Tobias Menzies, who has a slew of TV roles under his belt, including Edmure Tully on Game of Thrones, Prince Phillip on The Crown, and Frank Randall and Black Jack Randall on Outlander, has gotten a lot of attention, mostly for his love life.
Since he came under fire for dating a married woman, the understatedly gorgeous actor with grooved cheeks has kept his relationship facts near to his heart.
Tobias Menzies’ Relationship With Kristin Scott Thomas
Menzies’ relationship with English actress Kristin Scott Thomas made headlines, partially because the two were 13 years apart in age and were accused of having an extramarital affair.
In 2003, while playing in Chekhov’s The Three Sisters, the Outlander actor met the mother-of-three for the first time. However, word of their connection broke two years later, while Thomas was in London performing in a stage rendition of the film As You Desire Me. She was still married to François Olivenness, a gynecologist.
Meanwhile, her connection to Menzies was revealed as the two enjoyed a romantic supper in an Italian restaurant while strolling down King’s Road in Chelsea. They proceeded to Thomas’ flat after supper, where Menzies had gotten out the day before. Thomas divorced her husband the same year after their agent acknowledged their growing romance. And as her marriage to the Rome star deteriorated, so did her connection with him.
Both the North London resident and his girlfriend shied away from discussing their relationship and breakup. Despite their breakup, they appear to have kept up a friendly relationship. On May 22, 2020, Menzies supported his ex-film, girlfriend’s Military Wives.
Clarification Regarding Gay Rumors
In the American television series Outlander, Menzies plays Jonathan, also known as Black Jack.
Despite being a male character, his character had a borderline fascination with Jamie Fraser, played by Sam Heughan. Fans wondered if Black Jack was gay after the episode in which he forced a physical relationship with Jamie.
In a May 2016 interview with EW, Menzies clarified the rumors. He claimed that his character’s sexuality was not classified as homosexual. He also stated that Jonathan felt an envious link with Jamie, rather than a sexual attraction.
Is Tobias Menzies dating or married now?
The Crown star has kept his dating life under wraps since his breakup with Kristin Thomas. His social media accounts, mostly Twitter (he does not use Instagram), have not been updated with any details concerning his relationship.
As a result, it’s unknown whether the 47-year-old is dating or married. It’s also likely that the actor is taking advantage of his single status to focus on his career. However, because the actor has preserved his anonymity, no conclusions can be drawn.
