In a heartwarming revelation, actors Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Talulah Riley have taken their relationship to the next level, announcing their engagement on July 27. The Westworld star shared the delightful news via a tweet, expressing his happiness after two years of dating Talulah.
Their love story began to flourish on the set of the 2022 miniseries “Pistol,” where they found a connection that ultimately led them to this significant milestone. The engagement announcement was made on X, the social media platform that recently underwent a rebranding from Twitter, an interesting twist considering it was purchased for a staggering $44 billion by Talulah’s ex-husband, Elon Musk, last October. Elon himself responded to the news with warm wishes and a heart emoji, showcasing the amicable bond he maintains with Talulah despite their two marriages that took place between 2010 and 2016.
In a 2016 interview with The Daily Mail, Talulah candidly discussed her belief in marriage as a social construct while emphasizing her enduring friendship with Elon. Despite their double divorce, they remain close, caring for each other and cherishing their eight years together.
Meanwhile, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, renowned for his role as the lovestruck son in “Love Actually,” was previously linked to model Gzi Wisdom. However, it was on the set of “Pistol,” where he and Talulah co-starred as punk rock couple Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood, that their personal love story began to flourish. The two kept their romance under wraps until they made their public debut as a couple at the 2022 British Academy Film Awards.
Talulah, now a celebrated actress known for her work in “Pride & Prejudice,” explained in an interview with The Sunday Times last year that their romance took some time to develop, having initially been good friends. The revelation of their engagement marks a beautiful chapter in their journey of love and has fans eagerly awaiting their future together as they prepare to embark on a new life as fiancés.
