19, and he was 42. They fell in love with each other and soon moved together. In 2007 the couple welcomed the first and the only kid. Rebecca is a family person (as she always tells in her interviews). To create a happy family with her partner, she left a career of an actress and moved to Simrishamn (a community in the south of Sweden, which is usually referred as a “city”, in spite of incredibly small population there).

Ludwig worked as a mental coach. Later Rebecca and he opened a tango school in the city. But in 2011 their calm life changed. Ferguson met Richard Hobert at the market, and Swedish popular film director invited her to act in his new movie “A Simple to Antibes”. Thus, she was involved in the movie industry again, and it actually ruined her family life.

Nowadays, Ludwig lives with his son in Simrishamn. He still runs a dancing school, co-founded by him and his ex-partner, Rebecca. He spends a lot of time with the famous actress when she is free from filming new projects and comes home. He has friendly relationships with Rebecca’s new husband.

Rory (husband since 2018)

Rebecca Ferguson is a public person, but she is really skillful in keeping her private life out of the limelight. She got married in January 2018 and kept this fact in secret for several days, when finally decided to announce the change of her relationship status in press.

She keeps in secret the surname of her husband but tells that his name is Rory and he is a businessman. The actress doesn’t discover the area of his activity, but she confesses that he can work from anywhere, so very often Rory accompanies her when she is away from home with some new project. Thus, they maintain close family relationships in spite of her tough schedule. In May 2018 the couple welcomed a daughter.

Rebecca opens up to her fans though, that in spite of her busy career, some part of her soul stays at home with her son Isac. The boy lives with his dad in Simrishamn when his mother is on the set or promotes some new film. But he moves to Rebecca’s apartment when she returns to a fishing city to have some rest and recharge her batteries.

The boy studied at Simrishamn School. He watches some new films with his mother, and even repeats some songs from the film “The Greatest Showman”, where his mom appeared as Jenny Lind, the Swedish opera singer, who performed in the circus of Phineas Taylor Barnum (portrayed by Hugh Jackman).

Ferguson tells that her son is a vivid and good-natured boy, although he can be saucy sometimes.

Rebecca Ferguson is an internationally popular actress, who has appeared in a number of box office hits, such as “Hercules”, “Florence Foster Jenkins”, “The Snowman” and many others. Recently her fans have watched her great play in “Men in Black: International”, where she portrayed Riza, an alien.

She was born in Stockholm, Sweden in the family of a Swedish father and English mother. She absorbed the culture of both of her parents. The actress is bilingual; she is familiar with English history, which later helped her to get some roles in English and American films.

Rebecca studied at a prestigious Adolf Fredrik’s Music School. She started to earn money on her own at the age of 16 – the girl was signed with a model agency. As she confessed later, she hated that job, because the fashion industry is too focused on physical beauty, which usually takes the woman into a prison of insecurity.

In 1999 she quit modeling and moved her way on television. She was cast as Anna Gripenhielm in the soap opera “Nya tiger”, which was on air for 2 years. Rebecca appeared in 54 episodes of the show.

In the early 2000s, she still wasn’t sure that acting was her cup of tea. She made a pause in her career and traveled to Thailand. Then she returned to Sweden, fell in love with Ludwig Hallberg and settled in a small community of Simrishamn with him. They opened a tango school, and during several years Rebecca was just a dance coach. But in 2011 she returned to the movie industry.

The actress widened her borders and became popular not just in her home country, but all over the world after the main role in drama series “The White Queen”, which was demonstrated in USA and United Kingdom. The actress got the Golden Globe nomination for this screen work. She added some kudos as a big screen actress due to her talented play in “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” in 2015.
