Marie Avgeropoulos is a talented Canadian actress who gained the limelight following her portrayal of Octavia Blake in The CW sci-fi series The 100 (2014 – 2020). In addition, she has also made quite the name for her performances in 50/50 (2011), Cult (2013), Tracers (2015), and Jiu Jitsu (2020).
As a well-established actress with millions of fan-following on social media, it isn’t that odd that her fans want to learn more about her, including her love life and whom she is currently dating.
Marie Avgeropoulos Is Dating a Fellow Canadian Actor
Avgeropoulos is currently in a blissful relationship with Alain Moussi, a Canadian actor and stunts man. They have been dating for over two years as of this writing.
It is believed that the boyfriend-girlfriend duo first met each other on the sets of the 2020 movie, Jiu Jitsu — in which Avgeropoulos played Myra and Moussi played Jake. It seems they seemingly fell in love and began dating on July 6, 2019.
Initially, they kept their togetherness a secret in front of the media and the public. However, almost a year later, they decided to spill the beans. The very first time the actress mentioned her now-partner on her social media was on January 17, 2020, when she posted a clip of him teaching her how to perform fights for the Jiu Jitsu movie.
On her 34th birthday, June 17, she formally introduced her partner to the world when she posted a picture alongside him and mentioned him in the caption by writing, “Birthday field hangouts = boyfriend shout outs @alainmoussi.”
Since then, the 5 feet 5 inches tall actress has been usually flaunting pictures alongside her boyfriend. Much like Avgeropoulos, Moussi has also been sharing photos from their vacations on his Instagram handle.
Recently, on July 6, 2021, the couple celebrated their two years dating anniversary. On that occasion, Moussi took to his Instagram handle to share a picture and captioned it with some nice words.
Going by that, it looks as if they have developed a great bond and their bond will continue to become stronger as the days pass by.

The Thunder Bay, Ontario native was previously in a relationship before her romance with her now-boyfriend blossomed. However, the name of her former boyfriend is still unknown.
While she was in a relationship with her unidentified partner, it was reported that she was charged for assaulting her boyfriend.
