The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - INSIDER -

Perth model Liv Pol­lock has put her stud­ies on hold to travel the world and fo­cus on her bud­ding re­la­tion­ship with Stranger Things ac­tor Dacre Mont­gomery. The pair are cur­rently based in At­lanta where Mont­gomery is shoot­ing the third sea­son of the hit Amer­i­can se­ries which streams on Net­flix.

“Perth be­ing a small place, we knew each other through mu­tual con­tacts from work,” Pol­lock told Con­fi­den­tial. “Then through so­cial me­dia started talk­ing, de­vel­op­ing our re­la­tion­ship and it grew from there.”

Pol­lock, 19, who has been mod­el­ling for a year, is rep­re­sented by Vivien’s, but has also been study­ing ar­chi­tec­ture at the Univer­sity of Western Aus­tralia. She moved to the US last week.

“I’m hav­ing a gap year from ar­chi­tec­ture to ex­plore and travel as I be­lieve life ex­pe­ri­ences are an equally pow­er­ful means of learn­ing,” she said.

“Mod­el­ling for me has been in­cred­i­ble. It has al­lowed me to meet fan­tas­tic peo­ple and taken me trav­el­ling. I will con­tinue to pur­sue this ca­reer path cou­pled with fin­ish­ing my ar­chi­tec­ture de de­gree. Health and fit­ness is ano an­other in­ter­est and pas­sion of min mine, stay­ing ac­tive and healthy

is of huge im­por­tance to me. P Prac­tis­ing yoga once a day as well a as car­dio-based ex­er­cises is s some­thing I al­ways fit into my d day-to-day sched­ule.”

Mont­gomery, 23, ap­peared as th the Red Ranger in Power Rangers bef be­fore land­ing his break­through role i in Stranger Things play­ing Billy Ha Har­grove along­side Milly Bobby Brow Brown and Wi­nona Ry­der. He is one of Aus­tralia’s big stars on the rise in Hol­ly­wood but his fame does not im­pact their re­la­tion­ship, Pol­lock said.

“It doesn’t change any­thing, our re­la­tion­ship has been built on our sim­i­lar val­ues and an ad­ven­tur­ous na­ture. Just be­cause his ca­reer places him within the pub­lic eye, doesn’t and would never be a fac­tor that we would let in­flu­ence our re­la­tion­ship, nor should it,” she said.

“We are both also re­ally pas­sion­ate about de­sign — I’m study­ing ar­chi­tec­ture and Dacre has stud­ied in­te­rior de­sign so we were drawn to each other through our mu­tual love of de­sign.”

Model Liv Pol­lock has moved to the US to be with boyfriend, Stranger Things star Dacre Mont­gomery (in­sets).
