Early Life, Education, and Career Beginnings
Very little information is known about Josh’s early life, including his childhood, his family, and his path towards a martial arts career.

The two started their relationship there and have been together since. After completing his degree, he continued with his venture into martial arts, however, information about his kind of work has not been shared.

Martial artists have been known to be hired to help choreograph, train, and double for actors in action films.
Wife – Sarah Wayne Callies
Throughout her youth, Sarah developed a strong interest in acting, and participated in various school plays while in high school. After matriculating, she enrolled into Dartmouth College located in Hanover, New Hampshire, where she continued to be involved in theatre while completing her education. After graduating, she continued her education at the National Theatre Conservatory, and completed a Master of Fine Arts degree in 2002.
The following year, she moved to New York to pursue a career in acting, appearing in several television shows such as “Queens Supreme”. She had her first starring role was in the series “Tarzan” on The WB, in which she played Detective Jane Porter. In 2003, she made guest appearances in “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and “NUMB3RS”, before gaining a starring role in “Prison Break” which helped her reach prominence; she played the role of Sara Tancredi for the first two seasons but then her character killed off, much to fans’ dismay, but she returned during the fourth season as the producers found a way to bring her character back to life.
Sarah on The Walking Dead and Other Projects
After the end of the first run of “Prison Break” in 2008, her next big role was in 2010, cast in the role of Lori Grimes in the television series “The Walking Dead”, based on the comic book series of the same name. During her time with the show, it became one of the highest rated in cable channel’s history. She stayed with the series until the third season, when her character was killed-off in a similar manner to that of the comics.
Producers approached her and stated that there was a possibility that her character might not be killed, however, she urged producers to follow the death arc of her character much like the comics. Her stay with the show was enough to push her career towards other big projects. She appeared in various films afterwards, including “The Celestine Prophecy” and “Whisper”. She also did the screenplay for the film “Elena’s Serenade”, and one of her latest projects is a return to television in a lead role in the show “Colony”.
Marriage, Family, and Social Media
After being in a relationship for some time, Winterhalt and Callies decided to get married in 2002. Not many details have been shared about their marriage. Five years later, a publicist of hers confirmed that the couple was expecting a child. In 2013, it was also reported that the couple had a second child, this time through adoption.
One of the reasons there’s very little information about his past and present endeavors is due to the lack of any strong online presence. He does not have accounts on any major social media websites, including Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. He also rarely appears with his wife in public, and they prefer to keep information about their relationship private. His wife on the other hand is very active on social media, having accounts on Instagram and Facebook, on which she mainly posts to promote some of her recent and upcoming projects. She also posts a few personal photos and videos to interact with fans. Her husband rarely makes an appearance in any of her posts. Her Facebook also functions in a similar manner to that of her Instagram account, save for a few odd posts that can only be found on that profile.
