AceShowbiz - Anya Taylor-Joy is said to have secretly married Malcolm McRae. The actress known for her role as Beth Harmon on "The Queen's Gambit" reportedly got hitched to the 27-year-old musician at an intimate ceremony in a U.S. courthouse.
Following the nuptials, the 26-year-old actress then, according to Page Six, travelled to Australia to continue filming "Mad Max: Fury Road" prequel "Furiosa". The site added Anya's representative did not return requests for comment.
Anya first sparked rumors she was engaged to Malcolm in June when she was seen with a diamond ring on her wedding finger. The couple are believed to have been dating for the past year. Sources told Page Six they are planning to have a bigger ceremony when they return to the United States.
Anya and Malcolm made their red carpet debut together at the Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty in February, with the actress giving her first public comment about her partner 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."
Malcolm recently posted a photo of the pair dressed in Dior at the Vanity Fair party on his Instagram. He said, "I'm f****** proud of this girl." The musician has also posted a picture of them posing in front of a window.
Anya became a household name with her performance in the Netflix miniseries "The Queen's Gambit", receiving a Golden Globe and SAG Award for her work on the show.
Her exes are rumored to have included Irish actor Eoin Macken and photographer Ben Seed. She, however, has said she prefers to keep her private life under wraps. In March 2018, she told The Guardian, "There's a beauty in being anonymous."
"There's a reason why we're actors, we're playing other people," she went on reasoning, "so I think the idea of someone being interested in me - I'm quite a private person - is a bit daunting, but I try not to think about it."
