While they may be happily married in real life, Daniel and Rachel portray exactly the opposite on their new Broadway show, titled ‘Betrayal.’ The new show is already getting raving reviews, and the previews have just begun!

Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz are one of Hollywood’s hottest and most loved couples — but now they’re hitting the Broadway stages and not playing so lovey-dovey with each other.

Rachel Weisz & Daniel Craig In ‘Betrayal’

The Broadway show that everyone’s talking about begins today, although the official opening night is not until October 27. Only running for 14 weeks, the show is in high demand — and it must be because of the intense story line and brilliant actors.

Daniel, 45, plays Robert, the narrator of the story who is looking back at a time when his wife Emma (played by Rachel, 43) was having an affair with his best friend, Jerry — portrayed by Rafe Spall.

While Daniel is a Broadway vet, this is Rachel’s big debut.

The show, directed by 10-time Tony winner Mike Nichols, is a the third remake of Betrayal — which first premiered in 1980.

Daniel Craig Admits In Interview: ‘Marriage Is Hard’

Daniel talked to Vulture about the battles of being a working couple, and the exciting time of starring on Broadway together:

We’re separate entities professionally, and we’re happy to stay separate entities, and we’re not a professional couple. We just don’t want to be seen in that way: a couple. Because our relationship is nobody’s business but ours. We’re going on stage together, and we know we’re exposing ourselves, but we’re professionally exposing ourselves, which is what we do. What we do as actors. We’ll go to work, and we’ll do it, and we’ll go home. We may hit some problems, and there may be friction. Who knows? It could happen.

Additionally, when it comes to their relationship being exposed, Daniel says it’s tough. He also doesn’t really understand the interest in other people’s personal lives.

“Marriage is hard. Everybody has to work at it,” he admitted. “And to have it exposed publicly doesn’t do it any favors. Personally I’m not interested in other people’s relationships. And it’s usually hearsay. It’s usually kind of wrong. Just to bring it back: Betrayal is about how what goes on in people’s marriages is far more complicated.”
