Dating, Wife, Daughter

Thewlis married Sara Sugarman, a screenwriter back in 1992. However, David does not see his marriage as a very wise decision.

Thewlis stated that he and Sara married each other in a whim, without properly thinking about anything else.

“The marriage was a little shaky from the start. We got married on a whim. I wasn’t drinking or smoking then. In fact, that was one of the problems. On the wedding day, I didn’t drink. I wish I had. It was a bit of a nightmare  –  not one of the happiest days of my life.”

He later revealed how his marriage was always shaky right from the start. In 1994, he and Sara Sugarman divorced.

Thewlis later began dating Kate Hardie, a fellow British actress but later split.

In 2001, Thewlis met Anna Friel, and the couple began dating. In 2005, Thewlis and Anna welcomed their first child together, a daughter, and named her Garcie Ellen Mary Friel.

Gracie is 19 years old.

David and Anna ended their relationship in 2010, without ever getting married.

A year after Thewlis and Anna split, Anna began dating Rhys Ifans, and Thewlis reunited with his French ex-girlfriend.

In 2017, Thewlis married with a mystery woman who is a French Artist. Outguess is that he married his longtime girlfriend, Emile, who is also a French by nationality.

Unfortunately, it’s not confirmed.

Thewlis and his new wife moved to Berkshire, where Anna and their daughter Gracie lived. The reason why David moved to Berkshire was to remain close to his daughter.

David Thewlis In Avatar

In early 2020, rumors began flying around that David will appear in “Avatar 2,” the first one that came out in 2009, directed by James Cameron.

However, in an interview, David revealed that he was not going to appear in “Avatar 2,” scheduled to come in theatres in December 2021.

However, ending the confusion, Thewlis revealed that he would appear in “Avatar 3,” “Avatar 4,” and “Avatar 5.

That is what all the talks are about as per David.

In “Avatar 3,” and it’s later installments, David appeared as Peylak, one of the Na’vi or, as Thewlis puts it, “Blue Things.”

The “Naked” star also expressed his excitement on what it will be like to work with all the CGI work.

Avatar 4 & 5 Are Not Sure

Yes, Avatar 4 and 5, as much exciting as they might sound, are not entirely sure.

In an interview, James Cameron revealed his plans about the remaining last two installments of one of the most awaited movies of all time.

Cameron revealed how there wouldn’t likely be “Avatar 4,” and “Avatar 5” if the second and third installment of the movie does not make money.

“Let’s face it; if Avatar 2 and 3 don’t make enough money, there’s not going to be a 4 and 5.”

– James Cameron

Fortunately, Thewlis has confirmed that the second and third installment of the movie is confirmed to come out in their scheduled dates.

The first Avatar movie that released in 2009 had a budget of $237 million + $9 million later for re-release.

It earned over $2.79 billion worldwide sales.

Avatar 2, however, has a budget that’s absolutely unbelievable.

The budget of “Avatar 2” is a whopping $1 billion.

Will the movie break record set by its predecessor? FYI, the only movie that has ever broken record of Avatar “1” is “Avenger: Endgame.”

While Avatar (2009) earned $2,790,439,000 the 2019 release Avenger: Endgame earned $2,797,800,564.

In other words, “Avenger: Endgame” earned $7.3 million more than “Avatar.”
