Amanda Abbington’s Son Joe Freeman

Joe Freeman Biography – Joe Freeman Wiki

Joe Freeman is the son of Martin Freeman and Amanda Abbington. He set to follow in his parents’ acting footsteps as he is currently a cast member in a version of the gender-fluid musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie specially adapted for a teen cast in Kent.

Inspired by the 2011 British television documentary Jamie: Drag Queen at 16, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie follows the real-life story of a 16-year-old British schoolboy called Jamie Campbell who lives on a council estate in Sheffield. Jamie is seen overcoming prejudice and bullying to follow his dream of becoming a drag queen.

With his father, Martin, starring in The Office, The Hobbit and Fargo and his mother, Amanda Abbington, appearing in Sherlock and West End hit The Unfriend, it is probably no surprise that Joe is starting a career in show business.

Joe Freeman Parents

Joe Freeman is the son of Martin Freeman and Amanda Abbington. The former couple co-parent their two children – Joe and his sister Grace – following their split in 2016 after 16 years together.

Martin and Amanda previously worked together on Sherlock and the actress spoke in the past of how they kept their split secret six months before the news became public.

She told The Sunday Times magazine: ‘When we broke up nobody knew, we didn’t tell anybody except for a few key people because they had to know, because of the logistics of hotels and stuff.

‘It took six months for it to get out and a lot of that was while we were working on Sherlock… We were professional and we were going to get on and make a show and be civil to each other. We still get on really well, we still really both admire each other as actors… he’s a great guy, but we just couldn’t live with each other any more.’

Martin is currently dating actress Rachel Mariam. Amanda is engaged to world-renowned stunt performer Jonathan Goodwin.
