Everyone Phoebe Dynevor Has Dated, From Pete Davidson to Her Possible Current Love
Much like her "Bridgerton" character in Regency London, Phoebe Dynevor made quite a splash in the Hollywood dating pool as she rose to fame along with the Netflix hit. In particular, she generated a lot of buzz for briefly dating Pete Davidson in 2021, though in a Sept. 26 interview with Elle, she said that she was very surprised at how much excitement the relationship created.
"It just goes back to being naïve — I didn't think anyone would care," she said of the attention their romance brought her. "I was just being a young woman and dating and somehow that provokes a conversation. There were lots of hard lessons I had to learn through basically just having a personal life. You realize, 'Oh, I can't live my life in the way that I used to. I have to keep my cards slightly closer to my chest.' There was a time, for example, when I'd post anything on my Instagram, and now I'm very, very careful about what I put out into the world."
Describing their six-month relationship as "very surreal," Dynevor also said that it exposed her to the paparazzi for the first time. "This whole world that I was opened up to was really intimidating. Having men outside your house with cameras is super scary when you live on your own," she said. Still, Dynevor learned some lessons from the experience. ". . . I had to learn to let things go and let it wash over my head instead of the normal reaction, which is to be like, 'But that's not true, and that didn't happen,'" she added. "You have to let it go and focus on the work."
Unlike Daphne Bridgerton, Dynevor has dated more than one person in her life — though because you may still be curious, dear reader, no, Dynevor and her "Bridgerton" costar Regé-Jean Page never had an offscreen romance. Below, learn more about the actor's dating history.
2014: Simon Merrill
During her days on the British drama TV series "The Village" in 2014, Dynevor was connected to recruitment executive Simon Merrill. In 2017, she told the Daily Express about a trip they'd taken to Southeast Asia. "Last year my boyfriend and I went around Thailand, Indonesia, and Vietnam. It was amazing. He's half Thai," she said in reference to Merrill. "And we went to his family's village. His grandma, aunt, and uncle are still there, and it was a really incredible experience." It's unclear as to when the couple split but it was definitely prior to spring 2017, which is when Dynevor's next relationship was made public.
2017: Sean Teale
Dynevor first appeared on British actor Sean Teale's Instagram in April 2017. It seems as though their coupling was short-lived, though, as Dynevor's Instagram is scrubbed of evidence and Teale's last photo with Dynevor was posted in August 2017.
2021: Pete Davidson
Speculation about Dynevor and Pete Davidson's romance first began brewing in March 2021, and they were photographed together numerous times over the next few months. That April, Davidson appeared to hint at their relationship in a very Pete Davidson way: on a Zoom call with a group of college students. While participating in a virtual Q&A with students at Marquette University, Davidson wryly admitted that "I'm with my celebrity crush" after one student asked who his celeb crush was.
The pair made their first public appearance at Wimbledon that July, but according to E! News, they called it quits a month later. "They had fun, but it wasn't sustainable being so far apart," a source informed the publication. "It was great while it lasted, but they both agreed it was best to move on."
2023: Cameron Fuller
Dynevor was first spotted with fellow actor Cameron Fuller in March, and the pair were seen looking affectionate on the streets of London in April. They were also photographed cozying up at Wimbledon in July, per Elle.
