America Ferrera and Ryan Piers Williams
Although Ryan Piers Williams is an actor, writer and director, somehow he’s most well-known for being America Ferrera’s husband. It was Williams’ writing ambitions that allowed the couple to meet in the first place: back in 2007, the young writer cast the Ferrera for the lead role in a short film he was making, called Muertas. The talented Williams was the writer and producer of the film, as well as the star opposite Ferrera.
This was the beginning of a beautiful friendship, and later a relationship. It was the first of many collaborations, as Ferrera appeared in several other of his productions later on. While the actress received great exposure from her roles in The sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and her lead role in ABC’s Ugly Betty, Williams has stayed in her shadow, but he never resented it. On the contrary – he is her biggest supporter.
