The actor has been married since 2010 and no split announcements have been made
Lily James and married actor Dominic West surprised onlookers when they were spotted kissing in public while dining at al fresco in Rome on Sunday.
The two didn’t mind the attention as they were spotted at the restaurant and while they were taking a ride in an electric scooter for sightseeing.
Dominic West is probably most known for playing Noah Solloway in the Showtime drama, The Affair, which is about the emotional effects that bud from an extramarital affair between his character and a younger woman who catches his fancy named Alison Bailey (played by Ruth Wilson).
West, 50, has been married to Irish landscape designer and aristocrat Catherine FitzGerald since 2010 and has four children together. He also has a 22 year-old daughter named Martha with former girlfriend Polly Astor.
As for Lily, 31, it was revealed that she split from Doctor Who star Matt Smith, 37, after failing to rekindle their on-off relationship and have now split for good.
Allegedly, the couple has been staying at the same luxury hotel, Hotel De La Ville, bear the the city’s famous Spanish Steps.
A female friend of his wife reportedly told Mail Online: “Catherine has seen the pictures. She’s devastated. Catherine has been trying to speak with Dominic but he’s not answering his phone. She thought they had a good marriage, now it’s probably over. That’s how she feels. The two of them need to speak but at the moment, she’s lost for words.”
West had given his honest opinion on monogamy in the past, saying, “I supposed people suspect the conventions that we have agreed upon in society, that a man and woman can stay together for life without cheating – it’s not the necessarily natural way to be, therefore, there will always be adultery and intrigue about it.”
