Contrary to Fillion's fairly successful professional life is his personal life, which has seen plenty of women so far. He dated a few starlet actresses in the past, such as Krista Allen, Perrey Reeves, and Vanessa Marcil. The 'Castle' actor can be identified as a 'ladies man,' but it is a big surprise that the 49-year-old is currently single and has never married to date. So, without wasting much time, we take you close to all the past affairs of the handsome American actor.
Nathan Fillion's First Love: Vanessa Marcil
First love is always special, isn't it? American actor Nathan Fillion found the first taste of romance during his early career as he dated fellow actress Vanessa Marcil. While it was Fillion's first time, the 'General Hospital' actress just came off a divorce with ex-husband Corey Feldman. What they shared between them was special at that time as the two dated for a couple of years before making the big decision to get engaged in 1995.

However, things weren't just meant to be as the two couldn't work out their relationship despite an engagement ring. Thus, they broke up in 1996, and Fillion changed his focus from women to a career for the next few years. On the other hand, Marcil went through another marriage that ended in divorce with actor-cum-painter, Carmine Giovinazzo.
Four Year Long Affair with Perrey Reeves
With almost eight years of dormancy in the dating game, Nathan Fillion was already an established actor during the mid-2000s. Likewise, it was then when he decided to get back in the dating zone as he went out with fellow actress, Perrey Reeves. The two seemed perfect for each other with similar interests since both were quite popular in the entertainment industry.

The celebrity couple met for the first time in 2004 and felt a unique vibe between them. Fans shipped The 'Firefly' actor Fillion and Reeves to get married as well.

After a big breakup with Perrey Reeves, actor Nathan Fillion found his rebound in 2009, which happened to be a longtime girlfriend in Canadian-American actress, Stana Katic.

Initially, things were quite blooming between the acting couple, like most of the lovers in their honeymoon phase. But, in the later years, the relationship grew out to be more toxic instead. Even though they smiled in front of the cameras, insider sources revealed that they absolutely despised on another in the later years. In fact, they wouldn't even talk to each other while on the set most of the time. Although Katic's agent denied the claims saying there were no issues, the duo also attended counseling sessions to resolve their differences upon the orders of the show runners.

Thus, after three years of dealing with one another and creating some memories, Fillion decided to break up with Stana Katic. Back in 2017, the Canadian actress decided to quit the show, and through many conflicts in between, ABC later decided to cancel the whole show to such a promising show. Despite the fact that Fillion went on to share many romantic relationships then, the breakup turned right for the 'Absentia' star since she found her beau Kris Brkljac and got married in 2015.
However, there's also a chance they dated for a much shorter time than that. If the relationship timeline of Katic and Brkljac is to be analyzed, Katic may have taken a break from Brkljac to be with Fillion in real life, before getting back together with Brkljac and realizing that he was already perfect for her. And the timeline of dating between Fillion & Katic for three years really doesn't fit either, considering his next relationship started in 2010.
