Angela Bassett

Angela Bassett has played LAPD patrol sergeant Athena Grant-Nash for four seasons and counting, and we couldn't imagine the series without her. In real life, the 65-year-old actress has been married to her husband, Courtney B. Vance, for over two decades. The pair met in 1980 and later tied the knot in 1997.

Courtney and Angela share 18-year-old twins, Bronwyn and Slater Vance. The couple are set to become empty nesters this year as they've toured 26 colleges with their twins.

Angela said of their kids: "They both play the piano and rap and play guitar, so they have a little musical interest that I drill into them, that I insist upon!"

Peter Krause

Playing Athena's husband, Robert "Bobby" Nash, is actor Peter Krause who is also known for his roles in The Catch and Parenthood. He was previously in a relationship with Gilmore Girls star Lauren Graham before they split back in 2021. They first met in 1995 when they appeared alongside each other in a sitcom and struck up a romance on the set of the first season of Parenthood. Peter has yet to reveal if he is currently dating anyone.  

Prior to that, Peter was with actress Christine King, with whom he shares a son named Roman, born in 2001. Roman has remained out of the spotlight for most of his life.

Fan favorite Evan 'Buck' Buckley is played by British actor Oliver Stark. The 32-year-old actor met Marvel actress Hannah Gottesman on Instagram and made things official after Oliver relocated from London to LA. Opening up about their relationship, he told People: "I came here for about three weeks and then never went home. We met at the airport and moved in together." 

Oliver Stark has no known kids.


Aisha Hinds

Aisha Hinds, who plays paramedic Henrietta Wilson on the series, tied the knot with her partner, Silky Valentine back in May 2022 in a gorgeous Grenada ceremony. Talking to Essence Magazine, she said of their special engagement: "That definitely was a day of unexpected joy. He completely surprised me. He did it on my birthday. Because of 2020, I had no plans to have a plan. I was pulling back the plans."
