Emilia Clarke

Seth and Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke reportedly dated from 2012-2013. Three years after their assumed break-up, Emilia finally opened up about their relationship and the cons of dating someone in the public eye.

In a 2016 interview with Glamour, the Khaleesi actress confessed:, "Well, a con is you have strangers giving you love-life advice like, 'I'm a big fan of the show, and I'm not sure what you're doing with that guy,' which I didn't react well to," she explained. "That happened in New York when Seth and I were together. This guy started to give me advice: 'Can I get a selfie? And by the way…' Unh-unh, bro.'"

Seth and Tamara Mowry-Housley have reportedly dated, though neither have confirmed when that was. In a 2014 interview, the late Larry King asked the Twitches actress: "Did you date my friend Seth MacFarlane? Is that true?"

Tamara was caught off guard, but she laughed and confirmed, "For a day, yes I did." She and her twin sister, Tia, who was also on the interview, shared surprise at the question. Tamara added: "It was for a day, but we were really, really good friends."

Anne Winters

Seth's most recent romantic encounter involved his The Orville co-star, Anne Winters. The two had only been working together a short time before they were caught "getting cozy" in December 2021 on Winters' Instagram story. 

Nothing has been posted since then, and neither star has officially confirmed their relationship, however.

Anne is not the first co-star Seth has reportedly gotten cozy with, as reports circulated of a relationship between him and his season one co-star Halston Sage, a woman 20 years his junior.

Seth has allegedly been linked with other women in the industry, including Kate Todd, Trisha Cummings, Christa Campbell, Jessica Barth, and Kaylee DeFer, according to Who's Dated Who. However, the comedian's dating life still remains largely private.
