Natalia Dyer who plays Nancy Wheeler and Charlie Heaton who plays Jonathan Byers in Netflix’s Stranger Things have been dating each other since the show started in 2016.

2017 and starting on romance
Like their characters, Nancy Wheeler and Jonathan Byers in Stranger Things fell in love with each other in 1984 Hawkins, and so their real-life relationship began in 2017. The duo was seen together at the Los Angeles International Airport and it was rumored that they are dating. Natalia and Charlie tried to keep their relationship private. Heaton later talked about his relationship. “We didn’t really know what the relationship was. Anyway, being sneaky might not have been necessary,” he escaped by not confirming anything.

The co-star shared their experience working together
Later in July 2019, Stranger Things co-stars shared positive comments on working alongside each other. Natalia Dyer said it is always lovely working with Heaton during the promotions of Stranger Things season 3. “It’s always a great time. We know each other really well, so we can play and feel freer, and we can talk about it ahead of time. There’s a feeling that you don’t know if you’ll ever work with this person again. Who can say? This could be the last time you get to play like this.”

Post covid pandemic, Dyer talked about her relationship with the UK magazine Cosmopolitan in May 2022. “ It would be hard to find someone else with the same understanding. It’s hard to put into words. I always wonder why it keeps coming up. Now that I’ve experienced the other side of it, it sounds so cliché but I’m just a person, too.” Ever since the show started fans have been trying to get an insight into their favorite on-screen couple but the duo seems to spill no beans!
