Well, reality is imitating art. Liza Weil and Charlie Weber are dating and have been a couple since summer 2016, his rep confirmed to People Wednesday. Just Jared was first to report the news Wednesday, alongside photos of the How to Get Away With Murder co-stars holding hands Tuesday in Los Angeles. Per a source who spoke to Just Jared, "They have been dating under the radar for nearly a year." The source also said the duo became closer after they both got divorced last year.
On June 5, Weber wrote a super sweet birthday message for Weil, which kind of gave away their coupling. "Happy Birthday to my beautiful and talented partner in crime," he tweeted. A ton of emojis followed the tweet. Based on that alone, it sure seems like he is over the moon for the Gilmore Girls actor.
It appears that they've been close for awhile now. In a March 2016 interview with E! News, Weber talked about his friendship with Weil while discussing their HTGAWM characters. "You know, Liza's a very, very good friend of mine, so it's been nice to develop that on screen with Frank and Bonnie," he said. So it sounds like their friendship developed into something romantic.
Seeing as they are dating, it's like their Season 3 HTGAWM storyline is now a reality. As viewers know, their characters, Frank and Bonnie, have been tight for years, kind of like a brother and a sister. However, all of that changed in the third season when they became intimately involved. Frank and Bonnie's connection is definitely a complicated one.

Funnily enough, Weber and Weil aren't the only two HTGAWM stars who have been linked romantically. In March 2016, Aja Naomi King and Alfred Enoch were first rumored to be dating. At The Hollywood Reporter's Most Powerful Stylists dinner, E! News asked King if she and Enoch were involved. She did not give a straight answer, but rather said, "People could think what they want and I'm going to let them." She added, "He's a beautiful man and I think I'm quite a lovely young lady." At the time of the report, Bustle reached out to both King and Enoch's reps for comment, but did not receive an immediate response.
Let's just hope Weber and Weil can avoid all of the drama, murder, and intensity Frank and Bonnie continue to face. I have a feeling that most definitely won't be an issue.
