Minnie Driver has revealed a dark family secret that her mother Gaynor was actually her father’s mistress – and he had a secret wife and family living elsewhere, while taking part in the tv show Who Do You Think You Are?
The 43-year-old discovered her father had another wife and children at age 12.
And similarly, for many years his wife Annie and her daughter Susan knew nothing of Gaynor, Minnie or her elder sister Kate.
“My parents met in 1962 and they were together for 13 years. They broke up when I was six and during that entire time he was married to someone else and had another family.
“I didn’t know until I was about 12. My dad lived a very split life. We just did not talk about where he came from.
“He spoke very succinctly about his mum and his dad but I never met my grandparents or saw even a photograph of them together – I always wondered what they looked like.”
