Rami Malek seemingly confirmed his rumored relationship with fellow Bohemian Rhapsody star, Lucy Boynton.
According to billboard, the pair were both in attendance at the Palm Springs International Film Festival’s Film Awards Gala, although they both arrived separately. During the event, however, Malek publicly acknowledged the relationship in his acceptance speech.
Malek opened by saying, “I’m just really honored to be here, so thank you to the Palm Spring Festival. It’s a privilege, it’s not lost on me and I’m so appreciative.” Malek then turned to Boynton and continued. “Thank you, Lucy Boynton. You have been my ally, my confidant, my love. Thank you so much.”
During filming for Bohemian Rhapsody in 2017, the two first became acquainted. In the film, Malek starred as Queen front-man, Freddie Mercury, while Boynton portrayed Mercury’s first fiancee Mary Austin. Rumors about the relationship began back in April 2018, after reports circulated that Malek was making trips to visit Boynton.
