Emma Corrin showed their support for Wrexham FC and former co-star Ryan Reynolds ahead of his move to the UK.
The actor, 27, posed for a beaming selfie with the Deadpool star, 46, as they cheered on his team – who currently sit top of the National League.
They looked effortlessly stylish in a green patterned cardigan and casual blue jeans.
Emma, who is non-binary and uses they/them pronouns, was instantly recognisable by their short platinum pixie cut.
Ryan cut a casual figure in a black Wrexham FC raincoat as he watched his team take on Notts County.

Move: The actor has bought a £1.5million four bedroom house in Marford in Clwyd, just five miles North-East of Wrexham, where he and fellow movie giant Rob McElhenney run the town’s football club
It was announced in February Emma is starring alongside Ryan in the next installment of the Deadpool franchise.
Ryan, who is reprising the title role as the foul-mouthed anti-hero, tweeted: ‘New addition to the family! The Deadpool family, for clarity. Which is just like a real family except with less swearing… Welcome, Emma Corrin!’
The actor has bought a £1.5million four bedroom house in Marford in Clwyd, just five miles North-East of Wrexham, where he and fellow movie giant Rob McElhenney run the town’s football club.
He will be joined by wife Blake Lively, 35, and their children James, eight, Inez, six, and Betty, three, as well as their fourth baby born earlier this year.
Marford has been part of both England and Wales over the years – being just a few miles from the border.
The village has a population of roughly 2,500 people. There are two pubs, one at the bottom of the Marford hill – The Trevor Arms – and the other at the top, The Red Lion.
There is one shop, the Co-Op which opened in June 2016, adjacent to The Red Lion.
The village also has a disused quarry, which opened in 1927 to originally supply materials for the creation of the Mersey Tunnel before being shut down in 1971.
It has since become become an important nature reserve, having been colonised by a variety of plant species and insect life like moths and butterflies.
Marford’s previous claim to fame was being the hometown of former Blue Peter presenter, Tim Vincent, so a wave of excitement is washing over the village.
Maguz Malik, 57, who owns The Red Lion pub, told MailOnline today: ‘It’s wonderful news. Ryan Reynolds has done so much for Wrexham and the local area.

‘It’s caused a real buzz in the village, many of the locals are excited that such a huge star is going to be living here.
‘I’ve seen a lot of his movies and I’ve obviously watched the Netflix documentary about him and Rob McElhenney taking over at Wrexham football club.
‘Ryan seems like a real down to earth guy and I think he’ll fit in around here. It’s a friendly and welcoming place to live. I’m sure he’ll love it as much as us.
‘And he’s more than welcome in the pub, we’ll have a pint waiting for him.’
Wrexham fan Rob Davies, 58, was also thrilled at having such a famous neighbour.
He said: ‘It’s fantastic news that he’s chosen Marford as a place to live. What he and Rob have put into Wrexham, both the football club and the local community, has been incredible. They’ve been a force for good over these last two years.
‘I think they both have a genuine fondness for the club and the area and it’s certainly reciprocated.
‘Ryan is a bit like his character in Deadpool, very deadpan. I like that. He doesn’t take himself very seriously and he’s been criticised for taking on Wrexham by other rival supporters but he never snaps or gets heated. He deals with it all with humour – and that’s the best way.’
Reynolds, along with co-chairman Rob McElhenney, have helped transform Welsh team Wrexham FC, and have had huge success documenting their progress in season one of their documentary series, ‘Welcome to Wrexham’.
In August last year Reynolds revealed his wife was not particularly happy when he told her the he had bought the Welsh team with It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia actor McElhenney.
In an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, he said: ‘I remember seeing Blake, saying, “I have bad news and I have really bad news. I slipped into someone’s DMs again. The really bad news is that I might have bought half of a fifth-tier national football league in Wales.”‘

However, Ms Lively has been snapped cheering on Reynold’s club. In May last year the couple watched Wrexham take on Bromley during the Buildbase FA Trophy Final at Wembley Stadium in London.
The pair bought the club back in 2020 . Since then they have put Wrexham and its once struggling club firmly back in the spotlight.
They reached the Wembley final in 2022 and narrowly missed out promotion after finishing second in the National League.
The club’s duo are also striving to give women’s football a boost and recently announced they will attend Wrexham ladies team’s match against local rivals Connah’s Quay Nomads tomorrow.
