Gale Harold plays Charles Meade on The CW’s The Secret Circle, a bewitching dad with a storied past. In real life, the Atlanta-born actor is intensely private and little is known of his personal life. However, Canadian paparazzi recently caught Gale strolling around Vancouver with his ladyfriend, gorgeous Cuban actress Yara Martinez. As devoted Gale fans, we did some digging to find out if this girl is cool enough to deserve The Secret Circle star.

Yara, 31, was a ballerina for 10 years before breaking into acting. She has starred in a number of hit shows, including ER, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, CSI: NY and The Unit. She grew up in Miami, Florida, and now lives in Los Angeles.

Yara tells Media Mikes that her favorite day-off activities are seeing concerts and silent films: “We like to go to the silent movie theater. This month they are showing some French films from the ‘60s and ‘70s.  We will go with some friends to dinner…take a bottle of wine…and watch French films [laughs].” Sounds like she’s up to snuff for our intellectual heartthrob!
