Matt Smith & Girlfriend, Who Is He Dating After Split With Lily James?

English born actor Matt Smith is best known as the eleventh doctor in BBC's Doctor Who (2005). His role in other TV shows such as The Crown (2016) is equally notable as well.

After all, for his performance in the show, he was nominated in the category of Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series at the 2018 Primetime Emmy Award. Likewise, the actor is prolific in portraying diverse roles which is evident from his movie Mapplethorpe(2018), where he played the role of gay photographer Robert Mapplethorpe

Split With Girlfriend?

Matt and his girlfriend Lily James' relationship is a well-known affair among fans and tabloids alike. The pair first started seeing each other in 2014 while working together on the movie Pride, Prejudice & Zombies.

During their first five years together, the pair managed to generate engagement rumors on various occasions. During the 2018 BAFTA's his girlfriend was spotted donning an enormous diamond ring on her ring finger.

However, his partner quickly put an end to the speculations by denying her engagement during her interview with PorterEdit magazine.

Unfortunately, in 2019, reports started coming in about his possible split with Lily. By the end of 2019, news sources such as suggested that the pair had called it quits following their hectic schedule.

After all, he wasn't seen together with his girlfriend since August and on top of that, she was nowhere to be seen at Matt's 30th birthday party.

Moreover, on 3rd December that year, the actor was spotted with his partner in their first public outing after four months. The two were even pictured keeping a distance between each other while heading for their lunch together at The Spaniards Inn in Hampstead, London.

Seeing Different People Now?

It seems very probable that Matt's heart is getting closer to Claire Foy, his co-star from the Netflix show The Crown. The dating rumors started to surface after the artist was spotted enjoying a playful and beautiful afternoon with Claire in London's South Bank.

The two could be seen smiling as they strolled towards getting lunch together on 4th October 2019. Interestingly, Claire was previously married to actor Stephen Campbell Moore so, perhaps, she has her options open for now.

But, since the two were also working together on the play Lungs together, it could be just a friendly meet up.

On the other hand, Matt's partner too seems to be enjoying someone else's company. On 2nd December 2019, Lilly was seen accompanying actor Max Ianeselli at Giorgio Armani Fashion Awards afterparty held in London.

So, looking at the scenario, there break off seems to be near. But neither Matt nor Lilly have made any comments on the speculations or confirmed their split. Hence, for now, viewers and tabloids are left to their assumptions.
