Castle’s Stana Katic Marries Longtime Boyfriend Kris Brkljac
As if Castle’s current season couldn’t get any better — Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) and Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion) finally tied the knot— Stana herself said her “I do’s” to longtime love Kris Brkljac. That’s right, this lucky lady is married both on TV and in real life!
According to the 37-year-old star’s rep (via Us Weekly), Stana and Kris made their love official at a “private family monastery on the Dalmatian Coast in Croatia.” While we mostly know Stana by her on-screen ship name, Caskett, the actress’s rep reveals that Stana and her off-screen love Kris — “a business efficiency consultant” — “have been together for many years.” How sweet!
Stana hasn’t made any mention of her nuptials on social media yet, and seeing as how she and her beau are extremely private, don’t expect these two to shower the world with their love (although we wish they would!).
As for Stana’s role on the hit ABC procedural drama, she’s putting fans in a tizzy, what with her and Nathan’s contracts ending after Season 7. In fact, she previously dished to TV Line that should her character’s plotline come to a fruitful end, then she’ll step away quietly.
“If the character is complete, if there is nowhere else to go creatively, then I think it’s better to stop when you’re on top, because I admire the way that they did that with The Wire, you know? Tell a great story and then go home and move onto something else. Don’t milk it ‘just because,’” she explains.
“So for me it’s about art over finance, and as long as we’re creating something that is compelling and that has somewhere to go, then we’re good to go. And when we find that we’re not, when we don’t have anywhere else to go, then it’s time for everyone to pack up and move onto the next thing. But I don’t know where it’s going to end.”
Stana has yet to renew her contract, but she’s been busy filming a new film, The Tourist, which is slated to hit theaters later this year.
Congratulations to Stana and Kris!
