6 Pairs That Dated & Broke Up Before Appearing on the Same TV Show
There’s no shortage of former celebrity couples working together on a TV show, post-split. Shoot, some are even forced to shoot sex scenes, like Nina Dobrev & Ian Somerhalder on The Vampire Diaries, Sophia Bush & Chad Michael Murray on One Tree Hill and Crystal Reed & Daniel Sharman on Teen Wolf. But what can you do if you signed a contract, ya know?
Very rarely, though, do you find former celebrity couples choosing to work together after they call it quits. As in, two famous people who used to date prior to ever appearing on a certain television series with the other. It doesn’t happen often, but we did manage to find six such examples:
Lea Michele & Matthew Morrison
Though the paired denied dating rumors in the early days of Glee, Lea confessed to dating the man who played her on-screen teacher for so many years in her 2014 book, Brunette Ambition.
"When we shot the pilot, I met Cory Monteith, Kevin McHale, Amber Riley, and Chris Colfer for the first time," Lea wrote. "I had worked on Broadway with Jenna Ushkowitz and Matthew Morrison before. Matt had been a friend of mine for years, and in fact we'd actually dated back in the day for a Broadway beat."
Rachel & Mr. Schue, wha-?!
