The Los Angeles born actress is married to Dan Wilcox, a famous screenwriter also from Hollywood who wrote Newheart, FM, and M*A*S*H. They met after some time after Leslie’s divorce with her first husband and they have been living together ever since.
Easterbrook’s first marriage was with none other than the late actor Victor Holchak. The duo first met in 1978 and became friends. They started dating later on and love blossomed between them. After dating for a couple of months, they decided to get married and they exchanged vows on May 17, 1979.
