Nick Jonas has been caught kissing and now it looks like he is ready to get rid of his single status!

Hollywood’s romance radar has been buzzing over the news that Nick Jonas, 18, has been more than just friends with his Les Miserables co-star Samantha Barks, 20. The pair haven’t been shy to hold hands in public and steal kisses when they think no one is looking, but with their romance heating up, we wanted to know everything about the girl who has Nick’s heart!

Turns out, the British beauty is a force to be reckoned with. Samantha has been dancing since the age of three and was acting by the time she was four. She’s triple threat as professional singer who, in 2007, released her first album, “Looking In Your Eyes.”

Nick has a thing for brunettes so we’re not surprised he’s attracted to Samantha. Her dark hair, eyes and fair complexion reminds a lot of his former flame, Selena Gomez, 18. The similarities don’t stop there. Selena, who stars on Disney’s hit show, Wizards of Waverly Place, can count Sam as a member of the mouse ear wearing family. In 2011, Samantha will make her Disney debut as the voice of Zoe on the animated show Groove High.

Although Nick has stayed tight lipped on the subject, only to tell the press “I keep that stuff to myself.” Samantha has opened up about new beau and why she’s so smitten!

Nick is such a wonderful person. We definitely keep in contact,” she said, coyly.

With all the Jonas Brothers wrapped up in relationships, we can’t wait to see them triple date!
