Kris Brkljac is best known as the longtime boyfriend, and now the husband, of Canada-born American actress Stana Katic who is well-recognized for appearing in the 2008 James Bond film 'Quantum Of Solace' and for playing Kate Beckett on the ABC television romantic crime series 'Castle' (2009–2016).

Rise to Stardom
  • Always seeking adventure and a challenge, Kris Brkljac decided to move from Sydney to New York during his early youth with a background in Communication Media Law. However, according to his LinkedIn profile, which is no more accessible other than a snapshot of it captured by CrunchBase, he went through a difficult time soon after moving to the United Sates.
  • At the age of 21, he was homeless and lived on the streets of New York City before achieving success within five years. The way he moved from the streets to selling his own company within a short period of time is nothing less than an exciting rags-to-riches story. He likes to describe his life as a movie and feels that "It’s all about who is directing your movie and my movie was about being successful without any excuses." Interestingly, his private life has also been nothing short of a movie as he soon became involved in a romantic relationship with Hollywood actress Stana Katic.
  • Kris Brkljac is a very private person and does not have any social media profile, and while Stana has them, she hardly ever posted anything about their relationship, keeping the affair secret. The couple was captured together only once before they finally got engaged and tied the knot. Despite having minimal footprints on the internet, Kris became a target of tabloids following their marriage in April 2015.
