Amanda Abbington is a British actress whose fame comes more from her common law husband, Martin Freeman. Despite his success as an actor in The Hobbit franchise Freeman is viewed as an individual by the bankruptcy court, leaving Abbington’s financial situation her sole responsibility.
Quiet On The Set
UK bankruptcy laws recognize individuals rather than couples when it comes to financial insolvency. Abbington’s reportedly filed for bankruptcy protection over the hardship brought about from a delinquent tax bill amounting to the American equivalent of $180,000. Even though Abbington and her husband share a home life that is far from insolvent, the UK bankruptcy court is handling the bankruptcy filing for Abbington alone.
Abbington recently began filming for a new TV show Mr. Selfridge. The bankruptcy case is expected to be completed in a matter of months, leaving Abbington free to bask in what could be a lucrative career in the wake of Mr. Selfridge.
