As her reputation in Hollywood rises, Anya Taylor-Joy has maintained as much of a private existence as she can. Be that as it may, in front of Queen’s Gambit actress’s Saturday Night Live hosting show in May 2021, Taylor-Joy was captured making out with performer Malcolm McRae in New York City.
The photographs ignited dating bits of gossip and came after Taylor-Joy talked about having a partner in her ELLE May 2021 interview. Even though Taylor Joy first refrained from saying it out loud, she and McRae weren’t exactly secretive about their relationship in the city. The couple was reportedly photographed holding hands and kissing many times as they strolled around New York City, according to Page Six. The obvious question is, who is Anya Taylor-Joy’s partner who has captured our queen’s heart? Let’s find out, but first, let’s briefly review Anya’s reputation in the acting world.
Anya was only 17 when she made her acting debut in the 2014 comedy-horror movie Vampire Academy. She did not, however, appear in the finished film. The drama series Endeavour gave her her first television role the following year.
She received accolades and praise for her breakout performance in the 2015 period drama/horror thriller The Witch. She co-starred with James McAvoy in M Night Shyamalan’s 2016 film Split, which became her first financial hit. She played the same part in Glass, the sequel to the movie (2019). She became a household name because of her popular Netflix series The Queen’s Gambit.
Who Is Anya Taylor-Joy’s Partner?
The IMDB bio for Malcolm McRae states that at the age of 12, he was ‘found’ at the AMTC (talent competition) among 1,100 hopeful performers, where he won Over All Young Actor in 2006. But the actual subject of McRae’s work is music. According to his IMDB bio, he sings “rock, pop, folk, rockabilly, and musical theatre” and plays “guitar and piano.” In April, McRae posted a video of himself performing the song “Settled In” for his Instagram followers. The rock band ‘More’ is music promoted by McRae.
More is more of a partnership than a band because Malcolm met former Portugal The Man member Kane Ritchotte and inked a deal with Warner Records. They have been producing music for more than three years, and Spotify has even validated them. The first half of More’s two-part EP, 1/2, was released last summer.
He claimed to have been a paralegal in Pasadena, California, according to an interview, where he even claimed to have written the lyrics to the song “Elaborate Attractions” while on the job. On March 11, 2022, McRae, who is Anya Taylor-Joy’s partner now, recently shared that he composed his new tune, “Really Want to See You Again,” only two days before meeting Taylor Joy.
In the Instagram video, he sings, “I know that I’m high now, but I’ve gotta get this out.” “We have similarities that I think are hard for me to put into words, but given more time, I might be able to. Should we ever be together? I want what is right, but I want it right now, and I believe that we both want the same thing.”
Are Anya And Her Partner Married Or Not?
The couple’s engagement was announced just a few weeks after the singer and actor was spotted with the Queen’s Gambit actress in Sydney when she was wearing her green diamond engagement ring. At the time, a bystander described how she seemed to be so happy, “Before getting in the car, she appeared to flash the ring at her driver as she hurried off the airport. In any case, she appeared thrilled.”
The couple was seen kissing once more in September 2021, but it was in Venice this time. Taylor Joy also made her red carpet debut with McRae at the after-party of Vanity Fair Oscars in March 2022, talking about their romance in an interview. The two took things a step further and secretly wed in July 2022, and a source informed Page Six.
Early in 2021, Taylor Joy and McRae started dating, and the actress basically confirmed their relationship by referring to him as her “partner” in a discussion with ELLE that April. She discussed their distance relationship in more detail with British Vogue in March 2022, saying, “Yes, it is challenging, but it’s also sort of wonderful because you value your time together so much. Our days are filled with the easiest, happiest things. I adore filling up the vehicle at the gas station and going for breakfast with him”. Since they started dating at some point last year, the pair have kept their relationship under wraps and has only sometimes been seen in public.
The two are very supportive of one other’s professional endeavors and even share the same birthdays. The two were reported as “practically living together” by July 2021, and it appears that they are now married. According to some reports, Anya married Malcolm “in a small courtroom ceremony.” The prequel/spin-off to Mad Max: Fury Road, Furiosa, which also stars Chris Hemsworth, is now being filmed. The actress married her partner before departing for Australia to finish filming.
