Netflix's Stranger Things became an instant hit when it premiered on the streaming service the summer of 2016. While fans all have different favorite characters, between the badass Eleven, courageous Will, and dad Steve, everyone must admit the cutest relationship might be between Nancy and Jonathan. Although the pair didn't start out in the best place--with Nancy dating Steve--they eventually came together in Season 2 and admitted their feelings for one another.
And what makes them even more ship-able is that the actors behind the pair, Natalia Dyer and Charlie Heaton, are dating in real life.
The two actors sparked dating rumors back in 2016 after they started posting frequently of one another on social media. They eventually made their red carpet debut as a couple in Dec. 2017, and have been each other's plus ones to plenty of events since. In a recent interview with VMan, Heaton adorably gushed about his girlfriend/co-star.
When asked if filming is easier having Dyer around, the 25-year-old actor admitted, "Yeah, because there are times when you do get stressed. So to go home with someone you work with, and say, 'I think they hate me...' They'll say, 'No they don't.'"
"You can break the walls down with your partner," Heaton went on. "Because we work in the same industry and have had similar trajectories, we've gone through it together. Sharing that does bring you closer. They understand something that maybe no one else would. You go into high-pressure situations together but you can share those insecurities or whatever they are. The great, happy times, too... Really f**king sweet!"
So cute! We're excited to see more of Heaton and Dyer when Stranger Things returns for Season 3 on July 4.
