Personal Life – Husband or Boyfriend
When you work in close proximity with someone over a long period of time, you tend to develop affection for them, and as it happens in other industries, so does it in Hollywood.

The story is the same for Erin Krakow, who is in a relationship with her onscreen lover and co-star, Daniel Lissing. Although the actress and actor have both tried to play down their onscreen chemistry and off-screen interactions with each other as shown by their Instagram posts, the couple’s effort to keep their relationship secret has failed.
