Owen McDonnell Bio: With Girlfriend Or Partner? Plus Age, Height, Family And More

Irish actor Owen McDonnell, who is best known for his portrayal of Sergeant Jack Driscoll in RTÉ Television's Single-Handed, is blessed with an absorbing love life with a supportive partner.

But who is the charming lady Owen has been spending his life with? The article covers a brief account of his personal life including his bio!

Married With Partner?

The prominent actor is currently in a relationship with his long-term partner, Jill, who is a British native working in corporate finance. However, the information regarding how the couple met and began their relationship is yet a mystery as neither Owen nor Jill has revealed much about his love life.

But, Owen sporadically talks about his girlfriend in his interviews. Back in 2009, the 44-year-old unveiled in an interview with The Northen Echo that he has immense support from his partner and has equal respect for each other's profession.

As Owen spends much of his life on the road traveling to various theatres, he remains far from his partner time to time. However, those distances have not affected their relationship till now. Owen once revealed that he didn't wish to be far away from Jill and made three long-term aspirations which are:

To be healthy, happy and, if we have kids, to give them everything they want.

Not just that, he also shared that they are happy to see each other whenever they get chance and Owen tries not to go away as much as he did previously.

Despite the different professional backgrounds, the couple maintains a sound understanding between them, but since 2010, the couple has kept their love life confined as they have not been spotted in social media and interviews till date.

Perhaps they are enjoying their low-key love life being husband and wife and hopefully have achieved those aspirations.
