Thomas Grant Gustin, the star of hit TV series The Flash, married his fiancée Andrea Thoma in a customary wedding in Sabah, Malaysia this month, The Star has reported.
According to the Malaysian news website, Gustin, 28, and Thoma, 29, arrived in Sabah on December 17 and returned to the United States on December 28.
The report said that the couple was here for a wedding at Thoma’s family home in Penampang, but had also visited Gaya Island.
Ohio-born Thoma, a physical therapist, is half-Kadazan from her mother’s side. She is said to be able to speak some Malay and Kadazan, and enjoys having belacan shrimp paste.
Both Gustin and Thoma posted photos of themselves on their Instagram accounts during thetrip.
Thoma posted photos of the resort they stayed in on Gaya Island, while Gustin’s photo showed him in front of buildings, which fans quickly identified as in Kota Kinabalu.
According to The Star, many locals recognised the star but did not approach the couple to respect their privacy.
Gustin picked up some simple Kadazan words along the way.
“I have also been told that the people here can roll their tongues and pronounce ‘rrrrr’ well,” The Star quoted him as saying.
The couple is believed to be planning a wedding reception in the US too.
