How did Boynton meet Rami Malek?

Boynton and Malek met on the set of 2018’s Bohemian Rhapsody – a film that would earn him an Oscar for Best Actor.

Malek portrayed Freddie Mercury, the British rocker who was the lead singer of Queen.

Boynton played the part of Mary Austin, Mercury’s one-time girlfriend and life-long pal.

They met while filming in 2017 and started to appear on the red carpet together the following year.

“He is so into her,” a source told US Weekly in 2018.

“He goes and visits her in London all the time.” 

What have the pair said about each other?

Malek spoke of his girlfriend in January of 2019 during the Palm Springs International Film Festival while receiving an award.

“Thank you, Lucy Boynton. You have been my ally, my confidant, my love. Thank you so much,” he said, according to Elle.

In February 2019,  Malek kissed Boynton after it was announced he had won the Oscar for Best Actor for Bohemian Rhapsody. Taking to the stage to make a speech, he said:

He said: “Lucy Boynton, you’re the heart of this film,”

“You are beyond immensely talented. You have captured my heart. Thank you so much.”

In an interview with Net-a-Porter in September 2019, Boynton opened up about Rami’s success.

She said: “It’s lovely to see people who are excited about his work — if they’ve seen Mr. Robot or [the] Freddie [Mercury biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody] — but it’s just that thing of people grabbing him,”

“I mean, you’d never grab a complete stranger in the street. And I think there’s a sense of ownership.”

They were seen having a date night at a hockey game in New York City in February of 2020, according to The New York Post.
