Anya Taylor-Joy is the latest celebrity to travel in Australia before filming commences on a new film in New South Wales. But not before she could cause a little commotion. The actress disembarked a private plane in Sydney on Sunday and flashed her hand with what definitely appeared to be a ring on her finger.

“She bounded off the plane and then seemed to flash the ring at her driver before getting in the car,” an eyewitness told the Daily Mail (see the photos here). “She was either showing off the ring or doing a dance move. Either way, she looked ecstatic.”

The 26-year-old travelled in a brown knitted top and pants underneath a checked coat paired with chunky black boots (because it really does get cold in Sydney). She also carried a backpack with a white cat nestled inside.

Taylor-Joy, while notoriously private, has been dating beau Malcolm McRae from rock band More for just over 12 months. The couple went ‘Instagram official’ back in October before they walked the red carpet for the first time at the Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty in February. They’ve been spotted together several times since then as the actress promoted her newly-released film, The Northman.

She briefly addressed the relationship in an interview this year, saying, “I’ve finally found someone who will happily sit in silence with me reading. We’re basically 80 years old and seven at the same time and it works really well.”

The “Queen’s Gambit” star will appear alongside Chris Hemsworth and Tom Burke in the upcoming Mad Max prequel Furiosa from Academy Award-winning filmmaker George Miller. The film is being shot in Australian and will be distributed globally by Warner Bros.
