Back in 2021, The Kissing Booth 3 arrived on Netflix and has quickly caught the attention of subscribers who had been anticipating the third and final film in the rom-com trilogy. But in 2023, one of its stars is again the lead of the hottest movie of the summer.
The Kissing Booth 2‘s breakout scene-stealer Taylor Zakhar Perez stars alongside Purple Hearts favorite Nicholas Galitzine in the Amazon Prime Video blockbuster Red, White & Royal Blue. The Netflix heartthrobs headline the romantic comedy as Alex and Prince Henry, a pair of enemies turned lovers with the power to make history.
In the last two Kissing Booth movies, Zakhar Perez plays Marco. Although Marco was turned down by Elle in the sequel, the closing sequence of the film teased he wasn’t about to give up on Elle easily helping to pave the way for his return in The Kissing Booth 3. Let’s just say that Marco makes quite the impression on Elle again and is just as charming we remembered him to be.
The same could be said about the actor behind the character, who once again wowed audiences in his latest movie… while also setting viewers’ hearts aflutter and leaving them curious to know if the young actor is off the market. Curious to know if Taylor Zakhar Perez has a special someone in his life at the moment? We’ve got you covered!
Who is Taylor Zakhar Perez dating?
So is Taylor Zakhar Perez single or taken? Well, the short answer is that we don’t quite know the relationship status of The Kissing Booth and Red, White & Royal Blue star. He’s constantly been linked with his co-stars, such as Joey King, but the talented actor remains private.
Following the release of The Kissing Booth 2, Perez was rumored to be in a relationship with his costar Maisie Richardson-Sellers. However, those rumors have since been disproved as Richardson-Sellers is in a relationship with LA soul singer CLAY.
Because Perez keeps a lower profile when it comes to his personal life on social media, it’s unclear if the actor is currently in a relationship. Following his role in the queer rom-com Red, White & Royal Blue, viewers have been curious about who he might be dating. Zakhar Perez hasn’t publicly commented on his sexuality, which should be respected.
He’s spoken about wanting to represent the queer community accurately with his portrayal of Alex Claremont-Diaz, but as he also revealed to Refinery29, he’s been cognizant of keeping parts of his life out of the public eye for his own mental health.
"“Since I did my first film for Netflix [The Kissing Booth 2], I realized that for my mental health, I knew I had to have a public presence, but that didn’t mean I always had to engage with the public.”"
Judging by his social media activity, it seems Perez might be single as of August 2023 as he appeared to fly solo during his summer travels and has not posted a single photo with a potential special someone anywhere on his Instagram feed. It’s possible he could just be keeping a potential relationship on the down-low, but all signs seem to suggest Perez is single.
All three of The Kissing Booth movies are streaming now on Netflix.
