Thorsten Kaye met his wife, Susan Haskell while appearing on One Life to Live, where they played each other’s love interests.

Thorsten and Susan are blessed with two beautiful daughters. Their first daughter, McKenna, was born in 2003, and their second, Marlowe, was born in 2007.

Kaye confirmed the rumors of his marriage while answering fan questions for Soap Opera Digest.

He acknowledged how people were constantly referring to Susan as his “life partner.” He affirmed the speculations.

“Susan is my wife. We were actually married,” he emphasized. “I’m not a church guy, but we did a thing on the beach a while back.”

He further explained why the news of his wedding hadn’t broken out into the public sphere. He confessed: “I don’t talk about it because I’m just a private guy.”

Meet Thorsten’s Wife, Susan Haskell

Susan was born on June 10, in Toronto, Canada. The actress started her modeling career at the age of 16 and was cast in several commercials while still in high school.

She attended Tufts University in Boston and earned a Bachelor of Science in Biopsychology there.

While at college, she enlisted in a drama course. Even though she didn’t immensely enjoy the class, she was captivated and decided to pursue a career in acting.

Susan continued to accept modeling assignments, which often took her to faraway places such as Italy, Germany, France, Australia, and Japan, besides the somewhat conventional national commercials.

The actress was also fluent in French. She also studied ballet for eight years. She then spent six years studying flute and piano at Toronto’s Royal Conservatory of Music.

Her first professional appearance was in an episode of the popular TV show My Secret Identity. Shortly after, she featured in the film Strictly Business.

Then she went on to ABC-TV’s series One Life to Live and won Emmy Awards for Outstanding Supporting Actress.
