But, as the show developed, Samwell proved to be worth more than just another casualty. 

And with John's performance, the GOT character became one of the fan favorites.

Amid his onscreen fame, people often have the same question, is John Bradley a married man, or is he casually dating a girlfriend? Moreover, he has a lot of friends who belong to the gay side, but is it because he too belongs to the category? Let's find out!

As the actor has many gay friends, there was a rumor of him being gay as well. But he said, 

I think there's this kind of sub-category of people who like chubby men with beards, but I don't know what they're called. I should probably find out. I have heard about that, and I'm deeply flattered. But I think that, once again, to go back to "use whatever you've got," I'd never rule anything out. But as far as opportunities go—if you're talking about straight men such as me—[then] in what capacities do you mean?

Well, the actor's fans can take a break with the stories as he is single no more. John has been dating Rebecca April May for a while now.
