Couple In Recovery, 'St. Elsewhere's' Ed Begley Jr. And Rachelle Carson-Begley, Promote Green Lifestyle

St. Elsewhere actor Ed Begley Jr. and his wife, Rachelle Carson, are no ordinary couple. Former addicts, they are both in recovery for more than 30 years!


The two actors are known for roles in countless movies and TV shows. They have also recorded their own live series and reality podcasts, like Begleyesque and Living with Ed. But what else is peculiar about them?


The couple is known for promoting green lifestyle. Instead if living in Beverly Hills, they own a little house in Studio City. And everything about this home just screams ‘energy efficiency’.


Begley has been living green since 1970. He started small – by buying an electric car and planting fruit trees. Nowadays, the actor has rain barrels for water, solar panels for lighting, and bicycles for generating energy.


On Oprah show, Rachelle revealed that her husband had always been strict about certain things. As she said:

He really wouldn't get in a car. He wouldn't get on a plane. He wouldn't throw anything away.

Surely, there are cases when Ed flies. But he always tries to make up for all the energy he’s used.


The couple shares a daughter, Hayden. And the 18-year-old doesn’t know how to live differently. Green lifestyle has become an inseparable part of her life. So, even when she comes to her friend, she is amazed to see that people throw bottles and cans in the trash.


But Hayden also follows in her parents’ footsteps in terms of showbiz. She has been writing songs since she was 5. The teenager enjoys writing, playing, and performing her own material!

Who knows, maybe she will become the star like her father some day.
