I’ve got a very mixed race background so, although I’m not actually Asian myself, I’ve got distant touches of Indian in me. That’s quite an interesting point – you will be more likely to take on Asian roles because that’s the demographic here.

Now, moving on to his personal life, he is dating his 30-year-old Scorpion co-star Katharine McPhee. The couple shared some romantic moments in August, 2014 on the set of Scorpion the show. Their love story came in the limelight when a Scorpian set picture showing the gorgeous actress hand pressing Elyes buttocks at the same time kissing his neck- got out publicly. Officially, Katherina is still a married woman as her divorce request is still pending. 

Anyways, Katherina’s husband Nick Cokas evidence backed divorce paper hints Katherina cheating on him when they were still together. However, Katherina’s May, 2014 divorce paper states that they separated on 15 March, 2013-which contradicts with Nick’s. According to Nick, 47, they separated in May, 2014, which supports his case that claims that they were still married when the kissing picture of his wife/ Smash actress Katherina and a married man namely Smash director Michael was pictured.

 As of 2014, Elyes affair with Katherina has surely been a talk of the town every now and then. Despite the scandal, Micheal Morris, 56, is still married to his wife of ten years namely Mary McCormack, with whom he has three children.  Consequently, the ending of 7 years of marriage of Nick and Catherina has opened the door for Elyes and Katherina to continue their romance as loving boyfriend and girlfriend. On the other hand, if the court gives decision in favor of Nick, it will be proved that Katherina has cheated on him and thus, she may have to pay a heavy money to him.
