Though Lisa Sheridan’s career is firmly rooted in TV, the actress took her first foray into the world of movies with 2000’s Beat, where she appeared alongside Courtney Love, Kiefer Sutherland, and Norman Reedus. That film also marks the first time she worked with Ron Livingston, the Office Space actor who was fresh off his iconic role opposite Jennifer Aniston. Thought it’s long thought sparks flew between the pair on-set, these two may have become acquainted a little earlier.
In an interview with People, Livingston admitted that the pair first “struck up a conversation” at a 1997 screening of The English Patient. Livingston was hesitant to call her, but once the flick won an Oscar, he thought it’d make an excellent excuse to give her a ring — the telephone kind (the diamond would come later.) “We fell in love in our first hour and a half together. Yeah, it was that easy,” he told People.
But as Livingston settled into his role on the hit HBO series Sex and the City, things started to fall apart both on-screen and off. Jack Berger wasn’t the right man for Carrie Bradshaw, and he also wasn’t the right man for Sheridan. According to the Mirror, the pair broke up in 2003, sometime after she was spotted on his arm during the Little Black Book premiere.
Sheridan never married. Livingston wed actress Rosemarie DeWitt in 2009.
