WHETHER THESE PARTNERSHIPS ARE INSPIRED BY THE FREEDOM OF PLAYING SOMEONE ELSE OR BY THEIR DRAMATIC STORYLINES, THE WORLD OF TV DRAMA HAS HAD ITS FAIR SHARE OF PERFECT MATCHES.
The world of TV drama has had its fair share of perfect matches – remember these?
JAMES STEWART & SARAH ROBERTS
Home and Away hotties, SARAH ROBERTS and JAMES STEWART, definitely found more than good chemistry in the heart of Summer Bay. The on- and off-screen couple, who’ve been dating since August 2017, looked the perfect pair in a recent Instagram snap posted by Sarah. The caption “A Sunday Kind of Love” not only confirmed their blossoming relationship but also gave fans the heart flutter they’d been waiting for. Revealing how she felt about filming love scenes with James, Sarah said, “There’s real chemistry, so it’s easy – I don’t even have to act”.
HARLEY BONNER & ARIEL KAPLAN
When neighbours become good friends, sometimes they even become lovers. These two former Ramsay Street residents found love in Erinsborough, although they happened to be playing brother and sister! While both actors left the soap at the same time to pursue other adventures, it seems they also found new partners. HARLEY is now seeing model NATALIE ROSER, and ARIEL is with her new partner DEAN COOPER.
Kylie minogue & Jason donovan
It’s been nearly 30 years since Kylie and Jason captured each other’s hearts, as well as the heart of Australia, but their romance just wasn’t meant to be. The former Neighbours co-stars and lovers first started dating as teenagers. They later hit a rough patch in 1989 when Kylie left Jason for INXS front man michael hutchence. Jason, 49, has admitted many times since that he still gets upset thinking about the break up.
sarah Wiseman & craig hall
Not only are these co-stars from A Place to Call Home in love – they’re also married in real life! sarah made the move to Australia from New Zealand with hubby craig hall before the two were cast in the series at the same time. For this happy couple, long days on set and early call times are anything but a chore.
JESSICA MARAIS & JAMES STEWART (AGAIN)
It seems JAMES has made a habit of falling in love at work! When he met co-star Jessica Marais, 33, on the set of Packed to the Rafters in 2009, the sparks flew and the two instantly hit it off. James played the role of Jake Barton, while Jess played the part of Rachel Rafter. Although the relationship blossomed and the two went on to get engaged in 2010 and had a daughter scout in 2012, the couple ultimately broke up in 2015.
chris Milligan & Jenna rosenow
EHarmony should have a chat to the good folk at Neighbours, because clearly they know how to produce some super-cute couples! chris and Jenna both starred on the soap for a number of years before waving goodbye to pursue acting roles in the US. Even though their stint on Neighbours didn’t last, the couples relationship sure did! They’ve now been together for five years and show no signs of slowing down.
SAMARA weaving & axle whitehead
Talk about a good-looking couple! Sure, the relationship didn’t last, but at least we have the gorgeous memories to keep us warm at night. The former Home and Away cast mates hooked up in 2012 and only dated for a few months, but it was great while it lasted. SAMARA wasn’t the first co-star alex has fallen for. In 2010, he had a short-lived romance with lisa Gormley.
