Corey Stoll and his wife, Nadia Bowers, also work in the entertainment industry. Even though we only hear about Stoll in the media, they’re both talented performers. They collaborate not just in life, but also in their jobs. One’s parents have performed on stage and on television together. Working on projects such as theater performances of Macbeth is no simple task given the intensity of the primary characters they have represented, and it takes its toll on them. They do not, however, bring their job home with them most of the time, and their time at home is spent raising their kid.
Bring no drama on the stage, and bring no work home.
Stoll and Bowers were cast as Macbeth and Lady Macbeth in a series of plays staged by John Doyle in October 2019. Being placed opposite one other in such dramatic spousal roles provided them with a new challenge as a married pair. The Ant-Man actor was chosen first because he had already worked with Doyle. But it required a meeting with Doyle himself for Bowers to be cast as Lady Macbeth. The director required further confidence. He didn’t want their marriage to interfere with their performance on stage.
“He simply wanted to make sure we weren’t having pillow talk about it,” Stoll said to Vulture in 2019. “We weren’t planning to add much drama to this.”
It was simple for them to start working together, even if it was just their second time. They ascribed it to their shared acting education, marriage, and mutual understanding. They also suspected that Doyle pitted them against one other because of their close relationship. They may provide a degree of chemistry that two performers who are fresh to working together would take time to create.
Stoll and Bowers had a great time working together in Macbeth. Nonetheless, they were more sensitive to one other’s sentiments than their characters were. Another thing they were concerned about was not bringing work home and letting it interfere with their family life with their child. At home, they merely completed a few line readings, nothing too strenuous. They also discussed their professions with one another since they had duties to their kid. Stoll and Bowers realized they couldn’t abandon their duties just because they were exhausted after a long day’s labor.
Family Life of Corey Stoll with Wife and Child
Stoll and Bowers met in 2008 at an alumni gathering at NYU. In 2003, he graduated from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. She, too, graduated from there, albeit when is uncertain. They began dating, and he had the impression that he was married to his then-girlfriend. He had no idea what marriage was all about. Before getting married, the couple planned to have a family. So they attempted to have a kid but were unsuccessful for almost a year. This conflict shaped them both.
In August 2015, he told Elle, “This was our first true obstacle – emotionally and in terms of being grownups and making choices together.” It helped them understand that their love and relationship deserved to be celebrated and declared in front of everyone they cared about.
Stoll proposed to his wife in October 2014, and the couple married on June 21, 2015. They were expecting their first child by the time they married. Their kid was born in November of 2015. He began attending school in 2018 — Bowers and Stoll enthusiastically documented his first day at school on September 19, 2018.
