Charlie Heaton and his Stranger Things co-star, Natalia Dyer have kept a low-key dating profile since they were first spotted together in 2017.
The on-screen couple have kept their real-life relationship as low-key as possible over the years and Charlie, who plays Jonathon Byers in the Netflix show, has revealed why.
In an interview with GQ, the 26-year-old said: “We didn't really know what the relationship was," adding that they didn't want to "mess up" what was such a huge job for each of them individually.
Meanwhile, the show's creators The Duffer Brothers agreed: “That first audition, we did a chemistry read with [Heaton and] Natalia and sparks were flying.”
Speculation that the pair were an item first circulated back in September 2016, despite neither of them confirming it.
In December 2017, they made their debut as an official couple, holding hands on the red carpet for the Fashion Awards, in London.
They have made appearances together at star-studded events since and snapped loved-up pics with each other on Instagram.
However, the duo still try to stay out of the limelight, where possible.
Natalia previously spoke about their relationship to Refinery29, explaining what it was like to work on-screen with your partner.
She said: "It’s an interesting thing to work with somebody who you go home with. It’s always really fun.
"We’re really comfortable with each other, so we can play and feel more free, and we can talk about it before."
