Ben Lawson is starring in the Netflix series Firefly Lane as Johnny Ryan. He has made a career of playing supporting but noteworthy roles and that continued with the new Netflix show. And for those wondering about the dating life of the handsome Aussie, we did find one beautiful girlfriend.
Third of five boys born to his parents, Ben Lawson is a 41-year-old actor from Brisbane, Australia. While he did not think of becoming an actor from a young age, he did however have an interest in the business. And like most Aussie actors Ben got his big break in a soap opera called Neighbors where he played Frazer Yeats for over two years.
After a few successful endeavors in Australia, Ben started appearing in Hollywood productions. One of his earliest roles was in No Strings Attached and then in the later years came a slew of Netflix appearances. Before getting into his latest outing as Johnny Ryan, let’s dig into the relationship history of Ben Lawson with his girlfriend Maile.

Ben Lawson played a charming character in the Netflix series Firefly Lane. He was a romantic partner for both leading ladies and most ladies watching the show were also charmed by the Aussie accent and Ben’s extremely well-groomed face. Even Ben from the 80s was a great-looking man, with long hair and a beard.
Soon after the show premiered there was interest in the romantic life of the actor. But considering most of the Instagram posts on Ben’s page are of him goofing around and having fun with his family, there was not much reporting on the girlfriend of Ben Lawson.
We dug deep into his social media and through our research found a beautiful lady the actor dated in the past. An artist by the name of Maile first appeared on Ben’s Instagram on 12 January 2018. They were wearing funny and depressing jumpers while sitting on a couch and playing a video game.
Maile is an LA-based oil painter and illusionist and goes by the name Art Baby 69. She also works with body tattoos and her Instagram page is filled with cool designs and great drawings of herself as well as her friends and clients. She does have a picture of Ben’s friend on her social media page but not of any featuring herself and Ben together.
Ben has numerous pictures of the couple together. The second picture he shared of the duo was during Valentine’s Day in 2018. He captioned the picture, “Thanks for not killing me yet,” and the picture showed Maile with her hands around Ben’s neck.
From meeting Tommy Wiseau to raising their dogs together to doing makeup together, there are ample proofs to show Ben and Maile were dating. The last picture Ben posted of his then-girlfriend Maile was on 17 May 2018 where he was wishing her a happy birthday.
Since then we have not seen any mention of Maile on Ben’s social media. And neither has Maile spoken about their relationship. It appears both of them have moved on from their relationship. We are certain Maile was Ben Lawson’s girlfriend but it does appear he is single right now.
