Sorry, ladies, Canadian hunk – and the actor who will always be Captain Hammer to me – Nathan Fillion, is off the market. The dashing 44-year-old star of ABC’s Castle has found love with actress Krista Allen. Her name might not be familiar, but a quick check of IMDB shows that the 44-year-old actress has a lengthy list of guest appearances on shows including Two and a Half Men, Baywatch and, yes, a little show called Castle. Krista and Nathan met back in 2014, when – in a prime example of life imitating art – Krista played a B-movie actress. Pretty good casting for a woman who played “MILF” in 2009’s The Final Destination.
In addition to Krista’s numerous roles, she also was one of George Clooney’s many paramours. The pair were in a 2-year relationship after they met during the filming of Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, which marked George’s directorial debut, in 2002. Nathan has been attached to many a Hollywood starlet himself, including his Castle co-star Stana Katic.
The new couple have been seen together all over social media of late. Krista recently posted a photo on her Instagram account of the couple together at a Halloween party dressed as a satyr and a nymph (I’m sure you can figure who played which). Another recent photo was posted by Krista’s actress pal Dina Myer, better known (to me at least) as the redhead who made co-ed showering look more appealing (to my ex-husband) in the original Starship Troopers. Dina posted a selfie of herself with the happy couple on her Instagram account. Sources close to the couple told US Weekly, “Krista is super happy. She’s been kind of unlucky in love in the past and now she’s found this genuinely nice guy who treats her well.” Another source added, “They are having a great time together.”
I remembered Krista starring in a horrible movie back in 2001, Totally Blonde, which also marked the “acting” debut of one Michael Bublé. Despite the fact that I’ll never get those 90 minutes of my life back, I don’t begrudge the woman for her (obviously) great taste, and I hope they are happy. If she could talk Nathan into any kind of Dr. Horrible sequel, then I’m totally all in with this couple.
