Personal Life – Husband, Boyfriend
Since 2007 Deborah Ann Woll has been in a relationship with her long-time comedian friend Edward E.J. Scott. The two met when she was 23 and fresh out of university. She browsed through a dating site and found his profile interesting. Edward thought she was pretty and nerdy, so he convinced her to date him.
The comedian has an unusual general disease called choroideremia. It’s a disease that causes its victims, mostly men, to slowly go blind. His maternal grandfather had the disease and once fell down a drain.
Edward did not hide his condition from Deborah, and it was his honesty that caught her attention in the first place. His sight is currently compared to looking through a paper towel tube. He was diagnosed at the age of 27 and was declared legally blind. When asked what he would miss if he became completely blind, Edward said television, comics, and movies.
Although many people assume that the couple is married, they have not tied the knot yet – they are only in a long-term relationship. Deborah Ann Woll has said that she is not exactly the type for a wedding and that they may not get married, but she is bound for life and wants to have children.
For the actress, her favorite part about Edward is his ghost. He once ran a 12-meter marathon to raise research funds for his disease. Deborah, on the other hand, uses her celebrity status to raise awareness of Edward’s illness and raise funds to find a cure for Edward.
She has referred to his strength as what helped her overcome her autoimmune disease, celiac disease – a disease that she was diagnosed with from childhood and which leads to gluten intolerance.
