Who is Lucy Boynton?

Lucy Boynton is a 28-year-old actress who was born in New York and brought up in London. Her father Graham Boynton is an editor of the Telegraph Media Group and her mother Adriaane Pielou is a travel writer. Despite getting her first big break at 12, Lucy has kept a relatively low-profile in the showbiz world and Rami is her first known celebrity romance.

What films has Lucy Boynton been in?

Film and TV fans will recognise Lucy's face, as she has been on our screens since she was just 12 years old - playing a young Beatrix Potter in the 2006 film Miss Potter. She has since starred in Sing Street, The Blackcoat's Daughter, Rebel in the Rye and Murder on the Orient Express. She also starred as Astrid in Netflix's comedy-drama, The Politican.

One of her most notable roles was playing Freddie Mercury's wife, Mary Austin, in the award-winning Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody. Speaking about her character in a behind-the-scenes interview with Flicks and the City, she said: "I think one of the main things that attracted me to the part of Mary was the dynamic that she and Freddie have and had throughout his entire life and their lives together. Although it started off as a romantic relationship, it is something that is so much deeper."
