7 things you need to know about the thirst trap that is Richard Madden

We're obsessed, clearly.

Richard Madden has been around for a while now, however recently with the popularity of Bodyguard on BBC (it was recently released onto Netflix), the actor is having a moment.

A big moment.

We wanted to find out a little bit more about the gorgeous Scottish man, so we did a little digging and found these bits out:

His accent is real

If you've wondered whether Richard's accent in the Bodyguard is real, it most certainly is.

He grew up in Elderslie, Renfrewshire, just outside the city of Glasgow, and has younger and older sisters. His mam's name is Pat and she's a classroom assistant, while his dad is called Richard and he's a firefighter.

He supposedly dated Laura Whitmore

Yep, Laura Whitmore was apparently linked to Richard several years ago. What happened in their romance and for how long they went out, we don't know... but we do know that we're maybe, kinda, sorta a bit jealous?

He has a long list of celeb ladies

They include Jenna Coleman, Suki Waterhouse and most recently, Ellie Bamber (they broke up mid-2018, so he's newly single, ladies).

He's currently living in LA with Brandon Flynn

Uh huh! He was spotted this week with his housemate, 13 Reasons Why's Brandon Flynn. The pair were seen making their way back from a super market (where they were buying marijuana cigarettes).

Brandon is also known for dating Sam Smith not so long ago.

He was the Prince in the live action remake of Cinderella

We only realised this yesterday! In the 2015 live action remake of Cinderella, Richard played Prince Kit.

He was all decked out in royal clothing and danced the night away with Cinderella - who was played by Lily James.

He could be the next James Bond

Rumour has it that he's been compared to Sean Connery and is reported to have been offered the role of James Bond to succeed Daniel Craig. He has said that he is "flattered and thankful" to be considered for the role.
