Actress and political commentator Morgan Brittany and stuntman Jack Gill first met in 1980 when they were both working on the successful TV series The Dukes of Hazard. Morgan had been warned that stuntmen were nothing but trouble. When Jack tried to chat her up, he recalls, “She was a bit frosty.”
Once Morgan and Jack started talking they never stopped. These two straight-arrow actors had a proper “no living together” engagement, followed by a big family wedding. That was over 30 years ago. They never stopped working, and they never stopped being married – to one another. Morgan and Jack even raised two children who are “in the biz.”
In a world of Hollywood shack ‘n’ rack relationships and cheater scandals, these two have as normal a life together as you could imagine. I just had to ask, “How do you do that?”
Morgan attributes the success of their marriage to having only actually been together five out of the 32 years of their marriage. They have very busy schedules that often keep them miles or continents apart. One of the drawbacks of a two actor household is that you can never really make plans. Things change and plans require instant rearranging by a very understanding partner. Fortunately, Morgan and Jack understand one another, and the love each has for their craft.
Morgan considers herself fortunate to be married to a guy who is not only well respected in his craft, but is well respected in his personal life. It is a very good life.
And that’s a wrap!
