What else has Luke Newton acted in?

Luke Newton is most well known for his role as Colin Bridgerton in the Netflix hit, but this isn’t his inaugural role. He has also starred in other television series, including The Cut, Sadie J, Mr Selfridge, Doctors, The Lodge, and more. 

The actor has previously spoken about his growing fame since being cast in Bridgerton, telling Gentleman’s Journal, “When I’m out, friends will lean in and whisper; ‘that person over there, they’ve recognised you.'”

“But I don’t believe them most of the time. When it does happen, though, it’s really interesting — because they always call me by my character’s name. They’ll ask; are you Colin Bridgerton?

Who is Luke Newton’s girlfriend?

While he has yet to confirm his new romance officially, it has been rumoured that Luke Newton’s girlfriend is 23-year-old model Antonia Roumelioti. 

The couple were first spotted together holding hands as they attended the Bridgerton London premiere afterparty in June 2024. While their joint appearance surprised many fans, Antonia was previously spotted attending the series’ New York premiere. 

According to The Mirror, Luke and Antonia were also spotted sunbathing together in April 2024 at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles.

“Luke and Antonia get on really well and are having a great time together. They have not yet gone public as it is still early days, but they have grown very close and of course, their friends and family know,” a source told the publication. 

Prior to his rumoured romance with Antonia, Luke was most recently linked to stage actor and singer Jade Louise Davies between 2019 and 2023.

Jade is best known as a performer with the musical theatre group, Welsh of the West End. The talented singer even once made a romantic photo album of some of her and Luke’s favourite moments together.

Offering a rare glimpse into his relationship, Luke told POPSUGAR in 2021, “She’s got an amazing memory, much better than mine.”

“So it’s kind of nice for me to look back and go, ‘Oh, that’s what we were doing that day,’ rather than just remembering the photo,” he said.
