Gabriel Macht’s Wife And Life Behind The Scenes Of Suits

Gabriel Macht is best known for playing confident, smooth-talking Harvey Specter in the hit sitcom Suits. But who is Gabriel Macht’s wife and what about their life behind the camera?

Alongside Meghan Markle and Patrick J Adams, Gabriel Macht played high-flying lawyer Harvey Spectre. In one of the biggest sitcoms to hit our screens, the actor also acted alongside his wife Jacinda Barrett. We’re looking at her career, past relationships and their personal lives.

Who Is Gabriel Macht’s Wife?

Jacinda Barrett was born in Brisbane, Australia in 1972. Barret started modelling in Europe at the age of 17 after winning the Dolly Covergirl contest in Australia in 1988.

Far from any regular or boring hobbies, Barrett largely enjoys skydiving.

She once explained:

“it gets scarier the more you do it. After a while, you realise you’re flinging yourself out of a perfectly good plane for no apparent reason.”

She later attended the British American Drama Academy in Oxford and in 1997, the model made her film debut in Campfire Tales.

Her Acting Career

Acting in MTV’s The Real World, was the first time that Barrett became known to an American audience.

However, her first big break came when she appeared in The Human Stain alongside Anthony Hopkins and Nicole Kidman. The film, directed by Oscar winner Robert Benton allowed Barrett to receive critical praise.

In 2004, the actress appeared in Bridget Jones: The Edge Of Reason before also appearing the TV series Zero Hour and Bloodline.

Her Previous Relationship with Chris Hardwick

Barret previously had a four-year relationship with comedian Chris Hardwick. In 2018, the actress came out in support of Chris after his ex-girlfriend, Chloe Dykstra, accused him of abusing and sexually assaulting her.

Taking to Instagram, she said:

“The accuser’s story bears no resemblance to the one I shared with him all those years ago, but what is of supreme importance here is that every woman and every man deserves a voice…

“Everyone deserves to be heard. A rush to judgement denies the right to due process; the Metoo movement deserves due process.”

Her Relationship With Gabriel Macht

Gabriel Macht married Australian actress Jacinda Barrett in 2004. Three years later they welcomed their little girl, Satine Anais Geraldine Macht, to the world in Los Angeles. Later, in 2014, they welcomed a son in February 2014 named Luca.

Following in his father’s footsteps, Gabriel Macht is the son of actor Stephen Macht who appeared in Graveyard Shift, Amityville as well as in Suits as Professor Gerard.

Jacinda Barrett had a recurring role on the show during the second season where she played a love interest of Harvey’s.
