About Joe Alwyn
Joe Alwyn, whose full name is Joseph Matthew Alwyn, is an English actor. He began his acting career in the past decade just after he graduated from the University of Bristol and then the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.
He gained popularity when he began dating Taylor Swift and with his leading roles in box-office hits such as The Favorite, Boy Erased, and Mary Queen of Scots, thanks to which he also received several awards and nominations such as Cannes Festival, Critics Choice Movie, and Satellite Awards.
“I wasn’t one of those kids who get up on the table and dance at a young age, but I always wanted to be an actor.” Joe Alwyn
He was born in Tunbridge Wells, Kent on 21 February 1991. He was raised in the North London areas Crouch End and Tufnell Park. Joseph’s father is a documentary filmmaker and his mother is a psychotherapist. “When I was growing up, my dad was away a lot. He did a lot of work in crisis zones, places like Uganda or Rwanda. My dad would come back from a faraway land with bows and arrows and spears wrapped up in a carpet… that was cool,” he has said.
He is the great-grandson of the well-known English composer and conductor William Alwyn. During his early childhood, he was an introverted child that developed an interest in acting in the late 1990s. In the late 2000s, specifically in 2009, Joe graduated from the City of London School. During his teenage years, he signed up for various acting and drama schools. He also became a member of the National Youth Theatre.
While he was attending the University of Bristol (where he studied English literature and drama), he acted in a few student productions. His most notable role is in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. In 2012, he earned a Bachelor’s degree in acting at the Royal Central School of Drama and Speech.
In early 2015, just a few weeks after his graduate showcase, he won the auditions for the role of Angela Lee in the 2016 war drama Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk. The following year, he began dating Taylor Swift and appeared in several of her music videos such as Reputation and Lover, both of which have been heavily influenced by him.
Thanks to his relationship with Swift, Joe Alwyn not only gained international popularity and millions of followers but also earned a lot of money. He received acting opportunities and took part in several films such as The Sense of Ann Ending, Operation Finale, and The Favourite. His portrayal of the role of Samuel Masham in the latter, combined with his other appearances, earned him an estimated $1.8 million and he also won his first two prestigious awards – a Critics Choice Movie Award and a Satellite Award.
In 2018, besides his role in The Favorite, which further boosted his popularity, he also landed roles in the films Boy Erased and Mary Queen of Scots. In 2019, he joined the cast of another biographical drama – Harriet, which along with the other three films, amassed $197.8 million at the box office. That year, he also made his television debut as he starred in the BBC fantasy miniseries A Christmas Carol and appeared in all three episodes of the show.
In 2020, Alwyn starred in Taylor Swift’s music video for the song “Folklore” as well as her Netflix documentary film Taylor Swift: Miss Americana. Apart from these projects, he also starred in the BBC miniseries Bridesheads Revisited. He’s also appeared in the drama films The Souvenir Part II, The Last Letter from Your Lover, and Emily.
