Australian actor Adam Demos is happily dating his co-star Sarah Shahi!
The pair play onscreen lovers in the new Netflix series Sex/Life, but romance developed off-screen too.
“I said, ‘Well, that’s a tall drink of water.’ When I first met Adam, I was really blown away with him,” Shahi told People. “We met in the makeup trailer and we just got on instantly. We had the exact same taste in music. We had the same taste in whiskey and tequilas and I was really blown away by him just as a person and all I knew was that I wanted more.”
“And then I got an opportunity to act with him, and I will say, sitting across the other side of the camera with him was just a privilege,” she said. “You’re only as good as your scene partner. He’s amazing in the show.”
In Sex/Life, Shahi, 41, plays Billie Connelly, a married woman who can’t stop fantasising about her ex-boyfriend, Brad Simon (Demos). The show is based on the BB Easton novel, 44 Chapters About 4 Men.
The pair have been openly celebrating their love on social media. Shahi recently shared several photos of them spending time together.
“Not exactly sure how two people on opposite sides of the world could have more in common, were meant to meet, were meant to be together. But I do know I met my soulmate. I do know I found my forever,” she wrote on his birthday. “I do know I’ve never loved deeper, harder, more ferociously. I do know I’m overly grateful for him. I do know I’ve loved him for a thousand lifetimes before and will love him for a thousand lifetimes more. Happy birthday my baby ❤️.”
Shahi finalised her divorce from ex-husband Steve Howey in January this year. The exes share a son William, 10, and twins Violet and Knox, six. Shahi first filed for divorce in May last year, months before she started filming Sex/Life in Canada.
It’s unclear exactly when love bloomed for Shahi and Demos, but they made their Instagram debut in December 2020.
Demos recently told 9Honey Celebrity how the show offered him a “refreshing” look at a female perspective on desire and romance.
“[Romantic dramas] are a lot of the time being told from the male perspective,” he said. “So it’s refreshing that we have this show adapted from the book and incredible writers and all-female directors to tell an important side of the story. I’m definitely grateful I got to be a part of it.”

He explained what it was like to work with an intimacy coordinator in the filming process. “The environment they created for us was so safe,” he added. “We had an intimacy coordinator. Stacy [Rukeyser] made sure everyone had a voice and we would rehearse all the time. By the time you get there everyone knows what’s gonna happen, it’s like choreography.”
