Madeline heads for LA in last-minute trip with her Transformers beau Jack

LOVED-up Madeline Mulqueen has dropped everything to join her Transformers star boyfriend Jack Reynor Stateside.

The aspiring actress has decided to join her beau in Los Angeles – and while it's only a temporary move for now, it might be a sign of things to come.

Wicklow-born Jack (21) is set to star in the next instalment of Transformers, so his time in LA is expected to be taken up with meetings.

Shooting for the fourth movie is expected to start in May, and he will be seen on the big screen soon in Steven Spielberg's new flick, Delivery Man.

Madeline's decision to relocate to LA to be with Jack could also help strengthen her own acting ambitions.

In the past, the Limerick model – who shot to fame after she starred in the video for Rubberbandits' Horse Outside – has spoken of her wish to pursue her dream.

For now, though, Madeline is more than happy just to support Jack as she enjoys a break.

"Madeline is in LA, but not for work – she's on holiday," a source said. "She decided to go last minute and is looking forward to seeing some of the big tourist sights."

The pair jetted off at the weekend after enjoying a going-away meal with Jack's family at Nandos in Dundrum.

Jack and Madeline went public with their relationship in January and went to the IFTAs the following month.


They have been inseparable ever since, and Jack has visited Madeline's family home in Limerick.

Transformers director Michael Bay personally selected Jack to replace Shia LaBeouf for the next film.

The What Richard Did star has revealed he was undertaking an intense physical regime to prepare for his role.

Coincidentally, Madeline is also studying to become a fitness trainer, so Jack won't have to look far for tips.

"I'm training intensely at the moment. I'm going to keep that up until we shoot," Jack has said.

2013 is shaping up to be a big year for the Wicklow man, who won Best Actor in a Film at the IFTAs in February.

And Jack is getting tips from other Hollywood actors, with former Transformers star Josh Duhamel heaping praise on the Irish youngster for landing the coveted role.

"He's in for a good couple of years with shooting and travelling the world promoting it," Josh said. "Good for him."
