Juliet Mills is joining the cast of Grey's Anatomy! Famed for her work in Avanti!, Passions and Hot In Cleveland, the actress is no stranger to Hollywood. The daughter of acting legend Sir John Mills and playwright, Mary Hayley Bell, she grew up surrounded by actors, including Rex Harrison and Vivien Leigh, plus she's now married to one – Maxwell Caulfield. Keep reading for all the details on their 43-year marriage.
Best-known for his leading role in Grease 2, Maxwell Caulfield has also starred in Electric Dreams, The Boys Next Door, Empire Records and Emmerdale. The couple first met and later married when Maxwell was 21 and Juliet was 39, which initially sparked some criticism. He is a stepfather to Juliet's children, Melissa and Sean, from her previous marriages.
"Everybody is always interested in the fact that I am married to someone who is a lot younger than I am…" Juliet reflected. "There are no rules, and that's what I believe because age doesn't really matter. If you meet someone that you're really close to, someone that you love, stick with that."
Asked if it was love at first sight for them, in 2019, Juliet told Mail Online: "I suppose so. We were instant friends, immediately attracted. I believe in reincarnation and I believe I'd known Maxwell in another life. It was like saying, 'Oh hello, there you are.'"
"It was a full-blown romance," added Maxwell. "There was a connection on a psychic level. It was instantaneous for us both."
Their wedding was the "most romantic ever," according to Juliet, and Maxwell had organized the whole thing: "He planned our wedding too. It was the most romantic ever – at sunrise on a clifftop overlooking the Pacific."
As of 2019, the couple have been living in Ojai, California. "We moved to Ojai, an hour and a half's drive outside Los Angeles, to have a bigger garden" Juliet revealed to Mail Online. "We grow fruit and I have a rose garden."
