** One would think this would have ended in 2016 when Katic's well-publicized leaving the show revealed stories of how she and Fillion hadn't gotten along on set for years. However, some insist that this is proof of how they had a relationship but it ended badly to create this wedge.

* Creator/MichaelFassbender and Creator/JamesMcAvoy, who played Magneto and Professor X respectively in ''Film/XMenFirstClass''. The latter is especially enthusiastic, and this has earned him the title of "The Captain of Our Ship" on Tumblr. While doing interviews promoting the film, the actors sang to each other and talked about how [[https://youtu.be/I7u1kb4TMo4?t=5m27s they would fly all over the world spreading love to the hapless populace if they had super powers]]. James' tendency to talk about how their characters should have had sex and gotten married did not help one bit.
** [=McAvoy=] has even made up ship names of his own ([[https://vimeo.com/84781468#t=4m25s "[=BoyVander=]", "[=McAbender=]" and suggesting the already widely-used "[=FassAvoy=]"]]) and [[https://youtu.be/bIG9kVSREqc?t=3m25s claims to have had sex with Fassbender FOUR times]]. When the interviewer asks him if Fassbender is a tender lover, he hilariously replies that he's "left to take care of [himself] after." [=McAvoy=] also frequently acknowledges the [[https://youtu.be/ZP4ryVYGH_s?t=2m49s "sexy" quality to Fassbender's portrayal of Magneto]]; [[https://youtu.be/zoNkz4gb6Xc?t=7m20s in one infamous interview]], he amends "not that I'm drawn to that," and Michael jumps in with "a little bit," and James agrees "a little bit, on Tuesdays."

** Fassbender was ready to take it to the next level. Creator/DannyBoyle had revealed in his commentary for ''Film/SteveJobs'' that before Fassbender had left ''Film/{{Trance}}'' due to scheduling conflicts, the actor (who was supposed to portray Franck) was pushing for the character of Elizabeth to be gender-flipped so that he could play the role instead. [=McAvoy=] was already cast as Simon, and [[spoiler:Elizabeth and Simon had previously been involved in a therapist/patient affair]], so that means Fassbender wanted one of the central relationships to be a [[spoiler:homosexual one, and he was willing to film sex scenes with [=McAvoy=]]].

This is what happens when fans want the actors who play certain characters on a show to get together because their on-screen chemistry just makes them look so gosh-darn cute. If someone actually has the gall to suggest this to an actor personally, expect an irritated IAmNotSpock response to follow.

There are generally three kinds of real-person shippers: the ones who know that it's all just fiction and ship it for fun/because it's hot, the ones who think there really is some {{UST}} to be had but know that it most likely won't ever get resolved (and proceed to ship it for fun/because it's hot), and the ones who truly believe that the people in question are copulating like bunnies when the cameras are off. A fan of the latter type is known derogatorily in some circles as a "Tinhat" and can often be recognised by their conspiracy theories about evil PR people/network execs/whatever forcing the two actors to keep their relationship a secret.

secret. Note that the fact one or both partners may be in a relationship or even married to other people, or perhaps is even of different sexual orientations to one another is irrelevant.

** Despite a 25-year age difference, the off-screen chemistry between Creator/PeterCapaldi and Creator/JennaColeman was so strong, with both openly admitting their friendship for one another and the two often seen hugging and gazing adoringly at each other at public events, stirred the flames of speculation as to whether they might be a real life couple. In truth this isn't the case; Capaldi has been married for 25 years and has a daughter, and Coleman was involved in a long-term relationship with Creator/RichardMadden when she wasn't captured by paparazzi hanging out with the likes of Prince Harry. The two simply became very close and dear friends (as verified by directors, the show runner and fellow actors). Coleman probably didn't help matters any when she created the often-repeated soundbite "I love Peter Capaldi" during the 2015 San Diego Comic Con panel when she paid tribute to her co-star.

* ''Series/{{Glee}}'' is rife with this. There's the popular pairing of Kevin [=McHale=] and Jenna Ushkowitz ([[PortmanteauCoupleName McHalowitz]]), there's the potentially "canon" pairing of Mark Salling and Naya Rivera, there's Creator/CoryMonteith and Lea Michele shippers, there's people who think Naya Rivera and Heather Morris ([[PortmanteauCoupleName HeYa]]) are as close as their characters... And then there's Creator/ChrisColfer, who may qualify as the Glee RPF fandom's LauncherOfAThousandShips, since there's maybe two male cast members he ''hasn't'' been paired with. And his on-screen dad is not one of them. Then there's the fact that Ryan Murphy has allegedly banned sex in the cast's trailers, suggesting that there's been sex ''to'' ban... Sorry, ''Glee'' cast, but it's not our fault you're twelve ridiculously attractive young people.
