Actor Luke Grimes, Who is He Dating With? Get Acquainted to His Girlfriend, Any Married Plan?

Being famous and still managing to keep your personal life private is a major task. And it should be done efficiently, without offending your fans. Give them just a glimpse of your personal life to keep them interested.

That way they won't know everything about you, but they'll know just enough to keep themselves interested. Only some celebrities can keep their private life private, whereas some lay it all out there for his/her fans to know.

 Similarly, Luke Grimes may not have revealed much about his personal life, but that doesn't mean his fans won't be able to keep up with his enclosed love life. This handsome hunk of an actor has currently been dating 90210 actress Gillian Zinser. Not much may come in to focus on their relationship from Gillian's Instagram account.

But one thing is clear; she is a lover of art and design. She has been described as a creative genius. Neither Luke nor Gillian may post much about each other on their social media accounts, but this doesn't mean they aren't madly in love with each other.

His Dating Life and Girlfriend?

American erotic romantic drama Fifty Shades of Grey actor, Luke Grimes is currently into the dating pool. Grimes who plays Elliot Grey adopted brother of a 27-year-old billionaire entrepreneur in Fifty Shades of Grey, shares romance with his long-term actress girlfriend, Gillian Zinser.

Luke doesn't have social media accounts. But his twitter fan page gives his fans all the news they need to know about his love life. Luke is a private person and doesn't reveal much about his personal life to the media. These two lovebirds have been together for almost five years since November 2011

Maybe in the future, Luke will introduce Gillian as Mrs. Grimes. Luke's and Gillian's fans have their fingers crossed to see these two get married in the future. Even though they've been dating for a long time, Luke is in no hurry to get down on one knee. Time will tell if Gillian is indeed his future wife.

Luke Grimes against being Gay?

Before the opportunity of Fifty Shades of Black and American Sniper showed itself before Grimes, his role in 'The Vampire Diaries' was his biggest shot. But back when the 7th and the Final season of The Vampire Diaries aired, fans quickly noticed his absence and he was replaced by Nathan Parsons.

Initially, the reason given for the leave was because of personal reasons and that the actor was presented with better opportunities,

However, Buzzfeed eventually reported on this matter and put some light on this shade to reveal a dark truth. The actor, Luke Grimes was against acting in a homosexual relationship in the TV series.

Apparently, Luke Grimes was against the original script for Season 7 for when his character turned out to be Bisexual and wanted it changed or at least modified. But when the directors refused his proposition, Luke took his leave, or that's what the move was speculated to be.

In hindsight, he was offered better opportunities back then, and he is more successful now than ever after Fifty Shades of Dark but still, really makes you think about his opposition.

His fellow cast was distraught over his actions, and Co-actor Nelsan Ellis, the actor who plays the role of the male character Grimes' role, was supposed to romance had to say some harsh words about Luke.

"I mean, I can say I'm not going to make a comment, but I just think that, you're an actor, you're an actor on a show that's 'True Blood, We're all sitting there going, 'You quit your job because ... really?' I'm just... I'm over him. You quit your job because you don't want to play a gay part? As if it's ... You know what? I'm going to stop talking."

But furthermore added,

"When scripts come, we're like, 'What are they going to have us do this week?' But when you make a statement that is a judgment ... I was kind of like, 'Have you met Alan Ball? (the creator of the Vampire Diaries, who is openly gay) I'm supposed to do what my boss tells me to do, as an actor. I can't approach a character with judgment. I certainly can't tell my boss, 'I can act what I want to act, but not what you tell me to act,' especially on a show where you come in, knowing what it is. I was like, 'Okay... I guess?' I just thought that, having just done the documentary(his documentary named Damn Wonderful which is about gay suicide), I didn't like what he did because he made a statement, and sometimes you have to take responsibility"
