Polly Ritter, Paul Ritter’s Wife, and Their Children
Paul’s personal life was something of a mystery, but the actor was married and had two sons. There is little information about his wife Polly, but she was at Paul’s side when he died at home on April 5, 2021.
Paul and Polly Ritter had two sons, Frank and Noah. Paul was best known for playing the dad of Jonny and Adam Goodman in the six seasons of Friday Night Dinner and he was close with his on-screen family. In a 2014 interview with Roger Crow, Ritter said about filming Friday Night Dinner: “What I treasure is that it sort of feels like a family; there’s a kernel of something real there.
“We are all cocooned together in a suburban location for weeks on end, so ‘the family who plays together stay together’.”
Paul Ritter’s Death & Cause
Ritter died of a brain tumour on 5 April 2021, in his home surrounded by his family “It is with great sadness we can confirm that Paul Ritter passed away last night,” his agent said. “He died peacefully at home with his wife Polly and sons Frank and Noah by his side. He was 54 and had been suffering from a brain tumour.
“Paul was an exceptionally talented actor playing an enormous variety of roles on stage and screen with extraordinary skill. He was fiercely intelligent, kind, and very funny. We will miss him greatly.” Ritter is due to appear in a 10th anniversary retrospective of Friday Night Dinner. He will appear alongside his on-screen family Tamsin Greig, Simon Bird, and Tom Rosenthal – which will air on Channel 4 later in 2021.
Paul will be remembered for his roles in The Bill, Vera, and Chernobyl and as Guy Haines in the 007 movie Quantum Of Solace.
