If fans - gay or straight - thought of getting married to Richard Armitage, now might be a good time than any as he is no longer a fiance to his partner.

A hit among the female as well as gay man demographic, the Brit's actor singlehood came at a cost.

Shatters Gay Rumors; Co-Star Partner

Richard aka Thorin Oakenshield from The Hobbit trilogy is quite famous for his work in the movies.

However, crushing all the gay rumors with Lee Pace, he got engaged to his girlfriend turned fiancée Samantha Colley. The 47 years old English actor kept it all a secret but eventually, it all got out.

However, Richard didn't take the liberty to tell everyone how they got introduced to each other, where they met for the first time and when. He kept it as low-key as possible.

However, a source claimed that the couple first met on the sets of The Crucible which seems to be accurate enough. Because, in April of 2014, news came that Richard Armitage and Samantha Colley will be playing together in The Crucible.

Richard Armitage played the role of John Proctor, and Samantha Colley played the role of a girl who was love struck by Richard’s character and persuaded him to lapse. Well, the sort of on-screen romance made its way to their real life. The couple started dating and then got engaged in June of 2016.
