Matt Smith Girlfriend: The House of The Dragon Star’s Relationship Status and History!
Only a few former Doctor Who stars have found commercial success in the United States, and Matt Smith is one of them. He has recently been in several critically acclaimed films, such as Edgar Wright’s Last Night in Soho, His House, and the internet sensation Morbius.
The release of House of the Dragon, his most ambitious work to date and a precursor to “Game of Thrones,” is imminent. The HBO fantasy drama, however, had “too many sex scenes,” as he put it.
After his recent split with the beautiful British actress Lily James, the 39-year-old is said to be seeing someone new. Many fans of The Crown have wondered about the actor’s private life, so we’ve gathered what we know about him here.
On October 28, 1982, in Northampton Matt Smith was born to parents Lynne and David Smith. In 2004, his sister, the dancer Laura Jayne, was featured in the music video for Eric Prydz’s “Call on Me,” which went viral. Northampton School for Boys had a student named John Smith.
Smith was up around football; his grandpa played for Notts County, and he himself represented Northampton Town, Nottingham Forest, and Leicester City, finally leading the latter as youth team captain. After sustaining a serious back injury that ultimately led to spondylolysis, he was forced to end his football career.
Smith’s cousin and the school’s theatrical teacher, Leigh Killick, forced him to participate in multiple productions against his will. After initially declining the role twice, Leigh finally succeeded in having him play the tenth juror in a performance of Twelve Angry Men.
Despite having registered for the event, he rebuffed Leigh’s invitation to attend the drama festival because he was concerned that acting would damage his status as a football star. Finally, after much persuasion from Leigh, he joined the National Youth Theatre of London.
When Smith was done with high school, he enrolled at the University of East Anglia to study drama and creative writing. He graduated in 2005. Thomas Becket (Murder at the Cathedral) and Bassoon (The Master and Margarita) are only two of the roles he’s played with the National Youth Theatre.
In the wake of the latter’s success, which secured him an agent and his first professional projects (Fresh Kills and On the Shore of the Wide World), he worked out a deal with his school that would allow him to graduate without taking any classes in his final year.
Matt Smith’s Rumored Girlfriend Is the Sister of Millie Brady
Smith has not commented on his romantic status at the present time, but rumors have it that he is seeing a woman by the name of Caroline Brady. Unlike Smith, Brady reportedly works in business as the vice president of fundamental equity impact at BlackRock and is not an actor.
Millie Brady, whose acting credits include The Last Kingdom, The Queen’s Gambit, and Surface, has a sister named Caroline Brady. Smith acted opposite Millie Brady in the 2016 film Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, so it’s possible that they met on the set. That would mean the actress probably set them up.
If Smith and Brady are dating, they have apparently opted to keep their relationship under wraps, so we won’t be hearing much more about them.
Who Has Matt Smith Dated?
Some of Smith’s exes have been in the spotlight more than the purported relationship with Brady. The actress Lily James, who recently played Pamela Anderson in the Hulu series Pam & Tommy, was the subject of his most publicized romance. Surprisingly, she also shared screen time with Smith and Brady in the film Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
Us Weekly claimed that Smith and James started dating in 2014, broke up in 2019, then got back together in 2020. They appeared in multiple photographs together and even shared red carpet-appearances. Smith had dated supermodel Mayana Moura and Daisy Lowe before he met James.
Since Smith isn’t active on any social media platforms, we can only assume he is a very private person who doesn’t want his fans to know who he’s dating. On Sunday nights, don’t miss him as Daenerys Targaryen on new episodes of House of the Dragon on HBO.
