Natalia Dyer and Charlie Heaton could be one of Hollywood’s most beloved co-star couples right now. We love seeing them on screen, and we love seeing their real-life relationship. And in the spirit of a walk down memory lane, let’s take a little look at how both began!
Here’s our complete relationship reel- both on-screen and real.
The Stranger Things Saga
The actors presumably first met on the set of Stranger Things, Netflix’s super hit sci-fi thriller which premiered in 2016. Dyer plays Nancy Wheeler, the studious girl learning to let loose on the show. And Heaton has the role Jonathan Byers, a social outcast at school and aspiring photographer.
Season 1 saw Nancy in a relationship with another guy, but she and Jonathan had chemistry, and a sweet, sweet friendship. Both characters ended up caught in dangerous times together and shared some intense scenes together, including blowtorching the mind-flayer.
That season ended with Nancy getting Jonathan a little surprise Christmas present before going off to cuddle with her boyfriend, Steve.
The two only grew closer in Season 2 with Nancy making Jonathan come to parties and let loose. And towards the end, they shared a passionate kiss in a beautiful moment when Nancy realised her feelings for him after breaking up with Steve.
The Off-Set Moments
Co-stars work closely on set all the time, but Dyer and Heaton did begin to spend a great load of time together off-set. First, in September 2016, Heaton posted this photo of them on vacation.
They even attended the 74th Golden Globe Awards together in 2017 with perfect pictures that had fans swooning. And December 2017 saw them holding hands on the red carpet at the swanky Fashion Awards in London.
Dyer even spoke to Refinery29 before Stranger Things Season 3 came out about working with her real-life boyfriend on-screen. “It’s an interesting thing to work with somebody who you go home with,” the 22-year-old actress said. “It’s always really fun. We’re really comfortable with each other,” she added.
It looks like these two can balance an on-screen and off-screen romance perfectly! And that’s one of the reasons why they could be America’s dream couple!
