You know how sometimes there are two people on screen and there is such an amazing chemistry between their characters that you can practically see sparks fly? It’s sometimes the main reason to keep watching a show, just to see when they will finally get together. Well, this attraction is not always an act. In fact, it happens often that two actors who portray a romantic couple on screen are dating in real life as well. Let’s have a look at this list compiled by Diply.
1. Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder
Nina and Ian played Elena and Damon in The Vampire Diaries. These two characters looked so perfect for each other that most everyone wanted them to get together. They did indeed end up in a romantic relationship, but so did the actors portraying them.

Nina and Ian dated for three years before breaking up. Elena and Damon kept being a couple on screen, and that was probably cause for some tension and awkwardness on set. In the end, Nina left the show, and Ian married actress Nikki Reed, who played Rosalie Cullen in Twilight.
2. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson
Ah, the Twilight years. It seems everyone was engaged in one of the biggest shipping wars ever: Team Edward or Team Jacob? But there was a real romance going on as well, as actors Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were an item off set too. They waited three years before revealing their romance to the world.

Even though Bella and Edward got their happy ending, the same didn’t happen for the actors playing them. Rob and Kristen dated on and off for six years. But then she was caught cheating with the director of Snow White and the Huntsman, a movie where she played the lead role, and they eventually broke up for good in 2014.

This wasn’t the longest of relationships, as it lasted only two months, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t meaningful. Taylor S. even wrote the song Back To December about Taylor L. and then sang it in front of him at the American Music Awards. Awkward…
4. Taylor Lautner and Lily Collins
After the brief romance with Taylor Swift, Taylor Lautner met Lily Collins while filming the 2011 thriller Abduction. Seriously, they really looked so good together.

However, this was another short-lived fling, as they ended things only a month later.
5. Bridgit Mendler and Shane Harper
Bridgit and Shane met on the set of American sitcom Good Luck Charlie. Their characters had a very dramatic relationship as they kept breaking up and getting back together almost every episode.
The relationship between the actors was more stable than that: they were together for three years. Afterwards, both Brigit and Shane have said that they really enjoyed working together and that it was great that their relationship began as a friendship.

6. Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens
Look at them in this picture from the first High School Musical! They were babies! They played Troy and Gabriella who fell in love and could stop singing about it. Their relationship was truly adorable.
Zac and Vanessa dated for five years before they broke up. It was pretty sad. Anyone else miss Zanessa?
