During Season 1 of Stranger Things, the storyline I was most invested in — you know, apart from the telekinetic preteen and demanding justice for Barb — was Nancy and Jonathan's will they/won't they love story. While we know how that turned out on-screen, what was happening between the actors who play them off-screen was even more exciting. Natalia Dyer and Charlie Heaton are all booed up IRL. Of course, when I learned that, I couldn't help but wonder about Natalia Dyer and Charlie Heaton's astrological compatibility. Dyer was born Jan. 13, under the sign of Capricorn, and Heaton’s birthday is Feb. 6, making him an Aquarius. These are not two signs you's typically put together, but hey, stranger things have happened.
Sorry! I know that was terrible, but before I show myself out, here's a quick rundown of their relationship timeline in case you haven't been following along. Rumors that these two were more than just friendly co-stars began in October 2016, when they started appearing in one another's social media profiles while traveling together with friends in Spain. The rumors of their courtship persisted and were seemingly confirmed in October 2017, when the two were spotted holding hands while walking in New York City, and then sharing some serious PDA in Paris two months later.
They made things official in true Hollywood style by attending 2017 Fashion Awards red carpet in London together that December. The two have been regularly seen together ever since, but they rarely talk about their relationship publicly, with a few notable exceptions. In February 2019, Heaton opened up to V Man about working with his partner on Stranger Things. "Because we work in the same industry and have had similar trajectories, we've gone through it together. Sharing that does bring you closer. They understand something that maybe no one else would. You go into high-pressure situations together but you can share those insecurities or whatever they are. The great, happy times, too...Really f*cking sweet!,” he told the publication.
In an interview with Refinery 29, Dyer also offered a brief glimpse into her relationship, and how working with a SO can be a real bonding experience. “It’s an interesting thing to work with somebody who you go home with,” she said, of her long days filming with Heaton. “It’s always really fun. We’re really comfortable with each other, so we can play and feel more free, and we can talk about it before,” Dyer shared, although she was also quick to reiterate that her private life is just that: private. “That’s something important to me — with my family, with my friends, I really like to keep it for me,” she said.
Since these two aren’t talking — and honestly I don’t blame them — we’ll have to look to the stars for answers. Here is what we can divine about their relationship dynamic based on their astrological compatibility.
