LONDON (AP) _ Actor Kenneth Branagh has married for the second time, taking Lindsay Brunnock as his bride in a small private ceremony.

The wedding was held last weekend, said his publicist, Lawrence Atkinson.

Branagh, 42, met Brunnock, an art director, while working on the television drama ``Shackleton.''

``Kenneth and Lindsay really wanted to keep the big day private,'' Atkinson told the Daily Mail newspaper.

``Kenneth hates the whole showbiz lifestyle of constant parties and just wants to keep this relationship as intimate as possible.''

The Oscar-nominated star of ``Hamlet'' and ``Henry V'' was divorced from his first wife, actress Emma Thompson, in 1996.
