Right now it feels like the whole country has fallen in love with Normal People.

Paul Mescal relationship status
Many might be pleased to know that Paul is single! But thanks to his huge success, we don't see that lasting long. On his search for love, the 24-year-old actor recently revealed: "I want to find something similar to Connell and Marianne, but only in the last chapter in the book when they have such a deep connection emotionally and physically. That might be a dragon that I might be chasing for a long time."
Paul, who plays Connell, is currently single
Daisy Edgar-Jones relationship status
Unlike her co-star, it seems leading actress Daisy is loved up. The actress, who has also appeared in shows such as Cold Feet and War of the Worlds, is in a relationship with fellow actor Tom Varey. Tom is a 29-year-old British actor, best known for his role in HBO and Sky's hit series Game of Thrones, and the pair have been spotted out together a couple of times looking loved-up. The two reportedly met on the set of indie film Pond Life back in 2018.

Sarah Greene relationship status
Sarah Greene plays Lorraine, Connell's single mum in the BBC drama. The 35-year-old was previously linked to Poldark actor Aidan Turner. The two were together for five years before they called it quits in 2015. The actress told the Irish Independent after the split: "No one likes that scrutiny or people thinking they know something about you and they're just guessing - you know, reading a 'source says' and taking that as verbatim. I just ignore it now though and I did at the time as well." Now, the actress is in a relationship with another long-term partner and even admitted she'd "love" to become a mum.
