However, we have come to know that Russell is a family man and is a father of four children. It seems that he has been married twice but hasn’t revealed much information about his marital relationship.
In an article published on 'press reader' on August 2015, it came to light that his second wife is Shelagh, a theatre designer. Well, Russell shares two children with his second wife Shelagh and two children from his first marriage.
Since there is no any information available about Russell’s love life and partner, many people doubted his sexuality. Likewise, his character Ser Brynden (Blackfish) Tully in Game of Thrones was also misunderstood as gay as no wife or child of Blackfish was left behind when he was killed on the show.
In an interview with OK! in April 2017, Russell was asked about Blackfish’s sexuality in GOT, wishing to know whether Blackfish was gay as he never was married. Russell then replied-
"I assumed he was hetoresexual but it works either way, there's nothing that has been done so far or alluded to that says the other way. It's an interesting theory of many, many, many theories of every character in Game of Thrones!"
