Crystal Reed, who you probably know from TV shows like Teen Wolf and Gotham, recently made headlines because she's apparently dating Swamp Thing co-star Maria Sten. Crystal was most recently dating Darren McMullen, an Australian TV host and music journalist, but according to The Daily Mail, the two possibly split up back in August, 2019. Crystal and Darren had been together since 2013. Crystal was married to personality star Peter Nottoli from 2008-2011, and has been linked to Oliver Trevena and Daniel Sharman.
Who's Crystal Reed's alleged girlfriend, Maria Sten?
It looks like Crystal has moved on — and maybe has for awhile now. While it hasn't been confirmed, reports claim that Crystal and Maria have been dating since July 2019 (which means that Crystal's relationship with Maria may have overlapped with her and Darren's). But the internet has been buzzing as of late because of a comment Crystal left on a photo Maria posted to Instagram eight hours ago: "Can't wait to have my girlfriend back. ;)" Maria was vacationing in Italy.
Back in September, Maria posted a photo of the two of them walking side-by-side, looking glamorous as heck. "Walk through life with women you admire and they won't know what hit them. @crystalmreed thank you for your light! Abby x Liz for life!"
Maybe the two are dating, or maybe Crystal and Maria are just really good friends. So, who's Maria Sten exactly? We know that she's a Danish actress and filmmaker who won the title of Miss Denmark Universe back in 2008. She was a dancer and model before she started acting. She's been in many short films, such as Mellow Peaches (2015) Book Trader (2017), and she directed, produced and wrote short films Kate (2016), and Wild Things Run Free (2017). She has an uncredited role in the biographical drama, Straight Outta Compton (2015). Her most well-known role is Liz Tremayne in the show Swamp Thing, which was canceled this year.

We know that Maria cares about wildlife.
Back in early December, she tweeted a call-to-action for people (and Amazon) to stop polluting the earth with single-use plastic products.
She's also giving back by building a school for those in need.
Maria announced in November that she'll be building a school in Senegal. No big deal or anything!
Has Maria worked on any other projects since Swamp Thing got cancelled?
In an interview with Talk Nerdy With Us, Maria said, "I'm currently developing a few things in the TV space and also working on a supernatural post-apocalyptic feature script. And playing around with an idea for a period piece short to direct. In other words, I just try to stay busy at all hours of the day." We'll be on the lookout for sure.
Maria loves reading — and especially loves fantasy novels.
Maria tells Talk Nerdy With Us, "I'm a book nerd. I devour books, and I'm a huge Lord of the Rings fan. Huge. Harry Potter too. I did create a LOTR board game when I was a kid that I would still love to finish one day."
Whether or not Crystal and Maria have a romantic relationship or a platonic one, they look like they love and respect each other, and that is awesome.
