Barry Keoghan, the award-winning 31-year-old actor from Saltburn, is about to make a giant leap in his career—and his personal life. The latest reports detailed about how Keoghan is jetting off from the UK to the sun-drenched boulevards of Los Angeles, which is deemed a significant platform for his acting blossoming.

The move comes on the heels of his critically lauded performance in Emerald Fennell's crackling psychological thriller, which is heralding the next chapter of his evolving Hollywood career. His move was not only career-based but it also implies another step ahead in the relationship of the 25-year-old actor with American actress and singer Sabrina Carpenter, 24.

The couple, which first met headlines as a romantic couple since late December last year, is reportedly looking forward to taking the relationship to the next level amid respective tight schedules. A source close to Keoghan said: "Barry is in high demand and Los Angeles is the place to be.

He's also keen to spend as much time with Sabrina as possible with both of them being so busy with their work commitments." And as he continues with his increased time across the pond, he's managed to keep close ties with his family, in touch with them through telephone calls.

Keoghan and Carpenter's Public Debut

Keoghan and Carpenter had first publicly confirmed their relationship earlier in the month when they walked their first red carpet together as a couple. However, while they had walked separate red carpets when they arrived, after the awards show, the pair could be seen cuddled up together at W Magazine's star-studded Grammy after-party.

It follows his split from long-term partner Alyson Kierans last year with whom he shares a son born in August 2022. The couple seems to be in love. Not only that, Keoghan even joked that Sabrina had been seen at Melbourne Airport in what seemed to be his Harvard sweatshirt upon her arrival for opening for Taylor Swift's Australian tour.

This subtle, yet telling gesture certainly set the internet alight with the fans quick to link the garment back to Keoghan's own wardrobe, as seen through his Instagram posts. Their relationship looks to have started off with the Paris Fashion Week last September and to have further solidified with shared moments like one of a charming date at an art gallery in January in which a happy onlooker described them as "cute" together, even sharing a kiss.

Keoghan's move to Los Angeles does not only stand as a great stride in his acting career but its progress goes hand in hand with his personal life as he and Carpenter brace up their relatively young relationship under the scrutiny of the public.
