Joseph Morgan’s Girlfriend? Is The Originals Star Dating Persia White?
Our Joseph Morgan-loving hearts about broke when he split fromRevenge star Emily VanCamp. But we’ve been wondering for a while if he’s found a new love in his former Vampire Diaries co-star Persia White.
Though Persia plays Bonnie’s (Kat Graham) mother, she’s only 35. (Of course, it's a bit of art imitating life, as Persia has a 16-year-old daughter of her own.) That’s three years older than the just-turned-32 Joseph Morgan. While it seems the two met on the TVD set, they’ve also worked together outside the TV show. The gorgeous actress starred in Joseph’s 10-minute film Revelation.
Since then, the two have been spotted together a few times. They walked the red carpet together at the 52nd Monte Carlo TV Festival in August 2012.
In March, Persia was in Atlanta and appeared with Joseph on the local CBS affiliate to talk about Revelation. You can watch the video below to see if you spot any clues about whether they’re dating.
The real kicker is a photo from the recent CW Upfronts. Joseph attended to promote his new show The Originals. Persia was there, holding his hand.
It’s not clear why she’d be at the event, except in support of Joseph. While she does have a guest-starring role on TVD, the only other representatives from that show in attendance were two of the main stars, Nina Dobrev (Elena Gilbert) and Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore).
It’s certainly compelling evidence to us! What do you think?
