Everything You Need to Know About Chord Overstreet, aka Emma Watson's New Boyfriend
It’s been three years since Glee ended its six-season run on Fox, so if you’re struggling to remember the gorgeousness that is Chord Overstreet, then welcome to the club.
Earlier this week, news broke about the actor's relationship with Harry Potter alum Emma Watson after they were spotted holding hands during an afternoon stroll. Although we’ve seen every episode of the hit musical series (multiple times), we’d be lying if we didn’t say that we need a refresher on the man who captured Hermione’s heart. Here, everything you need to know about Watson’s new beau.
1. He starred in ‘Glee.’
Overstreet played Sam Evans on the Fox series from 2010 to 2015. You probably remember him as the transfer student who joined the football team and glee club.
2. He’s a solo artist.
Since then, the actor has released a plethora of original songs that are available for your listening pleasure on YouTube.
3. He’s the son of a country music legend.
The 29-year-old’s dad just so happens to be singer-songwriter Paul Overstreet, who is a former member of the musical trio S-K-O. The “Daddy’s Come Around” singer named Chord after his passion for music.
4. He’s a former model.
Overstreet modeled for Hollister and Gap when he was a teenager, so yeah, bring on the shirtless pics.
5. He previously dated actress Brooke Butler.
The couple started dating in 2015 and ended their relationship in October 2016. Butler is known for her roles in Wedding Wonderland (2017), The Sand (2015) and All Cheerleaders Die (2013).
Oh, how we’ve missed that head of hair. Welcome back, Chord.
