Age Gap of 30, Tom & Julie Tokashiki shares a deep relationship.
The first two unions of Tom Skerritt were troubled affairs. The actor’s first two marriages had ended in divorce, but this time around was different. And despite being 30 years younger than his present spouse, Julie Tokashiki, he seemed to have found contentment with her. His third marriage has lasted longer than his first two. What, then, was different about the third time? In a 2020 interview with Closer, Skerritt addressed his wife’s characteristics and what made her special.
Two Tom Skerritt Marriages That Failed
At the age of 21, the East of the Mountains actor had a child with young artist Charlotte R Shanks. Skerritt was wed to his first wife from 1957 to 1972. The final years of the actor’s marriage were challenging. He was having trouble taking care of their three kids because his wife had a mental illness. The actor’s eldest son, Colin Skerritt, is still estranged from him. For not being a present parent, Skerritt is held accountable.
Mr. Tom Skerritt
A well-known poet and his second-oldest child, Erin, expressed sympathy for her father and said she understood what he was going through. Because their mother was ill, he used to bring his kids to the set and try to take care of them, but he never had the time. So until his second marriage to Susan Ellen Aran, Skerritt was a single parent. The couple was married for 15 years, from 1977 to 1992. Colin Skerritt is the son of Skerritt and Susan. The couple established a bed and breakfast on Lopez Island in 1980 after purchasing a residence there. Susan and Skerritt’s union, on the other hand, was short-lived. They got a divorce in 1992. Their divorce’s root cause was never made public.
Tokashiki was the third wife Tom Skerritt married.
While filming Picket Fences, Top Gun: Maverick actor Tom Skerritt met his third wife, Tokashiki, a Fox studio executive. The Seattle Times claims that despite her initial reservations, his wife later discovered Skerritt to be a loving soulmate. In 1998, they got married. The Alien actor said of his wife, “she’s powerful, attractive,” in a subsequent interview.
I admire her and am in awe of who she is when I observe her. She’s a wonderful piece of art, he said.
At the age of 86, Skerritt and his wife adopted Emi, a daughter who is now 12 years old. He characterized Emi as a formidable teenager. The four other children of Skerritt have all found their callings. His son Andy is an expert in computers. Creative director and director of photography Matt.

The actor was 87 years old but had no plans to stop acting. Instead, he got his first leading role in East of the Mountains at the age of 88. Throughout his six-decade acting career, he has worked in just about every film genre. One could characterize Skerritt as a workaholic. He co-founded Triple Squirrels, a film studio, with his wife of 34 years, and runs it when he isn’t performing. The actor enjoys writing, painting, and tennis in his own time.
