He seems to have come out of nowhere, and, in fact, he has. When 26-year-old British actor Joe Alwyn snagged the lead role in Ang Lee’s 2016 war drama, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, he was a complete unknown still in acting school. And in a film cast with heavy-hitters like Garrett Hedlund, Kristin Stewart, and Vin Diesel, Alwyn was just as surprised as everyone else when he was tapped to play the conflicted young American soldier, Billy Lynn.

 

He certainly hit the mark in that film because within a year of its release, Alwyn’s career is hot as he is. Just ask his girlfriend Taylor Swift, who wrote her single, Gorgeous, all about how much she loves (and hates) his pretty face and deep blue eyes.

We all know that Taylor is never wrong, just ask Miuccia Prada, who has hired Alwyn to be the face of the Spring 2018 campaign, Ascension. In the black & white video ad (above), we see the agile young man jumping around the rooftop of Milan’s Osservatorio, where the Italian designer’s exhibition space is located.

Keeping the flame on high, next year, Alwyn appears in four films, including the historical drama, Mary Queen of Scots, with Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbieand The Favourite, another royal drama surrounding the court of Queen Anne, with Emma Stone, Nicholas Hoult, and Rachel Weisz.

Looks like as long as Taylor keeps writing her flattering tunes dedicated to his handsome mug, Joe Alwyn will be on our radar for years to come.
