Rami Malek and Emma Corrin have made their romantic relationship public for the first time, seen enjoying a cozy dog walk together in London on Thursday.
The 42-year-old Oscar-winning actor leaned in for a kiss with the 27-year-old star of “The Crown” after reports surfaced that they had been quietly dating. Emma, who identifies as non-binary, was bundled up in a long taupe trench coat and showcased their new buzz cut hairstyle as they got close to Rami. Just last month, sources suggested that Emma and Rami had been on a series of affectionate dates, following Rami’s reported separation from Lucy Boynton, 29.
The couple didn’t appear to be concerned about onlookers as they shared a kiss during lunch at the Buoy and Oyster restaurant in Margate, Kent. A witness described the scene, saying, “They were very passionate and looking into each other’s eyes. They kissed and didn’t seem to mind who could see,” adding, “Rami and Emma just seemed totally besotted with each other and paid no attention to anyone else.”
During their lunch, they reportedly ordered a £125 seafood platter along with two bottles of upscale wine.
Their romance became more noticeable when they were first seen looking close at Bruce Springsteen’s BST Hyde Park concert in London on July 8. They sat together, with Rami seemingly placing his hand on Emma’s knee. However, Rami sparked rumors when he was later photographed holding hands with an unidentified blonde, just hours before his apparent date with Emma.
MailOnline has reached out to representatives of Rami and Emma for comment.
This news follows reports of Rami Malek and his former co-star Lucy Boynton’s breakup after over five years together. Confirmation of their separation came after months of speculation, as they hadn’t been seen together since the BAFTA Awards in London in February. According to a source, the couple drifted apart earlier in the year.
Lucy, who portrayed Mary Austin in “Bohemian Rhapsody,” attended Wimbledon on her own, whereas in previous years, she and Rami had attended together. Rami was then spotted enjoying drinks at a pub in Notting Hill, West London, with Dominic Cooper, 45, from “Mamma Mia!” and Rachel Brosnahan, 33, star of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” with no sign of Lucy. Later, Rami and Rachel, who is married to U.S. actor Jason Ralph, were seen strolling through nearby Primrose Hill, laughing and holding plastic glasses of what appeared to be rosé wine.
