Emma Thompson’s daughter Gaia Wise packs on the PDA with actor friend Basil Eidenbenz

It seems that Emma Thompson’s daughter, Gaia Wise, is more loved up than ever with her new actor boyfriend, Basil Eidenbenz.

On Tuesday, the loving couple wrapped up the PDA and kissed while attending the opening night of Tango After Dark at the Peacock Theater in London.

Gaia, 22, who is following in her mother’s acting footsteps, looked chic in a bright red coat as she stepped out on the red carpet with her husband, 29.

Gaia paired her coat with high-waisted leather-look pants and a floral bustier.

The brunette, who bears a striking resemblance to her famous mother, wore her short tresses and focused around her face and natural-looking makeup.

Basil, on the other hand, kept things casual in black trousers and a matching shirt, with a denim jacket over it.

He wore his dark blonde locks pulled back and pulled back from his face in a bun.

Basil is best known for his role in The Witcher with Henry Cavill.

The couple grabbed the PDA, cuddled and kissed on the red carpet – Gaia looked absolutely smitten.

Tango After Dark features tango world champion German Cornejo and other world-class dancers who offer guests a rousing dance show.

Gaia and Basil, meanwhile, debuted their romance in July when they performed together on Sister Act: The Musical at the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith, west London.

The actress, who is the daughter of Emma Thompson and Greg Wise, previously dated Scottish marine engineer Daniel Kent, who works on one of the world’s most spectacular superyachts.

Gaia recently made her acting debut in the latest series of BBC drama Silent Witness.

In the series, Gaia plays college student Jo Reynolds whose mother, the controversial health secretary, is murdered – sparking the interest of coroners.

It comes after Gaia detailed her three-year battle with anorexia – and credited her parents with saving her life by staging an emergency intervention.

The aspiring actress developed anorexia at the age of 16, which left her so thin she couldn’t even sit in a chair without feeling pain. She was later admitted to rehab in 2017.

Speaking to The Sun for the first time on Sunday about her illness, she said: “Anorexia makes you really good at gaslighting people so it sounds like they’re crazy.

“My parents used to say, ‘Gaia, we heard you worked out at 3 a.m.’ And I would say, ‘No you didn’t, it was just the move. I was sleeping.’

Anorexia is a serious mental illness in which a person restricts their food intake, often resulting in severe underweight. Many also exercise excessively.

Gaia spoke about how Greg, Emma and their family, including brother Tindy, 36, and their best friend, gathered for an intervention, with Gaia agreeing to a three-month stint in rehab after Greg said, “I don’t know where my child is is is no more.’

Adding that it was a “kick in the teeth,” she added, “I had to listen to the people in the world I loved the most, who I really forgot at the time, tell me what I was doing.”

She said: “So I said I was going to rehab. I left on December 29, 2017 and stayed for three months. I’ve had a lot of therapy since then – and I’ll always be grateful for that because it saved my life.”
