Fans have been rooting for You stars Victoria Pedretti and Dylan Arnold to get together ever since rumors started circulating the internet that they were dating. Now, it seems like they might get their wish: Love and Theo could very well be a couple in real life!

Victoria Pedretti and Dylan Arnold play scandalous lovers Love and Theo

Part of the reason fans are so eager for Pedretti and Arnold to get together could be because they play deliciously scandalous lovers in season 3 of the popular Netflix series. The highly-anticipated third season came out on Oct. 15, and most fans have already binge-watched it and are hungry for the promised season 4

In the new season, Pedretti reprises her role as Love Quinn. She and the show’s protagonist/narrator, Joe Goldberg, played to perfection by Penn Badgley, got married and had a baby since viewers last saw them in season 2. 

Both Love and Joe find themselves tempted to stray from their marriage. Joe is tempted by the next-door neighbor, who Love kills in a fit of jealous rage. But then Love falls for the teenage stepson of the woman she killed, who also lives next door. Theo, played by Arnold, is 19 years old and significantly younger than Love, making their romance even more scandalous. 

Once rumors started circulating that the You characters might be dating in real life, fans were quick to point out that their relationship wouldn’t be the egregious affair that it was on the show. 

For one thing, neither of the actors are married. For another, 27-year-old Arnold is actually one year older than Pedretti. 

Dylan Arnold and Victoria Pedretti were spotted out together

Although neither actor has commented publicly on their relationship, Pedretti and Arnold fueled dating rumors when they were photographed running errands together on Sunday, Nov. 7. 

The photos on Twitter show the actors buying toilet paper, sponges, and laundry detergent. Both actors carried iced coffees, and Pedretti held what appeared to be takeout food containers. They weren’t showing off a lot of PDA, but they still looked very much like a couple.

Pedretti and Arnold were spotted again later the same day wearing different outfits. Although they weren’t carrying home supplies this time, Arnold was holding two toothbrushes when the alleged couple entered a home together. They also left together later that day.

The ‘You’ actor is fiercely protective of her privacy

Although fans are keeping an eye on the couple, they might never get public confirmation of their relationship. Pedretti is very private and prefers to keep her personal life to herself.  

In a February 2020 interview with InStyle, Pedretti revealed that she doesn’t want people speculating about her off-screen life. 

When asked what she wanted people to know about her, the actor answered, “I want them to know less. I want people to know that I have no interest in them speculating about what they don’t know.”

It’s safe to say that Pedretti won’t be flaunting her love life off-camera, but it still looks like Love and Theo are dating in the real world!
