James Norton and Imogen Poots are engaged.
The ‘War Peace’ actor reportedly popped the question to the 32-year-old actress after four years together and they couldn’t be happier to move on to the next stage of their lives together.
A source told the Daily Mail’s Eden Confidential column: “They are delighted with their engagement and have only told close friends and family. Imogen was totally surprised and can’t wait to be Mrs. Norton.”
In 2020, the ‘Father’ actress moved into James’ home in Peckham, south London, but the couple are now looking for a new home.
The insider added: “They are looking for a matrimonial home in upscale locations in East London.”
The 36-year-old actor – who is one of the names in the frame to be the next James Bond – has previously admitted that playing the father of a terminally ill baby boy in ‘Nowhere Special’ has made him “brooding”. “.
He said last summer: “I got moody.
“My girlfriend definitely noticed that I was getting a little more moody.
“It coincided with my age; becoming an uncle and then playing that role and having such a deep connection with Daniel. Yeah, I was coming home and talking about having kids. I think she was pretty nice about it .”
However, the ‘McMafia’ star admitted having a child wouldn’t be easy because of her and Imogen’s careers, acknowledging that it’s a “travelling, dynamic life that actors lead”.
James spent a lot of time away from set with his young co-star, Daniel Lamont – who was only four at the time – and his family in order to gain the youngster’s trust.
He said: “We’d mess around in the garden. Him on a bike and me on a skateboard – not so good for a 35-year-old with early back problems.”
