Anya Taylor-Joy: Who is London reared Peaky Blinders actress who plays Gina Grey & did she marry Malcom McRae?

The 26-year-old was born in Miami but was raised in London - she holds both USA and British citizenship.

Peaky Blinders star Anya Taylor-Joy reportedly ‘secretly’ married Malcolm McRae.

The 26-year-old, who boasts an incredible CV with high-profile roles in The Queen’s Gambit and Peaky Blinders just to name a couple, is currently filming ‘Furiosa’ in Australia.

The Split actress sparked engagement rumours in June 2022 as she was pictured with a massive engagement ring on her wedding finger, but it is not known how long she and her musician beau were engaged for.

With the two officially tying the knot, here’s where they got married, when they first started dating and who her husband is.

Sources reportedly told Page Six that the pair plan to have a bigger ceremony in the United States when filming for Furiosa, which is earmarked for release in 2024 is all wrapped up.

How long have the pair been dating?

Again, it’s hard to pinpoint exactly when the pair first got together, but Taylor-Joy confirmed that she was dating the musician back in 2021 during an interview with ELLE.

It’s been a milestone year for the couple, who made their red carpet debut together at the Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty in February, with the actress also giving her first public comment regarding her then-boyfriend in March to British Vogue.

She said: “I’ve finally found someone who will happily sit in silence with me reading. We’re basically 80 years old and seven at the same time, and it works really well.”
