Is "Never Have I Ever"'s Darren Barnet Single or Taken?
Darren Barnet returns as teenage heartthrob Paxton Hall-Yoshida in the third season of Netflix's beloved series "Never Have I Ever," which hits the streamer on Aug. 12. In the series, Barnet plays the popular yet complex Paxton, the primary love interest of the main character of the rom-com show, Devi Vishwakumar.
Outside of "Never Have I Ever," Barnet is just as desirable as his show character and has garnered plenty of loving attention from fans for his role on the show, as well as his part in Netflix's 2021 film "Love Hard." So much love, in fact, that the rate of thirsty DMs he receives daily has skyrocketed. "Every time I refresh it, there's like 100 or 200 more," he told Elle in May 2020. "There's a lot that are just, 'Hey, the show has really helped me through a hard time.' Or, 'Thank you for making me laugh.' And I love those and I try to reach out and respond to those. And then there's also the ones that are like, 'Take your shirt off.' And I'm like, 'No.'"
So who has managed to steal Barnet's heart? Following the release of "Love Hard," the actor had a brief relationship with his "Love Hard" costar Mikaela Hoover, though it appears that Barnet may be back on the market again.
