Saoirse Ronan is reportedly dating her Mary Queen Of Scots co-star Jack Lowden.

The pair are said to have struck up a romance while on set for the upcoming historical film, where they play on-screen lovers.

Though they reportedly managed to keep the romance completely secret from the rest of the cast during filming, the couple appeared to confirm the relationship on Tuesday during a celebrity screening of the movie in New York City.

Sources told Page Six, the Irish actress, 24, and her rumoured new beau put on an affectionate display at the screening’s after-party at Central Park hotspot Tavern on the Green.

‘Jack was following her all over,’ an insider told the publication.

‘He even followed her to the bathroom and was waiting outside for her. They were very close.’

The couple’s cosy display on Tuesday is said to have come as a complete surprise to their Mary Queen Of Scots co-stars – including Margot Robbie, Joe Alwyn, David Tennant, and Guy Pearce – who reportedly had no idea the pair were an item until seeing them together at the event.

A movie source told Page Six: ‘We don’t know when they got together, we only found out on Tuesday night when they rolled up together – but they seem very happy and sweet.’

Taking to Instagram to celebrate the film’s upcoming release, Jack shared a photo of himself cosying up to Saoirse as the pair rocked their evening best.

‘We Queened,’ the 28-year-old captioned the image.

Mary Queen of Scots sees Saoirse  and Jack entwined in a complex love story as the Lovely Bones star takes on the eponymous character and Jack – who previously starred in Dunkirk alongside Harry Styles – plays her on-screen husband Lord Darnley, who is plagued both by his sexuality and his ability to remain faithful.

The movie is due for release later this month.

And if we couldn’t wait before, we certainly can’t now!
