ICYMI, Flight Attendant star Kaley Cuoco recently got a new boyfriend who also just so happens to be an über famous actor—at least, if you live and breathe Ozark on Netflix, which everyone obviously does. Yep, turns out Kaley is dating Tom Pelphrey, which the two lovebirds confirmed on Instagram with several cute photos.
So, what do we know about Kaley’s new boyfriend, Tom? Buckle in and prepare for the ultimate deep dive!
Like, this rescue pup takes up most of Tom’s Instagram account, including Valentine’s Day posts. Get ready for a ton of dog content, not sorry!
It should be noted that Kaley is also obsessed with rescue animals and has a bunch of dogs of her own.
Specifically, IMDb says he studied Shakespeare at the Globe Theatre in London, which, fancy! Tom told Collider back in 2020 that he got into acting thanks to a high school teacher.
You might recognize Tom from your grandmother watching endless episodes of CBS’s daytime soap Guiding Light. Turns out Tom played Jonathan Randall and won multiple (!!) Emmys for the role.
Kaley recently found out she has been nominated for an Emmy for The Flight Attendant season 2. And! If! That! Wasn’t! Enough! She recorded her reaction to hearing the news alongside Tom and even started to tear up after her name was announced. In the sweetest IG post, Kaley mentioned that her beau was also nominated for his guest role on Ozark. Here’s the vid, but be warned: it might make you emotional.
Tom uploaded his own post on the social media and wrote, “ALSO… CONGRATULATIONS TO MY FAVORITE ACTRESS!!! Such beautiful, brave work. Beyond grateful to share this with you today… @televisionacad #emmyawards @kaleycuoco.” Le sigh. To have a love like this!
Tom played Micky Deans in Tony Award–nominated End of the Rainbow and went on to star in Fool for Love with Sam Rockwell and Nina Arianda.
Aside from Ozark, you might also recognize Tom as Ward Meachum from Marvel’s Iron Fist. Not to mention Joseph Mankiewicz in David Fincher’s Mank. Like, he’s been busy! Here’s Tom chatting about Mank:
That’s it! You are now an expert on all things Tom Pelphrey, congrats.
