In a world filled with superhero movies and TV shows comes Jupiter’s Legacy on Netflix is the newest addition to the genre. Andrew Horton is leading the show as Brandon Sampson/The Paragon in the show. It is a big break for the University of Exeter alumni and sure to bring whole lot of attention of the actor. So, for those wondering, he handsome hunk is taken, he has a girlfriend, someone he has dated for over half a decade now.
A resident of the UK Andrew fell in love with acting a little later on in his life. As he grew older he understood that the life of an actor is pretty hit and miss so he wanted to exhaust some other avenues before opening up to the possibility of acting. After high school, he waited for a few months and then decided he needed to take the leap and it was the right decision for his life.
The actor enrolled in University of Exeter, their drama program was prideful of being a actor oriented program. So, with practical orientation the actor got the training he needed and soon he started appearing in theatre plays. But the University also holds a special place in the actor’s heart as it helped change his life, both in terms of career and his personal life. Here we will further discuss Andrew Horton, his career, and especially the relationship with his girlfriend.

The British actor chose the path of an actor, while initially he did not want to be a trained actor from a university, he changed his mind soon after. After high school little time passed and he was at University of Exeter, enrolled in their drama program. He did not know at that point but the training was going to be paramount for his success in his personal and professional life.
That training paid off when he was hired to appear in the Netflix show Jupiter’s Legacy in 2019. While his career has only started out, the actor seems secure with where he is in life. Andrew has a good gig at Netflix, a healthy family life, and long time girlfriend who loves him. And as we all know, happiness and success everything starts out at home.
Where did Andrew Horton Meet His Girlfriend?
The reason we have been talking about Andrew’s time at University of Exeter is because the actor met his girlfriend while he was studying there. He graduated in 2014 but before that Andrew was dating his partner while they were together studying at the university. It is one of the reasons that has led to Andrew to look fondly upon his time at Exeter.
During a recent interview with his former university, the actor was asked about the importance the educational institute in his life. He went on to explain the place was extremely impactful in his life, from learning practically to getting the confidence to perform on stage, he mentioned it all. Andrew also mentioned he made “lifelong friends” at the university while also meeting his girlfriend there.
He said, “You know the acting proponents within the course was hugely helpful, in sort of building up my confidence. I was always a person who wanted to go to drama school, but didn’t want to go straight out of college because I wanted a that safety net because acting is a very you know hit and miss career and you know i wanted some more life experience.”
“[That] Exeter um certainly gave me and um you know it’s definitely uh one of the best decisions of my life to go to Exeter. And you know i’ve made lifelong friends, my girlfriend there’s my family also went to Exeter. My older brother and my my cousin were at Exeter as well, so, you know it’s a good place for us,” the actor explained.
So counting the years, the actor and his girlfriend have been together for at least 6 years. He graduated in 2014 and if they met during the time at Exeter, that means somewhere between 6 to 8 years of relationship seems plausible. While the actor has not posted about his girlfriend on social media, there are some pictures on his Instagram that look like a close person took those.
Still, we do not have a name of his girlfriend but as the actor himself confirmed during his interview, he is currently in a relationship. Maybe after hundreds of thousands of fans flock to his Instagram page after seeing him in Jupiter’s Legacy, the actor will probably introduce his girlfriend to the world.
