After Domhnall joined the “Star Wars” universe in 2015, his father was worried about the attention he might get. His father said:

“I don’t think Domhnall will be defined by his Star Wars role, he’s well known already, and his attitude is pretty great. I just hope the attention doesn’t become too idiotic, but I can’t see why it should.”

However, he does not discuss his relationship status and is shocked people are interested in that part of his life. He believes that part of his life is precious and would not want to share it with the public.
