However, she is probably single since she revealed some information in an interview with The Telegraph. She talked about a whole lot of things in the discussion and also mentioned about her past relationship that ended because she wanted a change.

Michelle didn't give away the information of the man she dated and how the relationship was brought on board, but she did reveal that it was a seven-year-long relationship.

Talking about the separation, Michelle mentioned,

“My decision to be on my own was my decision, There are times when you have to face the truth, you have to face reality in your life and you either go in with someone or you go, ‘No, I want a change, I need a change. It’s my life’. It was a voice in your head that you can’t not listen to. Though you ignore it for a long time.”

Despite the seven years long romance, Michelle and her partner didn't get married. She also doesn't have a child of her own but admits; she is a godmother to many children.

When asked if she isn't interested in having a child, she gave a candid reply,

“I missed the gene. I was never born with that in my psyche, in my body. My sister Simone, from very young, you could tell instantly she did. I have many nieces and nephews and I am godmother to many children but it’s never been in me. Sounds awful, doesn’t it, “I expect people to always go, ‘Oh my God, cold b----’. Why? Why have children just because I’ve got a womb?”

Since the media didn't have the precise information about Michelle's relationship back in the days, some people even formed an opinion of her being a lesbian.

Well, now that she has cleared the air, it's evident that the prior speculation didn't hold any grounds.

Her career as an actress started in 1986, and she is continuing to date. She began her career appearing in some British television shows and has acted in few films, including Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - part one, The Invisible Woman and few more.

A strong work ethic, respecting others while being truthful to everybody is what Fairley learned from her parents.

Despite the fact Catelyn got excluded in the series' fourth season, she impacted the viewers with her work.
