Alexandra Gerrard (née Curran; born 23 September 1982) is an English model, fashion columnist for the Daily Mirror, and the wife of former Liverpool and England captain Steven Gerrard. She was described as a leading “WAG” of the England national football team, along with women such as Victoria Beckham and Coleen Rooney. In 2007, the Times referred to her, then Steven Gerrard’s fiancée, as an “über-WAG”. On 29 October 2007, she launched her own fragrance, named “Alex”, which was one of the top sellers of 2007.
A former nail technician, Curran was born in Aintree, Merseyside and raised in Maghull, and attended Maghull High School. Curran and Steven Gerrard have been a couple since 2002. Prior to her relationship with Gerrard, Curran was dating businessman Tony Richardson, while Gerrard was dating Jennifer Ellison. At some point in 2002, Curran and Ellison switched lovers; The Guardian wrote, “who stole whom off whom is still the subject of some debate and perhaps Ellison’s autobiography”.
On 11 December 2007, while husband Steven Gerrard was away playing with Liverpool, the couple’s home was burgled while she and another female resident were inside. Curran was confronted by four masked robbers who were reportedly there for a £10,000 watch that Curran had bought for Gerrard for Christmas. On the same day she had mentioned the watch in Closer magazine. Gerrard was the sixth Liverpool player to be burgled while away playing football.
Curran was revealed as the model for the new 2013 Lipsy VIP Collection.
On 8 August 2006, Curran was arrested on suspicion of assault by Merseyside Police following a fight at the Shangri-La restaurant in Liverpool city centre. A teenage girl, also from Maghull, was struck in the face with a glass bottle during the altercation. Curran was released on bail until November 2006, and the charges were later dropped.
Curran was also involved in disagreement with singer Jamelia, who was previously engaged to footballer Darren Byfield. Jamelia described footballer wives as “leeches”, and insulted Curran specifically: “God forbid if Alex Curran split up with Steve Gerrard. Who would she be then?” Curran responded in an interview with OK! magazine, “She’ll be glad to know I don’t know her boyfriend’s name but Steven (Gerrard) thinks he’s lower than a non-league player.”

Actress Catherine Kinsella, 2015
Kinsella played young Éponine in 1992 in the first off-West End production of Les Misérables at the Palace Theatre in Manchester, and again in 1993 for final six weeks before the first UK tour began. She was chosen from over 600 auditioness. Philip Quast played Javert, Jeff Leyton played Jean Valjean.
Kinsella has worked extensively in classical theatre. Her first role as an adult was in Northern Broadsides‘ 2002 production of William Shakespeare‘s Macbeth directed by the company’s artistic director Barrie Rutter OBE. This led to a long and successful working relationship with the company, appearing in many of their productions including in The Tempest (as Ariel), The School for Scandal (Maria), an international tour of China in The Tempest and in the 100th anniversary of the Harold Brighouse play, The Game (as Elsie Whitworth). She also played the lead as Charlotte Brontë in Blake Morrison‘s We Are Three Sisters, taken from the Anton Chekhov play Three Sisters and Rosaline in Love’s Labour’s Lost. The Times said, “Catherine Kinsella’s flinty flirty Rosaline makes this a rom-com worth believing in.” She played Catherine in Arthur Miller‘s A View from the Bridge to great critical acclaim for director Mark Babych at the Octagon Theatre, Bolton. The Guardian wrote, “As Eddie’s gamine niece, Catherine Kinsella perfectly captures the confusion of a young woman whose sexuality has caught her unawares.” She went on to work with Babych in another Miller play, The Crucible, and as Abigail and Jessica in The Merchant of Venice. In 2013, she was directed by Sir Jonathan Miller in a stage revival of the Githa Sowerby play, Rutherford and Son. The play was a critical success and saw Kinsella winning Best Actress in a Visiting Production at the Manchester Evening News Theatre Awards against Michele Dotrice and Siân Phillips in the same category. The Evening Standard said that her performance was “superb”, and that her character “combines emotional intelligence with good business sense just in the nick of time”. This was her first win but forth nomination for the awards. She had previously received nominations as Best Actress in a Supporting Role for Jessica in The Merchant of Venice (2008), Best Actress in a Supporting role for Brenda-Marie in Martha Josie and the Chinese Elvis (2009) and Best Actress in a Supporting Role for Catherine in Memory of Water (2011). She returned to work again to great success with Miller in 2015 in his “revelatory” production of King Lear in the role of Cordelia.
