Early life

Victoria Spader with James Spader

On June 1, 1959, Victoria Spader was born in Los Angeles, California, to Lee and Julian Kheel. She was born to an erudite family. Her name before marriage was Victoria Elizabeth Kheel.

Victoria is Gemini. A Gemini woman is adaptable, intelligent, a social butterfly, and full of ideas; however, the sun sign is two-faced, inconsistent, and indecisive.

The name Victoria is the female version of the name Victor. It is of Latin origin. It is the name of the goddess of victory, also the Greek goddess Nike.

Victoria Spader has studied at The Lear School. She had an interest in interior design even as a teenager.


Victoria joined a yoga studio where James worked as a yoga teacher. So it was pretty unexpected that their first meeting would be one of the most beautiful meets in their life.

At the time of their first meeting, James was working multiple jobs. He served drinks at the bar, cared for the horses in a stable, and taught yoga.

In 2002, people started speculating James Spader was having extramarital affairs with his co-star, Leslie Stefanson, when he frequently was captured in photographs by paparazzi. And in 2003, the speculation turned out to be true when Spader filed a divorce from Victoria, which was quite heartbreaking.

Soon after their divorce, James Spader tied the knot with his then-beau Leslie Stefanson in 2004 and brought their son into the world in 2008, Nathanael Spader.

The pair caught each other’s attention during the film Alien Hunter (2003) shooting. After staying in courtship for almost a year, they eventually took the plunge and married each other.

Have you watched 2015’s runaway success film Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron and The Avengers? Do you know the voice behind the legendary Ultron? Yes, you guessed it right, James Spader was the one who breathed life on the character Ultron. Similarly, he has portrayed countless motion pictures of diverse genres.

Let me tell you the secret, Victoria Spader. Her career as a set designer went through the roof after working in Sex, Lies and Videotapes and Jack’s Back.


Victoria has always bottled up her existence. She lives a highly low-profile lifestyle. The only scandal, if you will, was her husband cheating on him and divorcing her for Leslie.

During her separation from her former husband, a few embarrassments, clashes, and bones of contention might have occurred. However, these facts limit only to our speculations since they are separated for the betterment of one another. It seems like both of them are supportive of each other’s decisions.
