Check mate! If you haven’t started The Queen’s Gambit, what are you waiting for? I know this highly-anticipated miniseries about a fictional female chess prodigy was just released a few days ago, but you’ll definitely want to stay at least three steps ahead with this one, and for good reason.
Of the series, a reviewer for Forbes has said, “I did not imagine I would be so enthralled by a show about a young woman playing chess in the 1960s.” We’d tend to agree with that feeling.
This entertaining, edgy, and enthralling drama set in the Cold War era will likely surprise you in more ways than one. Just keep watching. The Queen’s Gambit is a brain teaser and crowd pleaser worth keeping your eye on, especially when it comes to the star of the show, Anya Taylor-Joy.
The series is an adaptation of Walter Tevis’ novel of the same name from 1983. For those familiar or unfamiliar with the book, one of the biggest takeaways to come out of this adaptation has definitely been the incredible performance by 24-year-old Taylor-Joy.
Understandably so, fans are eager to learn more about The Queen’s Gambit star in real life, too. So if you’ve ever wondered who the Anya has been linked to, you’re in luck.
Here’s what we know about Anya Taylor-Joy’s love life.
Who was Anya Taylor-Joy engaged to?
Though it doesn’t appear she confirmed the news herself, it was reported that Taylor-Joy was engaged to actor, filmmaker, and model Eoin Macken. He directed the 2020 film Here Are the Young Men, which stars the New Mutants actress.
In 2018, a Reddit user asked the community if Taylor-Joy was still engaged, to which someone said they had heard they broke up, and that her engagement ring was no longer on.

Most recently, Taylor-Joy was linked to photographer Ben Seed. According to reports from the Daily Mail, the couple were spotted stepping out for casual outings together while in the middle of “London Lockdown,” looking very cozy.
But that was reported back in May, so she could be single now.
