“Supergirl” stars Melissa Benoist and Chris Wood sparked dating rumors after they were spotted several times in public together.
On Sunday, Benoist and Wood — who play lovers Kara and Mon-El on the CW series — were seen arriving at LAX together. In a couple of photos obtained by the Daily Mail, the rumored couple walked closely together to their flight to Vancouver, where their show shoots. In a sweet gesture, Wood also appeared to be wheeling Benoist’s luggage in addition to his own.
Benoist and Wood landed in Vancouver on Monday. Later that day, the two were again spotted out together. According to Entertainment Tonight, Benoist and Wood seemed to be enjoying each other’s company while walking their dogs together. The news outlet reported that the two are officially a couple, but both actors have yet to confirm whether they are indeed dating.
In December last year, Benoist filed for divorce from her husband of just under two years, Blake Jenner. According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Benoist cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split and doesn’t want either party to give spousal support. Benoist and Jenner met on the set of “Glee,” in which they played lovers Marley Rose and Ryder Lynn.
Meanwhile, it was reported in January that Wood had broken up with his girlfriend and former “Containment” co-star Hanna Mangan-Lawrence.
According to Entertainment Tonight — which visited the set of “The Flash” and “Supergirl” musical crossover last month — Benoist and Wood seemed very comfortable with one another off-screen. At the time, Benoist admitted that her and Wood’s budding onscreen relationship was one of her personal highlights from Season 2 of “Supergirl.”
“Kara this season has totally been coming into her own and learning how to be a woman,” the 28-year-old actress told Entertainment Tonight. “Last season, she learned how to be Supergirl. And, now, she’s coming into her own more as an adult and, obviously, balancing love with everything that goes with that, so I love it. I think it’s a really sweet thing that she's learning about herself.”
When asked if she’s a fan of Kara and Mon-El, a.k.a. Karamel, Benoist coyly replied: “I’m a fan of Kara being happy.”
Wood, meanwhile, opened up about what it’s been like working with Benoist as his onscreen love interest. “[Melissa and I have] found this nice pocket for the characters to live in,” the 28-year-old actor said. “It was just so easy to play and she's just so generous as an actress that she just keeps it rolling. She makes it easy.”
“Supergirl” airs every Monday at 8 p.m. EST on The CW.
