In 1957, Glenda met Roy Hodges, a fellow actor in the repertory theatre company she was in, and they began a relationship. The couple was married on 2 August 1958 at St Marylebone Register Office in London. In 1969, their son, Daniel, was born; Glenda was six months pregnant when filming on Women in Love was completed.
Glenda’s marriage was running into difficulties by the early 1970s, and in 1975, she began an affair with Andy Phillips, the lighting director for a production of Hedda Gabler which she was starring in. Roy sued Glenda for divorce on the grounds of her adultery with Phillips in November that year, and the couple was divorced in 1976.
