Besides his workplace, John took his girlfriend to Greece on a romantic holiday in the summer of 2018. With the pair’s evident love and chemistry, fans cannot help but wonder if they will take the plunge and get married. But the love birds are yet to reveal anything.

Apart from his now-girlfriend, he was also rumored to be dating his co-star of GOT

John Bradley has a soft, innocent character in GOT, who had an on-screen match-up with Hannah Murray's Gilly. Their sizzling chemistry on-screen led people to speculate about them sharing a love bond in real life as well.

Moreover, as they worked on the same set, they were often seen spending time together. John frequently drove her back home after the show, and he even did some romantic things, like taking her out on dates and buying flowers for her.

However, the onscreen duo never came out as lovers despite their romance's hype.

Later, when John commenced working for GOT's season four, he developed an affair with a girlfriend named Emily Dean. But, nothing much was made public about their relationship issues.

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?

John having a girlfriend proves that he is not gay. Apart from all the gay rumors, he has been insecure about his weight for his entire life. 

John Bradley's Weight Loss

John has always been insecure about his weight. However, in an interview with Conan, he shared how GOT helped him overcome his insecurities about his weight. 

He mentioned how the director of GOT was looking for someone like him. Nonetheless, he shared how the show accepted all his features that he considered a fault. 

However, he has lost some weight as the shows went on. So even though it was not a huge weight loss, it was still a big thing for John.

Moreover, the show has helped him accept his weight and has inspired a lot of fans from his story. 

He even talked about a fan approaching him and fat-shaming him on a London street. 

A fan was curious that as John's character Samwell is a part of Night’s watch and doesn't have access to lots of food, why wasn’t he able to lose his weight in the first three series. The fan asked,

'‘I’ve just been wondering, why are you still so fat?’

Surprised by the fan's question, he replied,

“Look, this is a fantasy show, We’ve got fire-breathing giant dragons, we’ve got ice zombies, we’ve got a woman giving birth to a cloud. Why is it me still being fat that you just don’t buy?”

He was amazed why weight loss had been an issue. But he handled the situation with a good sense of humor.

Regardless of his weight, it has not harmed his career.

They were counted as the most powerful noble families in the Reach. Once ashamed of him, his father forced him to take black under the threat of death to disinherit him.

It is said that the people, who seem insignificant at first, have the last laugh.

His character initially looked nothing more than a misshapen man struggling for survival in a realm where even the greatest warriors were killed like insects. But, as the show developed, Samwell proved to be worth more than just another casualty. 

Due to his role in the much-loved series, John has accumulated a net worth of $5 million.
