Hunter Doohan has opened up about his marriage to Hollywood producer Fielder Jewett.
The American actor recently shot to superstardom with his role as barista Tyler Galpin in Netflix’s coming-of-age, supernatural mystery series Wednesday, which stars Jenna Ortega as the Addams Family’s iconic morbid teen.
During a recent appearance on Ira Madison III and Louis Virtel’s podcast Keep It!, Doohan discussed his role on the series, his love for RuPaul’s Drag Race and how he met his husband.
“He’s kind of a big everything dork. He’s always reading and watching stuff. We’ll go to trivia nights and I just kind of sit there and smile and watch him win the game for us,” he said of Jewett, before revealing they met on Tinder.
“We met in like 2015 and then got engaged during the pandemic. The pandemic was great for me because I’d been off shooting Your Honor for six months in New Orleans,” Doohan continued to explain.
“So I came back and all of a sudden we got to spend time together. We had so many friends that either broke up or got married during the pandemic or had a baby.”
Doohan and Jewett married in June earlier this year.
Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston, Doohan’s co-star in Your Honor, officiated the ceremony.
Following their nuptials, Doohan told his Instagram followers that it was “absolutely the best day of our lives” before thanking his loved ones for making it “so special”.

On the podcast, Doohan also revealed that he would binge-watch RuPaul’s Drag Race in-between filming for Wednesday.
“In Romania, I got into Drag Race for the first time,” he said. “That was a life-saving thing just to like binge 14 seasons of Drag Race in between acting like a monster on set.”
Upon release, Wednesday was a monumental success for Netflix, becoming the second-most watched English-language series of all time for the streamer within three weeks of release.
The show also received two nominations at the Golden Globe Awards: Best Television Series – Musical Comedy and Best Actress for Ortega, whose performance as the titular character was met with universal praise.
Following Wednesday as she attempts to solve a murder mystery at her new school Nevermore Academy, the series also stars Gwendoline Christie, Riki Lindhome, Jamie McShane, Percy Hynes White, Emma Myers, Joy Sunday, Georgie Farmer, Naomi J. Ogawa, Christina Ricci and Moosa Mostafa.
Catherine Zeta-Jones and Luis Guzmán appear in supporting roles as Morticia and Gomez Adams.
The first season of Wednesday is now available to stream on Netflix.
