After Game of Thrones concluded in 2019, fans were actively searching for another fantasy show to serve as a replacement. The Netflix drama Shadow and Bone — which was adapted from a set of novels by Leigh Bardugo — allowed those who were missing Westeros the opportunity to escape to the world of the Grisha.

The series stars screen vet Ben Barnes as General Kirigan. It also features relative acting newcomers Jessie Mei Li as Alina Starkov and Freddy Carter as Kaz Brekker.

Freddy's character is the rebellious leader of the Dregs, who are a group of thieves. Because Freddy plays one of the show's resident bad boys — and viewers tend to have a soft spot for antiheroes — people might wonder if the actor is dating anyone.

Read on to find out where else you've seen Freddy before, and more importantly, who Freddy Carter's wife is.

Freddy Carter was dating 'Carnival Row' actress Caroline Ford, and now they're married.

Like Kaz, who has one main love interest in the Shadow and Bone book series, Freddy has long had a steady love in his own life. The actor dated Caroline Ford for several years before making her his wife. They first confirmed their relationship on social media back in 2017, though it isn't clear when the two officially starting dating. Per PopSugar, Freddy met his now wife on the set of Netflix's Free Rein in 2017.

Freddy played Peter "Pin" Hawthorne, a stable-boy-turned-duke, while Caroline's character was Sam Myers, a horse trainer.

The series premiered in 2017, and three seasons aired before it officially concluded in 2021.

In addition to her time on Free Rein, Caroline had a recurring role on the Amazon Prime series Carnival Row. The actress played Sophie Longerbane, the daughter of Ritter Longerbane (Ronan Vibert).

When did Freddy Carter get married?

Freddy and Caroline tied the knot in December 2022. "All the clichés of 'best day of your life,' 'went too fast,'" the The Shadow and Bone said of his special day in an interview with Tatler.

But, since their relationship began, Caroline and Freddy have occasionally shared updates on their respective Instagram accounts. On May 13, 2023, Freddy acknowledged his gorgeous wife on her birthday, and in June 2023, the two attended the Royal Academy of Arts summer exhibition.

Aside from 'Shadow and Bone,' what other movies and TV shows has Freddy Carter appeared in?

Though Freddy has a main role in one of Netflix's top shows, he only made his acting debut in 2017. The actor did stage work in England for several years before he booked a part as a soldier in the 2017 box office smash Wonder Woman.
