Zelda Williams, the daughter of the late Robin Williams, is one of the stars in the new Lifetime movie Girl in the Box. At the time of her father’s death, she was dating Australian actor Jackson Heywood. Now, the actress is single.
Heywood revealed that the two split in a June 2016 interview with the Australian Daily Telegraph. “We get along just fine, she’s great. I’m very single at the moment,” Heywood said. “I’m kind of just happy to be single right now. I had a wonderful relationship for a long time, and I don’t need to try and settle for anything less until I find something I really want.”
in 2014, The Daily Mail reported that they were a couple, although they had been seen before together. After Robin Williams died, Heywood thanked fans for their support. “Thank you everyone for your support. Every heart counts,” he tweeted.
If the 27-year-old Williams is dating anyone now, she has not said so publicly. She does speak about being bisexual though. In 2015, she revealed the news on Twitter.
She also discussed her sexuality on Chelsea Handler’s Netflix show, explaining why she has decided to be open about it.
“For me, there’s a lot of erasure of bisexuality,” Williams explained. “I think a lot of people — especially in women — they tend to have really bad responses to it. They think you can’t have a monogamous relationship. By the way, it doesn’t really matter if you want to be not-monogamous or not. Your sexuality doesn’t really dictate that. Being bisexual doesn’t mean I’m suddenly willy-nilly running around.”
In addition to starring in Girl in the Box, Williams starred on the first season of Freeform’s Dead of Summer.
