Apart from grabbing considerable attention for his astounding portrayals in Outlander and The Crown, English actor Tobias Menzies has his fans curious about his love life as well.
But, besides his past relationship with Kristin Scott Thomas, which fell under the limelight for quite a while, the actor hasn’t spilled tea on his current relationship status.
What Happened Between Menzies and Kristin Scott Thomas?
The two prominent actors crossed their path in 2003 while performing on the theatre play The Three Sisters. Although, their romantic relationship came to light only in 2005.
As reported, the two were sighted going out on a romantic dinner and spending the night together in the actress’s apartment in London.
The news soon peaked with controversial speculation as the actress was still married to her then-husband, Professor Francois Olivennes. Thomas’s relationship with her thirteen years younger co-star soon resulted in her divorce from Olivennes.
Furthermore, Menzies and Thomas also put an end to their ongoing affair. They went their separate ways, seemingly in good terms, as the actor was found promoting Thomas’s work in Military Wives in 2020 through his Twitter account.
