Their work was described by the New York Times as “beautifully moving” and “almost flawless”. It said they should never get better awards, no matter how hard they work all their lives.

The relationship between Christian Camargo and Julia Rylance
Camargo met his wife, Rylance, in 1997 while working on a film in London. He was 26 at the time and she was just 18. He was in love with Rylance for three days, but they remained friends. They planned to meet in March 2008, when she was in New York. They immediately started dating. Camargo was madly in love with her. He proposed to her twice before she accepted the third time.
They chose to marry in November 2008, on the last night of Cameron’s production All My Sons. They were joined by his co-stars, John Lithgow and Dianne Wiest, who sang a wedding song to them. Rylance saw herself getting married in front of hundreds of people, with a large carriage that transported her to the big party as a youngster. But her small marriage to the town hall made her happiest with Camargo. In 2010, she told the New Yorker, “I know marriage is more important than wedding.” Rylance moved to America after his marriage. In 2016, they got a puppy named Garth, moved to Joshua Tree, California, and had a home in London. Unfortunately they seem to be separated. Camargo has found a new business partner.
