36-year-old Hartnett and 26-year-old Egerton met whilst filming The Lovers in 2012.  The two, directed by Roland Joffé, played love interests in the time-travel drama. Sources, speaking about the origins of their relationship, described it as “a natural thing that happened”.

"He said she was really nice,” the source added, as the NY Daily News reports. “They seem to just really enjoy each other's company.”

The Penny Dreadful actor is usually extremely quiet about his private life and the two, despite being frequently spotted together, have managed to remain largely out of the public eye. Harnett alluded to the importance he places on his privacy during an interview earlier this year.

"I purposefully didn't want people to know too much about my personal life because I think a lot of people give it away for free," Harnett said during an interview with USA Today. "I think if you spend too much time courting people's attention into your personal life, you lose your ownership of it. That's why I make sure my life is my own. I was not a dumb kid. I was a little bit wary of this business. I saw what it could do to people pretty quickly."
