On Sunday, she and her spouse, 30, attended the New York Knicks vs Chicago Bulls game.

Their sighting came just weeks after she revealed they tied the knot in secret during an intimate ceremony in New Orleans in April 2022, not in Venice in October 2023 as believed.

‘We did our research, we were like pretty spy-orientated,’ she told Entertainment Tonight of keeping their nuptials under wraps. ‘But honestly, it just it kind of made it all the more special ’cause it just felt like a secret that we got to keep to ourselves.’ 

The star had a ‘magical’ wedding day, with her and Malcolm exchanging vows just in front of their ‘two best friends’, but they were happy to celebrate their union with wider friends and family at a later date.

She said: ‘At the end of the day, it was about the two of us and so we ran away with our two best friends and had the most magical day possible.

‘But I was also very grateful that a couple of months later we were able to celebrate with our family.’

Anya revealed her secret nuptials in an Instagram post celebrating her second wedding anniversary with the 29-year-old musician on April 2.

She wrote: ‘Two years ago, on April Fools, I secretly married my best friend in New Orleans. The magic of that day is ingrained in every cell of my being, forever.

Malcolm also shared his own tribute on social media after the announcement was made.

He wrote: ‘I love you now and somehow I always have and somehow it will never end Happy two year anniversary (yesterday), beautiful.’

It had previously been reported that the couple had said their vows in a lavish ceremony in Venice, Italy and photos from that time show the Dune: Part Two actress in the same Dior gown shared in her social media post but she had always referred to her husband as her ‘partner’ until now.

Anya has rarely spoken about her relationship with Malcolm since they began dating, having been first spotted together in New York.

They have managed to maintain a healthy relationship despite living on opposite sides of the Atlantic, with Anya largely based in London, while Malcolm, who also acts as well as being in a band, lives in the US.

Speaking about their relationship to British Vogue in March 2022, Anya said: ‘I said to my partner the other day that he was my hobby. I see reading as something that I have to do. He loved it because he’s the same.

‘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.’

Speaking about the distance, she added: ‘Yes, it is [hard], but it’s also kind of great because when you’re together you’re really valuing the time that you have.

‘Everyday mundane activities are so full of joy. I love going to the petrol station with him and filling up.’

Anya was born in Miami, Florida and moved to Buenos Aires as a toddler before relocating to London at the age of six ‘for political reasons’ with her parents, banker father Dennis – a Scot born in South America – and Spanish-English mother Jennifer who hails from Zambia.

Her role as orphaned chess prodigy Beth Harmon in the Netflix series The Queen’s Gambit elevated her into one of the most in demand actresses in Hollywood, having bagged a Golden Globe for Best Actress and the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Miniseries or Television Movie.

She received another Golden Globe nomination for her role in black comedy movie The Menu, starring alongside Nicholas Hoult and Ralph Fiennes, and is playing the lead in blockbuster action movie Furiosa, the prequel to 2015’s Mad Max: Fury Road.
