Ayda Field (born Ayda Sabahat Evecan, May 17, 1979) is an American film and television actress.

Since 2015, she has been a regular panellist on the television show Loose Women in the United Kingdom. During 2018, she featured on the judging panel of the British version of The X Factor, alongside her husband, singer Robbie Williams.

Early life[edit]

She was born in Los Angeles, California, to a Turkish father,[2] and an American mother, the movie producer Gwen Field.[3] Her father is Muslim and her mother is Jewish.[4]

She attended Harvard-Westlake School, from which she graduated in 1997.[5]

Television career[edit]

Field first became known on the NBC soap opera Days of Our Lives, but has subsequently specialised in comedy roles. She was a regular on Blue Collar TV, guest starred in the sitcom Eve and appeared as Jeannie Whatley on NBC's Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. On the Fox sitcom Back to You, she played Montana Diaz Herrera (aka Sally Lerner), News 9's weather woman. She appeared in ten episodes of Season One.

Field joined the cast of a sitcom pilot titled Making It Legal (playing a lawyer named "Elise") but ABC did not pick up the pilot.[6] In June 2008, she was cast in the female lead on ABC's untitled David Kohan/Max Mutchnick comedy pilot, replacing Sarah Lafleur.

Field made her UK TV debut in the final series of Fresh Meat in 2016. In that year, she appeared in the ITV/Netflix series Paranoid. Also in 2016, Field joined ITV's Loose Women as a guest panellist.

In 2018, she joined The X Factor UK judging panel alongside her husband Robbie Williams, show creator Simon Cowell and One Direction's Louis Tomlinson where she replaced Sharon Osbourne.[7]

Personal life[edit]

Field is married to English singer-songwriter Robbie Williams.[8] They began dating in July 2006 and have lived together since 2009.[9] In October 2009, Williams proposed to Field during a live interview on Sydney radio station 2Day FM, but later said that the proposal was a joke and that they were not engaged.[10] It was subsequently confirmed that they had become engaged over Christmas of that year. She and Williams were married at his home in Mulholland Estates, Beverly Hills on August 7, 2010.[11][12][13]

On March 30, 2012, Williams and Field announced that they were expecting their first child together, a girl.[14] In September 2012, their daughter was born.[15] They also have a son, born in October 2014.
