Why do you believe some actors get partnered in the same movies over and over? It’s this inexplicable spark between them, which we like to refer to as “chemistry,” that makes them appear to be extremely compatible. Consider this: how do you tell whether a pair has excellent chemistry? Is it when a star-studded ensemble includes your favorite actor? Or when there’s a compelling storyline? Chemistry does not have to be romantic; you can sense it even with someone you don’t really like. And it isn’t always about aesthetics, because chemistry may exist between two individuals who are very different in terms of beauty. No matter what genre you’re watching, the chemistry between the two protagonists is what keeps or loses the audience’s interest. Needless to say, the chemistry between the two protagonists determines the success of a rom-com. So we at Animated Times thought why not compile a list of 5 TV Acting Duos that have undeniable chemistry, making fans believe they must have met before. Scroll down to see a list of stars from all eras whose on-screen connection is obvious.

5. Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer as Eve and Villanelle on Killing Eve:


Sandra and Jodie initially met at the chemistry reading for Killing Eve. Sandra recalled the occasion, stating, “I could see we had a terrific rapport. I had a feeling. It was the way we were listening together and how I could sense how she was accepting everything I was offering her and how she would react. In some respects, I believe that chemistry between performers is about listening. ”

2. Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe as Jamie and Claire on Outlander:


Caitriona and Sam initially met at their Outlander chemistry test. Caitriona described their bond as “instantaneous,” and while she was anxious before the audition, Sam helped put her at ease. Before heading to Scotland to begin production, Sam and Caitriona went for a “long stroll in Hyde Park” to get to know one another and talk about their roles.

3. Phoebe Dynevor and Regé-Jean Page as Daphne and Simon on Bridgerton:


Julie Anne Robinson, the director, recalls Phoebe and Regé meeting for the first time during tryouts, stating, “We had this beautiful audition process with Shonda [Rhimes] where we put them together and I was able to direct them. Regé’s decision had already been made, but Phoebe came in and read it. She was amazing and landed the part. ” Phoebe stated that when she first met Regé, she felt, “He was the ideal Simon, in every way. He’s courteous, gentlemanly, and all the other qualities that Simon possesses. ”

4. Andy Samberg and Melissa Fumero as Jake and Amy on Brooklyn Nine-Nine:


Dan Goor, the show’s creator, remembers being in the casting room when Melissa met Andy, and he claimed Melissa was the only one who improvised extremely well with Andy during the chemistry reading. Dan also stated that at the time, everyone was “quite certain” that Jake and Amy would become a popular pair. In fact, Jake and Amy’s chemistry was tested “through the roof” during a later screening for an audience before the series debut.

5. Iain De Caestecker and Elizabeth Henstridge as Fitz and Simmons on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 


Lain first met Elizabeth at her last audition for Simmons at Disney. Elizabeth recalled the day, noting that Iain was the “only Fitz” she hadn’t run lines with before their chemistry exam. Elizabeth’s first question after booking the part was, “Who is Fitz?” since she thought it would be Iain.
