Daisy Ridley dating Tom Bateman? Amid claims they have fallen for one another on the set of new movie Murder On The Orient Express.
The 25-year-old actress and the handsome star, 28, reportedly hit it off while filming their respective roles as Mary Debenham and Bouc on the Kenneth Branagh-helmed adaptation of the Agatha Christie classic.
And although they had wanted to keep things quiet, a producer let the news slip at the red carpet premiere of the movie at London’s Royal Albert Hall on Thursday.
According to the Daily Mirror, Judy Hofflund let slip: ‘Something kinda happened with Tom and Daisy… but that’s public news, right? I should keep my mouth shut.’
When later pushed on whether the rumour was true, Tom skirted around the question and claimed the producers just like to ‘create a buzz’ sometimes.
Daisy – who previously dated Charlie Hamblett – refused to comment last month when she was asked by press whether she had a man on the scene.
She coyly replied at the time: ‘I’m not saying.’
At Thursday evening’s premiere, the pair kept away from one another – posing for photos with most of the other cast members and then staying a hair’s breadth between each other when they assembled for a full cast photo.
They posed alongside their Hollywood heavyweight co-stars Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Lucy Boynton, Josh Gad, Dame Judi Dench, Sir Kenneth Branagh, Michelle Pfeiffer, Willem Dafoe, Derek Jacobi, Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz.
