For the first few years, the couple didn’t have much money and pushed back their plans on having children. When Santiago finally found success and had enough money to support children, the pair came across great misfortune. 

Anna faced miscarriages twice in a row. The events were very taxing on the duo, and they went through a very tough time. They even decided not to have children altogether. 

Just as the pair decided to remain a childless couple, they were blessed with a child. In April of 2016, the actor and his wife welcomed a new member to their family: a son named Kilian Emiliano.

Santiago’s debut work was the British television drama series, Spooks, in 2003. He appeared as a minor character in various other works. His first lead role was in the 2005 series, Empire, where he portrays Octavius, Rome’s first emperor.
