Alwyn was born on February 21, 1991 in Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent, England. His mother is a psychotherapist while his father is a documentary filmmaker. He is also the great-grandson of the composer William Alwyn. Alwyn grew up in North London and attended the City of London School. He took music lessons while he was young and briefly was a member of a school band called Anger Management. He also played football and rugby while in school. However, he was more interested in acting despite being introverted. In his late teens, he became a member of the National Youth Theatre. After high school, he attended the University of Bristol where he pursued a Bachelor of Arts in English literature and drama. During this time, he acted in two student productions at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. He received his degree in 2012 and then applied to four different drama school and was accepted by the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. There, he completed a B.A. in acting.
Just before graduating from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, Alwyn was cast as the lead role in Ang Lee’s 2016 war drama film “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk.” The film is an adaptation of the 2012 novel of the same name by American writer Ben Fountain. Film critics praised Alwyn’s performance for his naturalism and it was considered to be his breakout role. He then went on to play a supporting role in the 2017 mystery drama film “The Sense of an Ending” directed by Ritesh Batra.
In 2018, Alwyn appeared in a number of films. He had a role in “The Favourite” alongside Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz, Emma Stone, and Nicholas Hoult. The film earned 10 nominations at the 91st Academy Awards. He also portrayed character Klaus Eichmann, the son of German Nazi official Adolf Eichmann, in the historical drama “Operation Finale” which also featured actors Oscar Isaac and Ben Kingsley. Alwyn had a minor role in the biographical drama film “Boy Erased” based on the 2016 memoir by American LGBT+ activist Gerrard Conley. He also appeared in the historical drama “Mary Queen of Scots” alongside Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie. To acknowledge all of his professional work that year, he was awarded the Trophée Chopard at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival.
In 2019, he was cast as a slave owner in the film “Harriet,” a biographical drama about American abolitionist Harriet Tubman. He also appeared in the dark fantasy television miniseries “A Christmas Carol.” In 2021, he appeared in the film adaptation of “The Last Letter from Your Lover” based on the novel by Jojo Moyes. In 2022, he appeared in the drama series “Conversations with Friends,” a Hulu adaptation of the 2017 novel of the same name by Irish author Sally Rooney. He also appeared in the films “Stars at Noon” and “Catherine Called Birdy.” He has also been cast alongside Riz Ahmed in the modern adaptation of William Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” also starring Willem Dafoe.
In addition to his acting career, Alwyn has also ventured into music, in part due to his years-long former relationship with singer Taylor Swift. He co-produced some of her songs like “Exile,” “Betty,” “My Tears Ricochet,” “August,” and “This is Me Trying” on Swift’s eighth studio album, “Folklore.” He also co-wrote a couple of songs under the pseudonym William Bowery, including “Exile.” The track was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance while the album “Folklore” won the Album of the Year Award. He also co-wrote, as Bowery, a number of songs on Swift’s album “Evermore.” He also worked with her on her tenth album, “Midnights,” co-writing the track “Sweet Nothing.” It was revealed in 2022 that he had chosen the name William Bowery as a nod to his great-grandfather, the composer William Bowery, and in recognition of the New York City neighborhood Bowery where he had spent a lot of time upon first arriving in the United States.
Alwyn generally keeps his personal life quite private as he has discussed his dislike of the media’s invasion of privacy. “The Wall Street Journal” has called him Hollywood’s Most Private Leading Man. However, it is known that Alwyn was in a romantic relationship with singer Taylor Swift from 2016 to 2023. Media publications were particularly keen to gain insight into their relationship, especially considering Swift had been more public about her past relationships, but the couple generally kept their relationship out of the media. However, it was still the subject of constant tabloid scrutiny. Swift wrote a song, “Lavender Haze,” which discussed the rumors about their relationship. In April of 2023, it was confirmed that the couple had ended their relationship.
