Meet Alexis Knief – Timothy Olyphant’s wife of 30 years

by Eniola Baruwa

There is a reason most Hollywood marriages burn out as quickly as the nuptial knots are tied. That moment in a boxing match where everyone but the fighter knows it’s over – the marriages of Hollywood stars often have this feel. Of course, the scrutiny the glamorous lifestyles Hollywood’s finest attract are more often than not, over the top. 

Though celebrated for their success, the media and watching masses are also very critical of their shortcomings as humans leaving them with little or no space for growth.  The media is said to be the most powerful entity on earth because they have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that is power. Because they control the minds of the masses. This makes Alexis Knief’s choice to stay away from the spotlight very reasonable and understandable. 

Who Is Alexis Knief? 

Alexis Knief was born on the 1st of January, 1970 to American parents. Her star sign is Capricorn. Information about her place of birth and her parents’ names are unknown as she has successfully managed to keep a sizable portion of her life out of the media. It is known that she met Timothy Olyphant, who would go on to be her husband, during her highschool days. 

Alexis Knief is an alumnus of University of Southern Carolina. Along with most aspects of her life, she has managed to keep her career a secret (she’s like the CIA of married women, for real!).  

Alexis Knief’s Marriage To Timothy Olyphant 

In July 1991, Alexis Knief and Timothy Olyphant got married. Alexis Knief was 23 at the time of marriage. Her husband stated about the marriage that theirs was a young love and they got married after deciding to grow together. 

Her husband Timothy Olyphant is a famous movie star who has starred in major Hollywood blockbusters and television shows. Timothy Olyphant’s career kicked off in an Off-broadway theatre where he won the Theatre World Award for his inspirational performance in The Monogamist. His fame grew after he starred in HBO’s Deadwood, appearing as Sheriff Seth Bullock. The show was aired for three seasons. 

The proficient actor hasn’t looked back, appearing on screen in films like Scream 2, The Girl Next Door, Hitman, Live Free or Die Hard to name but a few. He was often cast as the antagonist/villain in most of these films. 

Alexis Knief’s Children and Later Life

Timothy Olyphant and Alexis Knief’s first child was born eight years after their marriage. On 20th June 1999 the couple welcomed their first child Grace Katherine Olyphant into the world. 

Henry Olyphant, their first son, was born in 2001. The couple’s third child Vivian Olyphant was born two years later in 2003. The family of five live in Westwood, Los Angeles. 

Some years back Timothy Olyphant was in the news as a result of some misunderstanding on the path of fans and the media. The father of three was seen wearing his wedding ring on his right hand instead of the traditional left hand way which sparked rumours of an imminent divorce. He did well to quell fears and refute such claims by stating he wore his wedding band on his right rather than on the left out of habit. 

It is fair to say (or write) that Alexis Knief is famous only as a result of her husband’s status as a successful movie star. Virtually nothing is known as to Alexis Knief’s career or her current line of work (told you, CIA). Although the mother of three is now 50, she has done well to keep her slim figure and stay in shape over the years. She is 5 feet 8 inches tall. 

Despite doing her best to stay out of the spotlight, these are the few details about Alexis Knief, Timothy Olyphant’s wife of almost three decades (Wow!). Quite impressive, really. Of course like any other couple, they must have had their ups and downs but kudos to them for scaling through.
