Who is Simon Phan, the husband of actress Mallory Jansen? As Jansen returns to media attention with her role in Hallmark’s On the 12th Date of Christmas, fans are wondering about the actress’s personal life.

Mallory Jansen fans will be disappointed to hear she doesn’t seem to feature in Agents of SHIELD season seven, anticipated to be returning to Netflix this week on Friday. She was last seen in Season 4, notably as AIDA, and as Agnes Kitsworth (the person of whom AIDA is an AI imprint), as well as Madame Hydra. But she’s been staying busy!

Jansen’s newest release is the heart-warming seasonal film On the 12th Date of Christmas. The comedy follows the misadventures of two characters who are forced to choose between their careers and a relationship. 

Who is Mallory Jansen’s husband, Simon Phan?

In real life, Mallory Jansen has fortunately not had to make such a dramatic choice. She’s been married to her partner, Simon Phan, for a while, though the couple are notoriously private about their relationship.

Jasen and Phan tied the know in 2014, the year that she grabbed the headlines for Australian made-for-TV movie INXS: Never Tear Us Apart. She played Michael Hutchence’s ex-partner Helena Christensen. The film charted the personal stories behind the band’s meteoric rise to fame. 

Mallory Jansen and Simon Phan married that year in a dreamy-looking ceremony.

Jansen’s Instagram account is peppered with pictures of her and hubby Phan. Phan’s own Instagram account is private, though the profile photo is of the besotted couple.

The couple do seem to be art fans. They attended The Los Angeles debut exhibition of acclaimed Australian artist David Bromley a few years ago, which included colourful paintings of Marilyn Monroe. And being based in LA, the couple naturally seem to be Dodgers fans. 

Jansen’s many talents

Even if little is known about Phan, Jansen has been much less shy of the limelight. 

The Australian actress started out her career as a model, and switched to acting in 2012 in Howzat! Kerry Packer’s War, a cricketing drama about media mogul Packer’s influence on the game. She’s also starred in sitcom Baby Daddy, and also as Madalena in musical comedy Galavant. It’s a role well suited to Jansen, who loved singing growing up and was all about musicals while in school. 

It’s still Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. that has gained her the greatest following, though fans will no doubt enjoy her return to comedy!
