Paige Turco has been away from the entertainment industry for a while now. But, her previous works in the entertainment industry have very much kept her trending.
The American actress is best known for her amazing performance as April O’Neil in 1991’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze and 1993’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III.
Additionally, she is known for her works in movies and TV shows such as Guiding Light, All My Children, The Pompatus of Love, The Agency, American Gothic, Party of Five, Dead Dog, Waltzing Anna, and Person of Interest.
Later in her career, she gained popularity for starring as Dr. Abigail Griffin / Dr. Simone Lightbourne VII in The CW’s post-apocalyptic Si-Fi drama show The 100. She played those roles from 2014 to 2020, over 85 episodes.
Is Paige Turco married now?
Turco is presently living her life as a single woman, or so it seems, considering her private life.
The 56-year-old actress lives a private life and doesn’t share much about her personal life with the outside world. Additionally, the only social media handles she uses is Twitter, where she is not always active.

Due to all those reasons, no reports of her being married to a husband in the present time have surfaced. The same could be said about her dating a boyfriend, as there is little to no information about that.
With the limited information, no conclusive thing could be said about Turco’s present relationship status. For now, the actress is allegedly single and isn’t married to a husband or dating a partner.
Paige Turco was formerly married to husband Jason O’Mara
Although Turco might not have a husband in the present time, she once had one while she was still married. She was in a marital relationship with Irish actor Jason O’Mara — known for his roles in In Justice, Life on Mars, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and more.
As per People, the formerly married couple first met each other in 2002 after O’Mara was cast as A. B. Stiles in the show The Agency — Turco was already part of the show since its initiation in 2001.
The two became friends, and their friendship eventually turned into a relationship. After dating for around nine months, they got engaged. Reports say that the actor proposed to the actress during their holiday in Jamaica.
They took the big step and shared the wedding vows on September 19, 2003. The married couple welcomed a son named David O’Mara in the next year of their marriage – in 2004.

In 2008, O’Mara told People that he wasn’t sure where he was heading when he was cast in The Agency, but he was up for anything. And after meeting his wife and welcoming a son with her, he realized that his family “is really what life is about.”
In 2012, the actor revealed to SheKnows that he was attracted to Turco because she was “strong and assertive.” He said, “I go for strong and assertive [women]. As my wife would attest, she knows what she likes, and I like a woman who knows what she wants.”
“We try to have romantic evenings at other points in the year, not just Valentine’s Day. I tend to get a gift and go out to dinner, but what we like to do is special things throughout the year,” he added.
However, it seems Turco and O’Mara’s togetherness wasn’t meant to last forever, as the actress filed for divorce in June 2017, ending almost 14 years of togetherness. At the time, TMZ reported that they had already separated in May 2017.
“Irreconcilable differences” were cited by Turco in the divorce papers. Additionally, it was reported that she wanted joint legal and physical custody of their teenage son. And it’s alleged that she also wanted spousal support.
As of now, it looks like the proceedings of their divorce was settled peacefully. No further reports about their divorce settlement or anything related to that have surfaced.
