Anya Taylor-Joy, a British actor, has chosen to keep a low profile on the celebrity front. Mostly because of her roles in Emma and Netflix's The Queen's Gambit, which won the actor awards at both the 2021 Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards, the public's interest in her continues. But what about the actors' lives away from the cameras? Well, according to reports, Taylor-Joy just married her musician beau, Malcolm McRae.
Taylor-Joy spoke to Elle about her boyfriend's return from work in April 2021, saying, "This was the safest position." A few weeks later, Page Six discovered him kissing actor and musician Malcolm McRae in New York City ahead of her May 22 hosting gig on Saturday Night Live.
The couple's first Instagram mention of each other took place in summer 2021, according to Elle. On July 1, McRae shared a photo of Taylor-Joy with the caption, Im besotted. During the 78th Venice International Film Festival, the couple's film Last Night in Soho reportedly received a five-minute standing ovation.
McRae shared their first photo together in October 2021, wearing a reflection while holding hands, with the caption Oof, supremely happy. In March 2022, they kissed on the The Northman red carpet in Londons Leicester Square.
Taylor-Joy talked about McRae in a lovely interview with British Vogue. She said, "Ive finally found someone who will happily sit in silence with me reading." Were basically 80 years old and 7 at the same time, and it works really well.
Taylor-Joy explained why she chose not to disclose much about her personal life, including who she's dating, in her 2018 interview with the Guardian. There's a beauty in being anonymous. We're actors, so I'm interested in others. It's a bit daunting, but I try not to think about it.
Anya Taylor-Joy is one of those people who has acquired skills in the actor's current life.
Taylor-Joy uploaded a photo of her and Macken embracing each other to her Instagram grid in July 2017, prompting engagement speculation. In December 2017, the couple was photographed out for a romantic dinner complete with public kisses and the same ring on Taylor-Joy's finger.
The actor wore the pendant until the 2018 Met Gala, which she attended without it on. She hasn't been seen with it on since. The two have apparently gone their separate ways.
The Daily Mail mentioned Taylor-Joy to photographer Ben Seed, who goes by the name Pip, in a conversation in May 2020, before taking a stroll in London. Neither Taylor-Joy nor Seed have publicly admitted the relationship.
Taylor-Joy may be a while till she reveals more information about her current relationship. However, in the meantime, we can still enjoy Taylor-Joy's many on-screen romances.
