Who Is Fiona Loudon and Where Was She Born?

Fiona Loudon was born on May 5, 1968, in Scotland, the United Kingdom under the zodiac sign of Taurus and belongs to the Caucasian ethnic group. Fiona is a citizen of Scotland which is a direct result of her birth in the country. Not much is known about the identity of Fiona Loudon’s birth parents or what they do for a living.

Other aspects of her family background such as questions regarding if she was an only child or not as the actress is quite private about her early life details and as such she has never revealed the identity of her siblings if she has any.

Fiona Loudon comes across as a sufficiently and adequately educated woman, but there are no verifiable records that track the progress of her formal education from elementary to primary, secondary, and university education. There are publications that however suggest that Daniel Craig’s ex-wife attended London University and graduated in an unidentified discipline.

Fiona Loudon Was Daniel Craig’s Wife For Two Years

Fiona Loudon and James Bond star Daniel Craig tied the knot in 1992 but the marriage remarkably lasted for only two years. They became well acquainted with each other in the early 1990s before publicizing their relationship in 1991. The following year, the couple took things a step further and tied the knot in a secret wedding ceremony. The one rather interesting aspect of the marriage is how relatively short-lived it was as they ended up divorced in 1994.

Several years after the divorce, Fiona and her ex-husband, Daniel Craig, both agree on one thing as the reason behind their split as a couple in 1994. They both blame the failure of their marriage on the fact that they were still very immature at the time of their wedding.

Interestingly, the couple who are only separated by a two-month gap in favor of Craig, were both 24 years old when they got married and Craig at least believes that they both jumped into the marriage thing too early and were thus unprepared to deal with the unavoidable and unexpected challenges that the marriage faced.

She Has A Child With Daniel Craig

Fiona Loudon’s marriage to Daniel Craig produced one child. The couple was fortunate to be blessed by a daughter they named Ella Loudon Craig. She was born in 1992, the same year as her parents’ marriage.

That piece of information makes one wonder if Fiona was pregnant on her wedding day and also if the pregnancy was what Craig was referencing when he said that he and Fiona had rushed into marriage. The only people who can provide any convincing answer to that question however would be Loudon and Craig.

Ella Craig is the only child between her parents and was only about two years old when they made the decision to end their marriage. After the divorce, Fiona became the primary caregiver of her daughter with Craig. That fact did not stop the popular actor from being actively involved in the upbringing of a daughter who has so far remained his only offspring from two marriages (more on that later).

Father and daughter have a good relationship with each other and spend quite a lot of time in each other’s company. How much they enjoy each other’s company is reflected in the fact that Ella was one of the four guests at her father’s second wedding in 2011. It would appear that Ella Craig has inherited the artistic abilities of her parents and has also become quite the on-screen star like her iconic father.

She, however, chose to adopt her mother’s maiden name and is known as Ella Loudon on her IMDb page which shows that she has appeared in movies such as Short Term (2022), Trauma is a Time Machine (2018), and Maneater (2017).

Fiona Loudon Has Never Re-married

Details of the theater actress’ love life are as private as every other aspect of her life but we know that she is currently single. As a matter of fact, Fiona Loudon never remarried after her split from Daniel Craig instead choosing to dedicate her life to raising and caring for her only daughter with the popular actor.

It is not known if she had any flings or relationships, short-term or long term during this period. It would truly be remarkable if she had remained celibate all this time. Daniel Craig on the other hand has had a slew of romantic entanglements since the break-up. His first relationship after the divorce lasted 7 years from 1997 to 2004 with a German actress named Heike Makatsch.

In 2005, he started dating a film producer known as Satsuki Mitchell. They even became engaged to be married before calling things off in 2010. In December of the same year, he started dating Dream House co-star Rachael Weisz. This time around he went a step further and they got married on June 22, 2011, in a very private ceremony attended by just four guests, including Craig’s daughter Ella and Rachel’s son from a previous marriage.

Her Career Started As A Theater Actress

As earlier mentioned, Fiona Loudon’s career as an actress was predominantly in theaters where she did measurably well. She, however, chose to abandon the profession to focus on being a wife and subsequently a dedicated mother to Ella. Fiona’s ex-husband, Daniel Craig, on the other hand, has close to 80 movie credits to his name including Defiance, One Life, Dream House, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and The Adventures of Tintin.

The actor, whose first movie coincidentally came out the same year as his wedding to Fiona Loudon, has had some really good film roles but his most important and iconic role to date remains the role of James Bond. He began playing this role in 2006 when he was cast in Casino Royale as the sixth actor to play the iconic British spy. He has reprised the role in about four other movies, including Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, Spectre, and most recently No Time to Die.

What is Fiona Loudon’s Net Worth?

The former theater actress is currently worth an estimated $10 million which is mostly funds from child support and other unknown business ventures unrelated to acting, seeing as she never made it quite far in that regard. Her net worth pales in comparison to that of her ex-husband whose impressive acting career has helped him amass a net worth estimated to be about $130 million.

She Currently Resides In London

Fiona’s name will always be associated with Daniel Craig as his first wife and she can always bank on the fact that the marriage afforded her the opportunity to bask in the spotlight. Anyone who seeks to get in touch with the actress these days can do so at her home in London. Her tenuous grasp on her privacy hasn’t diminished one bit as she doesn’t even have any social media account for online communication.
