Roger and Rebecca share two sons together, William, who has followed his parent's footsteps by going into acting, and Thomas.

Not only has William been inspired by his mum and dad's career choice, he even appeared alongside them in ITV's Endeavour. In series seven of the period drama, Rebecca played the part of Mrs Hazel Radowicz, while William played her on-screen son, Gary, who is murdered in the episode.

Speaking about a scene in which Rebecca's character, Hazel, had to identity Gary's body in the episode, Roger opened up about his reaction to the tough scene. He told Masterpiece: "It's a strange double thing, because of course, I thought I'd be really upset.

"But we'd travelled in together, and I’d seen William in makeup and everything, so there's a part of you that knows—I knew he wasn’t dead. It’s a very strange kind of double reality.
