Rumors have swirled that the couple tied the knot in secret after Anya was photographed on several occasions in Sydney wearing what appears to be a wedding ring, but she has yet to comment on the speculation.
According to Page Six, the couple tied the knot in July in a US court ceremony.
It was claimed at the time that they had secretly married her boyfriend Malcolm McRae after a year of dating.
The couple confirmed their relationship at the Vanity Fair Oscar party in late March last year.
The Queen’s Gambit star first sparked engagement rumors in June last year when she was spotted sporting a dazzling diamond on her ring finger.
It was confirmed in July of last year that the actress and the musician were married in a modest ceremony in a court in the United States.
Anya and Malcolm were said to be planning a bigger ceremony with friends and family once the actress finished filming the Mad Max: Fury Road prequel Furiosa in Australia and was able to return to Los Angeles for a longer period.
The source claimed that the actress returned to Australia shortly after the wedding to resume filming on Furiosa, a prequel to Mad Max: Fury Road.

She plays a younger version of Charlize Theron’s character in the earlier film, due for release in May next year, in which Tom Hardy took over the lead role from Mel Gibson’s Mad Max.
The couple were rumored to be engaged after Anya was spotted in June wearing what appeared to be a diamond ring on her left ring finger and has since been in the same ring multiple times after the reported wedding.
Malcolm, an Alabama native, has dabbled in acting, but his main interest is playing guitar and piano in his rock duo More alongside bandmate Kane Ritchotte.
In July 2021, The Sun reported that McRae had “virtually moved into (Taylor-Joy’s) Los Angeles home”.
Anya has been mostly silent about their relationship, but she offered a rare comment about him to British Vogue in March when she described some of her favorite activities around the home.
“I told my partner the other day that he was my hobby,” she said. “I see reading as something I have to do.
He loved it because it’s the same. I finally found someone who will happily sit quietly with me reading. We are basically 80 and seven at the same time and it works really well.
She also noted that the occasional long-distance nature of their relationship could be testing her, though it seems they’ve made it.

‘Yes, it is (difficult), but it’s also great because when they’re together they really value the time they have.
‘Daily mundane activities are so full of joy. I love going to the gas station with him and filling up the car and going to breakfast,” she added.
The couple became Instagram official in October when McRae shared a sweet photo of the two of them on his Instagram account.
“Ugh, supremely happy,” he captioned a sweet photo of himself holding hands with Taylor-Joy as they glowed in a reflection in a window.
