Kate Winslet and Edward Abel Smith
Edward Abel Smith, who was formerly known as Ned Rocknroll, isn’t a Hollywood star like his wife Kate Winslet, but his job might be even cooler. He works as a head of marketing promotion and astronaut experience for the spaceflight company Virgin Galactic. While both have extremely cool jobs, it begs the question how did they meet. After all, Hollywood has nothing to do with spaceflight off the set.
It all started one sunny day in 2011, when the acclaimed actress was vacationing in businessman Richard Branson’s holiday estate in the Virgin Islands. Smith happens to be Branson’s nephew, and as luck would have it, he was enjoying his holiday in his uncle’s estate as well. However, the two didn’t meat by the poolside, but rather when a fire broke. Ned was the one who saved Kate and her children from the fire, helping them escape the burning house, and at this moment, he became her knight on shining armor.
