Costar Jon Hamm says the two lovebirds had no clue where it was heading but to others their on-set chemistry was unmistakable
Alexis Bledel hasn't been so open about her relationship with Vincent Kartheiser and things had been going on within a low profile since the couple first met on the set of Mad Men in 2012. But after all this time, they have started to come out of the fog and Kartheiser has recently been opening up about fiance Alexis Bledel and explaining how they started dating by the end of Season 5. The 34 year old actor told Vulture that "We were completely professional. We never saw each other out. We never—it was nothing, it was just work."
They both never saw it coming and especially Kartheiser had no clue that it was heading this way but as costar Jon Hamm puts it, the two had always shared a special chemistry while on set. Talking about the two he said that "I did know he liked her from a very early point. I was a supporter of that union."
"Honestly, they're a really good match," creator Matthew Weiner added. "They're both very down to earth, with a sense of responsibility and strong family ties. And they've been acting since before they can remember, which makes for a very special personality. It's not just that I thought they would look cute together. Even with all of Alexis's amazing qualities, I think that if she had not been such a good actress, he would not have been interested."
The news was broken to the world by Us in exclusivity in March last year and many had been takne aback with their engagement announcement since the few months of dating had been kept more mum than open.
