45 year old 'SHERLOCK' actor Martin Freeman is splitting up with his partner of 15 years, Amanda Abbington, with whom he has two children. Martin and Amanda had been together since 2001, when they first met on a set of their film 'Men Only'. They also worked in a couple of other films before acting in popular TV series 'SHERLOCK'. Coincidentally, Martin and Amanda play husband and wife, and associates of the crime detective Sherlock Holmes played by Benedict Cumberbatch in the TV show. Martin did not mentioned the reason for their split or how long it has been since they separated. Amanda commented on the split saying the two will remain 'best-friends' even after the split. "Martin and I remain best friends and love each other, and it was entirely amicable. There was no hostility, really, we just said that we couldn't live together anymore, so we put everything in place, he moved out to a flat in north London, I stayed at home. It is sad and it is upsetting, because you think you're going to be with someone forever, but you either do that or you break up, and we both came to the decision that splitting was best for us. We've been really lucky to make it such a clean break, especially for the kids." Abbington said.
