Who’s His Girlfriend, Is He Gay?
Thomas Brodie-Sangster is in a relationship with his British actress colleague and former child star Isabella Melling. Melling is known for her role in the popular British children’s sitcom My Parents Are Aliens (1999-2005).
Their relationship dates back to December 2012, but they kept it very well under wraps until they began appearing together in public in 2016. Their relationship had its fair share of separation rumors, but this couple has always kept quiet about all these rumors.
Before his relationship with Isabella Melling, Sangster was associated with a set designer and art director named Patience Harding. His relationship with the latter was short-lived, as it only lasted from 2008 to 2009.
Judging by his relationship history, one would probably assume that the British actor is heterosexual. The actor has never claimed the opposite, and he has never given us any reason to doubt his sexuality. Therefore, we can safely conclude that he is not gay.
