Following his starring role alongside Saoirse Ronan in Mary Queen of Scots, Jack Lowden has quickly become one of Britain’s most sought-after actors. Rumoured to be a potential choice for the next James Bond, the actor stars opposite Gary Oldman in the AppleTV+ thriller Slow Horses — which just so happens to be about a team of British Intelligence agents.

While he remains hush-hush on whether Bond’s casting director, Barbara Brocolli, has made that all-important call, there is one thing he seems to be more open about: his connection to Ronan. Rumoured to have started dating shortly after Mary Queen of Scots premiered, the couple hasn’t officially announced that they’re, well, a couple. But thanks to Lowden’s social media, it would seem they’ve made it Insta official at least.
