Tyler James Williams made a lasting impression on Hollywood fans following his successful role as Chris in "Everybody Hates Chris." Now 29, Williams has already dated some big names.


Tyler James Williams knows how to land himself roles in hit TV series that fans love to catch a glimpse of. His latest work on the sitcom "Abbott Elementary" has not failed to live up to fans' huge expectations.

The sitcom follows the story of a couple of Philadelphia teachers in an underfunded public school hoping to help their students get a good start in life. Williams plays the role of Gregory Eddie, a substitute teacher.

His presence in the sitcom brings a sense of nostalgia to fans who have followed his career since his days as Chris on "Everybody Hates Chris." "Abbott Elementary" blends Hollywood vets like Lisa Ann Walters and Sheryl Lee Ralph with internet stars like Quinta Brunson and Zack Fox.


While the sitcom boasts a rich ensemble, many would no doubt be thrilled with the familiar presence of Williams on the show. Born in 1992 in West Chester County, New York, the 29-year-old has been in the show biz since he was 4.

Williams began his career on the popular children's show "Sesame Street" where he spent half a decade before getting his big break in "Everybody Hates Chris." The actor has carved a remarkable career for himself since then.



Since Williams became a big star, fans have been curious about the actor's love life. Although Williams is reportedly not in a relationship, the "Little Bill" star has dated some famous women in the past.

Williams was romantically linked with Anastasia Baranova, a Russian-American actress. There are various reports about the duration of their relationship, with many sources citing that the duo became official in 2017.


Williams is notoriously private about his love life, and he never confirmed their romance. But, the couple were often spotted spending time together.

Also, their social media pages featured several cozy pictures of them during their supposed love adventures. However, both stars deleted their photos from their pages after things went south.

Before his relationship with Baranova, Williams was also rumored to be dating Karina Pasian. The duo shared several public moments, with Williams appearing in her song "Solitaire."

Additionally, William shared a tweet hinting at his relationship with the singer. Reports state that the couple dated until 2015. Before becoming a household name, Williams had a teenage romance with "Akeelah and the Bee" actress Keke Palmer.


The young stars began dating in 2006 but ended things; they were both at the early stages of their careers. They split in 2008 and went on to forge different careers for themselves.



During a recent appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," Williams briefly spoke about his romantic life, adding that dating had always been a weird subject for him.

Having spent the bulk of his childhood and all his adult years in the limelight, Williams believes there is an imbalance in his life.

The actor admitted that his fame might be a reason why he is still single. But, for now, Williams has his eyes set on achieving more fame with "Abbot Elementary." The show has already gained over 7 million viewers since it aired.
