Hannah tointon dating inbetweener

Their characters Simon and Tara dated on beloved TV series The Inbetweeners.

However it seems that Joe Thomas and Hannah Tointon have taken their relationship to the next level in real life too, after it was reported they were engaged on Sunday.

It’s the kind of outfit that would set off feverish adolescent fantasies in The Inbetweeners, the E4 sitcom in which Emily stars.

The show follows the clammy fortunes of a quartet of suburban teenage boys as they negotiate friendships, females and growing pains in a no-holds-barred fashion that’s made it a huge cult hit.

Emily Head breezes into a South London studio clutching a bottle of Diet Coke, dumps her bag, and blows a blonde wisp out of her eyes.

‘Just been to an audition,’ she says, nodding at her smart attire – polka-dot blouse, black skirt, redoubtable heels.

For most of us, this was the first major job we’d done, so we all felt it intensely.

A couple of us had acted before, but most hadn’t, and we’ve all come out of the other side together. Girls mature much earlier than boys and that’s when it all gets a bit witchy, because they’re aware of their power over them, and it’s all about how they exercise that.

But now Joe Thomas and Hannah Tointon from The Inbetweeners are engaged, according to social media and, rather appropriately, Uni Lad.

It’s been nearly seven years since 33-year-old Joe, who played unlucky-in-love ringleader Simon, started dating 29-year-old Hannah, who played Simon’s slightly crazy girlfriend of about a week or so, Tara. Hannah, who is The Halcyon actress Kara Tointon’s younger sister, first appeared in the third series of The Inbetweeners, and is now better known for her roles in Mr Selfridge, Penny Dreadful and Hollyoaks.

But he did mention to my mum that he didn’t want my sister and me to get heavily into it at too young an age – he thought all the disappointment and rejection would be too crushing for us.

I eventually did a BTec in acting at the Brit School in lieu of A-levels – the singer Katy B was in my year, and Adele was in the year above me, though I didn’t know her – but I’d actually had an agent since I was about 13. I’ve never wanted to mention his name, because I never want to feel I’ve got where I am because of him.

The Inbetweeners has made stars out of all its young cast, but Emily, 22, hails from acting royalty: her father, Anthony Head, was the smoothie in the Gold Blend ads and has starred as Rupert Giles in Buffy The Vampire Slayer and as the Prime Minister – the object of a serious crush himself – in Little Britain. And, as she discusses life before and after The Inbetweeners, it quickly becomes apparent that, unlike the hapless kids in the series, Emily has a pretty wise head on her shoulders.
