Malcolm McRae Parents: Lesley And William McRae

Meet Lesley and William McRae, the parents of Malcolm McRae who is the husband of actress Anya Taylor-Joy. Are his parents still together? How old are they? Do they share any other children?

We’ll be tackling these and some other questions in this article below.

Who Are Malcolm McRae Parents?

Malcolm McRae, who married the actress Anya Taylor-Joy, comes from a family of five. His parents are named Lesley McRae and William McRae. His parents reportedly met at Princeton University and married at King’s Chapel in Boston on 19 November 1988 by the Rev. Ernest W. Cockrell, an Episcopal priest.

At the time of their marriage, Lesley was a freelance designer of fashion accessories in New York and William was an associate at Morgan Stanley & Company in New York.

They welcomed Malcolm on 16 April 1994. According to Malcolm’s IMDB biography, at the age of 12, he “was ‘discovered’ at the AMTC (talent competition), among 1,100 hopeful actors, where he won Over All Young Actor, 2006.”

He played Gene Grady in the 2020 movie How’dy! and acted in the 2008 short Brotherly. But McRae’s primary passion is music. According to his IMDB page, he sings “pop, folk, rockabilly, and musical theater” and plays “guitar and piano.” McRae promotes the music of his rock band More on Instagram, most recently sharing a video of him performing the song “Settled In” in April.

Malcolm and Kane Ritchotte, formerly of Portugal The Man, formed the duo More, which has a recording contract with Warner Records. The band has been together for more than three years and is verified on Spotify. Last summer, they released the first part of their two-part EP, called 1/2. McRae discussed his relationship with Ritchotte and the making of 1/2 in an interview with Rain magazine that was published in July 2020.

According to images of the celebrations published by Daily Mail on October 2, the Queen’s Gambit star wed fiancé Malcolm in an elegant wedding in Italy over the weekend. Guests Cara Delevingne and Julia Garner were present at the wedding, and Anya can be seen wearing a stunning beige gown in the photos.

When she and the musician were seen kissing in New York City in May 2021, their relationship officially began. In October of the same year, Malcolm—a member of the rock band More—posted a picture of themselves holding hands with the actress and labeled it, “supremely happy.” This was the couple’s Instagram debut. The couple appeared to be engaged by July 2022. Anya, 27, was wearing a ring on that finger at the time while out with Malcolm, 29, in Sydney. (She apparently shot the Mad Max: Fury Road prequel Furiosa with Chris Hemsworth and Tom Burke while in Australia.)
