Daisy Edgar-Jones and Tom Varey's relationship

It is not known how long the couple have been dating. However, since they both appeared in the film Pond Life in 2018, it's thought that this is where the couple met and have been inseparable since. After Daisy's recent fame from appearing as Marianne in Normal People, she recently spoke out about her relationship with Tom, and how he felt about those scenes in particular. The 21-year-old told the Evening Standard: "He was gritting his teeth [during the sex scenes] but at least he's seen it now." The couple clearly keep a low profile, but Daisy did post this sweet picture of her actor boyfriend on Instagram back in October, which sees a casual Tom posing for the snap. She captioned the post: "Lean on tree when you're not strong".
