In 2019, Starkey also appeared in several TV shows, including Doom Patrol, Queen Sugar, Scream: Resurrection, and Dolly Parton's Heartstrings.

2020 was Starkey's breakout year in the acting world.

He first appeared in the action-adventure mystery drama series Outer Banks.

The Netflix series premiered on April 15, 2020, and quickly became one of the most viewed shows in the streamer's history.

In the show, Starkey portrays Rafe Cameron, Sarah Cameron's older brother, and the main antagonist of the Pogues.

Cameron is played by Madelyn Cline, while Chase Stokes, Madison Bailey, Jonathan Daviss, and Rudy Pankow make up the Pogues: John B. Routledge, Kiara "Kie" Carrera, Pope Heyward, and JJ Maybank.

Starkey initially auditioned for the role of John B. Routledge, which ultimately went to Stokes instead.

In February 2023, ahead of the show's third season premiere, the series was renewed for a fourth season.

On September 11, 2020, Starkey also appeared in The Devil All The Time, a Southern Gothic psychological drama.

The film had an ensemble cast, featuring Robert Pattinson, Tom Holland, Sebastian Stan, Riley Keough, Bill Skarsgard, and Mia Wasikowska.

In 2022, Starkey appeared alongside Chris Pratt, Constance Wu, and Taylor Kitsch in the action thriller series The Terminal List.

Later that year, Starkey appeared in the supernatural horror film reboot, Hellraiser, alongside his now-rumored girlfriend, Odessa A'zion.

Apart from his main role in Outer Banks' upcoming fourth season, Starkey will next appear alongside Daniel Craig in Luca Guadagnino's historical romantic drama film, Queer.

Guadagnino, who is best known for his movies Call Me By Your Name and Bones And All adapted the screenplay from the 1985 William S. Burroughs novel of the same name.

Queer is also set to star Lesley Manville, Henry Zaga, and Jason Schwartzman.

What is Drew Starkey's dating history?

While Drew Starkey's level of fame only continues to rise, the actor has remained relatively quiet about his personal life.

Despite having nearly 4 million followers on Instagram, he remains off social media for the most part.

Instead, Starkey posts only the occasional promotional or behind-the-scenes photos of himself on the set of various film and TV projects.

Much like his personal life, Starkey also remains mum on his relationships and dating life.

In the early 2010s, Starkey reportedly dated Claire Van der Linden while attending college.

The duo even co-starred in the short film, The Radical Notion of Gene Mutation, together.

Van der Linden is also an actress, likely known for her appearances in the TV shows Empire and Chicago Med.

She's also appeared in the 2019 film Knives and Skin, and the 2021 film Lacy's Christmas Do-Over.

While she appeared somewhat sporadically on Starkey's Instagram account, Starkey hasn't posted a photo with or of Van der Linden since 2014.

He also recently removed the majority of his Instagram photos, either by deleting or archiving them.

Since late 2022, Starkey has been linked to fellow actress Odessa Zion Segall Adlon, known professionally as Odessa A'zion.

A'zion appeared alongside Starkey in the 2022 reboot, Hellraiser, with fans quick to notice the duo's on-and-off-screen chemistry.

In an October 2022 interview with Screen Rant, Starkey discussed the relationship between his and A'zion's characters, Trevor and Riley, in the film.

"The relationship between the two kind of goes along with the theme of desire and temptation," Starkey said.

"What you want in your life or what you desire, ultimately the further you go into it, it just hurts you more and more."

"It was really fun to play," he added.

On November 5, 2022, A'zion also posted a series of photos of herself and Starkey to her own social media account.

"Happy birthday Joseph. Keep eating that pb n j once a day, it’s really good for ur bones. P.s. don’t play hat wars unless you want to not be alive," she captioned the goofy snaps.

The duo were also spotted holding hands and hugging at Poguelandia, a festival promoting Outer Banks, in Huntington Beach, California, on February 18, 2023.

While the couple has kept off social media for the most part, leaving some fans to question whether Starkey and A'zion are still together, others have spotted some major clues that signal the up-and-coming stars are still going strong.

Fan account @DStarkeyNews posted a few photos of the duo on December 1, 2023.

"New / old photos of Drew and Odessa shared by her on Instagram stories," they captioned the post.

The account also posted a video of Starkey and A'zion leaving Paris, surrounded by huge crowds of fans and paparazzi, on Sunday, January 21, 2024.

Before dating Starkey, A'zion was in a relationship with Jaden Smith, who even accompanied the actress to her high school prom in May 2018.

A'zion is the daughter of American actress Pamela Adlon and German director Felix O. Adlon.

Pamela is best known for her voiceover work, voicing Bobby Hill in the animated comedy series, King of the Hill, Ashley Spinelli in Recess, and Baloo in Jungle Cubs.

A'zion's sister, Gideon Adlon, is also an actress, appearing in movies including Blockers, Sick, and Craft: Legacy, and TV shows like The Society and The Thing About Pam.
