The highly anticipated third season of Girls5eva has officially premiered on Netflix, and the hilarious new episodes feature the familiar faces of the cast that you know and love. But the debut Netflix season also includes some supporting characters that are brand-new to the series, including Thomas Doherty as the wildly popular British pop singer Gray Holland.

In the second episode of season 3, Gloria meets Gray in the restaurant Macaroni Rascal's while on tour. She's attempting to save an injured squirrel and needs a bottle of ketchup, prompting her to approach a kind, lonely trucker. Being an international superstar, Gray disguises himself as a trucker in order to be able to peacefully exist in public. Thus begins a beautiful friendship between Gloria and "Mad Dog."

For some viewers, this might be your first encounter with the handsome Scottish actor, but others have likely been crushing on him for quite some time. After seeing him play a worldwide pop sensation in Girls5eva, you are probably looking to find out more about Thomas Doherty, including his age, relationship status, and so much more!

Thomas Doherty age and height

Thomas Doherty was born on April 21, 1995, making him 28 years old as of the release of Girls5eva season 3 in March 2024. He will turn 29 years old in April 2024. Although he plays a Brit in the Netflix comedy series, in real life, he was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. He stands at 6 feet tall, making him taller than all four leading actresses. He's about a foot taller than his onscreen bestie Paula Pell!

Yes, he really sings!

Although he's not currently releasing music like his Harry Styles-esque character Gray Holland, Doherty really sings and provided his vocals for the series. The actor got his start in the British Disney Channel musical series The Lodge and also appeared in the channel's musical fantasy films Descendants 2 and Descendants 3, starring and singing as Harry Hook. He also sang while appearing in the 2020 Hulu series High Fidelity.

He's been dating Yasmin Wijnaldum since 2021

Sorry, everyone! Doherty isn't single. In 2021, he started dating Dutch model Yasmin Wijnaldum, who's currently 25 years old. While the pair have kept their relationship private, they tend to share snaps of each other on their respective Instagram accounts from time to time, such as cute birthday posts and normal couple pictures that give an insight into their life together.

Of course, Descendants fans know that prior to dating Wijnaldum, Doherty was dating his costar Dove Cameron from 2016 to 2020. The couple called it quits back in October 2020, as Cameron announced that December saying that the pair made the difficult decision to end their relationship but remained friends.

He has 4 million Instagram followers (and counting)

If you aren't already following Doherty on Instagram, you're going to want to go ahead and give him a follow. The actor currently boasts 4 million followers on his account @thomasadoherty, though that number will likely continue to skyrocket as he achieves more success in his career.

As a Dior ambassador, he's often sharing snaps from his campaigns with the brand, including their skincare line, but when he's not showing off his modeling skills, he's sharing bits and pieces of his life in photo dumps. He's still friends with his Gossip Girl castmates, and they pop up from time to time in his posts.
