Cowles’ wife appears on the show The Good Wife. The two tied the knot way back in 1983. They have two mature daughters named Isabel and Lily. Before Cowley met Christine, he was the husband of actress Kathleen Dezina.
Several other stars and celebrities tweeted their condolences to Christine regarding her deceased husband Cowles. Alec Baldwin,who worked with Cowles in the 1996 film The Juror, said that he was a great gentlemanly figure. Alec furthermore said that he had worked on two films alongside Cowles.
'Deeply sorry to learn about Matthew Cowles, who I worked with on two films. A great gentleman...,' wrote the actor.
Cowles role in All My Children was a very negative one. He was shown as the head of a house of ill fame. And he engaged in drug dealing, abduction and even blew up a bridge.
Christine Baranski's husband was nominated twice for an Emmy for his realistic portrayal of evil personified. He also appeared time and again on Kojak, Miami Vice and Law & Order.
He also made an appearance in the comedy film Slap Shot opposite Paul Newman. And although he chose to stay away from too much publicity, Cowles was very effusive in his praise for his wife Christine. He simply adored her.
As for his wife, she is left with memories of the first time they met. May she find the strength to bear the loss of such a wonderful husband with fortitude and patience. Amen.
