As her star in Hollywood rises, Anya Taylor-Joy has done all in her power to keep her personal life under wraps.
Taylor-Joy, who plays the Queen in The Queen’s Gambit, was pictured making out with musician Malcolm McRae in New York City only weeks before she was set to headline Saturday Night Live in May 2021. Since Taylor-Joy mentioned having a partner in her ELLE May 2021 interview, the photographs have prompted relationship speculations.
Who is Anya Taylor-Joy Boyfriend?
The May 2021 sighting of Taylor-Joy and McRae in New York City — just days before Taylor-Joy’s hosting debut on “Saturday Night Live” — prompted dating speculations between the two.
The “Last Night in Soho” star took some time to acknowledge their relationship, but in an interview with Elle published in April 2021, she indicated that she has a new boyfriend. “My partner’s just come back from work, and he’s moving around all of his equipment, so this was the safe spot,” she said, explaining why she was doing the interview in her bathroom.
In July of 2021, McRae made the first public reference to his girlfriend Taylor Joy by posting a photo of her on Instagram with the remark “I’m besotted.” On the balcony of their hotel in Venice, Italy in September 2021, the pair was spotted kissing once more, this time by the Daily Mail.
At Vanity Fair’s Oscars afterparty in March 2022, the two also made news for the first time on the red carpet. Once again, Taylor-Joy chose McRae as her date for the premiere of “The Northman” a month later. Since then, they’ve acquired a cat as a couple and posted several Instagram images of themselves together.
Taylor-Joy and McRae’s relationship was first suspected to be romantic in June 2022 after she was spotted with a ring on her finger. Despite neither party confirming the allegation, Page Six reported the following month that the pair had secretly tied the knot in a judicial ceremony.
The Daily Mail announced Taylor-Joy and McRae’s wedding to the world from Venice in October 2023. Neither partner has commented on the report.
Is Anya Taylor Joy Married?
Anya Taylor-Joy is a married woman.
The actress reportedly married her two-year lover, Malcolm McRae, in the fall of 2023, as evidenced by photographs obtained by the Daily Mail. The pair apparently got married in the Italian city of Venice.
At the CAA pre-Oscar party in West Hollywood, California, in March 2022, Taylor-Joy and McRae made one of their first public appearances as a pair. The next month, the star of The Queen’s Gambit kissed her McRae at the premiere of The Northman, causing much more of a sensation than usual.
The pair attended the 2023 Golden Globes together. As a result of her performance in The Menu, Taylor-Joy received a nomination for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy.
“I’ve finally found someone who will happily sit in silence with me reading,” she said of McRae to British Vogue in April 2022. To paraphrase, “We’re basically 80 years old and 7 at the same time, and it works really well.”
Who is Malcolm McRae?
McRae and Kane Ritchotte, formerly of Portugal. The Man, play as a duo under the moniker More*. In July of 2020, they dropped the EP “1/2,” and in September of 2021, “2/2.”
McRae stated to RAIN Magazine that they spent three years perfecting their initial release. “Kane and I were doing solo projects individually and had a few songs we had written and recorded separately. We met up and decided it was fun to write together and bring our songs together,” he explained of the band’s origin. “So we finished ten songs over about three years.”
The vocalist uprooted his life in Alabama to follow his love in California “two years ago,” according to the band’s bio on Spotify. “Malcolm had only recently fallen in love with a young woman and followed his foolish heart, dropping everything to move to Los Angeles,” the bio explains. His emotions, though, were off. That connection failed miserably. The music that followed, however, was not.
