A Tom Hardy lookalike and his Charlize Theron counterpart fell in love on the set of Mad Max: Fury Road and are now married with children.

Stunt doubles Dane and Dayna Grant met while filming in the Namibian desert in 2012 and got hitched just a year later.

"I saw Dayna straight away – she was the only girl from New Zealand and she stood out like a sore thumb," Dane told Stuff NZ.

"I saw her bag with her name on it and my opening line was literally, 'Hi. I see you're Dayna. I'm Dane'. That was about it," he added.

But it was while hanging from high speed vehicles, punching each other and being wrapped in chains that their love really blossomed.

So the two of us were doing this – dare I say – very S&M-type fight, it’s a love/hate mixture between these characters. They’re very close, there’s chains, they’re holding each other in very intimate positions, and the longer we were doing it the more we’re kind of eyeing each other up.
