Possible new couple alert! ‘Downton Abbey’ may be ending, but the romance between co-stars Laura Carmichael and Michael Fox is apparently just getting started! After bonding on set for over a year, it seems that Lady Edith and her servant Andrew Parker are now an item.
Although they play characters in completely different cast systems on the period drama, Downton Abbey, Laura Carmichael, 29, and Michael Fox, 26, don’t mind mingling in real life! In fact, the pair is reportedly dating and have been “really enjoying each other’s company.”
“Laura and Michael struck up a great friendship during filming last year,” a source close to the couple told The Sun. “They started off as mates but quickly realized there was chemistry there and decided to start dating.” Aw! We love an off-screen romance between stars and this alleged couple is just way too adorable — especially because in the world of Downton Abbey, the two never would have even been allowed to date due to their life circumstances.
“It’s very early days still but they are really enjoying each other’s company,” the source also revealed. “The best part is that since the show ended they have had a lot more time to spend with each other.” So true! The couple even was spotted taking a romantic stroll together through London’s Hampstead Heath — how Downton Abbey of them!
We totally approve of this couple and we can’t wait to see where their romance goes. Downton Abbey came to an end in December 2015 after six wildly successful seasons, which is great timing for Laura and Michael as they can now focus on their budding love.
What do you think of this blossoming romance, HollywoodLifers? Are they a cute couple or what?
