Having stayed single following the demise of her short-lived romance to Tom Hiddleston in September last year, the 27-year-old Blank Spaces hit-maker is said to have started dating Joe a few months ago.

Just exactly who is the young Brit who has managed to capture the heart of one of the world’s most powerful young women?

Joseph Matthew Alwyn, better known as Joe, is a rising talent from London.

Aged 26, Joe was born in London according to his short biography on IMDB, and is believed to still reside in the city – though he is represented by CAA in the states and Independent in the UK. He graduated from the National Youth Theatre before studying at the University of Bristol and London’s Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.

Starring in this year’s The Sense of an Ending, Joe worked alongside the likes of Charlotte Rampling, Michelle Dockery and Jim Boradbent.

The pair have reportedly been an item for a while, having first started off as friends, and it would seem that both Taylor and Joe have been very upfront and honest about their relationship when it comes to their family and friends.

“This isn’t a new couple alert or a secret relationship – the only people this has been a secret to is the media because all of us, Taylor and Joe’s closest friends and their families, were aware they have been together for several months and have known each other for a long time.”
