Taylor Swift is rumored to be dating British actor Joe Alwyn.


Swift, 27, has been keeping herself out of the spotlight in recent months, reportedly because she has been spending time in London with her new beau. Alwyn, 26, is an up-and-coming actor whose breakthrough role was the title role in Ang Lee‘s WWII drama Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk. The film was released with mixed reviews, but Alwyn starred alongside Kristen StewartVin Diesel, and Steve Martin.

Alwyn grew up in North London and still lives with his parents – his mother a psychotherapist, his father a documentary filmmaker. He and Swift have apparently been hanging out at a house that Swift rented nearby.

And just because he is relatively unknown now, many believe he will become Hollywood’s next big star. He recently appeared alongside Jim Boradbent and Charlotte Rampling in The Sense of an Ending. He also just wrapped filming with Emma Stone on The Favourite. To advance his acting career, the Brit studied acting and theater at both the Royal Central School of Speech in London, and Drama and City of London School.

“It’s really nice to have people excited about…me,” he told People after getting attention from his work in Billy Lynn. “But it’s hard to get caught up in that. Maybe it’s just my nature. I just want to take things a day at a time.”

In addition to acting, Alwyn has done some modeling as well. He did a shoot with Mario Testing and Gigi Hadid for Vogue in 2016.
