Is Cosmo Jarvis Married? Who Is His Wife?

Jarvis, 34 Years, prioritizes living a simple life away from public interest, especially in his personal life. So, his low-key stature left fans craving his relationship status for years until 2021, when he revealed that he is a married man.

During an interview with Square Mile in December 2021, when asked, “What gets you out of bed in the morning?” the Raised by Wolves actor jokingly said it was his ‘legs and arms’ and later stated it was actually his “wife” who woke him up or, if he is away from home, his alarm clock.

Besides that, Cosmo didn’t mention anything about his wife or give any details on his married life or courtship.

In a February 2024 interview with The Guardian, the interviewer asked if Jarvis still felt a connection to the US, to which he stated he didn’t—in fact, not even to Totnes, England, where he grew up. The answer followed his concern about starting a family: “I don’t think about it. There are more pressing objectives afoot, like starting a family.”

In the interview article, the interviewer also narrated Cosmo’s gestures and appearance, including his wedding ring.

The name of his wife is still a mystery. Even if some sources claim the British actor married his longtime partner, Emily, no official confirmation exists. There are no reports that he and his wife share children.

Cosmo’s Parents Are Divorced: More On Family

The Hunter Killer actor was born to an Armenian-American mother and a British father, but he never mentioned their names. In 2011, during an interview with Theartsdesk, Cosmo gave a brief insight into his family- and his bitter relationship with his mom.

His mother was a first-generation Armenian-American who worked as an artist and was the daughter of a doctor living in New Jersey.

On the other hand, his dad was in the merchant navy, whom he called a guy who lived out of a canvas bag boat.

In his interviews, Jarvis admits that his father’s experience in the seas (with whom he is still in touch) helped him get a clear picture of his character, John Blackthorne, in Shogun (2024), starring Hiroyuki Sanada and Anna Sawai.

After Cosmo’s parents married, they failed to get a proper job. So, his father convinced his mother to move to England so that he could study maritime law at Plymouth and earn more money.

Things in his family turned sour after his dad and mom divorced when he was about 13 or 14. Even after their split, Jarvis stayed with his father for a year. His single mother got custody of him and his brother, Fletcher Jarvis, while his dad left England after struggling due to a legal battle.

Now, his father lives in Europe with his new wife.

The Calm With Horses star also stated that he didn’t move out with his father because he didn’t want to leave his younger brother; otherwise, the latter would have chosen the wrong path.

Bitter Relation With Mother

During the [aforementioned] interview with Theartsdesk, Jarvis admitted to being difficult to raise and doing bad things—but in retaliation. When asked if his song “Mummy’s Been Drinking,” about an irresponsible mother, was autobiographical, he admitted it was.

Cosmo talked about his mother’s problems with alcohol- while stating she did not have alcoholism, he said that her personality did change to violent after drinking. In one such ugly incident, he reportedly gave her stitches in her head.

Also, he said that he was living in Paignton, England, with his friends and pointed specifically out his mother’s residence, “My Mum lives in Totnes, so I can’t f**k stay there.”

After all these years, there are no details on whether the mother-son duo rekindled their relationship.
