Victor Garber married longtime partner Rainer Andreesen in Canada over the weekend!

Congratulations to Victor Garber who is now a married man.

Victor and Rainer Andreesen, his partner of 16 years, tied the not over the weekend in Canada.

It was Andreesen who broke the news by posting a photo of the couple on his Instagram account with the caption, “YES WE DID! #justgotmarried#elopedintofino #canada@therealvictorgarber #after16years.”

Victor, 66, is best known for playing Jack Bristow on the television series Alias but he’s had a long an successful career on stage, in films and television.

He played Jesus in the film version of Godspell, played John Wilkes Booth in the Broadway production of Assassins,  was the ship captain in Titanic and portrayed  Canadian ambassador to Iran Ken Taylor in Argo.

The actor currently guest stars as Dr. Martin Stein on The Flash and will appear as a regular on Legends of Tomorrow.

It was on this blog in January 2013 that Garber first publicly acknowledged Andreessen when he told me that they would be attending the SAG Awards together.

We were at the TV Critics Association Press Tour in Pasadena where Victor appeared with the cast of the NBC drama Deception.

While he was on stage, I quickly looked at his Wikipedia page and saw this: ‘He lives in New York with his companion of 13 years, Rainer Andreesen.’ I then found all kinds of photos of this most handsome couple together.

I wondered, ‘Did he come out publicly and I missed it?’

After the panel, I just decided to ask him: “Wikipedia lists Rainer Andreesen as your partner. I wondered if that’s something that’s public, that you’ve confirmed.”

He seemed surprised by the question but said: ‘I don’t really talk about it but everybody knows. He’s going to be out here with me for the SAG Awards.”

Now everybody really does know – that they are married!

7 Remarks

  1. Mazel Tov handsome gentlemen-live long and prosper!

  2. Wow! Garber’s husband is very good looking! Congrats to both of them.

  3. @K. Martinez-he’s a model.

  4. That’s so wonderful. I wish them nothing but the best.

  5. @FAEN Yes, after my comment I looked him up and saw that he was a model. I generally prefer mature men over young men and he is hot. Can’t believe he’s only a few years younger than me.

  6. @K. Martinez-Right? I tend to gravitate to older men myself and he is HOT! Lucky Victor lol.

  7. “Married in Canada”. Take umbrage (lol). Narrowed down to Tofino on Vancouver Island in British Columbia but maybe the newlyweds wanted to keep that a secret? Bugs me when people generalize, like Canada is this itsy bitsy dot on the map. Was curious if they’d married in London (Ontario) as that’s where Victor came from, or Toronto (Ontario), the heart but not capital of Canada. I am Canadian but live in the United States. Guess I couldn’t be more direct than that! LOL! Don’t have to print just FYI.
