Marcia Gay Harden has filed for divorce, according to People magazine. She has been married to Thaddaeus Scheel for 15 years but the relationship will now be ended, her representative has told the magazine. Marcia's spokesperson told People "For the sake of the couple's three children, Harden would like to request that the family's privacy be respected at this time. No further comments will be made on this matter, and we thank you for your understanding."
Marcia Gay Harden and Thaddeus Scheel have a 13 year-old daughter (Eulala Grace Scheel) and 7 year-old twins (Julitta Dee Scheel and Hudson Scheel Harden). Both Marcia and Thaddaeus work in the acting profession, though arguably, Marcia has enjoyed a more successful career than her husband. Her breakthrough role came in 1990, with Miller's Crossing and since then, she has enjoyed a steady career, the pinnacle of which has been the Oscar that she won in 2001. Marcia won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in Pollock, alongside Ed Harris. This was followed by another Oscar nomination in 2004, for her supporting role in Mystic River, with Sean Penn, Tim Robbins and Kevin Bacon. She has also found success on Broadway, in God of Carnage, for which she won a Tony award.
It is unclear, as yet, what the custody arrangements are expected to be regarding Thaddaeus and Marcia's children.
