Laverne Cox is officially off the market. Who's the lucky man? According to multiple reports, the "Orange is the New Black" star has been linked to Jono Freedrix, a Canadian film mogul.
According to Us Weekly, Freedrix was once a high school teacher. During that time he led Killarney Films, an esteemed filmmaking program for teens. He has since moved on to pursue other ventures, becoming the president of The Virtual Stage. He has worked with fellow "Orange is the New Black" stars like Joel Marsh Garland and Patricia Squire on his show "Sucklepump." It is unclear how Cox, 31, and Freedrix are linked, but they have clearly known one another since at least 2014. As Us reports the pair were photographed together during the 2014 Emmys.
A glance at his Twitter profile suggests that Freedrix is an avid trans activist. On Nov. 10, 2015 he shared a photo of himself chatting with Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne, who was nominated for his work as a transgender male in "The Danish Girl," and Cox. In his caption, he included the hashtag "#TransIsBeautiful," which Cox and other transgender people or allies often use. His profile also features a retweet from Cox on Aug. 13, 2015 in which the "OITNB" shared an "adorable video" she was sent by the director. His Instagram showcases a mixture of art appreciation, posts about "Star Wars," and photos with well-known figures in Hollywood, including Gabbourey Sidibe, Keegan-Michael Key, and more.

Page Six reported on Monday that the pair may be a couple. Cox and Freedrix were seen together at the Weinstein Co. and Netflix SAG Awards after-party. During the event, which was hosted at the Sunset Tower in Los Angeles, the rumored couple spent the evening dancing and kissing.
