A look at Charlie Cox’s Previous Relationships
Charlie and Samantha met when Charlie was 32 years old, so let’s look back at his previous relationships, which include many famous women.
Before Samantha, he dated Janet Montgomery, a British actress, for one year. They met at the Bowery Hotel in New York when Charlie was doing Boardwalk Empire, and Janet was meeting with her agent.

There were rumors that Janet did try to get back with Charlie after they had broken up, but this has not been confirmed. Janet is currently single.
A few years before Janet, in 2008, Charlie also dated Kate Mara, his co-star on Stone of Destiny. The couple dated for one year and were often seen on the red carpet and at fundraisers.
It is thought that Kate dumped Charlie after he dropped the Lombardi Trophy, one of the most precious football trophies of all time, and caught it with his steel-capped boot, which put a dent in it.
Kate is now happily married to Bill Elliot star Jamie Bell, who she acted with in Fantastic Four.
In 2004, Charlie also dated his American Merchant of Venice co-star, Lynn Collins, who was five years older than him. The relationship didn’t last long, and Lynn later married fellow actor Steven Strait. Since the break-up was amicable, Lynn and Charlie have maintained a great relationship.
