Who is Malcolm McRae, Husband of Anya Taylor-Joy?

According to reports, the actress from The Queen’s Gambit Anya Taylor-Joy has secretly married her partner Malcolm McRae. The couple reportedly got married in a small courthouse ceremony, according to Page Six. Though we know very few specifics about the marriage. 


Who is Malcolm McRae?

McRae is a 27-year-old, musician and an actor. According to McRae’s IMDB page, McRae “was ‘discovered’ at the AMTC (talent competition) amid 1,100 other hopeful actors at age 12,” where he won the award of Over All Young Actor award in 2006.

Malcolm McRae’s primary passion is music

According to his IMDB page, he sings “pop, folk, rockabilly, and musical theatre” and plays “guitar and piano”. From his Instagram we find, McRae plugging rock band More’s music and a more recent video of him playing his song “Settled In” in April.

McRae and former ‘Portugal The Man’ member Kane Ritchotte

formed the duo More, which has a recording contract with Warner Records. The group has been together for more than three years and has Spotify verification. Last summer, they distributed the first half of their two-part EP, 1/2.

But he hasn’t made a lot of film appearances. He starred in a 2008 short film, Brotherly. Also, he played Gene Grady in Howdy!, which came out in 2020.


McRae is originally from Alabama

If we move ahead to More’s Spotify bio, McRae came to Los Angeles from the South a few years back for his then-girlfriend. As the band wrote, “Malcolm had only recently fallen in love with a young woman and followed his foolish heart, dropping everything to move to Los Angeles. Well, his heart was mistaken. The relationship was a disaster. But the music that followed wasn’t.”

Malcolm McRae and Anya Taylor-Joy’s relationship

Taylor-Joy and McRae started dating early in 2021. In an interview with Elle that April, the actress virtually confirmed their relationship by referring to him as her “partner.”

We could witness that Taylor-Joy and McRae’s relationship was still going strong when the two were photographed by the paparazzi kissing in Venice, in September 2021.

The due made their public debut at the Vanity Fair Oscar party

in March of this year. McRae also joined Taylor-Joy on the red carpet for the premiere of The Northman in April.

McRae and Taylor-Joy’s engagement

Taylor-Joy has always kept her love life very discreet, although it’s believed that she began dating musician McRae a little over a year ago. In June, Taylor-Joy was photographed with a green-colored engagement ring. That sparked a lot of engagement rumors around them.

The newlyweds intend to hold a more formal wedding when Anya returns to America from filming Furiosa, the Mad Max: Fury Road prequel, in Australia, according to Page Six.


“I’ve finally found someone who will happily sit in silence with me reading,”

Anya Taylor-Joy said in an interview.
