Richard Schiff and Sheila Kelley
Dr. Aaron Glassman, Debbie Wexler’s husband on The Good Doctor, is played by actor Richard Schiff. Kelley and Schiff aren’t just husband and wife on TV, they’re also married in real life. Schiff says he enjoys working with his wife.
“I love it,” he told E! News. “She’s such a good actress and she’s so alive on camera. I love working with her. She’s great. And then we get to have dinner together back at the hotel, so it’s awesome.”
What’s happening with Dr. Glassman and Debbie?
The Good Doctor Season 4 shows Glassman and Debbie having some relationship trouble. The COVID-19 pandemic has adjusted everyone’s plans, and Glassman decides to stay home to reduce his chances of becoming infected. Unfortunately, being home all day has caused conflict between him and Debbie. She wants to spend more time together, but Glassman wants his space.
At one point, Debbie interrupts Glassman’s video call so she can ask him if he wants nuts in his meal. Her constant interruptions and overall chipper attitude irritate Glassman, and he not so subtly sends her the message that he would rather be left alone. Debbie gets the message loud and clear, and she moves out of their bedroom and into a guest bedroom. There’s definitely trouble in paradise.
