He’s based in London, but Love/Hate star Robert Sheehan made the journey back to Ireland – bringing his other half along with him.

The former Misfits actor (27) took French-Algerian Sofia Boutella with him as he was honoured in Trinity College.

Fresh from appearing in the UK stage production War of the Roses, Robert was honoured by the college’s History Society with the Burke Medal for Outstanding Contribution to Discourse through the Arts while Sofia watched on proudly from the audience along with Robert’s aspiring actor brother Brendan.

The couple have been loved-up since meeting on the set of backpacker movie Jet Trash last year.

Robert starred in the movie and produced it, but the pair been keeping out of the limelight.

Robert and his dancer girlfriend spent weeks in India making the film and taking in some of the local culture.

“I had a fantastic experience. The film was made on a shoestring and it looks extraordinary,” he said.
