Ruth Weil is the ex-spouse of Frank Langella, an American stage and film actor. Frank Langella, the 84-year-old Oscar nominee, has been dismissed from Netflix’s limited series ‘The Fall Of The House Of Usher.’ Langella was set to portray grandfather Roderick Usher in the eight-episode series created by Mike Flanagan and based on the Edgar Allan Poe short story.
Netflix launched an investigation after Langella was accused of sexual misconduct, including making inappropriate comments to a female co-star on set. Langella’s on-set behavior was deemed unacceptable, and his role in the Edgar Allan Poe series will reportedly be recast. The series will film sequences without his character for the remainder of the week.
According to Deadline, the event occurred after the investigation’s result was announced just a day prior, on Wednesday, April 13, 2022. Langella has acted in a number of films and television programs, including ‘Kidding,’ ‘The Americans,’ and ‘Frost/Nixon,’ for which he received an Academy Award nomination.
The Hollywood veteran spoke up about his love life in his 2012 memoir, ‘Dropped Names: Famous Men and Women As I Knew Them.’ For five years, the actor was romantically related to Whoopi Goldberg after working together on the 1994 film “Eddie.”
By the time they finished filming ‘Eddie,’ Langella had already divorced his wife of eighteen years. According to Goldberg, her relationship with her new lover had been going on for a long time – at least in her thoughts – as she mentioned in one of her interviews.
From June 14, 1977, through their divorce in 1996, Langella was married to Ruth Weil. Frank III and Sarah are their two children.
Ruth Weil is in her late70s.
The estimated Net Worth of Ruth Weil is around $1 Million USD.
