Emily Thorne and Daniel Grayson had tumultuous relationship on Revenge.
In the mid-season finale, Daniel died saving Emily from Agent Taylor. After being shot multiple times, his life ended heroically in her arms.
In real life, Emily VanCamp and Joshua Bowman have what seems to be a drama-less and private romance they started in January of 2012.
Here’s what you should know about the couple.
1. Josh Said Daniel ‘Never Loved Anyone as Much’ as He Loved Emily
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Bowman, said:
The person that Daniel really loved was Emily. He never loved anyone as much as he loved her. That was his true love and it was so fitting for him to die in her arms.
The actor, who was on the show for all its four seasons, approved of the way Daniel died.
He told the magazine, “We thought it was very important to have him be redeemed and have some sort of heroic last act for Emily. We thought that would bring the character full circle considering where he’s come from. We’d lead him right back to where he was in season 1. By having him save Emily and sacrifice himself, it was the perfect, fitting end for the character.”
The day after the episode aired, VanCamp tweeted this accolade to her boyfriend and costar:

The paparazzi seem to catch them engaging in PDA pretty frequently.
When GQ asked her what she thought about that, she said, “I don’t really ever talk about that part of my life, but I’m also not going to stop living my life. I want to live happily. And if I love a person, I’m not going to be ashamed and hide it.”
3. She Doesn’t Talk About Him in Interviews

She told Elle Canada:
Josh and I keep it all very separate. I barely talk about him in interviews, to be honest. It’s just really funny in the moments when we’re playing these absolutely absurd things. I call him ‘wife-beater Daniel.’ It’s hard for my family to watch—it’s also hard for them to see me in that light. But we’re actors. None of that lives in any of us. Thank God!
However, the actress did dish about her readiness to have children.
She told Elle Canada, “It never seemed tangible, but my sister just had a baby—beautiful little Ivy—and my sister Alison is having a baby boy. Suddenly, it’s like that part of my life is real…I find myself dreaming about it all the time. In your late 20s, you start to realize you can’t call yourself a baby anymore.”

It was rumored that Bowman was dating Cyrus after they costarred in 2012’s So Undercover.
The actor denies the union, and told GQ, “Well, it definitely wasn’t a relationship. We are mates and we did a movie together. She’s a very nice girl. There’s really nothing else that can be said.”
Whether it’s true or not, the rumor doesn’t seem to sit well with Van Camp, who tweeted:
Hey Miley..your mouth wants its tongue back. seriously. And Bieber.. you have legs. Goodness! Catching up on pop culture and i’m horrified.

5. Josh Likes Her in Fish Guts
— Emily VanCamp (@EmilyVanCamp) December 30, 2013
VanCamp knew she had found her soulmate during their fishing trip.
In an interview with Women’s Health, she explained, “I was there in my baseball cap and these crappy fishing clothes. And I remember thinking, This is when I feel 100 percent comfortable, in these dirty clothes with fish guts all over them.”
