The 37-year-old English actor who’s brilliant portrayal of Sherlock has landed him several blockbusters was spotted cozying up with the gorgeous model. He officiated a wedding for two gay friends in Ibiza and was spotted with Elizarova, 27.
When asked about it, Elizarova said

Does that mean they are dating? Things happened that’s for sure! Now magazine reported that Elizarova is “believed to be his girlfriend” and that the two were seen “smooching” and “cozying up.”
Celebrated for her natural golden hair and enchantingly vivacious nature Katia was born August 17, 1986 in Saratov, Soviet Union. She has a younger sister named Alisa who is 22-years-old.
Katia E, was discovered at age 14 in her hometown like many models she started traveling and learned that with the glamour comes a whole lot of responsibilities. She has modeled for Chanel and Versace and replaced Lily Cole as the face of designer fashion label Max Studio.
Katia who arrived in London 10 years ago, lives in Chelsea and took a law degree at St Mary’s University, recently starred in Sunstroke, a play based on short stories by Anton Chekhov and his close friend Ivan Bunin; and said she would love to make acting her career.
