'Dallas' Actor Patrick Duffy & 'Happy Days' Actress Linda Purl Started Dating in Quarantine!

Two legendary TV stars are now a couple after falling in love while in quarantine!

Patrick Duffy, best known for playing Bobby Ewing on Dallas, and Linda Purl, best known for playing Ashley Pfister on Happy Days, are dating.

“I’m in an incredibly happy relationship,” Patrick, 71, told People. “I never thought for a minute this would happen again. I never thought I’d feel this way again.”

Patrick was previously married to ballet dancer Carlyn Rosser for more than for decades until she died from cancer in 2017.

During the pandemic, Patrick and Linda, who were casual friends years ago, ended up on the same group text chain and eventually that led to them talking between the two of them.

“I loaded up my car and drove 20 hours and ended up on her doorstep just to see if it was real,” Patrick said. “We haven’t been apart since.”

He added, “I feel quite honestly, that it is keeping with the desires of my wife, the fact that we are intended to be happy. So when it’s offered, think about it, do whatever you do, but don’t let it pass you up if it’s the right thing.”
