"A lot of that emotion was very real for me. I think I was in love with Kristen (Bell) for the three years we made that show. Like, I truly felt like I would die without her, and I think that's what underlined everything people loved about them as a couple." Veronica Mars star Jason Dohring on his on-screen romance with titular star Kristen Bell on the cult TV series. Dohring and Bell have reprised their roles for a fan-funded Mars movie, which hits cinemas in March (14).
