Avgeropoulos, a native of Ontario, Canada, is perhaps best known for her supporting role in I Love You, Beth Cooper. She’s also landed parts in the blockbuster Percy Jackson & the Lightning Thief, and critical success 50/50. On the small screen, Avgeropoulos was a series regular on the CW’s Cult and will star in the upcoming post-apocalyptic drama The 100, also on the CW.
Lautner and Avgeropoulos were first photographed together on July 29 holding hands in Manhattan, while in the city’s SoHo district. Just last month the couple was spotted on a dinner date at the Beverly Hills L’Ermitage Hotel.
Lautner’s past high profile relationships include short-lived romances with Taylor Swift and Lily Collins, as well as an on-and-off relationship with his high school sweetheart Sara Hicks. Avgeropoulos has previously dated her I Love You, Beth Cooper costar Shawn Roberts.
