Dean-Charles Chapman And Rumored Girlfriend Played Baratheon Siblings
In the Game Of Thrones series, Dean-Charles Chapman played the role of Tommen Baratheon, the nineteenth ruler of the Seven Kingdoms. His real-life rumored girlfriend, Nell Tiger Free, played his on-screen sister, Myrcella Baratheon.
Tommen and Myrcella were the younger siblings to Joffrey Baratheon. Together, the three were legal children of King Robert Baratheon and his queen Cersei Lannister, but biological children, born out of incest, of Cersei Lannister and her twin brother Jamie Lannister.

Dean-Charles Chapman's Closeness With Nell Fueled Dating Rumors
Rumors about Chapman dating Nell started surfacing around 2015.
It apparently happened in July 2015 after the duo's GOT co-star Isaac Hempstead Wright took to Twitter to address them as his best friends. Posting a picture of himself and the two, he wrote," Aren't they so cute?' As Isaac's question failed to clarify if he meant to praise them as a person or praise their relationship, many assumed the second part was the motive.
Boosting the speculation, the same day (13 July 2015), Chapman's rumored-girlfriend Nell posted an adorable picture of him tying her shoelace. She then captioned it as: 'I have him on whip.'
Instead of subsiding, the 1917 star's dating rumors started to become the town's talk thereafter. The cause? Chapman's growing closeness with Nell became evident on social media handles, mostly on Nell's Twitter.
For instance, on 10 August 2015, Nell posted a 'miss you' message dedicated to Into The Badlands actor directly. She even used a heart emoji at the end of the message that read: Miss you @Dean C Chapman.
Moreover, on 17 August 2015, Chapman's rumored-partner, Nell, revealed that they camped along with Isaac Hampstead for a night and enjoyed the 'hilarious night.'

On her Twitter, she shared Nylon's article that questioned if Chapman and Nell were in a relationship and hinted NO through her cryptical message.
