What is ‘Will Trent’ all about?

Will Trent is a police procedural drama series that airs on ABC. The second season premiered in February of 2024.

The hit show is an adaptation of the Will Trent novels by Karin Slaughter. The show, like the books, follows the titular character as he works for the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

Trent is dyslexic and grew up as a foster child. He is incredibly observant, and his neurodivergent approach has led to him solving numerous cases — despite some personal and professional entanglements.

Who plays the titular ‘Will Trent’ character?

44-year-old Ramon Rodriguez plays Wilbur “Will” Trent. He brings a lot of charm and rizz to the GBI specialist.

“I adore him,” Ramon said of his character in an interview with People. “I think he’s just a very complicated human being that is doing his best to navigate the world.”

Ramon continued: “There’s all of this trauma that this guy was bearing and caring. Another thing that I loved was his resilience, despite everything he’d been through.”

Is Ramon Rodriguez married? Who is his wife?

Despite his busy career and current lead role, Ramon Rodriguez has managed to keep his private life incredibly private. That’s very smart — even if it leads fans guessing.

At present, there is no evidence that Ramon Rodriguez has a wife. Either he is single, or managing to keep his relationship entirely private.

If Ramon is in a relationship, or soon finds himself in one, then it might take Will Trent-like detective skills to uncover the romance.
