In a startling revelation that is yet to hit the headlines of major tabloids, The Boys actor Antony Starr has been harboring a hidden chapter in his personal life. Contrary to widespread speculation that he has never walked down the aisle, we’ve uncovered he was previously married.

Here at PopTvCulture, we’re bringing this bombshell to light for the first time. So, who is the mystery woman who was once Antony’s wife?

From Co-Stars to Couple The Private Marriage of Antony

Hollywood heartthrob Antony has long kept a colossal secret under wraps: he was married. And who is the mystery woman? None other than Emma Lahana, the New Zealand actress better known for her roles in Power Rangers Dino Thunder and Haven.

Despite the lack of detailed information on their marriage, Antony and Emma likely crossed paths on the set of the New Zealand TV drama Shortland Street in the early 2000s. Both starred in the series during overlapping periods—Starr as Stratford Wilson from 2000 to 2002, and Emma in her debut role as Erin Kingston from 2000 to 2001.

Over the years, Antony has skillfully kept this chapter of his life out of the spotlight. However, it was discovered that he filed for divorce from Lahana on September 16, 2016, at the Los Angeles County Superior Court, according to records from UniCourt.

Interestingly, two of Starr’s female co-stars from Banshee also remain close to his ex-spouse Lahana, frequently interacting with her on social media. Yet, neither appears to maintain a public connection with Starr nor do they tag him in any Banshee-related posts.

Starr and Ex-Wife Lahana Both Have New Partners

After parting ways, Starr and Lahana have embarked on new romantic journeys. Antony has found love with Sandra Vergara, famously known as the sister of Sofia Vergara.

On the other side, Emma is currently in a relationship with Peter Hammarstedt, a notable figure in marine conservation. Hammarstedt, the Director of Campaigns for Sea Shepherd and Chairman of Sea Shepherd Australia, has dedicated more than two decades to the sea. He currently serves as a captain of the vessel Bob Barker.

The public got their first glimpse into their life together in July 2019, when Lahana posted a photo from the premiere of the documentary Sea of Shadows. She seized this moment to shed light on the documentary’s critical environmental message, encouraging her followers to support Sea Shepherd’s essential efforts.

“This is such an important film that I urge you all to support and see in theaters,” she advocated on Instagram. “They are real-life superheroes who are doing amazing work for our planet. For the oceans.”

Adding to her life’s new developments, Emma shared another joyous update in April 2024—her pregnancy. With a playful nod to her new journey, she announced on Instagram, “from tutu to twotwo,” delighting her followers with the news of her expecting.
