Joseph Gatt and Mercy Malick’s relationship explored

Malick and Gatt have been dating since 2009 and reside in Los Angeles together.

In a 2013 interview with, Joseph opened up about his first date with Mercy, recalling a pretty funny anecdote.

“On my first date with Mercy Malick, we were sitting in her bedroom and just talking,” the actor told the publication.

“She asked me openly, “What’s the worst thing you can tell me about yourself that might scare me away?’ So I responded coyly, “Well, I am a huge Sci-Fi/Star Wars geek and have a huge collection of Star Wars toys in storage in the UK which I’m having shipped here pretty soon.” Mercy stared and me and told me to “Wait right there.” So I waited while she went into her closet and reached for the top shelf.

“As she did this she said, “I haven’t ever shown this to anyone before on a first date!” She then pulled out a mint-looking Darth Vader action figure carry case from 1980. She placed it on the bed next to me and then opened it up… and it was FULL of mint-condition action figures! It was immediate love.”

Gatt also admitted that in order to score a date with Mercy, he had to run across Santa Monica beach to “get her number and ask her out on a first date.”

Since, the pair have attended red carper events and premieres side-by-side, making appearances at the likes of the Dumbo premiere and the Vulture Festival opening night.
