Who is Oscar Isaac's wife?
The Balibo actor is married to Danish director Elvira Lind, who, according to a few sources, is a director, producer and screenwriter.

Isaac and Lind crossed paths in 2012, a year before the actor rose to acclamation with Inside Llewyn Davis in 2013, so one might say Lind was Oscar's lucky charm. In an interview, while promoting the film, Isaac eluded to having met an unnamed documentary filmmaker while working on his character.
Elvira is a Sweden-born producer. She majored in documentary films from Cape Town's Varsity School of Media and Creative Arts. She has directed award-winning documentary songs. Lind directed the multiple awards winning feature Bobbi Jene in 2017 and released her first fiction short film, The Letter Room, in 2020.

Being the method actor that he is, Isaac would go on social gatherings and act like his character, Llewyn Davis. Dressed like a weirdo and acting like one too, Oscar recalls, "I was sitting in the corner just eating. I was the only person eating at the party," he adds, "and this girl, she's a documentary filmmaker, so obviously she spotted the weirdo and went directly to that one."

Although Lind and Isaac's alter ego, Davis, connected immediately, Isaac says she was a little disappointed after discovering Oscar was in character. The actor and producer pair is the ultimate low-key power couple. The couple continues to lead a low-profile married life and collaborate on projects, with Isaac in front of the lens and Lind behind. Isaac starred in Lind's project, Staircase Sessions.
