Inside ‘Outer Banks’ Stars Chase Stokes and Madelyn Cline’s Romance After Nearly 1 Year of Dating
Cutest couple around! Outer Banks stars Chase Stokes and Madelyn Cline took their relationship public in June 2020 and are still going strong.
The Netflix actors made fans blush during a steamy makeout session on stage at the MTV Movie & TV Awards in May 2021 while accepting the award for Best Kiss. However, the pair aren’t shy about their romance on social media.
“It’s quite rare to meet somebody and feel everything change,” Chase captioned a series of photos with Madelyn via Instagram in December 2020. “Thank you for making the coldest days warm, for your infectious love and being the best dog mom to Lil Mi. Happy birthday, sweet thang, you make my heart warm and fuzzy 25/8.”
The Maryland native and Stranger Things actress made their romance Instagram official in June 2020 after months of speculation.
“Cat’s outta the bag,” Chase captioned two photos of the couple having a picnic on the beach. In response, Madelyn commented, “Topper punching the air rn,” and, “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up.”
Back in April 2020, the duo, who play onscreen lovers John B and Sarah Cameron on the Netflix teen drama, sparked dating rumors after some particularly flirty social media comments.
“Heart rate … decreasing … help,” Chase wrote on her Instagram. He later commented, “Man, I really stirred the pot here didn’t I?”
Madelyn also posted a photo of the OB cast where she and Chase look pretty cozy, and fans took notice. “You and Chase are so cute,” one user commented at the time. “I swear you and John B are dating IRL,” added another.
That same month, Chase told People he was quarantining with Madelyn and costars Drew Starkey and Rudy Pankow amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“We’re all staying together, quarantining together,” he told the outlet. “We made a huge fort in the living room, so there’s this true honesty to the friendship you see onscreen that is equally present offscreen as well.”
Additionally, Chase shared that he and Rudy, who plays his character’s best friend, lived together while filming the series.
“We really wanted to make that friendship dynamic real, so we got a place, and every weekend everybody would come over,” he said of the cast.
“We’d play video games, board games, we’d sing, dance, it was a riot,” he explained. “It really felt like an adult version of a YMCA camp, where you’re having slumber parties.”
Perhaps it’s only a matter of time before another couple emerges from the group? Only time will tell!
