It’s official — Bohemian Rhapsody costars Lucy Boynton and Rami Malek are dating! On Jan. 3, Rami confirmed their romance at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. While accepting the award for breakthrough artist, he thanked Lucy for her support, adding, “You have been my ally, my confidant, my love.” At the Golden Globes on Jan. 6, the couple continued to be award season’s sweetest duo, and as Rami celebrated yet more wins at the SAG Awards and BAFTAs, he snuck a kiss from Lucy before heading to the stage.
Rumours of them dating have been swirling for nearly a year. Now that they’re confirmed, we have a whole new appreciation for their on-camera moments in the Freddie Mercury biopic. In the film, Rami takes on the role of Freddie Mercury while Lucy plays his lesser known muse and former partner, Mary Austin. Freddie was known to write a string of songs for Mary, including “Love of My Life” from Queen’s 1975 album A Night at the Opera.
Rami and Lucy’s public embraces are even sweeter off screen, so read on for a look at the duo’s real life romance.
