The Spooks star told the Radio Times: 'Me and my husband, because we both lost a parent young, we thought, after we had a child, we ought to get married, in case one of us dies, so that the legalities are clear.

'Which is not the most romantic reason to get married but is probably the only thing that would have got me to sign a piece of paper.

'I'm not a great advocate of marriage in real life.'

  BBC Marriage viewers left 'disappointed' by Sean Bean and Nicola Walker drama Many viewers took to Twitter saying the sound was "abysmal" and the pace was "slow"It gives a glimpse into their relationship as they navigate the ups and downs of their 30 year marriage. The opening episode started with the pair's journey home from holiday and they had an argument over a jacket potato, Birmingham Live reports.

He married for the fourth time, to actress Georgina Sutcliffe at Marylebone Register Office in February 2008 but their marriage lasted for just two years.

In the BBC drama which airs on Sunday August 14, Walker and Bean look at the pitfalls of a long relationship between characters Emma and Ian - who are bonded by a terrible event that they seldom refer to.

Walked mused: 'Their daughter keeps saying, 'We need to talk', and they just won't. Because most people don't.

'We don't carry the past blazing around in the present because we couldn't get up and make our breakfast if it was in the forefront of our mind all the time. Emma can't talk about this thing that has happened because it's too big.

'When she lets even a squeak out of it, it's followed by a complete emotional breakdown. It's embedded in their relationship, but they can't talk about it.'

BBC Marriage viewers are all saying the same thing about the Nicola Walker and Sean Bean drama

  BBC Marriage viewers are all saying the same thing about the Nicola Walker and Sean Bean drama Overall, the highly-anticipated BBC drama was criticised by viewers but the acting was praisedThe drama follows married couple Ian (Sean Bean) and Emma (Nicola Walker) as they negotiate the ups and downs of their 30-year marriage. Despite promising humour and moving moments many viewers found the drama "boring" and said they were "bored to tears".

Remarking on the loss of her parent which spurred her on to marry her partner of 27 years, Nicola added: 'I feel that about grief. When I lost my mum – a long time ago now – there was a month or six-week period when I felt that someone had pulled back the curtain in The Wizard of Oz and I really felt I saw the world for what it was: a very frightening place.

'Then, slowly, the curtain comes across again because you can't live at the sharp end of grief. And that's what Ian and Emma have had to achieve.'

During the filming, Nicola found that an old piece of advice was particularly helpful.

After being told by director Ivo van Hove to 'do what you would do in your kitchen' when acting, Nicola found herself filming many scenes for Marriage in a kitchen.

But this naturalistic setting came with notoriously meticulous director Stefan Golazewski.

Nicola recounted: 'Stefan had to really calm me down early on, because he said he did a lot of takes and suspected I wasn't used to that.

'In all the telly I've done, if you're not hitting the scene within three takes, you know you're doing it wrong and wasting time.

She added: 'With Stefan, 12, 13, 14, 16 takes is not unusual.'

Remarking on her most famous role in Spooks, she revealed that the BBC drama is still what she is recognised for, saying: 'In terms of the public, Spooks was the one, and still is, as it's streamed a lot. But the Spooks audience is so witty.

'The first time I realised, I was in my local supermarket and someone sidled up and said, 'The condor has landed; the geese fly tonight', and wandered off down frozen foods. It was never just a run-of-the-mill 'I love the show'.'

'After Marriage, will people come up to her at the fresh fruit and tell her how awful their spouse is? 'I hope they do.' She's sure, though, there won't be a sequel called Divorce. 'Ian and Emma would never split up. That's the point.'
