Mandy Moore reunited with her ex-boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama after bumping into each another at work.

The actress is currently filming her new TV drama This Is Us in Los Angeles, and she saw a familiar face across the lot this week, as Wilmer started his new role on long-running crime series NCIS.

Mandy and Wilmer dated for two years from 2000 to 2002, but they have remained friends and clearly enjoyed unexpectedly crossing paths again on Wednesday, when they stopped to take a quick photo together.

Sharing the snap on Instagram, the actress wrote, "Sometimes you get to work on the same lot as your friends and you can run over, catch up, and watch them continue to be a bad-a** (in real life and on TV). Love this guy. Friends for over 16 years."

Mandy, 32, then shared her excitement at Wilmer's new gig, adding, "Congrats on @ncis.cbs,@wilmervalderrama! Can't wait to watch you this Fall!!"


The former That '70s Show star also posted the image online, and revealed the feeling was mutual with a sweet caption of his own.

"A Paramount Studios moment..," the 36-year-old began. "When one of the most special people just so happens to be shooting her show @nbcthisisus at the same lot you're shooting @ncis_cbs.. Love you Mandela!"

He then encouraged fans to tune in to This Is Us when the series premieres in the U.S. in September.

"Ps. Word in (sic) the street is she ROCKS the screen on her show! Can't wait for the world to see the talent you are," he continued. "Like you said, 16 years (of friendship) and another 16 to go.. And then another 16 after that.. Plus maybe 16 more to add to those last 16.. Ummm let's throw another 16?... After all those?"


The exes previously enjoyed catching up last autumn, when they spent the day at Universal Studios' Halloween Horror Nights theme park event.
