It’s said behind every great man there’s an even better woman. For Harvey Specter on Suits that woman was typically Donna Paulsen (Sarah Rafferty). However, for the real-life man behind the character, Gabriel Macht, that’s his wife and fellow actress, Jacinda Barrett. 

Although Harvey may have had a way with the ladies on all nine seasons of Suits, the truth is that Macht was happily married throughout the show’s entire run and has spent most of his time since the show aired its final episode in 2019 stepping away from acting and raising the two children they share together. But has his wife done the same? Is she the same powerhouse star that he is? Who is she, even? 

Well, you’re in luck, Barrett has had just as storied a career as her Suits star husband and we’ve got all the details curious fans need to know about her.

Who is Jacinda Barrett?

Barrett is an Australian-born model and actress who got her big break in TV when she was cast in the 1995 season of MTV’s The Real World, which took place in London. She used the fame she got from that to fully transition into acting where she booked guest roles in TV shows like Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, NightMan, Guys Like Us, and Wind on Water.  

Fans of Suits may remember her from her guest role in three episodes as Zoe Lawford, an old flame of Specter’s with whom he tries to rekindle a relationship before life gets in the way and she’s forced to leave town. While Barrett is an accomplished actress, playing someone who is in love with the guy being played by her actual adoring husband probably wasn’t a big stretch. 

Since then, she’s been best known for her role as Diana Rayburn in Bloodline as well as Samantha Blackwell in the 2021 movie Hide and Seek. Like her husband, she doesn't take on many jobs but seems passionate about the ones she does accept.

Who Else Has Jacinda Barrett Dated?

When she got her start in showbusiness, she was a reality star on MTV. At that same time, comedian Chris Hardwick was working as the host of a show on the network and the two sparked a years-long romance.

TheWrap reports they were briefly engaged but ultimately the relationship didn’t work out. That was in the 1990s. By the early 2000s, she’d met the man who would go on to become the love of her life.

When did Jacinda Barrett Marry Gabriel Macht?

The Australian actress tied the knot with Macht in 2004, well before he landed his role as Harvey Specter on Suits

In 2014, E! News reported that they welcomed their second child, a son named Luca. They previously had a daughter six years prior named Satine. Since Suits ended (for now at least), Macht has been a family man spending most of his time at home and outside the limelight of acting and doting on his gorgeous partner.
