Pelphrey played the character of disturbed Ben Davis in the Netflix drama. The duo met at an after-show party.  Cuoco later disclosed that she had attended that party at the request of her manager, who also happens to be Pelphrey’s manager.

Pelphrey uploaded a pair of Polaroid pictures of himself and his latest lady love, along with a lengthy quote from a play that was particularly meaningful to the star: “But nothing can save you.  Not your friends, not the best Fred Astaire musical you’ve ever seen—the grace of it, not the beauty of your mother, not a line from a letter you find at the bottom of a drawer, not a magazine or the next day. Nothing can save you.”

“And you stand in the moonlight, and sweetness comes from the top of the trees, and the fence around the yard seals you off from the dark, and you can’t breathe.  It is all so familiar and possible. It is too simple that there is this much good in the world and you don’t know how to have it. And it makes you wonder when it was you lost your place. Then you catch a breeze, so warm and ripe, it makes you hope that someone will come who also cannot save you, but who will think you are worth saving.”
