CHARLES Dance’s stunning female beach companion is believed to be a glamorous Italian film director who is working on the actor’s next release.
The Jewel In The Crown star, 73, is dating Alessandra Masi, 53, according to reports in MailOnline.
The pair first met in 2018 for art film The Book Of Vision, which aired at the Venice Film Festival on Thursday.
As such, the pair were seen celebrating its debut as they enjoyed a smooch on a beach in Venice.
The legendary British actor showed off his toned frame as he took a dip in black swimshorts.
Alessandra then waded into the sea by his side on a sunny day in the romantic Italian city.
The pair wrapped their arms around each other and shared a passionate kiss as they bobbed in the water.
Bologna-born Alessandra, who works as a unit production manager, will also feature in the off-screen team for Charles’ next movie, The Inn At The Edge Of The World.
Game of Thrones actor Charles will also direct, as well as star.
It is an adaptation of the book of the same name, by Thomas Ellis.
Father-of-two Charles was married to ex-wife Joanna Haythorn for 34 years before they divorced in 2004.
The former couple have two children Oliver, 46, and Rebecca, 40.
He garnered a reputation as a lothario following his lengthy marriage, dating a string of younger women.
The star enjoyed short-lived romances with actress Sophia Myles and model Shambhala Marthe before finding some stability with artist Eleanor Boorman.
The couple went on to have a child called Rose together in 2012, but their four-year romance ended just months later.
