Married Or Dating?

Being an actor, it is more than usual to be surrounded by the rumors related to the relationship life. The Black Mirror actress, Gugu Martha-Raw was the center of attention a few years back when she was expected to be in a relationship with English actor Harry Lloyd.

It was rumored that Gugu was dating Harry, who played Stephen Hawking’s best friend in the Oscar-nominated movie The Theory of Everything. The speculation surfaced on the media claiming that the two had a romantic fling until 2012. However, Gugu never publicly mentioned her dating history.

Besides, Gugu keeps herself busy on flaunting her off-screen romance rather than her life behind the camera lenses. Back in 2014, Gugu made a glazing appearance alongside her co-star of 2013 period drama Belle, Sam Reid.

The on-screen lovers enjoyed an intimate dinner after the Belle premiere in New York. Gugu looked stunningly attractive on her golden-yellow dress and was backed adequately by Sam, who appeared dashing as always in a black tuxedo.
