Everything you need to know about Anya Taylor-boyfriend, Joy’s musician Malcolm McRae
27-year-old Malcolm McRae was born in Alabama but relocated to Los Angeles a few years ago. His Spotify profile states that he is a musician and actor by trade:
“Malcolm had lately fallen in love with a young lady and had followed his stupid heart, abandoning everything to go to Los Angeles.” Well, his heart was wrong. The relationship was a shambles.”
Malcolm is a member of the duo More, which also includes Kane Ritchotte. The band has been active for almost three years and has just signed with Warner Records. According to the band’s Spotify bio:
“Within a week of meeting, the two understood that the music they created together was more than each of them could make alone.”
McRae told American Songwriter that he was working as a paralegal in California when he created the words to one of his songs, Elaborate Attractions while working at a desk job. The song was inspired by his father, an investment banker. McRae’s father died while he was just 18 years old, according to reports.
“He studied classics at an Ivy League university, so the connection to Joseph Campbell is where we got the video. We wanted it to be the journey of an antihero. We intended to make all 17 stages of Campbell’s hero journey exceedingly tedious jobs with an incredibly modest reward for each task. It represents the song’s theme of nature vs nurture.”
McRae is an actor in addition to being a musician. According to his IMDb, Malcolm achieved the title of Over All Young Actor in 2006 after being chosen from a talent competition among 1000+ competitors at the age of 12. His filmography includes the films Brotherly (2008) and How’dy Do You? (2020). In terms of his personal life, the actual day and year he began dating Anya Taylor-Joy is unknown. In a 2019 interview with Vanity Fair, the actress said that she went through a bad breakup while filming Emma.
“I’d just had a heartbreaking breakup before shooting [Emma], and it had questioned everything,” she said. “I was simply tremendously insecure and quite uncomfortable in my own flesh.”
However, she initially revealed that she was seeing someone in March 2021 during a zoom chat with Elle Magazine.
“My boyfriend had just returned from work and was shifting all of his stuff around, so this was the secure area.”
Anya Taylor-Joy did not divulge the identity of her significant other at the time, but The Sun claimed in July 2021 that the couple had been living together. They made their formal red carpet debut at the Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty in February 2022. Anya Taylor-Joy discussed Malcolm in an interview with British Vogue a month later. Taylor-Joy enthused about her connection with Malcolm, describing it as a “passion.”
“I consider reading as something I must do.” He enjoyed it since he is similar. I’ve finally found someone who would sit quietly with me while I read. We’re practically 80 and seven at the same time, and it works well.”
As of yet, none of them has announced their engagement or marriage.
