One Day has arrived on Netflix, and you’re going to be obsessed with the tear-jerking love story.
Leo Woodall and Ambika Mod portray Dexter Mayhew and Emma Morley, who meet properly for the first time on graduation night and spend a great few hours together before departing for their very different summer plans the next morning.
In the 14 episodes, we check up with the couple on the same day (July 15) each year to discover how they fit into each other’s lives as they become adulthood. It’s an emotional voyage as the couple goes through heartache, joy, and milestone events while maturing both separately and together.
The series is based on David Nicholls’ best-selling novel, which has previously been adapted into a film starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess. This time, we get to spend many more hours with the characters, and we cherish every moment.
There’s a reason you may have seen Leo before. Here’s a peek at the 27-year-old’s career and love life.
Who is Leo Woodall’s girlfriend?
Some of the luckiest performers in the world got to go to Italy to shoot White Lotus’ second season, which will premiere in 2022. This featured Leo and Meghann Fahy from The Bold Type, and despite the fact that their characters had nothing in common other than staying at the same hotel, they liked spending time together when the cameras were off.
They both shared their Sicilian exploits on Instagram, allowing us to witness how much fun they had eating, drinking, and dancing across the island.
In one photo Leo has his finger in the mouth of Meghann, 33 and the caption for the gallery post read ‘That’s Amore’. Meghann commented ‘I love you! I love these! I love you! 😘♥️’ to which he replied, ‘Love you right back.’

Meghann returned the favour by posting a cosy selfie of the pair.
The clues led to rumours that they were more than co-stars, prompting Andy Cohen to ask Meghann on Watch What Happens Live.
‘Oh, I don’t kiss and tell! Come on, guys!’ she shared.
Last July (not the 15th, FYI), they cheerfully posed together at the South Bank Sky Arts Awards, and in November, they were caught kissing beneath a shared umbrella in New York.
‘Now that they’ve been dating, they’ve really started to fall in love and are very happy to let anyone know how they feel around each other,’ a source told the Daily Mail. ‘They are definitely in the shout it out on the rooftops phase of their relationship and love seeing what the next day brings, they really make each other smile.’
The pair spent New Year’s Eve together with a group of their pals, and Leo shared a video of their trip to the countryside and wrote: ‘Ended 2023 with my favourite people.’ Meghann responded: ‘Best best best’. Adorable!
Leo Woodall’s movies and TV shows beyond One Day
As previously reported, Leo appeared in the Emmy-Award-winning White Lotus as Essex cheeky boy Jack, who delivered us one of the most surprising moments of the programme.
In a mid-series shock, Tanya (Jennifer Coolidge) witnesses Jack’s sexual encounter with his ‘uncle’ Quintin (Tom Hollander).
Even Leo was pretty shocked – ‘When I found out I was doing it, I couldn’t speak for ten seconds then I thought, “That’s such a brilliant moment,”‘ he told The Sunday Times Style Magazine.
Leo, a Londoner, comes from an acting family (he claims to be a descendant of Maxine Elliott, and his father, Solo: A Star Wars Story actor Andrew Woodall, even met his mother at drama school), but that’s not why he pursued the trade; instead, Peaky Blinders influenced his career choice.
He considered becoming a PE teacher or stuntman until he was 19 and viewing an episode of the popular Cillian Murphy-led sitcom.‘For some reason, it changed my mind,’ he told W magazine.
After making his TV debut in Holby City, he went on to star in Citadel, Vampire Academy, and the film Cherry with Tom Holland.
