Laura Carmichael and Michael Fox dating

Laura Carmichael and Michael Fox are dating.

The 'Downton Abbey' star - who played Lady Edith Crawley in the ITV drama - has reportedly fallen for her co-star Michael, who played her on-screen servant, Andrew Parker.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Laura and Michael struck up a great friendship during filming last year. They started off as mates but quickly realised there was chemistry there and decided to start dating.

"It's very early days still but they are really enjoying each other's company. The best part is that since the show ended they have had a lot more time to spend with each other. Before that, most of their time together was at work."

The pair were spotted walking hand in hand through London's Hampstead Heath, appearing to confirm their new relationship status.

Meanwhile, at least Laura will now always have a companion to remember the popular show with, as she previously revealed she found it difficult to leave Highclere Castle, one of the locations where the show is filmed.

She said: "It was very strange saying goodbye to the castle. It felt like, in a split second, it wasn't our home anymore. And, of course, it was never our home. It was the Highclere Castle. But it felt like it for over six years."
