Melissa Roxburgh is a Canadian-American actress known for her roles in Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules (2011) and Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days (2012), as Ensign Syl in the film Star Trek Beyond (2016), as Olivia Tanis in The Marine 4: Moving Target, and as Michaela Stone in the NBC/Netflix science fiction drama series Manifest.
In Manifest, the most recent one, she has been playing Michaela Stone since Manifest’s pilot episode way back in September 2018. With a new season premiering on 4 November 2022, fans have been wondering if she also has been able to have relationships in real life amidst her busy career. Here’s what we know.
Who Is Melissa Roxburgh’s Boyfriend In 2022?
Fans really loved the on-screen chemistry between Melissa Roxburgh’s character Michaela “Mick” Stone and J. R. Ramirez’s Jared Vasquez. These actors turned out to be so good together as a pair. But did you know that they were actually going out at the time?
Even PageSix, in 2020, reported that Melissa and J.R. were actually romancing off-screen.
So, is the Cuban-American actor Melissa’s boyfriend even in 2022?
In January 2022, a Reddit thread assumed that the couple separated sometime in 2021. However, neither Melissa nor J.R has ever publicly acknowledged their relationship. So, the state of their relationship remained kind of a mystery until November 2022.
Until the time of this writing, they also followed one another on Instagram. Also, there was no hint of any new girlfriends on J.R.’s IG @jr8ramirez and Melissa also did not in any way hint if she was seeing some other guy.
Melissa mostly keeps her dating life private.
While J.R. during the talks about Manifest’s fourth and final season, in an interview with Tudum, said that he felt like his Manifest character was at peace with his role in the love triangle between Jared, Melissa’s character Michaela, and Zeke.
Melissa Roxburgh’s Past Relationships
Before also getting personal with J.R. in the real life, Melissa Roxburgh dated Canadian actor Andrew Jenkins. A scroll through her social media back in time tells us that she was still together with Andrew around 2017. She had met him on the set of their film Lost Solace in 2016.
Reportedly, Melissa, at the time, used to occasionally make coy posts about him. But then, they also say that the two also kept things mostly on the down-low, leaving fans to speculate on their own as to when their relationship ended. As to our understanding, it was maybe before 2020.
Andrew has appeared on stage, as well as in numerous film and television roles. He has worked with Oscar Winner Holly Hunter and Oscar Nominee Matt Dillon. The great on-screen work he did, has earned him accolades like two nominations for Canada’s prestigious LEO Award (for his performances in Stormworld and Lost Solace), as well as several nominations for the Young Artist Awards, including a win for his recurring guest spot on Tower Prep.
Since Melissa, Andrew also seems to have moved on with this beautiful woman called Marissa.
