Sunrise Coigney is a very beautiful American actress whom many of us have come to know through her roles in films such as Campfire Stories (2001) and Line of Fire (2003), while others have come to know her as the wife of an American actor, filmmaker, and social activist Mark Ruffalo.
Sunrise Coigney Wiki/Bio
Sunrise Coigney was born on September 17, 1972, in San Francisco, California, as Christina Sunrise Coigney. She is a woman who is easy to appreciate. Not much is known about the beautiful actress and her upbringing except that her father was Joel Coigney.
As an actress, Sunrise has not appeared in too many films. She has starred in some of them, including Line of Fire, Born to Run, In the Cut, Campfire Stories, and 100 Centre Street.
Since she hasn’t acted in many films, the actress has rather made a name for herself and has moved on to other things without appearing in any films since 2003 when she appeared in Line of Fire.
Sunrise Coigney’s Wife and Family
Sunrise Coigney is, as already mentioned, married to an actor whom most of us now like and respect: Mark Ruffalo. Before the two of them got married, it turned out that the beautiful woman had once turned down the actor before she later decided to go out with him.
As the actor said in an interview, it was his wife who brought him up as a real actor. “I must have auditioned 800 times without getting apart. I was a bartender at the Chateau Marmont [in L.A.], and I saw Johnny Depp and Nic Cage hanging around, very successful, while I hardly made a living,” the great actor confessed. He went on to say that as a young actor in his 20s he wanted to quit more than four times.
The only thing that brought him back and kept him alive was his wife. “I lived in a dump and didn’t even have a driver’s license or a credit card. She thought I was a wreck, but she believed in me and kept encouraging me,” he revealed.
Although it is not known exactly how long the actor and the brunette beauty dated, they decided in 2000 to form an alliance as man and wife.
Sunrise, also known as Sunrise Ruffalo, has three children from their marriage together with her husband. The first, Keen, was born a year after Sunrise and Ruffalo married in 2001, while the second, Bella Noche, was born in 2005. The couple’s last child, Odette, was born in 2007.
In 2008 the family was hit by tragedy when Mark Ruffalo’s brother Scott, who worked as a hairdresser, was killed. The younger Ruffalo was shot in the back of the head and two people, Shaha Mishaal Adham, and her boyfriend were linked to the murder case as persons of interest. After being declared guilty, they both surrendered to the police a week later but were later released without charges.
Four years after Scott’s death in 2012, Shaha Mishaal Adham, the daughter of a wealthy Saudi businessman, was found dead in her home, a move that was postponed pending toxicology results, with some sources claiming that drugs were suspected as the cause of the death.
Sunrise and her husband lived in Los Angeles, but Mark Ruffalo later confessed that he and Sunrise, and indeed the whole family, did not enjoy their stay there and that they had therefore decided to move to New York where they now live and enjoy life on their farm. It was said that their move was a result of other things, including the death of Scott.
