Sydney Chandler and Louis Partridge have been linked since starring in FX’s Pistol earlier this year, with the two often cropping up in one another’s social media posts.

As Hollywood descends on Venice for the 79th annual Venice International Film Festival, all eyes are on one film in particular: Don’t Worry Darling.

Sydney Chandler, 26, is one of the stars of Olivia Wilde’s sophomore film, a sleek psycho-thriller set in a dystopian ’50s suburb. Coming as no surprise to her fans, who turned up to support Sydney in Venice? Louis Partridge.

Let’s take a look at the relationship between the two actors leading up to their latest outing in the Italian city.

Louis and Sydney work together on Pistol

At the start of last year, production got underway for FX’s limited series about iconic punk band Sex Pistols. Pistol, directed by Danny Boyle, follows the band and the prominent figures who accompanied them on their rise to fame/infamy.

Louis Partridge was cast as Sid Vicious, the band’s late bassist, and Sydney Chandler was cast as Chrissie Hynde, the lead singer of The Pretenders.

While Louis and Sydney did not have many scenes together – the majority of her scenes were shared with Toby Wallace playing Sex Pistols’ guitarist Steve Jones – they struck up a friendship that has lasted beyond the film.

All the clues fuelling the dating rumors

Since the pair were first linked on the set of Pistol, internet sleuths have been picking apart all the clues that Louis Partridge and Sydney Chandler are, in fact, dating. This has not been confirmed by either party although they arguably have gone ‘Instagram official’ on a number of occasions.

Back in December 2021, Louis shared multiple Instagram posts from his and Sydney’s trip to Paris. The pair are seen in two snaps.

Sydney Chandler has shared numerous pictures of herself and Louis over the past (almost) two years they’ve known one another. In May this year, Sydney shared a series of photos on Instagram of a camping trip she took with Louis. He commented on the post that it was the “best times”.

Now, with the pair appearing at the Venice Film Festival together, speculation that they are romantically linked grows even more.

The Focus has reached out to Sydney Chandler and Louis Partridge’s reps for comment.

All about Sydney Chandler’s role in Don’t Worry Darling

After wowing with her performance as Chrissie Hynde in Pistol, it comes as no surprise that the future is looking bright for Sydney, daughter of Emmy Award-winner Kyle Chandler.

Sydney was cast as Violet in Don’t Worry Darling, one of the housewives living in Victory, California alongside Florence Pugh’s Alice and Harry Styles’ Jack. Violet is married to Bill (played by Douglas Smith) in the film.

Sydney spoke to WWD back in June about her role in the film, which was her first-ever screen role:

“You kind of are able to enter this world that Olivia [Wilde] has created through Violet’s eyes, and her husband. It kind of just works out so nicely because the whole cliché of ‘life imitates art,’ but it was my first movie set ever, and you’re working with these huge names, and I’m like, ‘I don’t know how any of this works, here we go.’ So me, myself as Sydney was very new to this world, and so I felt my character very, very quickly, just kind of stepping in and soaking up the vibe on set and seeing how all of it works. And so that kind of translated really perfectly for my character.”
