Before they were Marvel movie fixtures, Chris Pratt and Emily VanCamp’s breakout roles were on Everwood, where they starred as brother and sister Bright and Amy Abbott, respectively. They became smitten with one another on the set of the show, which debuted in 2002, and began dating in 2004.
Pratt admitted to TV Guide in 2006 that dating an on-screen sibling was a bit weird for him and VanCamp, but only because they were initially secretive about their romance for their first six months together to avoid making anyone else on set uncomfortable. Once they went public, though, it was just icky to people who didn’t know the couple well and couldn’t separate fiction from reality.
“We’ve pretty much gotten used to the response of, ‘Eww, that’s weird. That’s creepy,'” he said. “The people who know us are happy, and probably expected it to happen eventually. But yeah, every once in a while we get that one person that’s like, ‘That’s really creepy. You just kissed your sister.'”
Alas, once the show ended in 2006, the relationship eventually followed suit, and Pratt and VanCamp split in 2007.
