In early July, rumours began swirling about Emma Corrin and a newly single Rami Malek spending time together. But what could’ve been a sweet friendship or just an English summer fling seems to be getting more serious. While there hasn’t been any hard evidence to support the rumours of a romance, the Bohemian Rhapsody star and The Crown alum have finally given us all the confirmation we need: sharing a kiss while taking the dog for a stroll together in London. Does it get any more domestic?
In photos obtained by the Daily Mail, Corrin, 27 and Malek, 42, can be seen enjoying each other’s company in the sun before leaning in for some PDA. Corrin sported a fresh buzzcut while wearing a light trench coat over a sweater and jeans, while Malek, in a similar look, kept casual in a blue baseball cap and zip-up knit.
The outing comes after months of speculation regarding the nature of their relationship. Though they’ve been pictured hanging out, the only proof that it could be more came from an unconfirmed source who spotted the two packing on the PDA while dining at a restaurant together in Kent, England, in early August.
“They were very passionate and looking into each other’s eyes,” the eyewitness told The Sun at the time. “They kissed and didn’t seem to mind who could see.”
Malek most recently dated actress Lucy Boynton for five years. The two never confirmed their split but hadn’t been seen publicly together since February 2023.
On the other hand, Corrin hasn’t been publicly linked to anyone since July 2021, when they were photographed holding hands with set designer Njoya while out and about in London.
The My Policeman star, who identifies as non-binary, opened up in an interview with Vogue about dating and feeling “intense pressure” to justify their LGBTQ+ identity. “I’m working out all this complex gender and sexuality stuff. And yet, I’m seeing a guy?” they explained. “That feels very juxtaposed, even if I’m very happy.”
They also spoke about their experience dating women and how much it’s helped them navigate it all. “My first date with a girl, they were like, ‘Oh! You’re a baby queer!'” they told the outlet. “It was amazing. We actually didn’t end up seeing each other again, but she really gave me the lowdown.”
