Parenthood’s Peter Krause and Lauren Graham dating

Parenthood stars Laren Graham and Peter Krause, who play brother and sister on the show, have confirmed they are an item.

As longtime readers of this site know, I generally steer away from reporting on celebrity romances, better left to other media…

In the case of stars from the same show it’s a little different…. in case it affects the show, or at worst, results in someone actually leaving.

Parenthood stars Laren Graham and Peter Krause, who play brother and sister on the show, have confirmed they are an item.

“Nobody knew about it for a while, because we like to be at home, cooking and not going out,” says Graham.

“I’ve also been really protective of it, because it’s important that you can buy us as brother and sister on the show.

“I would like to be part of a family, however that looks,” she says. “Family is really important to me.”

So there you have it. Is it going to make you look at them in a whole new way?

I’m still getting my head around Dexter‘s Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter, now married.

And let’s not even talk about Sally Field and Dave Annable from Brothers and Sisters. Mother and son? Eww.

Thankfully Jessica Marais and James Stewart aren’t siblings on Packed to the Rafters. Just a tad more conventional.

  1. So much for the rumours flying that Lauren was back together with Matthew Perry.

    @Marie – Michael Vartan and Jennifer Garner breaking up did nothing to stop their on-screen chemistry on Alias!

  2. An interesting counter POV Scott Patterson, Lauren’s love interest on Gilmore Girls (also in the new NBC show The Event) recently did an interview where he doesn’t like romantic relationships with his co-stars because the show can suffer if things go bad. But again that’s the same for most work places regardless if you’re being watched by millions of viewers each week.

  3. @David Knox – Yes, it is very common – my point wasn’t that it doesn’t happen, but that it is not the best idea. I worked for a broadcaster for many years, and there were people hooking up, and breaking up and making up and it was more dramatic than the programs being made there!

  4. Hey, if they break up and things are tense and awkward between them, it’ll just make their playing of siblings more realistic!

    It’d be worse if they were playing lovers, a bad real-life breakup can end up ruining the characters. Happened on ER with Luka and Abby.

  5. I thought the Sally Fields thing was just a joke?? He’s engaged to someone else isn’t he? Must be true I saw it on the View lol!. Office romances are always a drama. I can think of another weird hookup that made people do the double-take!!

  6. ‘Anyone know if Lauren Graham has a sister?’

    No she’s an only child, bought up by her dad after her parents separated at 5yo. She does have some half siblings from both parents, including a sister or two from memory.


  7. The reason actors tend to end up with other actors, or sometimes their Director, is because they spend 16 hour days, six days a week, for 8 months at a time with them, and don’t really get much opportunity to meet anyone outside of the Industry.

    Anyone know if Lauren Graham has a sister?

  8. @dave – I think it’s just like any work place, how many date a coworker, granted its not in the public light but they did a good job to keep is so quite since rumor is they have been dating almost since Lauren joined the show.

    It would be very hard to right either of them out if the worst happened, they are 2 of the 4 main leads of the show.

    FYI the picture is from the NBC launch back in March.

  9. they certainly make a handsome couple!
    Re Jessica Marais and James Stewart – could get tricky on set if they break up. He would be written out quick sticks, i reckon. How unimaginative the stars are romantically, with so many fish in the ocean, they have to date so close to home!

  10. Thats really nice. Peter is my favourite actor on the show. If he is anythng like Adam he would be really cool to go out with. He also not bad looking for a 45 year old.

    Was that really true about Sally Field and David Annable. I thought that was just a rumour that went around that was denied.

  11. That Sally Field/Dave Annable story was just a rumour. Has since been debunked. He’s now married to Oddette Yustman (Cloverfield/October Road).

    Though Nip/Tuck’s Joely Richardson did openly date her on-screen son John Hensley a few years ago.

  12. It isn’t exactly news as many fans have known (suspected) this for months but it’s nice that Lauren made it official. I don’t have a problem with it, but I can see others might.

    Also on that couples list don’t forget True Blood with Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer recently getting married.
