Who are Michael and partner Anna from Gogglebox?
Michael Sheen has been on our screens for years, playing some major TV roles. Most recently, he has starred in Amazon Prime series Good Omens. Now, the 52-year-old is taking a step back from film sets and is instead sitting in his lounge for the Gogglebox series.
Michael and Anna have been dating since 2019, their first public outing together was in May of 2019 at the premiere of Good Omens. The pair even starred alongside each other on BBC’s Staged. This means it’s not their first time sharing the screen with each other.
Anna is from Helsingborg in southern Sweden but she is currently living in New York with Michael.
Anna has studied in London at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) and has previously starred in theatre plays such as Othello, Spring Awakening, and Gloria.
Do Michael and Anna have any children?
Michael and Anna have one child together and announced the news on Twitter in July 2019.
Anna gave birth to their daughter Lyra just two months later, with Michael writing at the time: “Happy to say that at 8:41 am on Monday, September 23rd our beautiful daughter Lyra was born.”
Michael is also a dad to Lily Mo Sheen, who he shares with actress Kate Beckinsale.

Stand Up To Cancer Gogglebox episode
The series announced the news of Anna and Michael joining on Twitter saying that they will join the show’s charity episode that airs today October 15th 2021.
However, there has also been recent news that some original cast members from Gogglebox have sadly taken a step back from the show.
Sadly, Linda McGarry, Carolyne Michael and her two children Louis and Alex, along with Marina Wingrove are going to take a break from the Channel 4 series.
“We have had people from the show pass away recently. We lost Mary and Andy. And a little while ago we lost Pete,” executive producer Victoria Ray said. “Their loved ones won’t be taking part in the show for the moment. Understandably, they want their privacy.”
