Zawe and Tom played a married couple on Broadway.
In 2019, the two played husband and wife in Betrayal, a drama that puts a critical lens to the end of a marriage.
A source close to the production told People that the two had “lovely” chemistry together. “They were very private publicly, but behind the scenes you could just see a lovely chemistry,” the source said. “There were twinkles in both of their eyes, and the entire company, including Charlie Cox, were all very close.”
Hiddleston and Ashton developed a close bond off-stage too. “And being Brits abroad, they would hang out frequently. Zawe and Tom showed great affection for each other, and you could also see that coming off slightly in their onstage performance,” the insider said. “Tom has always been a very, very private person. Behind the scenes, they would just privately be affectionate and hugging and sitting next to each other and holding hands.”
